Giuliani: Trump Has Made ‘No Decision’ on Pulling Back NATO from Near the Russian Border

‘I think President Trump would want to increase the impact of NATO, but make sure that these countries are participating’

RUSH TRANSCRIPT: 
TAPPER: "Spokesman for Putin said that one of the first things that trump can do as president is to convince NATO to pull back troops from near the Russian border, do you have any idea if any decision has been made along those line kps."
GIULIANI: "No. No decision like that has been made. Thought about, in fact, during the campaign, Donald Trump talked about forward positioning of some troops in NATO as kind of a bargaining chip with some of the NATO countries that are not putting in their fair share, their 2%."
TAPPER: "Okay."
GIULIANI: "And I think you’re going see something something more like that. I think a President Trump would want to increase the impact of NATO, but make sure that these countries are participating. You know, when we were fighting in Iraq and we had some of these countries participating, their armies weren’t fighting. They were watching us, the uk, and Canada fight, and they were just observing. Well it can’t work that way. You’ve got to be full participants and we have to be full participants."
