Trump’s threats to withdraw the United States from NATO are unrealistic.

Trump’s threats to withdraw the United States from NATO are unrealistic.

The former US President’s threats to withdraw the country from NATO if re-elected are unrealistic and are intended only to sow fear and uncertainty among allies,  Thom Tillis, co-chairman of the NATO Observer Group in the US Senate said.

“This threat is not real. It is being used as a political tool to create fear, uncertainty and doubt,” the Republican senator said, speaking at a NATO summit in Washington.

Tillis expressed confidence that Congress will never support the US withdrawal from NATO.

Last December, US President Joe Biden signed a defense policy order that included a clause preventing the White House from unilaterally ending the country’s membership in NATO without congressional approval.
