Hayden: ‘I’m Very Concerned’ About Trump Destabilizing NATO and the EU

‘I’m very concerned if our European friends are as concerned as you just suggested’

EXCERPT:

TAPPER: "How concerned are you about the role President Trump may play in potentially destabilizing the E.U. and NATO?"
HAYDEN: "Well, Jake, I’m very concerned if our European friends are as concerned as you just suggested. Look, it’s hard to figure right now whether the statements coming from the president are simply a negotiating position to get the Europeans to bear more of the burden, which I think all of us in the security community believe would be a very good thing, or is it the first step in disestablishing the national security structures that have kept the world a relatively safer place for the last 75 years. And it remains to be seen in which direction this is going to go."
