EU foreign policy chief Josep Borrell warns that NATO cannot be a selective alliance after Donald Trump's remarks about NATO's security umbrella in Europe. Trump stated that he would 'encourage' Russia to attack any NATO country that does not meet financial obligations. Borrell emphasizes that NATO cannot depend on the whims of the US president and that it either exists or it does not. Current US President Joe Biden criticizes Trump's comments as 'appalling and dangerous.' NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg also warns that any suggestion of allies not defending each other undermines security.
