Donald Trump once again expressed his explicit support for NATO’s duty of assistance. But the US presidency has immediately attached a requirement to the European Member States.

The United States is stuck to Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty, said Trump this afternoon in Warsaw. He added, “Words are one thing, but those are counting. And for his own defense, Europe – and you know that everyone knows that everyone needs to know – do more.”

Europe must prove “it believes in its future, in which it invests its money to protect the future,” the president declared. He also praised the Polish government for its decision to buy American Patriot missiles.


Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty states that NATO Member States have agreed that an armed attack against one or several of them is an attack against all Member States and that they mutually defend each other.

“Poland is an example”
Donald Trump praises Poland and the Polish government as an example of freedom. “I’m not here today just to visit an old ally, but to show him as an example for others seeking freedom,” the president spoke to a crowd at the Krasinski Square in Warsaw, where hundreds of people applauded him. Among the listeners was former Polish trade union leader and former president Lech Walesa.
