Trump’s NATO comments send shivers across war-torn Europe

Published

on

Former U.S. President Donald Trump has ignited a firestorm of criticism from top Western officials after suggesting that the United States might withhold protection from NATO allies who fail to meet defense spending targets.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg condemned Trump’s remarks, stating, “Any suggestion that allies will not defend each other undermines all of our security, including that of the US, and puts American and European soldiers at increased risk.”

Polish Defence Minister Wladyslaw Kosiniak-Kamysz echoed these sentiments, emphasizing that NATO’s principle of collective defense, encapsulated in the motto “one for all, all for one,” must not be undermined.

Allied countries

He warned against jeopardising the credibility of allied countries, emphasizing that such actions weaken the entire NATO alliance.

Germany’s foreign ministry also weighed in, emphasizing solidarity with its allies through the message “One for all and all for one” on social media. EU Council President Charles Michel expressed concern over the impact of Trump’s remarks on NATO’s security and solidarity, stating that such reckless statements only serve the interests of Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Article 5 of the NATO treaty, which outlines collective self-defense, underscores the obligation of alliance members to come to each other’s aid in the event of an armed attack.

 

Political rally

Trump’s comments, delivered during a political rally in South Carolina, recounted a hypothetical scenario in which a NATO member asked for U.S. protection after failing to meet defense spending obligations. He suggested that he would not defend such a country, stating, “You gotta pay.”

In response to Trump’s remarks, White House spokesperson Andrew Bates condemned the former president’s stance, labeling it as “appalling and unhinged.”

Bates emphasized that encouraging invasions of allied countries by hostile regimes endangers American national security, global stability, and the domestic economy.

While NATO members have committed to spending at least 2% of their GDP on defense, only 11 out of 31 members have met this target, according to NATO estimates.
