The GOP died in 2009 when the Tea Party coup happened. The stench is just now reaching around the world from the bowels of Mr Trump.

During a 45-minute conversation, [Trump] explicitly raised new questions about his commitment to automatically defend NATO allies if they are attacked, saying he would first look at their contributions to the alliance.
As one might expect, this view contradicts reality … in the form of the acceptance speech of his Vice Presidential pick, Mike Pence:
We cannot have four more years of apologizing to our enemies and abandoning our friends. America needs to be strong for the world to be safe. On the world stage, Donald Trump will lead from strength. He will rebuild the arsenal of democracy, stand with our allies and hunt down and destroy our enemies of freedom.

Donald J. Trump, on the eve of accepting the Republican nomination for president, said Wednesday that if he were elected, he would not pressure Turkey or other authoritarian allies about conducting purges of their political adversaries or cracking down on civil liberties. The United States, he said, has to “fix our own mess” before trying to alter the behavior of other nations.”
