Republican Sen. John McCain said Thursday that President Trump’s performance at the NATO alliance summit this week was disappointing but not surprising and does not reflect the positions of the rest of the United States.
“There is little use in parsing the president’s misstatements and bluster, except to say that they are the words of one man. Americans, and their Congress, still believe in the transatlantic alliance and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, and it is clear that our allies still believe in us as well,” said McCain, who issued the statement from his home in Arizona where he is undergoing treatment for brain cancer.
The article goes on to state the following:
Trump said the 69-year-old alliance is “very, very powerful, very, very strong” as the summit wrapped up Thursday and declared victory after publicly criticizing member nations and demanding they pay more for their national defense.
However, the outcome and affirmation of the alliance should be attributed to the European allies, McCain said.
“That President Trump signed the Brussels Summit Declaration and ultimately expressed confidence in the future of the alliance is testament to the patience, forbearance, and commitment of our steadfast NATO partners,” he said.
