Donald Trump said he is not against the dissolution of NATO

56
The candidate “for candidates” (for presidency) of the United States from the Republican Party, Donald Trump, stated that he would not mind if the North Atlantic Alliance ceased to exist in its current form. According to Trump, NATO was created to confront the USSR, which no longer exists, and all the statements that NATO is "fighting terrorism" have nothing to do with the original ideology of the alliance.


Donald Trump said he is not against the dissolution of NATO


Trump is confident that NATO is too expensive for American taxpayers, moreover, not reflecting the interests of American citizens.
The republican candidate believes that there are quite a few countries in the alliance that by definition are not able to at least somehow help to solve the tasks of general security. Donald Trump declares that a number of countries "get off with purely symbolic contributions, expecting reliable protection from the United States."

Trump, speaking in Wisconsin to his supporters, quotes Reuters:
Many NATO countries do not pay their fair share, and the bloc itself is outdated. The bloc was originally created to confront the USSR, but the USSR is no more. There was no talk of any terrorism then. Nato conceived under the fight against terrorism? To date, not the countries that are needed are included in (NATO).


Trump did not say what specific countries he had in mind. But even without specifics, everyone guessed who they were talking about.

Trump:
The United States provides their security, provides them with money, military protection. They just use us. What are we doing? Nothing! In order for these countries to remain in the alliance, they first need to pay off their past debts. If they do not want or can not - let them go! If it destroys NATO, so be it.


On Facebook, Trump made the following entry:
Let's make America great again!


After such statements from Trump, the authorities of the Baltic countries must have seriously strained, realizing that they do not want this candidate to head the States after the upcoming presidential elections there. After all, if the United States is really engaged in reformatting the North Atlantic bloc, then for the separate democratic Baltic (and not only Baltic) states, this could be a “infarction” surprise.

      Given that in the states donkeys and elephants are practically the same thing, it seems that Trump was specially put up for election so that Clinton won, in contrast, so to speak. Zhirinovsky also sometimes says smart things, but a sane person is unlikely to represent him in the role of president. what

          US presidential candidates say what voting people want to hear. All this, at first glance, chatter is actually strictly measured verbal food in accordance with previously studied public opinion. The goal is to win the sympathy of the voter who has these opinions. If Trump talks about this, then among his voters there is a large group of people who will like the dissolution of NATO.

            VKS! 08.54. On the one hand it is. But life is multifaceted and there are other aspects of the issue. In my Europe, they are stupidly going to merge and prepare the ground for this. They are most likely going to make European Afghanistan there. Iraq and Libya. In the event of a war in Europe, the elves simply shrug their shoulders, sort it out yourself. But we can provide a land lease. In general, they are going to drive Europe into the Stone Age. What do you want? Purely aftermarket! Competitors must be crushed! And Europe, whatever one may say, is a technological competitor of the USA.

        I think that Trump will not be chosen. Not that power system in America. Trump is really an independent guy and if he is chosen, then Kennedy’s fate is guaranteed to him.
        I allow myself to disagree with Vladimirtsy on one point: the fact that Trump was put up for contrast. This is not necessary there. They do not care who wins, their election performance for the citizens of the country, no more. And to expose for contrast the uncle, who himself is a billionaire and has good chances - this is to create a rather strong smut). It is likely that he will try to cut the strings of the puppeteers and act as a real leader, rather than a fake figure to satisfy the ambitions of the electorate.

          Maybe you are right, only big money is not only great opportunities, but also a great dependence on even more money. Especially in the Western economy, Trump cannot depend on anyone. Trump is also a man of the system, just not like ours - political, but economic. hi

          Mityok! 06.48. Well, why not choose? The US system is an evil-kind system. Wonderful invention! People are constantly fooled. The chosen servant tightens the nuts so that there are no riots, after a certain time Robin Hood appears and promises to fix everything. Everyone believes him and the cycle repeats. Trump is not such a Bill to cut golden eggs. In my opinion, he is simply rushing things. Level Europe with the hands of the Europeans themselves. After all, a very profitable business is pecking at killing competitors with the hands of competitors themselves.

        hi It's not just about contrast. Trump is at his peak among voters, but with these statements he is digging his own grave, which the arms lobby in Congress will help him to do. On the other hand, it is quite possible that the next populist slogans for ordinary Americans on the topic of saving taxpayers' money. And Obama also promised that he would withdraw troops everywhere, close Guantanamo, Reset (and the button was "overload" - and so it happened) relations with Russia, etc. You have to promise something!

      As long as the candidate, he can talk about anything. But this is how he gets into the presidential stall, and they put a bridle on him if he starts kicking. As the good old cynic George Freeman (the former owner of Stratfor) once said, the US President (unlike Putin) is a decorative figure in many ways and has many restrictions, ranging from Congress to the Federal Reserve (these are institutions, and there are also laws and all lobbies of varying degrees of officiality). Well, and then the one who limits and controls.
      And let's pay attention to the wording "not against" - if someone starts to dissolve this NATO, then he has no objections, but this does not mean at all that he will twitch in this direction (although he believes that there is something must be changed).

If, as he himself claims, Trump, the hero is a loner, then respect is respected, and if someone is behind him, then bravo to the guys who realized that political shocks will come after economic shocks, so urgently need to shade the manual and brainless Clinton , shocking a reckless rebel ... so that she, in the end, would sit in the Oval Office!

        Zyablitsov! 07.05/XNUMX. Be careful about fantasies. Trump and Clinton bend the same line but using different methods. Trump offers to flood Europe, Clinton Russia. Who will electors support? But in any situation, the headache of Russia will be provided. Here the question is which technological rival should be scored first. Europe or Russia? Europe gives technology to Russia. Russia is a consumer of technology. By this logic, Europe must first be crushed as a more developed competitor to the United States.

      -------------------------
      A good example of how the thesis about foreign policy is easily turned into an internal one. Saving, let’s say, it sounds great, but in practice it is not feasible. Because NATO has become an element of the military occupation of Europe, or maybe it was from the very beginning, contrary to its declared goals. To carry out such a maneuver, it will be necessary to overcome a large legion of military officials from the Pentagon, NATO and the CIA. In the opposite direction, there will be huge resistance from the military-industrial complex in the person of Northrop Grumman, Lockheed, Boeing and other corporations that replicate weapons, and high-tech ones. Headlines will float towards "Trump wants to disarm America, Trump takes away American jobs, Trump is against modern technologies, Trump leaves European allies naked in the face of Vladimir Putin's aggression." Then provocations may follow, where Trump, who has a beautiful young wife and thousands of participants in beauty contests that he sponsors, will be caught in the "rape" of an unremarkable Creole woman. Well, or they will ascribe some fact of "corruption" to him. This is roughly the scenario for our Donald Trump, if he implements his election rhetoric in life.

    Even they, in the USA, have financial problems. Apparently, in the traditional US business, you can't earn a lot in wars, so they try to transfer their troops to "self-financing" - you don't give income, don't give a damn to you and pay, to breed poverty.

Small deliveries of weapons, little competition between the rebels (as a bonus, shooting and reducing the population). Competition for cheaper supplies of nishtyaks to the West, a corral in Stone Age technology and, as a result, technological lag. Therefore, the income from wars among the high elves is huge. And quite by accident in Europe there were many refugees! Well, purely by accident! And quite by accident, Europe is flooded with weapons!

    This guy is not stupid. The dissolution of NATO would be a great step towards a world that hangs in the balance because of the current shabby US politicians who dream of conquering the whole world. Nobody could ever conquer the whole World and the USA will not be able, but the policy of the current administration of the USA and H. Clinton is a direct road to the Third World War.
