Trump Tweets NATO ‘Strong & Rich’ Hours Before Putin Meeting

Путин Россия расценит вступление Украины или Грузии в НАТО как прямую угрозу Canada, U.S. express concern at NATO over Russian pipeline into Germany

They might not have agreed with the US president calling Germany a "captive" of Russian Federation, but some Republican lawmakers on Wednesday said they believe Donald Trump is right to shame one of America's most important allies into spending more on defense. Merkel, for her part, stressed that Germany is NATO's second-biggest contributor when it comes to troops.

"I think it's a very effective way to deal", Trump said when asked by CNN about his insulting comments aimed at Germany.

The number that the president mentioned - 2 percent of countries' GDP - was in fact a main product of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meetings four years ago, when member nations pledged to move toward that threshold by 2024, a deadline that seemingly still stands after this week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation sessions.

"President Trump often seems to be in search of short-term political benefit at the expense of United States allies, the worldwide community", journalists Saska Saarikoski and Laura Saarikoski wrote on Sunday ahead of the Trump-Putin meeting, scheduled for July 16. But the USA president is expected to face mass protests during his trip's next leg in London - complete with a giant "Trump baby" balloon - that tens of thousands of people have said they plan to attend.

The journalists, who have authored several books on Trump, are alarmed by the prospect of the U.S. president making concessions to the "skilled negotiator" Putin who will sit down at the table "with a whole bunch of aces up his sleeve." .

There will be no second #Brexit referendum, says May's spokesman
Around 40 Tory MPs have reportedly already submitted a letter to the party leadership calling for a vote of no confidence. Many are in mutinous mood, and eight MPs have given up government and party posts in just over a week over Brexit.


Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said Trump's remarks showed the U.S. was eyeing to scuttle Russia's gas supplies to Europe to push its own energy sector, the report said.

"Presidents have been trying unsuccessfully for years to get Germany and other rich NATO Nations to pay more toward their protection from Russian Federation".

"What is hard to understand is the fact that President Trump has threatened and intimidated friendly countries while speaking warmly of autocratic leaders, and even of a tyrant like North Korea's Kim Jong-un", the open letter reads.

Unlike his predecessors, Trump will hold several of his key meetings outside of London, participating in a formal arrival ceremony and attending a dinner with UK Prime Minister Theresa May outside of London, in Oxfordshire. He and first lady Melania Trump will also have tea with Queen Elizabeth II.

This is a totally reasonably but completely hopeless stance when dealing with Trump.
