Donald Trump slams North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over military spending ahead of summit

NATO Braces For Trump, White House Says Business As Usual

The US president has been unleashing scathing attacks on America's traditional allies ahead of the meeting which will be followed by a one-on-one with Russian president Vladimir Putin. I think it's a sign of how confident the president is that he did nothing wrong.

Around 1,500 people went out on July 6 in Brussels to protest against the upcoming visit of U.S. President Donald Trump to a NATO Summit set to take place from July 11-12.

What makes it particularly hurtful is the evident personal affection and admiration Trump has for Putin. In the last few months, the Trump administration has taken repeated concrete steps to damage European and worldwide institutions and specific European governments. But if one listens just to her boss, it is not a stretch to wonder just how unified such an worldwide body can be if its most influential and wealthy member appears skeptical of its necessity and the manner in which it is funded.

Recall that in mid-June, the American edition Buzzfeed, citing diplomatic sources reported that in the course of G7 summit in Canada, trump said other world leaders that he believes the Russian Crimea, since the Peninsula's population speaks Russian.

A country's defense contribution shouldn't be measured only as a percentage of GDP, but also in terms of troops and hardware, she said in an interview with Bloomberg Television in Berlin. "They kill us on other things". "But right now, we have sanctions against Russian Federation due to their malign influence and the things they're doing that are very disruptive - trying to divide our alliance", Kay Bailey Hutchinson said.

"We have a 2.5 percent tariff on them". But plans for a full-fledged summit had been delayed amid the Federal Bureau of Investigation and congressional probes into whether Trump campaign aides coordinated with Russian Federation to help Trump win the election. He knows the facts and the details and he's discussed it.

It may be harder to predict what the American president - vs. his Russian counterpart - will say at the July 16 summit in Helsinki. In fact, they're howling already.

On other occasions, the two men discussed Syria, where Putin offered to help Trump achieve his agenda of pulling the USA out of the region, before advisers urged the President not to accept such an offer. Well done to our guys, they tried very hard.

Some might say that the great change in this team as opposed to earlier iterations of England is the togetherness, the sublimation to the collective rather than the drive for individual plaudits.

"It does concern me", the Arizona senator told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" Sunday.

"I don't think he has a choice". That's not a sustainable long-term foundation for any foreign policy. The statement would describe U.S.

"He's mainly anxious about our allies taking advantage of us".

"The new strategy may call for more European military efforts", the former adviser to Senate Armed Services Chairman John McCain and Pentagon leaders said.

The leaders will meet again on July 12 with their counterparts from Ukraine and Georgia, both of whom are on track for eventual North Atlantic Treaty Organisation membership, followed by a meeting of those alliance members who are part of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation mission in Afghanistan.

The president is not known for studying wonky strategy documents. "This is not fair, nor is it acceptable", he said.

Ultimately, Trump's the boss. Putin will certainly share Trump's disdain for the media and compare stories of "fake news" - of which the Mueller investigation and allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 campaign, the two leaders will surely agree, are ideal examples.
