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

President Biden’s leadership has led to a stronger and more vital NATO alliance, thanks to his experienced leadership. The fear is that if Trump is re-elected, he could damage the core of the alliance and encourage Russian President Vladimir Putin to try military moves against his neighbors. As a result, European countries have called for strengthening the military dimension of the European Union as a backup in case of loss of American support.

While still president, Trump demanded that NATO countries meet the obligation of allocating at least two percent of their GDP for a defense budget and accused member states of taking advantage of American defense and US taxpayers’ money. Despite not taking any real steps against NATO while he was in office, there are concerns that if he is re-elected, he could harm the alliance. Congress has approved a section of the defense budget that states that a president cannot order a withdrawal from NATO without a two-thirds majority in the Senate, but commentators warn that this may not be enough.

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

The former First Lady also defended her husband during his presidential campaign when she tweeted on Network X: “Michael is stationed to serve our country, something you understand nothing about.” Someone who continues to disrespect the sacrifices of military personnel families has no ability to be commander-in-chief.”
