Chris Van Hollen (D-MD), reported Politico. “Anybody who cares about American leadership, anyone who cares about protecting democracy, anybody who wants to take on authoritarians around the world should be scared to death by the fact that Donald Trump is telling us that if he was reelected President, he would throw our NATO allies to [Vladimir] Putin.”
