NATO’s Challenge Is Germany, Not America

Victor Davis Hanson, National Review

Germany demands that the United States continue to be the largest funder of NATO and yet has an unfavorable view of America — and an increasingly favorable view of NATO’s supposed common threat, Russia. Other fearful European NATO nations are used to being dominated by Germany and either keep quiet or follow its lead. This is the NATO that Trump inherited and that he tried to shake up with his customary art-of-the-deal antics.
