Republican President Donald Trump continues to do Vladimir Putin’s bidding, according to Foreign Policy.

“In a speech at the opening of NATO’s new headquarters, Trump slammed U.S. allies for not spending enough on defense before an uncomfortable-looking audience of fellow heads of state, and in between sparked awkward run-ins with other leaders that underscored strained U.S.-European relations since Trump took office.”

“’Trump’s behavior at this NATO meeting in Brussels is a definitive win for Putin,’ said Jorge Benitez, a NATO expert at the Atlantic Council who was at the NATO confab. ‘It just increases a lot of the doubts and fears and concerns our allies have had,’ he told FP.”
