Billionaire Trump, the US presidential candidate from the Republicans, offered to fork out in Europe for those who are waiting for America "protection." If Mr. Trump is lucky to become president, he will provide defense "help" only to those states that will be able to fulfill their financial obligations to NATO. The rest of America will not come to the rescue: they will have to fight the Russians on their own.

Donald Trump, if only he becomes president of the United States, sets the conditions for NATO allies, reports "New York Times". About this, he told reporters in Cleveland.

Billionaire Trump openly raised the issue of US commitment to the principle of "automatic" protection of NATO allies in the event that those attacked. Mr. Trump believes that before helping the allies, attention should be paid to their contribution to the cause of the alliance.

Answering a reporter’s question about “threats to Russia”, about which small Baltic states that have recently joined NATO are very worried, Trump noted that if Russia attacks them, he will decide to help the Baltics only after considering the issue of their commitment to us. ”

“If it turns out that they are fulfilling their obligations to us,” he explained, “the answer will be yes.”

The newspaper reported that such a statement in the mouth of Trump, it seems, sounds the first time. In essence, the presidential candidate has questioned the very foundations of the United States' assistance to their allies. On the other hand, such speeches are quite consistent with his previous statements about the proposed withdrawal of American troops from Europe and Asia, if the respective allies do not begin to “pay more” for the American defense.

According to Trump, he also will not put pressure on Turkey or other allies who have authoritarian regimes in their countries (this is about cleansing among political opponents or reprisals against civil liberties). The United States, the billionaire believes, must first "eliminate the unrest" in their own country, and only then indicate how to live in other countries. “I don’t think we have the right to lecture,” Mr. Trump said. “Look what's happening in our country!”

He further noted that the rest of the world will learn to adapt to his approach. Trump would “prefer” to continue the existing agreements, but only when the Allies stop sitting on the neck of the United States. The era of "American generosity" has come to an end.

European officials were "a bit overwhelmed by his remarks," indicates the publication. After all, “solidarity between the Allies is of key importance for NATO,” the Alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg recalled. He said, however, that he did not want to “intervene” in the question of the American choice, but he immediately added: “Two world wars showed that peace in Europe is important for the security of the United States.”

The newspaper reminds that the United States has created an alliance, which now includes 28 states. The NATO Treaty's 5 article, signed by President Truman, requires any member to come to the aid of another if this other has been attacked. Such a commitment has long been considered the most important element of deterring potential threats in Europe, especially in relation to small and weak countries like Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania, which joined the alliance after the collapse of the Soviet Union.

Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves, one of the leading pro-American rulers in the region, managed to post evidence on Twitter that his small country fulfilled its defense obligations, and said that Estonia had contributed to the mission in Afghanistan.

In conclusion of the interview, Mr. Trump explained that for him America is first of all a “completely new, modern concept”. And he never connected this concept "with the past." He was asked to clarify, and he replied: "We will first of all take care of this country [USA], and only then we will start worrying about everyone else in the world."

The White House has already responded to the defense "demarche" Trump.

Bloomberg cites a statement by White House spokesman Josh Ernest, which he did to reporters.

There should be no mistakes or miscalculations in the issue of "this country" commitment to the cause of the alliance, he said.

Jake Sullivan, senior political advisor to the Democratic presidential candidate, Hillary Clinton, e-mailed "Bloomberg" that the US president "must be the leader of the free world." Donald Trump, as Sullivan pointed out, "apparently does not even believe in a free world." Sullivan believes that Trump, who does not want to support "an iron guarantee for our NATO allies," is "unsuitable" for the presidency and for the role of commander in chief. It is not surprising that Putin wants to see Trump as president just now, Mr. Sullivan elatedly.

Some Russian experts do not think that Mr. Trump’s current statements can be of great importance if he is elected to the presidency.

Political analyst Igor Pavlovsky said "Free Press"That should not be given special importance to the election rhetoric of presidential candidates.

"It is clear that Trump is actively trying to score political points," said the expert. - It begs the parallel with Obama. Recall what he went with exactly eight years ago, when he stood for the first term. The current US president promised to withdraw troops from all the “hot spots” created by his predecessor, to reduce the defense budget. Having received in advance the Nobel Peace Prize, the newly appeared "dove" went on the offensive on all fronts. Including the continuation of campaigns in Iraq and Afghanistan, "humanitarian intervention" in Libya, an adventure in the Middle East, "Maidan" in Ukraine. "

According to the expert, “even the most charismatic president of the United States remains an absolutely non-independent figure”: in the conditions of the separation of the branches of power, the foreign policy course is developed by the State Department, and the head of state has to reckon with this.

“I have a feeling that after the elections (in case of Trump’s victory) we will get the same situation as with Barack Obama,” the expert concluded.

So let us add, despite some anxiety and concern in Europe and in NATO, manifested due to an unusual Cleveland candidate’s statement, it would be naive to believe that Trump, becoming president, would spit on article 5 of the NATO treaty.

Like previous presidential candidates (the same Obama), as well as those potential candidates who came down from the electoral distance before the summer of 2016, Mr. Trump plays on the weaknesses of the current presidential administration, on her miscalculations and mistakes, building on them his own system of criticism . And it cannot be said that the billionaire did not find a vulnerable point in the issue with NATO allies: US citizens are hardly ready to defend (even with money) those of their “allies” who fear “threatening” Russians in Europe, but prefer the question of “defense” It was decided and funded mainly in Washington. In addition, Trump had previously noted that he would get along well with Putin. It is possible that Putin would get along with Trump, for Moscow has no plans to attack the Baltic countries, already tired of waiting for the “aggressors” on their borders.

                Forget the word "friends" in context when applied to politics.

                Trump will do everything that is more profitable than the United States is for sure. But the article explicitly states that Trump cannot be an independent figure. This is more true than false.

                NATO, generally the United States, is only subordinate formally, like a ship has a home port. So it’s not even known who the US is governed by. Everything is confused.

                  Well, of course, formally. Formally, standardization is adopted, the training of senior officers is formally taking place, formal strategic planning, and even tactical planning, at the level of operatively subordinate headquarters. Another question is that for all this the Americans demand money, and Trump did not come up with it. And when there is no money, games in nature begin.

                  The same goes for US "governance". The United States is governed by this country's constitution, whose virginity is maintained by three divided powers — the legislative, executive, and judicial. Accordingly, the bodies of these authorities, the bicameral Congress, the President and the Supreme Court of the United States. Another question is who influences the decision-making of the authorities, but this is a tribute to the fashion that history follows. Today, this is Murdoch's empire, but this does not mean that his power is unlimited and absolute. It is as subject to entropy as any complex system. Therefore, it is quite possible that with the arrival of a new President, Murdoch may lose his influence and even everything in general. This is the paradox of this country.

                  If so, if everything is done as beneficial to the United States, then Trump’s statement is simply amazing. What is the alliance? Which union? NATO is a form of American domination! As it should be - a godfather has money and has power over the gang. Thanks to his gang, he collects tribute from a tradesman (read from around the world), representatives selected by him sell drugs, whores, give out money in growth and break their legs to debtors and destroy those who allow themselves to even squeak against (doesn’t it remind me of anything?).
                  And of course, from the common fund the godfather finances the gang. What is it? Now you will have to pay extra for "happiness" to serve the godfather ?! He's crazy. The bandot will run away from him instantly. Whom did he resist with his "defense" in this case? Russia, with its usual terrible aggressiveness, will offer those who run away, oil, gas, metals, and now good electronics, and everything will be profitable. As a matter of fact, for such nightmarish actions we were declared the Empire of Evil, and the bandos know about this better than anyone else. Yes, and from the attack of the dark legions of the stunning imagination of the military supermachine of North Korea, as well as demon-like Iran, we will somehow cover our good partner. A bonus from a normal oil deal.

For example, this extension has been around for a long time, for today it suits me, I think it is one of the best so far, but I don’t scream about it all over the world, although the ads of the kind that you gave as an example should in my opinion be on sites about their content. Whoever needs it, having visited the site he is interested in, will see it, but the administration of this site makes decisions based on his own considerations and I’m not going to make a complaint to them about this, let alone declare war on advertising, you just don’t want to look at everything here. But it turns out so for you, you need to read your advertisement, so as not to read another. I don’t give a damn about all this from a great height, I just thought that you weren’t here to promote the product.

        Trump, if viewed from the election bell tower and generally pragmatic, is absolutely right. On the other hand, this "rightness" is not from a good life. Probably something with the printing press. From this shaft, unsecured pieces of paper, the amers themselves are no longer at ease. So Trump voices - that although the pieces of paper are so-so, rubbish, they draw them and they also contain all these mongrels.
        This is not interesting, the conclusion is interesting:
        Sullivan believes that Trump, who does not want to maintain an “ironclad guarantee for our NATO allies,” is “unsuitable” for the presidency and for the role of commander in chief. It is not surprising, therefore, that Putin wants to see Trump as president ...

        Trump is right, European countries at times reduced their military budget, and the proceeds went to social programs for their loafers. At the same time, they count on the protection of American troops. In the same way, the wealthy Japan and South Korea have American troops on their territory. There is no reason that they do not pay for it.

        PS American troops have never been to Israel. Our value for America is that we ourselves ensure our security and our interests in the region. No American soldier ever died defending Israel

          Why write about what you don’t know, in the EU in many countries the social program has been cut down (due to refugees). In the countries of cardboard tigers, all that is thrown into service or arrangement for NATO fighters. At the same time, they launch a program according to which people with disabilities will have to work, if the disabled person does not find work, they will be deprived of all payments.

      Trump has consistently stated that he will reduce US foreign debt. And here is a direct link to the content of American bases including the NATO system. It seems a little expensive for them. In fact, he acknowledged that the United States is the master of NATO. Should it then be assumed that NATO is independent, and the United States is not in fact the invaders of Europe, collecting tribute from it for protection against the mythical threat, and dictating to it its conditions in politics?

Neocons, they are Trotskyite lawlessers, they are throwing the United States and other countries into the furnace of World War II for their ambitions. Trump wants to return America to the face of the 1940s and 50s in terms of ideology. That is the traditional values ​​that many Americans want. In general, if Trump will curtail a number of military programs in Europe and withdraw troops, then this will be a big step forward.

    I don’t understand the trump, but why should the Yankees be paid to those who are not going to fight with Russia at all, because Russia has no aggressive plans to seize other people's territories, there is plenty of good for their countrymen, only a purely defensive doctrine, and one should not confuse Russia's participation in international actions to combat with terrorism. In short, the one who will not pay the Yankees for defense services in NATO will remain happily ever after; the tech who pay will guarantee ruin and a nuthouse ...

      It would be interesting to see the specific volume of US arms deliveries for NATO member countries in comparison with general deliveries to other countries. Maybe someone from the members of the forum has such data?

    Radish horseradish is not sweeter, but ... in my opinion, of course, the old woman will increase the speed of the printing press even more, which will not benefit America, and will faster lead to the collapse of her economy. Trump will pursue a more reasonable policy in this sense, and will try I could postpone this collapse indefinitely. But personally, I would have bet on Clinton's reckless rather than Trump's pragmatist. Trump will not unambiguously jump into our arms ©, and it will be difficult to say where he will turn. Grandma is predictable, and therefore less dangerous.

    "Billionaire Trump has openly raised the issue of the US commitment to the principle of" automatic "protection of NATO allies in the event that they are attacked. Mr. Trump believes that before helping allies, attention should be paid to their contribution to the cause of the alliance."
    Is it different now? And the states do not milk the NATO countries, threatening the "Russian threat"?

      This is all the seed. Everyone knows that Europe has no money for defense, everything is eaten up by the social network. So Europe will have to pay the remnants of its industry and its sovereignty. Do not think that Trump is an unwise person, he is primarily a businessman.

    "Protecting you for your money" is a preface. And the afterword will sound like this: "Well, we will protect you for our money, but you will part with the remnants of your sovereignty."

    Estonian President Toomas Hendrik Ilves, one of the leading pro-American rulers in the region, managed to post evidence on Twitter that his small country fulfilled its defense obligations, and said that Estonia had contributed to the mission in Afghanistan.

    Unfortunately, Trump is just a populist. Everyone understands that he will not be able to help any NATO member in the event of an attack on him, but they pretend to believe and are afraid, yeah. If Trump just tries to do something like that, there will be an immediate impeachment, or a lone gunman will appear.

    I ask you not to get excited about the election results. The US electoral system is the most "undemocratic". The electors will determine who will be the president. And the policy is determined by completely different guys.

    In conclusion of the interview, Mr. Trump explained that for him America is first of all a “completely new, modern concept”. And he never connected this concept "with the past." He was asked to clarify, and he replied: "We will first of all take care of this country [USA], and only then we will start worrying about everyone else in the world."

    Two dogs sat on the lawn for their big business and a small dog licked under the tail of a large and terrible dog and only then took care of itself. That's how everything is distributed there.

    Trump is simply not stupid, unlike some of the US presidents who have ruled America recently. EU and NATO assistance implies not only confrontation with Russia, but also assistance in combating the wave of emigrants that engulfed Europe. Here, tough measures and sacrifices are indispensable and Trump just doesn’t want the eviction, isolation, and even elimination of the black-and-white who came to visit not to be linked to the United States. Because all this can spread to America, and now it has enough of its problems without it. A normal American approach is any whim for your money.
