Trump on NATO

Reader comment on item: Blowback from Criticizing Trump

Submitted by Jeffrey Sheff (United States), Jul 22, 2016 at 15:55

Daniel Pipes replies:

Your critique of NATO is justified. But Trump's remarks are not. One fixes things through the system, not by making unilateral statements.
