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.
Donham, then 21 and known as Carolyn Bryant, testified in 1955 as a prospective defence witness in the trial of Bryant and Milam. In 2007, at the age of 72, she granted an interview to Tyson, who was conducting research for The Blood of Emmett Till .
With considerable optimism, Treasury chief Philip Hammond said May was looking forward to her talks with the president. Trump said such a deal "will probably kil" any prospect of a US-UK free-trade agreement.
There have also been multiple cases of female reporters being groped and kissed by male fans during live broadcasts. Addiechi added that it was not a "proactive campaign" but said "we'll take action against things that are wrong".
The action, which does not include all workers at the production plant, will take place from Sunday, July 15, to Tuesday, July 17. It said the firm needed to guarantee the future of thousands of people, "rather than enriching only one".
The father-daughter duo, now in London with Sharif's ailing wife Kulsoom Nawaz, is expected to return to Pakistan on Friday. The NAB has already declared that Mr Sharif and Maryam will be arrested upon their arrival at any airport of the country.
Mr Trump also said he was "cracking down" on the European Union as "they have not treated the United States fairly on trading". Yet, now that protesters are planning to fly a great big diapered Baby Trump blimp, he doesn't feel welcome anymore.
In 2011, when the United States was still heavily involved in Afghanistan and Iraq, defence spending was at 4.78% of GDP. Probably not much, as the US contributes between one-fifth and one-quarter of NATO's annual budget of about $2 billion.

The Blues were unable to defend their title, finishing fifth last season and missing out on Champions League. He's set to be appointed imminently after Chelsea confirmed the departure of Antonio Conte .
The likes of Hazard, Neymar and Kylian Mbappe have all been suggested as possible replacements for the Portuguese superstar. These rumours certainly seem to be gathering momentum with each passing day. "I'm going to do something to see them more".
That prompted fears it might go beyond matching Washington's duty increases by disrupting operations for U.S. companies in China. But the ongoing trade tension between the United States and China has cast a shadow over the otherwise promising growth.
Klopp feels the positive arc of the defender's past season is just reward for a player he believes can still improve further, too. And the Liverpool defender has praised Croatian parents for "making good love" and giving the small country several sports stars.

Twitter purge: Don't be surprised if you lose followers
Twitter announced the purge was coming and told users that most would typically see a loss of usually fewer than four followers. Although losing 2 million followers is undoubtedly a significant drop, proportionally speaking it's not necessarily huge.
Trump releases 'very nice' letter from Kim Jong Un
