Trump rails against Germany, demands allies double NATO spending

"They agreed to pay more and they agreed to pay it more quickly", he said, though he did not name countries or give a timeline or figure.

Other Democrats have said Mr. Trump should use his Monday meeting as a chance to confront Mr. Putin.

During Trump's meeting with Putin, McCain said, the president "must reverse his disturbing tendency to show America's adversaries the deference & esteem that should be reserved for our allies". All I can say is: "Did you?" "It's very detailed", Macron said, according to the AP. "So he knows what he's signed up to", Macron said. "Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025". "Germany just started paying Russian Federation, the country they want protection from, Billions of Dollars for their Energy needs coming out of a new pipeline from Russian Federation". People are paying money that they never paid before. "He obviously likes me and says very good things about me", he added.

Under fire for his warm embrace of Russia's Vladimir Putin, Trump on Wednesday also turned a harsh spotlight on Germany's own ties to Russian Federation, alleging that a natural gas pipeline venture with Moscow has left Angela Merkel's government "totally controlled" and "captive" to Russian Federation.

In the Sun story, Trump also criticized London Mayor Sadiq Khan, the city's first Muslim mayor who's been highly critical of Trump's immigration policies. "I made clear that we are on this path", Merkel said. Lithuania's foreign minister tweeted, "We are resolute, committed to mutual defence, [and] fair burden sharing". "It's been wonderful to see the level of spirit in that room".

Trump has been getting around by helicopter to avoid the protests in central London.

Mueller is investigating whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation and whether the president has unlawfully sought to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump's late arrival is not a first for him.

The US President then was scheduled to meet with allies participating in the NATO-led "Resolute Support" mission to train and advise Afghan security forces.

WWE Purposely Avoided Mentioning Brock Lesnar On Monday’s Raw
Well, the UFC, WWE or someone has to figure out what's going on in Lesnar's mouth before any talks of a title fight move forward. What resulted was Lesnar hurling insults and UFC setting up their future championship match in a very pro wrestling-esque way.

Trump last week told senior aides he was going to make threats about defense spending and that he was determined to flip the table over before he left, a senior administration official said ahead of Thursday's drama, speaking on condition of anonymity to discuss sensitive summit planning.

The president has been highly critical of the alliance, complaining the U.S. pays more than others. "Much stronger than it was two days ago", Trump said in an unscheduled statement.

The retired admiral said that he thinks Trump's stated commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the signing of the declaration shows the alliance is holding together - for now.

"Some are at 2 per cent, others have agreed definitely to go to 2 per cent, and some are going back to get the approval, and which they will get to go to 2 per cent", he said. It was also reported that Trump asked Macron privately to leave the World Trade Organization.

Still, Trump will travel through London, participating in a meet-and-greet with diplomatic personnel at the U.S. embassy and staying overnight at the United States ambassador's residence in the city.

Trump finally managed to hold Melania's hand.

President Donald Trump is dishing up a fresh dose of chaos on his European tour, blasting British Prime Minister Theresa May in a published interview.

Trump emerged declaring continued commitment to a Western alliance built on United States military might that has stood up to Moscow since World War II.

"The concern is that this is not just noise to disregard, because perception is reality and this president may be with us for another six years", the senior source said. "This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership".
