    Trump says he’d ‘encourage’ Russia to attack NATO allies who don’t pay their bills – By The Associated Press (NPR) / Feb 11, 2024

    NEW YORK — Republican front-runner Donald Trump said Saturday that, as president, he warned NATO allies that he “would encourage” Russia “to do whatever the hell they want” to countries that are “delinquent” as he ramped up his attacks on foreign aid and longstanding international alliances.

    Speaking at a rally in Conway, South Carolina, Trump recounted a story he has told before about an unidentified NATO member who confronted him over his threat not to defend members who fail to meet the trans-Atlantic alliance’s defense spending targets.

    But this time, Trump went further, saying had told the member that he would, in fact, “encourage” Russia to do as it wishes in that case.
