Encouraging Russia to Invade NATO Countries: Will Trump ‘Sell’ the Allies?

President Biden’s experienced leadership has led NATO to be the largest and most vital it has ever been, according to spokesman Andrew Bates. The alliance is a key component of American nationalism, global stability, and our domestic economy.

While Trump was in office, he did not take any real steps against NATO but feared that if he were re-elected, he could damage the core of the alliance and encourage Russian President Vladimir Putin to try military moves against his neighbors. This fear prompted European countries to call for strengthening the military of the European Union independently as a backup in case of loss of American support.

In December 2020, Congress approved a section of the defense budget stating that a president cannot order a withdrawal from NATO without a two-thirds majority in the Senate. However, commentators have warned that this may not be enough to prevent the US from reducing or completely stopping its commitment to NATO. Ivo Daehler, who was the US ambassador to NATO under President Barack Obama, stated that it is important that Congress overwhelmingly supports American membership in NATO.

During his rally speech, Trump came out against foreign aid budget proposals currently being debated in Congress, which include $14.1 billion in security aid to Israel and $60.1 billion to Ukraine. Trump’s direction led Republicans to block approval of aid on grounds they want the Biden administration toughen measures against illegal immigration at the Mexican border even though bipartisan proposals have been drawn up in the Senate to address this issue.

Trump also used Twitter to attack Michael Flynn for disrespecting military families by continuing to demand pardons for his role in former President Donald Trump’s 2016 campaign and subsequent efforts related to Russia probe while serving as National Security Advisor during Trump’s administration.”Michael is stationed here [in Turkey]
