Make peace great again: Brussels protests against Trump's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation visit

Make peace great again: Brussels protests against Trump's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation visit

Sources told the newspaper Kommersantthat the Kremlin has submitted a two-page document to the White House with a first draft of a potential statement Moscow hopes Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will make at the conclusion of their Helsinki summit next week. Putin will claim that he and Trump have had enough of these institutions, which seek to block Russian Federation and exploit USA generosity. Problems with computers used in the building management system were the latest setback... He will admire Trump's candor and readiness to defy norms, especially by challenging allies who are "taking advantage" of the United States.

Instead, we can look forward to Trump continuing his uninformed commentary about nations failing to "pay their dues"-as if North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was one of his country clubs-and musing about whether the USA should even stay in the alliance".

Much, of course, depends on the president's mood, which is rarely good during global conferences where he bristles at what he considers the unfair economic and security alliances the United States constructed in the wake of WWII and the Cold War. "This deal is going to be done through the European Union and done in Brussels". "This is not fair, nor is it acceptable", the president posted on Twitter Monday.

Representatives of 17 civil society organizations were marching with the slogan "Make peace great again", mimicking Trump's campaign slogan in the 2016 USA presidential election of "Making America great again".

Frenchman Esteban Ocon finished seventh for Force India, who are now level on points with McLaren and ahead on podiums. Hamilton was sent spinning and reported that his auto was broken but has so far continued in the race.

Although administration officials point to the long-standing alliance between the United States and the United Kingdom, Trump's itinerary will largely keep him out of central London, where significant protests are expected. "But he seems to have a thing for authoritarian rulers", said Goldgeier, who expects Trump to come out of his meeting with Putin touting a great relationship (as he did with Kim - although the North Korean leader's weekend meeting with Secretary of Sate Mike Pompeo yielded disastrous optics).

U.S. Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchinson says Russian Federation aims to destabilize NATO with a wide array of "malign activities".

"It really is just Trump". When I served as Nato's supreme allied commander from 2009-2013, we had controversy and disagreements aplenty over Afghanistan and Libya, for example, and endless arguments over equitable burden-sharing between the U.S. and the other allies.

"Other countries are going to have to look out for themselves..." "While these countries have been increasing their contributions since I took office, they must do much more".
