While we wait for your question, Mona Ibrahim, can you find the glaring mistake in your second sentence? "And that’s although trump’s opposite opinion to NATO."

Before we worry about the grammar, I'm sure you can spot the capitalisation error!

I would like to know if there are any grammatical issues in my sentence above. Appreciate your support in advance.

Don't forget that you need to include your question or request in post #1 of every thread.

"And that’s although trump’s opposite opinion to NATO." What do all proper nouns begin with? :)
I get it now it should be "Trump" is that only the issue ?

No, it's not the only problem.

"And that's although Trump's opposition opinion to NATO" doesn't make any sense. What do you think it means? Look carefully at the word "although". It's not the word you need.

And that’s although Trump’s opposite opinion to NATO.

"Although" is incorrect. As written, the sentence is ungrammatical. The word you need is "despite".
