Donald Trump dropped a bombshell about NATO yesterday in an explosive interview with The Times Of London. He signaled a compete, and urgently needed, strategic realignment of the international force.
“I took such heat, when I said NATO was obsolete.”
“It’s obsolete because it wasn’t taking care of terror. I took a lot of heat for two days. And then they started saying Trump is right.”
Oh my gosh Trump is about to turn NATO from a toothless force that does nothing but spend money into a bulwark against ISIS. Especially in Europe.
This is much needed. We are spending all this money and NATO has so much potential to fight our enemies that it is a disgrace what Obama has done with it.
But Trump, ever the deal maker warned NATO that there would be no more free lunches, especially if Trump uses it to beat back ISIS saying,
“A lot of these countries aren’t paying what they’re supposed to be paying, which I think is very unfair to the United States.”
“With that being said, NATO is very important to me. There’s five countries that are paying what they’re supposed to. Five. It’s not much.”
Yep NATO first you will pay and then Trump will actually put you to work for good in the world.
This is a great new direction, why did this take so long.
