97 to 2, the Senate votes to confirm NATO membership.

(CNN)The Senate took a bipartisan swipe at President Donald Trump on Tuesday when it overwhelmingly approved a motion of support for NATO.
The 97-2 vote reflects the broad concerns on Capitol Hill over Trump's seeming ambivalence about the alliance and his commitment to it.
The vote came the same day Trump arrived in Brussels, Belgium, for a summit of NATO nations and shortly before he heads to Helsinki, Finland, for a one-on-one session with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

This gives me some hope that the Senate will thwart any attempt by Trump to take us out of NATO.

1. Two GOP senators, Mike Lee of Utah and Rand Paul of Kentucky, voted against the measure.



"Why is the U.S. Senate pushing to expand NATO when most of them aren't even paying their fair share? I stand with @realDonaldTrump," Paul said in a tweet.

2. I think this is the biggest story of the day,

 

A lot of Republicans voted for this measure.
