Trump’s statements are highly hazardous and benefit Russia, says Olaf Scholz and Donald Tusk

As he announced his candidacy for president once again, Donald Trump sparked controversy among his Western allies with comments suggesting that the US might not defend NATO allies who do not meet a certain spending threshold for defense against a possible Russian attack. German Foreign Minister Scholz, concerned about the implications of such an undermining of NATO’s defense agreement, emphasized the importance of protecting Poland and expressed confidence in the strength of European and US collaboration to maintain security.

During their meeting in Berlin, Scholz and Tusk reiterated their commitment to maintaining strong ties between Germany and Poland, especially in light of threats from Russian imperialism. They stressed the need for cooperation and solidarity in the face of these challenges and highlighted the importance of coordinating defense efforts to fortify against potential aggressors.

Despite recent tensions between Germany and Poland due to diplomatic fallout from the Law and Justice party’s anti-German stance, Scholz reiterated that Germany accepts full responsibility for its actions during World War II and rejects calls for compensation. Meanwhile, Tusk recognized the importance of European-US collaboration for security, expressing confidence in the economic and technological strength of both regions to maintain peace.
