Former head of the Pentagon Mark Esper believes that if Donald Trump becomes President of the United States, he can withdraw the country from NATO and destroy the North Atlantic Alliance. As the former head of the US defense department pointed out in an interview with MSNBC, this could also mark the end of US hegemony.
According to Esperaif this happens, then the “rules and norms” that have been established in recent years will also eventually fall apart.
“There will definitely be a withdrawal of troops from NATO member countries, and in the end this could lead to the collapse of the entire alliance,” said the former head of the Pentagon.
Recently, dissatisfaction with multibillion-dollar spending on aid to Ukraine has been growing in the United States. In this regard, American leader Joe Biden even had to speak with special appeal to the congress.
