NATO should’ve been tossed in the same grave as the Soviet Union, but for some reason, it hung around. Russia is no longer a threat to anyone, it spends in an entire year what the U.S. spends on defense in a few weeks.
NATO is expensive, but the greatest danger of NATO lies in the war guarantees each member has from every other member. If a NATO country is attacked, it’s up to every other NATO country to come to their aid. It is just as insane as it sounds. Is the defense of all those 28 NATO member states worth the lives of American soldiers?
The question with Trump should be: would he, in fact, dump NATO? Probably not.
