    During a joint press conference with U.S. Secretary of State Anthony Blinken last week, Albanian Prime Minister Edi Rama said that NATO was strong under former President Donald Trump because he forced countries to contribute their fair share to the common defense. The declaration was seen as a slap in the face to the Biden Administration’s hapless foreign emissary.

    The question from a CBS reporter was aimed at eliciting a negative comment from the Albanian Prime Minister about the former U.S. President, but Rama declined to take the bait.

    Standing next to Blinken, Rama told the reporter, “I had the privilege to be prime minister for Albania in NATO when the former president was there.  And despite the rhetoric, despite the colorful way to confront adversaries, I don’t see that NATO was weakened.  On the contrary, what was decided before continued to be the case.  Every country continued to put more money and to put more effort in increasing the NATO budget.  So now, elections are elections, Trump is Trump.  American politics is American politics.  But I think United States is something more than that.  And what makes United States one of a kind in the – in our community of countries and of people all around the world is that United States cannot and will never, in my view, shy away from what are the principles and the values to be protected, whatever it takes…. So no, I don’t think that NATO will be weakened.  I don’t think the United States will shy away from their role and from their leadership.  I then that when elections will be over, American business is American business.”
