Trump tells The New York Times he would decide whether to protect the Baltic republics against Russian aggression based on whether those countries "have fulfilled their obligations to us."
In 2014, the 28-member alliance created a rapid-reaction force to protect the most vulnerable NATO members against a confrontation with Russia.
Trump also says in the Times interview that he would not criticize Turkey for cracking down on political opponents and restricting civil liberties.
Trump says the U.S. has no "right to lecture" other countries when "people are shooting policemen in cold blood."
