British public fear Donald Trump will weaken the Nato alliance, poll finds

Donald Trump’s election to the White House will weaken the Nato alliance and destroy America’s standing in the world, a majority of British voters believe.

A survey for The Independent by BMG Research found that 58 per cent of the public saw the US’s global reputation faltering under the billionaire businessman’s leadership.

Voters in the UK reacted to Mr Trump’s election upset with dismay, with 49 per cent saying they were shocked and 39 per cent anxious about the future following the election.

The findings come after Mr Trump spent part of his presidential campaign hinting that he would not stand by the Nato alliance agreement in all circumstances.

He suggested that under his leadership the US might not react to help countries in the alliance if they were attacked but had not spent the Nato target amount on defence – a category that includes nearly all the treaty organisation’s member states.

Former Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton branded Mr Trump a “puppet” of Russian president Vladimir Putin during the election campaign. Mr Trump rejected the claim. The Kremlin has said it had contacts with Mr Trump’s team during the course of the election.
