Zelenskyy Responds to Key US Senate Vote as Russia Allegedly Prepares for NATO Conflict in 10 Years

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz has slammed U.S. President Donald Trump’s accusations against NATO, claiming that they have led to concerns about the strength of the alliance. Scholz spoke out against what he called the “relativisation” of NATO’s mutual defense clause, calling it dangerous and only serving Russia’s interests.

In a meeting with Polish Prime Minister Donald Tusk, Scholz emphasized the importance of strengthening Europe’s security and joining as allies against Russian aggression. This echoes a similar statement made by Tusk regarding the need for a partnership between the European Union, NATO, and the United States in light of growing security concerns.

Trump’s remarks at a campaign rally implied that the U.S. might not defend NATO allies against a potential Russian invasion if they were not spending enough on defense. However, Germany has been working to reach its target of dedicating 2% of its national income to defense after drawing criticism from Trump while he was in power. In response to the war in Ukraine, Berlin has stepped up its defense spending and is expected to reach this benchmark this year.
