The Senate Just Unanimously Passed A Resolution That Went Directly Against Our President’s Wishes

Although the GOP enjoy a majority in Congress, sometimes it seems they do not back the president.

Established republican senators have opposed President Trump. Perhaps they do not believe in his vision for America.

Whatever the case, the recent Senate vote might have been aimed at Trump himself.

The Senate has unanimously passed a resolution reaffirming the United States’ commitment to NATO, amid President Donald Trump’s aggressive funding requests from NATO member nations.

The resolution, tied to the Iran sanctions bill, states that the U.S. is committed to Article 5 of the treaty and will fulfill any obligations associated with that section of the treaty, which enshrines the concept that an attack against one NATO member is an attack against all members of the alliance…

“Article 5 states that an attack on one NATO nation is an attack on all,” Graham said in a statement.

“This is an important founding principle of NATO and the concept of ‘collective defense.’ Today’s overwhelming vote should reassure our allies and give notice to our enemies that America stands firmly in support of NATO and our Article 5 commitment…”

Trump wants allies who are part of NATO to spend not just 2 percent of GDP on defense, but three percent.

President Trump has been an outspoken critic of NATO members. He has claimed the United States pays more than the rest of them. In the past, he’s even threatened to withdraw from the alliance.

For senators to so aggressively reaffirm their support of NATO could be viewed as a shot against the president. At the very least, it might weaken his attempts at reforming the treaty, so that other members pay their fair share.

Established senators don’t like change. They view Trump’s aggressive plans for reform as a threat. Even changes to NATO—for the better—would upset them. So, it’s not a big surprise that they’d rather express their support for the treaty, rather than back the president’s attempts at fixing it.

But will NATO members pay their fair share? Or will the United States continue to support free-loading countries?

We’ll have to wait and see.

    Maybe if the Leftists and New World Order Governments in Europe spent more time and money on the commitments they have already i.e NATO, instead of filling Europe with immigrants that have no intention of integrating there and costing them millions of Euros. President Trump wouldn’t have to keep on reminding them of their obligations. Remember, the old adage that “If it ain’t broke don’t try fix it” but it is broke, and has been for years. The whole structure needs overhauling for this Century.
