NATO allies are openly rooting for a Joe Biden victory in next month’s U.S. presidential election, and are vowing a summit in the early spring of 2021 should he win.
“Most allies want a Biden victory next month, but they would obviously work with a reelected Trump administration,” a diplomat at NATO’s Brussels headquarters told Reuters.
President Trump has chastised NATO allies routinely over the last three years for not paying their pledged shares dues, a shortfall the U.S. often makes up for.
Mr. Trump has also called the alliance, which came into existence after WWII, obsolete on numerous occasions.
