After meeting with DonaldTrump earlier in the week as part of a group of Republican congressmen and other DC power figures, Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) said Friday that Donald Trump raised serious issues about NATO, reports The Blaze.
“He raised some serious questions about the U.S. and NATO. I share some of those questions,” Cotton said in an MSNBC interview. “We used to split our costs 50-50 between the U.S. and Europe. Today it’s 70-30 between the U.S. and Europe. I would have a different approach. Rather than reducing our spending on what is a critical national security alliance, I would urge European leaders to increase their spending specifically so we can stop the kind of terrorist attacks we’ve seen in Paris and Brussels.”
Bottom line: There is no Trump plan to dismantle NATO. It's about how the bill will be paid and how much will overall NATO spending be.
