Trump has been trying to pull out of NATO for most of his presidency, which would be a gift for his boss Vladimir.
Fortunately, the House just voted overwhelming (357-22) to protect out participation in the alliance.
Both Mike Pompeo and John Bolton are NATO supports, but it's not clear if Mitch McConnell has the balls to do the right thing in the Senate. Since he has FINALLY started to criticize Trump lately, it IS possible that our NATO ties will be secure for a while yet. Since even most of the Republicans in the House voted for the measure, it seems more likely that the Senate would follow suit.
US Pulls Out Of Cold War-Era Nuclear Treaty, Blaming Russia.
Here we go again; sure let the arms race start all over again; what about China? But yeah the Russians are well ahead of the US related to super fast missiles. It must irritate the war "industry" here. Let's step out of all the treaties, because Obama did a lot of them. Hallejuja, what an isolated "island" country have we become. We "know" everything better, ask Trump.
See what "cold wars "cost": But yeah Trump spends even more. ( billions turned into scrap)
Al Jazeera published a lengthy story about NATO this morning:
Not surprisingly, NATO members consider Trump as NATO's "most urgent, and often most difficult, problem". Meanwhile, Trump's bosses in the Kremlin have said NATO is a security threat in Eastern Europe and regard it as a hostile military bloc.
