Trump's threats to NATO countries: how the world is reacting

Feb 11, 2024

For example, White House spokesman Andrew Bates called Trump's words "appalling" and jeopardizing US national security.

"Encouraging the invasion of our closest allies by murderous regimes is appalling and unreasonable. It jeopardizes U.S. national security, global stability and our economy," Bates said.

The NATO Secretary General also responded to the former US president's words. According to Jens Stoltenberg, the fact that the members of the defense alliance do not protect each other undermines common security. In addition, he said, such statements endanger the lives of American and European soldiers.

President of the European Council Charles Michel said that such statements only serve the interests of the Russian dictator.

"For 75 years, the Transatlantic Alliance has supported the security and prosperity of Americans, Canadians and Europeans. Reckless statements about NATO's security and Article 5 solidarity only serve Putin's interests. They do not bring more security or peace to the world," Michel wrote.

Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk addressed President Andrzej Duda in response to Trump's words.

"Mr. President, perhaps this is a reason to convene the Cabinet Council," Tusk addressed Duda.
"Poland's alliance with the United States must be strong, regardless of who is in power in Poland and the United States. I have always acted in this way and will continue to act in this spirit, respecting all our partners in the United States.Insulting half of the American political scene serves neither our economic interests nor Poland's security," Duda replied to Prime Minister Tusk.
