Trump heads to Europe, says Putin 'easiest' of his meetings

Trump heads to Europe, says Putin 'easiest' of his meetings

Members signed on to the two percent benchmark in 2014 at the NATO Summit in Wales in response to Russia's annexation of Crimea.

President Trump will then travel to Helsinki, Finland, to take part in a bilateral meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump left that meeting without signing the joint statement from the seven nations and antagonizing important USA allies, including Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau. Trump made waves in the British press by calling Boris Johnson, who yesterday quit Prime Minister Theresa May's government, "a friend" - while refusing to back her government.

Tusk reminded Trump that the first time NATO's mutual defense clause to assist other members under attack came after the terror attacks on 9/11 and that 870 European troops have fought and died in Afghanistan.

Khan said: "Are you honestly saying the right to protest.is limited by the ridicule it may cause someone?" Hill sought to place Trump's policy decisions into a coherent whole, they said. 'I'm confident the UK-US alliance will play a leading role in advancing our shared values of democracy and freedom, ' he said.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation chief Jens Stoltenberg said Tuesday that seven out of 27 European members were on course to spend two percent of GDP on defense in 2018: Britain, Greece, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Lithuania and Romania.

But instead of trying to engage with what Trump actually said during the Fox News interview, Gardner pretended Trump actually meant the opposite of what he said.

Pres. Trump: 'Very Close' To Making Final Supreme Court Pick
Last week I was told Trump had essentially narrowed the list down to two: Kavanaugh and 6th Circuit Judge Raymond Kethledge . The ads will simply tell viewers who the nominee is and explain why they are qualified to sit on the Supreme Court.

Responding to Mr Trump's comments, Mrs May's official spokesman said: "This is something that the President has said on other occasions".

Also, the USA president tweeted that "NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS".

New figures published on Tuesday showed that only seven European NATO countries - Britain, Greece, Latvia, Estonia, Poland, Lithuania and Romania - would reach the 2.0-percent spending target in 2018. The NATO chief said that the Europeans and Canada are projected to spend around US$266 billion more on defence by 2024.

Defense spending among the 29 nations belonging to the transatlantic military alliance increased to an estimated 2.42% of gross domestic product (GDP), up from 2.4% in 2016, the organization said earlier this year. The EU did strike back with retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods.

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov recently said that Vladimir Putin is prepared to repeat that Russian Federation had no role in any "interference".

Trump also noted that 2% of GDP should be the "bare minimum for confronting today's very real and very vicious threats".

At one point, Trump was asked if Putin should be considered a friend or foe. "And dear Europe, spend more on your defense because everyone expects an ally that is well prepared and equipped", he added, noting: "Money is important, but genuine solidarity should be more important".
