Karin von Hippel, the director general of the Royal United Services Institute (RUSI) said until there are more details, it looks like Trump is speaking to his base and that in any case it was unlikely that the Pentagon would be fully on board with such a plan.

"The U.S is becoming more and more unreliable as a partner and so a lot of these countries are trying to develop their own coping mechanisms to deal with Trump."
