Donald Trump is considering making a deal with Putin that would prevent NATO from expanding eastward, particularly into Ukraine and Georgia, and force Ukraine to cede territory to Russia, according to two Trump-aligned national security experts who spoke to Politico.

“Trump would be unlikely to quit NATO outright, according to interviews with former Trump national security officials and defense experts who are likely to serve in a second Trump term. But even if he doesn’t formally leave the organization, that doesn’t mean NATO would survive a second Trump term intact.”
