Congressman Sires' Statement on President Trump's Behavior at the NATO Summit

Jul 12, 2018
Press Release

(Washington, D.C.) –Congressman Sires released the following statement supporting the NATO alliance: 

“Our allies in NATO deserve not only our support but our respect.  The alliance benefits the United States just as it does the other member nations and is a key tool to ensure collective defense.  President Trump might think that the NATO alliance needs reworking but that is no excuse for the way he has treated the allies who came to America’s aid in the dark days following 9/11 and countless other times.  I am extremely disappointed that President Trump has once again sought to divide us from our allies, weaken the transatlantic alliances, and embolden Putin who is no friend of the United States.”
