Trump backs away from NATO reports:

hinted at a new world order if he becomes president, saying the United States, under his leadership, might not come to the defence of some members if Russia were to attack them.

The Republican nominee said he would decide whether to protect the Baltic republics against Russian aggression based on whether those countries “have fulfilled their obligations to us.” …

Estonian president Toomas Hendrik Ilves tweeted: “Estonia is 1 of 5 NATO allies in Europe to meet its 2% def expenditures commitment. Fought, with no caveats, in NATO’s sole Art 5 op. in Afg.”

Michael McFaul, a former US ambassador to Russia, tweeted: “We have had decades of bipartisan commitment to NATO, which has made it the greatest alliance in history. Trump is now threatening that.”

We all know who Putin will be hoping wins.
