Who You Gonna Trust? Not NATO as Long as Trump Is President
NICHOLAS KAMM/GettyWith acts of commission, omission and confusion, Donald Trump has done a lot over the last few weeks to undermine the credibility and strength of the United States in the face of Russian aggression. While U.S. intelligence services unanimously assert Russian President Vladimir Putin is waging cyber war on American democracy, and last week's indictments show precisely who and how, Trump gave Putin a pass at Helsinki. Since then, Trump has flip-flopped like a fat goldfish tossed on the floor. And most recently, the White House has allowed the possibility a former American ambassador to Moscow could be interrogated by Russian investigators.

Trump has labeled the most faithful allies of the United States as "foes," and repeatedly attempted to undermine what's left of European unity. Occasionally he backtracks a little bit, perhaps claiming he did not say or mean to say what he said. But the trend lines are clear.

None of his remarks are so dangerous, however, as the way he's called into question the most fundamental aspect  of NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, which is "collective defense." As a result, America's European allies are losing confidence in the United States' willingness to help defend them from the increasingly confident, assertive and aggressive regime of Russian President Vladimir Putin.
