Senate votes to support NATO ahead of Trump summit

Is this a bit of a fuck-you to Dot Don?

Quote:
Lawmakers on Tuesday overwhelmingly voted in favor of a motion supporting NATO, as President Trump continues to criticize the alliance ahead of his summit in Europe.


The nonbinding motion, which came as the Senate voted to reconcile its version of the annual defense policy bill with that of the House, expresses the Senate's support for NATO and calls on negotiators to reaffirm the U.S. commitment to it.

The 97-2 vote in the Senate comes as Trump heads to Brussels. He will also travel to the United Kingdom and meet one-on-one with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki during his trip.

GOP Sens. Rand Paul (Ky.) and Mike Lee (Utah) voted against the measure.
My emphasis.

What a disappointment the Senate is. We have real issues they need to address about immigration and healthcare and instead they waste time with this grand standing symbolic bullshit.

It's not symbolic BS. It is political coverage.

At least symbolic BS can be useful to the country not just 98 members of the Senate.

They understand world war 1, world war 2, and the cold war.

I don't think conservatives know who our friends are, or who our enemies are.

Disagreed. Trump and the GOP know EXACTLY who their friend is: Vladimir Putin.

Seems he went after Russia (Putin) this morning saying that Germany was very unwise to buy energy from Russia.

No, they know who are allies are. They also know they’re up for election.

This con man is a disgrace. He ceded the Pacific Rim to China by pulling out of TPP even though China has a heavy presence in South and Central America. Now he undermines NATO and has the ignorance to tell a country that was split in half by the USSR with a wall as seperation that they are “captive” to that very country. He is ignorant and vile. He must be removed from office.
Thanks from tristanrobin and leekohler2
