Trump - who advocates increasing U.S. liquified natural gas exports - said "Germany got rid of their coal plants, they got rid of their nuclear, they're getting so much of their oil and gas from Russian Federation".

Peskov said Moscow regarded U.S. objections to the new pipeline as "unfair competition" aimed at trying to force European countries to buy costlier United States liquefied natural gas. "And you tell me if that's appropriate, because I think it's not".

It is unusual for Trump to express concerns about Russian behaviour.

The US president also called on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member states to immediately do something about the matter.

But Trump's harsh criticism of Germany echoes statements from USA officials from past administrations, including Kerry himself, according to recently resurfaced videos, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

"I'm very happy today that we are united in freedom as the Federal Republic of Germany, and can thus say that we can determine our own policies and make our own decisions - and that's very good".

Donald Trump's great (and contentious) adventure
Just a few hours before he was due to leave for Britain, Mr Trump had more to say apparently - and he said it. Despite the tensions throughout the summit, Trump and other leaders held a cordial dinner Wednesday night.

This is not the first time Trump has bashed Germany over the Nord Stream 2 pipeline. "And we can not lose sight of that".

According to the committee, Trump's remarks were "an assault on business relations between German and European countries and Russian Federation", while assumptions that Nord Stream 2 would help Russian Federation control the European gas market were "factually wrong and politically absurd".

Some in Washington have called for Nord Stream 2 and its leaders, such as its chairman former German chancellor Gerhard Schroeder, to be added to US Treasury sanctions lists. "From our perspective, it looks like a fairly bad deal ..."

"The United States does not support pipelines such as Nord Stream 2 and a multi-line Turk Stream that will only increase reliance on a single source of supply", Perry told reporters. "I know will fundamentally destabilize Ukraine".

Trump said "Germany is totally controlled by Russian Federation", because of those ties. "Russian gas can and should be part of the European market, but that market needs to be open and competitive".

We agreed that this is of strategic importance for the energy security of Europe, but also for the continuation of reforms in Ukraine and for the economic development of the country that has experienced many trials in these last years, Sefcovic continued.
