Appleton, Wis. – Tom Nelson, candidate for the U.S. Senate issued the following statement in response to news reports that Sweden is expected to join NATO as early as this summer:
“I cannot emphasize the significance of the decision for neutral Sweden to break a 200-year foreign policy and align with NATO. Cleary, Russia’s threat is worse than that of the belligerent nations of World War I and II.
On the other hand, this will only strengthen the iron-clad resolve of Europe and free countries to stand up to Putin and Russia. My thanks and gratitude to Prime Minister Magdalena Andersson and continued prayers as she and her cabinet deliberate on this matter of global and historical significance.”
