Trump says NATO will not come to rescue if US attacked

Republican presidential candidate former President Donald Trump has said that he does not believe NATO would come to the United States’ rescue if it came under attack, once again voicing his disdain for the military bloc.

 

“We’re paying for NATO, and we don’t get so much out of it,” Trump said on Saturday, speaking to a crowd of supporters at a presidential campaign event in Las Vegas, Nevada.

 

“And you know – I hate to tell you this about NATO – if we ever needed their help, let’s say we were attacked, I don’t believe they’d be there. I know the people,” he added.

 

Trump once again cast doubt on Article 5 of the NATO Charter, which says an armed attack against one member state must be considered an attack against all of them.

 

The recent statement follows a long history of complaints leveled by Trump at the US-led bloc during and after his presidency.

 

In 2017, he aroused controversy in Brussels by saying that NATO is “obsolete.”

 

During his time in office, he repeatedly criticized Germany and other US allies for not spending enough on their military.

 

Similarly, Trump criticized US President Joe Biden for providing military aid to Ukraine during its conflict with Russia.

 

“We don’t have ammunition for ourselves, we give away a lot,” he said last year.
