The US President wrote in press statements: “We must remember that the sacred commitment we made to our allies, to defend every inch of NATO territory, also strengthens our security and gives the United States a fortress unparalleled in the world.” Statement issued on the occasion of the seventy-fifth anniversary of the founding of NATO.

NATO “is the largest military alliance ever,” said the 81-year-old Democrat, who will run for re-election in November, “but it did not happen by chance and it was not an inevitable outcome either.”

Facing him will find Donald Trump. The 77-year-old Republican Pole sparked a state of panic in Europe when he threatened last February not to guarantee the protection of NATO countries against Russia if they did not allocate a sufficient budget for their defense.

He later confirmed that these statements were a means of “negotiating” and putting pressure on the Europeans.

He recently said: “Don't forget that all of this is more important to them than to us. We have an ocean that separates us from some problems.” “Big, beautiful ocean.”
