Donald Trump has claimed he would encourage Russia to attack NATO members who don't pay their share of the alliance's budget. 'The president of a big country stood up and said "if we don't pay, and we're attacked by Russia, will you protect us?" They said, "well, if we don't pay are you still going to protect us?" I said, "if you don't pay, we're not going to protect you". Putin denied he had any interest in attacking NATO countries, like Poland and the Baltic states, in his controversial interview with Tucker Carlson.
