Trump tells NATO to rely on their own defense and implies support for Putin’s actions

Trump’s Controversial Comments Raise Alarm Over US Commitment to NATO, Nikki Haley Questions Age and Mental Capacity of Trump, and Biden.

Amidst a global crisis, former President Donald Trump is questioning America’s commitment to its allies. In a recent speech, he revealed that during his presidency, he told European leaders that the US would not defend their countries if they were attacked by Russia. He emphasized that NATO members need to pay their debts and stated that when he was president, the US would not lift a finger to defend their countries if they were attacked by Russia. This has caused concern among NATO members and others who rely on US support for their security.

The NATO alliance was established in 1949 as a collective defense agreement. Trump’s insistence that NATO members “owe money” is based on a misunderstanding. Although NATO countries agreed to devote at least 2% of their gross domestic product to their defense 18 years ago, most countries, including the largest, did not comply with this agreement. During his presidency, Trump focused on this matter and showed minimal interest in the actual security of NATO.

Trump’s announcement has worried countries along the possible front line with Russia and America’s military and political partners from Northeast Asia to the South Pacific. This explicit announcement violates the US’s signed international obligations.

Meanwhile, Trump’s opponent in the Republican primaries, Nikki Haley, is now putting the question of age and mental capacity at the center of her election campaign. Although the polls continue to put her far behind Trump, she is highlighting the age and mental capacity of both Trump and Biden. The constitution requires a presidential candidate to be at least 35 years old. This condition was established when the average life expectancy of men in North America was 28. There were of course people who reached extreme old age, including former presidents
