Trump: I could pull out of NATO, but that’s “unnecessary”
President Trump was just asked directly he was threatening to pull out of NATO.
A reporter asked: “Are you still threatening to potentially pull the United States out of NATO for any reason, and do you believe you can do that without Congress’s explicit support and approval?
Here’s what Trump said:
“I think I probably can, but that is unnecessary. They have stepped up today like they have never stepped up before.”
