Joseph Biden, the former US vice president and current front-runner among Democratic presidential candidates, "promised" that if Us President Donald Trump is re-elected, NATO will dissipate sooner rather than later, according to a report by The Washington Times.
During an interview with CNN host Chris Cuomo, Biden said that, “if he wins reelection, I promise you, there’ll be no NATO in four years or five years."
Trump's distaste for NATO has been a hot topic for a few years now. According to a January New York Time
s report, Trump considered withdrawing from NATO several times in 2018.
According to the Times
report, Biden did not hide his distaste when discussing Trump's affinity for cozying up to leaders like Russian President Vladimir Putin and North Korean Supreme Leader Kim Jong-un. Biden suggested that Trump was "absolutely dissing” allies and “embracing thugs.”
A US-led NATO implosion would mean the dissociation of a trade organization that encompasses 29 countries which make up over 70% of the global military spending.
“The idea that we can go it alone with no alliances for the next 20 or 30 years is a disaster,” Biden said.
