Trump bashes North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members: Who pays what?

Trump's strained visit with NATO, meeting with Putin Trump Sets Stage for NATO Showdown as He Ties Defense to Trade - Article

The president also took aim at the European Union, saying the U.S.is "being taken advantage of" by the economic bloc.

After Putin told Trump that White House advisers were trying to interfere, Trump reportedly called those advisers "stupid people", and told Putin he "shouldn't listen to them".

She did not directly answer a question about Trump's friendship with Johnson, her former foreign secretary who quit on Monday in protest at her plan for Brexit. Unfortunately these traits will undoubtedly be on display when the United States president arrives at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels tomorrow. "Charge us big Tariffs (& Barriers)!" he wrote on Twitter.

The U.S. Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis website says that the European Union had a trade in goods surplus with the U.S.in 2017 of US$151.4 billion - not million.

On Nato, President Trump's main objection is that a number of member states have not increased their defence budgets to the target of 2% of economic output.

"It will become increasingly hard to justify to American citizens why some countries continue to fail to meet our shared collective security commitments", Trump said in a letter addressed to Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg seen by Bloomberg News.

In Brussels, Merkel will defend her decision to raise defense spending more slowly than Trump's goal and seek to maintain the 35,000 US troops deployed to Germany, which Trump has threatened to pull back.

In addition to stating that his meeting with Putin could be his "easiest" during his European trip, Trump also wouldn't say whether he considered the Russian leader a friend or foe.

"While these countries have been increasing their contributions since I took office, they must do much more", he wrote, adding that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation benefits "Europe far more than it does the U.S.". Trump has requested closed-door meetings to take place without aides or the media involved. And It is not to sugarcoat Trump's gross failure to understand that USA power and influence in the world, essential underpinnings of his desire to put "American first", demand that the United States also work effectively with other countries, especially its allies and partners around the world.

Woody Johnson, Trump's ambassador to the United Kingdom, said the president is aware of the planned protests but insisted that Trump "appreciates free speech" in both countries. "But we will work it out, and all countries will be happy".

So everyone knows what to expect come Wednesday and Thursday, when Trump and his NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison (who thinks the president is hitting it out of the park, of course) will join our global security allies. I get along with her very well, I have a very good relationship. That is why we have agreed today to strengthen EU-NATO ties in crucially important areas.

Russia has been accused of meddling in the 2016 US presidential elections, and several high-level investigations are examining the possibility of collusion between Trump's campaign and Russian officials.
