SETH BARRETT TILLMAN OFFERS GENTLE CORRECTION TO FELLOW LAWPROFS on Trump and the state of Europe. “Perhaps, one reason that some of our allies’ governments are ‘alienated’ is that Trump appeared quite serious in telling our allies to meet their 2%-of-GDP defense commitment—a NATO policy. It is a policy which is only being met by about 5 of NATO’s 28 members. See http://time.com/4680885/nato-defense-spending-budget-trump/. It might surprise some on this listserv that some Americans are alienated by our forever footing the defense bill (including the all too real human costs) on behalf of the free riders of Europe.”
