NATO condemns Trump’s comments on encouraging Russia to attack allies

# The North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has condemned former US president Donald Trump’s comments, saying it remains ready and able to defend all allies. At a rally in South Carolina on Saturday, Trump said he would encourage Russia to do whatever the hell they want to any Nato member country that does not meet spending guidelines on defence. Nato says any suggestion that allies will not defend each other undermines all of its security, including that of the US, and puts American and European soldiers at increased risk.
