Biden warns Trump's re-election will bring the end of NATO

If President Trump is re-elected, the 29-member North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) will be a thing of the past, former Vice President Joe Biden said Tuesday night.
Russian President Vladimir Putin wants to break NATO up, and Trump is playing right into his hands by saying he believes Putin's claim that he did not interfere in the 2016 presidential election over the assessment of his own intelligence community, Biden said. The fact is, "we have an erratic, crazy president who knows not a damn thing about foreign policy," he continued, and "operates out of fear for his own re-election."
NATO's Article 5 states that an attack on one member is an attack on all of them, and Trump has questioned whether or not he'll "keep that sacred commitment," Biden said. "If he is re-elected, I promise you, there will be no NATO. Our security will be vastly underrated, we'll be in real trouble."
