    Time to move on for the Libs........they can only hurt themselves more (if that's possible) by continuing down this path. Win the 2020 election if you want Trump out

    Are you suggesting the US align against a NATO ally.

    Of course he didn’t. Purely an accident. I’m calling BS.

    Trump said he wants to pull out of NATO, so why would you care. Righty zealot graham wants to hit them with "veto proof' sanctions.

    He doesn’t want to pull out of NATO. He wants them to carry their own weight.

    How can you possibly respond with “huh”. This is a charade.

    No President can pull out of a treaty nor commit the country to one (hi, Paris Accords and the Iran Deal).

    Never said anything about Graham so...irrelevant.

    So what is your point?

    NATO is an interesting case and trump asking questions about its utility is a good thing. The Soviet Union, which nato was formed to oppose, has been gone for 30 years. It’s fair to ask why we still need nato.
