the false narrative that Trump is feeding you to later justify leaving Nato
How is the narrative false? The vast majority of NATO nations do, indeed, underfund their military's and do not spend the agreed upon 2% of their GDP on defense. Do you agree that this weakens NATO? And, that the USA is left to fill that void to maintain the credibility of NATO defense power? I've seen reports where the German military is only 30-40% operationally ready at any time. That the French military would find it dificult to maintain a brigade over even a short period of time.
American defense spending is almost exclusively centered around Asia and the Middle East,
You may be right about that, I'm not sure; but, it isn't necessarily an indicator that America is looking to fold up NATO. It is an indicator of what America sees as the biggest threat to not only America, but the West : China. But having said that, there is still the reality that America is concerned with Russia, i.e. new US garrisons in Ploland.
Think about this and tell me what you think: if Trump wanted to leave NATO, why would he constantly be badgering NATO nations to increase defense spending? To me, the only reason he'd be doing that is so Europe would be strong enough to defend itself. But, if that is the reason, why build new garrisons. Also consider how hard Trump has been lobbying NATO to develop a strategy to deal with China and Iran?
it is not Trump has done anything to decrease American defense spending, on the contrary actually.
In fact he has increased significantly, as he should, IMO. Deterrence is a major part of Trump 's foreign policy. As a historian, would you say that historically, deterrence has been one of, if not the best, purveyor of peace?
