Ted Cruz Blasts Donald Trump's Proposal To Weaken NATO

In the wake of the Belgium attacks, Ted Cruz told reporters in Washington, "It is striking that the day after Donald Trump called for America weakening NATO, withdrawing from NATO, we see Brussels, where NATO is headquartered, the subject of a radical Islamic terrorist attack. Donald Trump is wrong that America should withdraw from the world and abandon our allies."

In an interview Monday with the Washington Post editorial board, Trump questioned the need for NATO. He said, "We certainly can’t afford to do this anymore. NATO is costing us a fortune, and yes, we’re protecting Europe with NATO, but we’re spending a lot of money."

During a CNN interview with Wolf Blitzer, Trump doubled down on his questioning of NATO support. On the other hand, Hillary Clinton shared her support for NATO after the suicide bombings in Brussels that left over 34 people dead and almost 200 injured. Also, in an interview on NBC's "Today" show, Clinton said Trump's plan to close U.S. borders is "unrealistic."

Cruz did tell reporters about Syrian refugees, "We need to immediately halt the president's ill-advised plan to bring in tens of thousands of Syrian Muslim refugees," adding that the Obama administration's "vetting programs are woefully insufficient."
