BREAKING: The Senate Has Just Overwhelmingly Folded To NATO!!

In the midst of President Trump’s visit with NATO, the Senate has reportedly voted in favor of a motion supporting NATO.

As reported by thehill.com
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.


Democratic Sen. Jack Reed (R.I.) proposed the measure, calling the U.S. support for NATO "ironclad."

Trump has long been critical of NATO members for failing to meet their defense spending commitments, and has ramped up the criticism in the days ahead of the summit.


So as Trump is overseas attempting to get NATO to be fair to the United States, Congress is busy kissing their behinds.

Nothing wrong with supporting the IDEA of NATO, but supporting them financially to the point of 4 times the contribution on a per person basis is NOT GOOD. They need to pull their weight, and pay their way.

Our Senate should be ashamed. They should understand why Trump is president. They are the ones that need to replaced because they continue to not stand for America. Shame on them....
