House Rebukes Trump With Unanimous Pro-NATO Vote
The Washington Examiner reports:
The House on Wednesday unanimously approved a resolution supporting NATO just hours after President Trump rebuked intergovernmental military alliance.
The House approved the nonbinding measure by voice vote. The Senate passed a similar resolution on Tuesday by a vote of 97-2. Republican Sens. Mike Lee, of Utah, and Rand Paul, of Kentucky, voted against the Senate measure.
Hours before the House vote, Trump, who is attending at NATO summit in Brussels, criticized the alliance by attacking Germany’s reliance on Russian gas. Trump also called for NATO nations to pay more to support the alliance.
House unanimously passes resolution “expressing support for the countries of Eastern Europe and NATO Alliance” by voice vote on Day 1 of NATO summit in Brussels.
