Most Serious Trump Gaffe Yet

In an interview with The New York Times, Trump said the United States shouldn't automatically come to the defense of fellow NATO members if they are attacked unless those countries have paid their bills to the alliance. That approach flies in the face of one of NATO's bedrock principles, Article 5, which requires NATO states to come to the aid of a fellow member under assault.

Government leaders across the political spectrum decried Donald Trump's published statements on NATO today, calling them "ill-informed," and "dangerous."  The article whose link is below has more.

Almost every day during this Republican convention week there has been some controversy or crisis.  When will we the people begin to shut down this illegitimate* candidacy?

Most Serious Trump Gaffe Yet


*This word is used due to the autocratic quashing of the move to have delegates vote their conscience at the Republican convention earlier this week.
