Without question, Trumps in-your-face pressure though uncomfortable for many in Western diplomatic circles has had an impact in overall NATO readiness.

Europe is coming to the realization that they’re on their own so they had better start seeing to their own defense.
We need to get out of NATO. We can create a new alliance if it's needed, but NATO has too many useless countries in it that increase our chances of war that's not in our best interest. It's insane to allow tiny countries near Russia into an alliance where they significantly increase the chances for war, while bringing next to nothing to the fight in the event of war. It's just stupid.
