If NATO starts doing what they are supposed to be doing they are no longer obsolete.

When he criticized them he believed they weren't doing enough to combat international terrorism, but they have since stepped up their game so now that they are doing their job they're no longer a pointless group.

What have they done differently since Trump's criticism that they weren't doing before?

Quote:
“We have established a new division for intelligence, which enhances our ability to fight terrorism, and working together in the alliance to fight terrorism in an even more effective way,” Stoltenberg said. “But we agreed today, you and I, that NATO can and must do more in the global fight against terrorism.” - NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg

So nato has not been handling counter terrorism for the past three decades? You do realize that this is a departmental change within nato? That no jobs are going to be added? That people previously working in counter terrorism are still going to be focused on counter terrorism?

And I can't help you to actually comprehend the world around you. It seems that we are at an impasse.
