Trump tells German paper: NATO is ‘obsolete’ | TheHill

President-elect Donald Trump called NATO obsolete, according to a  Bloomberg Politics report about an interview the president-elect gave to Germany’s Bild newspaper.

“It’s obsolete, first because it was designed many, many years ago,” Trump was quoted as saying about NATO. “Secondly, countries aren’t paying what they should” and NATO “didn’t deal with terrorism.”

He also said BMW would face a 35 percent import duty on foreign-built BMWs sold in the U.S. Trump told Bild that the company should halt plans to open a new plant in Mexico and instead create a U.S. factory.
