Trump Calls NATO ‘Obsolete’

President-elect Trump believes more countries are going to leave the European Union and thinks the North Atlantic Treaty Organization is now obsolete, he said in an interview with German newspaper Bild.

“It’s obsolete, first because it was designed many, many years ago,” Trump said of NATO, according to a write-up in Bloomberg. “Secondly, countries aren’t paying what they should,” and NATO “didn’t deal with terrorism.”

The comments will undoubtedly concern America’s allies in Europe after Trump has voiced support for strengthening the United States’ relationship with Russia after he comes into office. It may cause some discord inside his own administration, as retired Marine Gen. James Mattis said during his secretary of defense confirmation hearing this week that Russia’s goal is to destroy NATO.

According to the report, Trump portrayed the EU as a means for Germany to dominate Europe and he thinks the United Kingdom leaving the zone is a sign of things to come. full story
