President Trump again threatens to leave NATO. Some are shocked. I say: please do.

Senior administration officials told The New York Times that several times over the course of 2018, Mr. Trump privately said he wanted to withdraw from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Current and former officials who support the alliance said they feared Mr. Trump could return to his threat as allied military spending continued to lag behind the goals the president had set.

In the days around a tumultuous NATO summit meeting last summer, they said, Mr. Trump told his top national security officials that he did not see the point of the military alliance, which he presented as a drain on the United States.

Now, the president’s repeatedly stated desire to withdraw from NATO is raising new worries among national security officials amid growing concern about Mr. Trump’s efforts to keep his meetings with Mr. Putin secret from even his own aides, and an F.B.I. investigation into the administration’s Russia ties.

Please Exit NATO

In case you have not noticed, I do not give a damn about political parties or what they stand for.

Rather, I stand for policies.

About Policies

I agree with Trump we need to leave Syria and Afghanistan. And I agree that NATO is a useless drain on US finances.

I disagree with Trump on the wall because it attacks a symptom not the real issue.

Every time I disagree with Trump I get accused of being a "Hillary lover".

The fact is, I voted for Trump. And against Hillary, I would do so again. Hillary would certainly not threaten to exit NATO. Nor would she exit Syria or Afghanistan. I am very anti-war.

Trump makes me nauseous over Iran and many other things, but Hillary makes me nauseous over almost everything.

Politics

I am damn tired of partisan politics.

On the current course, we are headed for an extremely undesirable showdown between socialist nut cases and extreme right-wing warmongers. The nomination process is clearly geared towards extremism.

The vast majority of the US wanted neither Trump nor Hillary, but someone had to win.

The next election rates to be even worse.
