Bolton warned Europe: if re-elected, Trump may withdraw the US from NATO




The former assistant to the US President for national security John Bolton continues a correspondence discussion with the American leader. A week ago, he accused Donald Trump of impotence in the face of coronavirus and now said that if re-elected for a second term, the head of the US administration can withdraw the States from NATO. He expressed this opinion in an interview with the German newspaper Handelsblatt.





“Only a handful of Republicans approve of leaving NATO. But if he [Trump] wins, this barrier can be overcome, “ Bolton believes. “Who knows what he will do during the second term?” — asked the former assistant to the US President.

Bolton advised the EU to maintain diplomatic relations with Washington for the most part through Congress if trump wins the election on November 3.

“The house of representatives and the Senate can oppose the President. If it comes to withdrawing from NATO or withdrawing a significant part of the troops from Europe, this may run into strong opposition from both Democrats and Republicans,” he said.

“In this regard, the Europeans should be advised to turn to Congress,” the former Trump aide said, adding, “ Relying on common sense prevailing in the White House will not be the best strategy.”
