President-elect Donald Trump’s most consistent theme during his campaign for the nomination and then in the general election was that he would renegotiate or withdrawal from various international treaties and agreements in order to get a better outcome for America. The incoming leader of the Free World also has been highly critical of many international security agreements, including some of this nation’s most important and enduring treaties. But his sharpest criticism has been reserved for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). In one of his now infamous tweets, President-elect Trump declared that “it’s possible that we’re going to have to let NATO go.” So, what if President Trump decides to renegotiate the North Atlantic Treaty, NATO’s founding document? I have written more about Trump and NATO for The National Interest here.
