NATO members are shocked by Trump’s unfounded criticisms, numbers, and railing. "He is telling falsehoods!" "Making total distortions of nations and history!" "This is outlandish!"
Psst, don’t tell anyone: Putin hates NATO, and Trump’s Putin’s boy and Trump is reciting the Putin script.
Yeah, well, he’s doing exactly what he did during the presidential election: lies, distortions, the “lots of people agree” or the, “everybody is telling me” kind of lingo to support all of his fabrications, but NATO members find his words shocking and distorted.
