The Pentagon promises to adhere to its obligations to NATO allies, despite the preferences of the future President in foreign policy. In Europe, demand from the winner of the election as soon as possible to determine the priorities, and in Russia already see similarities between trump and Putin. In the United States as the country selection is not quite all, the protests did not cease this night.
