Successive American presidents have complained that the current arrangement isn’t fair, and NATO members have long pledged to spend more on their defense. They will do so again today, but they never seriously deliver. It’s time to restructure NATO fundamentally. America should remain a partner, but we should move most of our forces home, or to the Pacific to deter China. Europe should take primary responsibility for its own defense.

Does Trump have a point? What purpose does a 1949 defense treaty serve today? Is it still worth theprice we pay to keep it going? To answer these questions, I reached out to Ivo Daalder, a former US ambassador to NATO from 2009 to 2013 and now the president of the Chicago Council on Global Affairs. We talked about NATO’s role today, why the typical US taxpayer ought to care about the alliance, and what the world might look like without it.

Trump is turning American diplomacy upside down, repudiating our nation’s leadership in the world. He is snubbing one of history’s most successful alliances for freedom and peace, NATO, and playing into the hands of an expansionist Russia. It is hard to imagine Putin could have written a better script for Trump, from a Russian strongman’s point of view, than the words that came out of our president’s mouth on Wednesday.
