Trump arrives in Brussels ahead of potentially contentious North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit

Flake's advice to Trump on Putin meeting

European Council President Donald Tusk addressed Trump's criticism, telling the U.S. President to "appreciate your allies, after all you don't have that many", at an E.U.

"Germany is paying just over 1% [of its GDP], whereas the United States, in actual numbers is paying 4.2% of a much larger GDP", he said.

On his way to Europe, Trump sent a number of uncompromising tweets, setting the tone for what could be the most factious on NATO's 69-year history.

"They have to step it up immediately".

"We are stronger together", Stoltenberg insisted, but acknowledged that there can be differences among allies. The United States spends heavily to defend Germany from Russian Federation, he said, while Germany is paying "billions and billions of dollars a year to Russian Federation".

But Trump hit back: "But Germany, as far as I'm concerned, is captive to Russian Federation because it's getting so much of its energy from Russian Federation".

Queen pays tribute to mark 100 years of Britain's Royal Air Force
In the months between Harry and Meghan's official engagement announcement and the royal wedding itself, it was her go-to style. A total of 17 royals flanked the Queen on the Buckingham Palace balcony for the RAF celebrations .

The president touted that the USA lost $151 billion a year ago on trade and slapped tariffs on other countries in an effort towards free and fair trade. He expects seven more to reach the target by 2024. The fullest possible involvement in our activities of EU Member States that are not North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members will be encouraged and facilitated in an all-inclusive, non-discriminatory manner, without any artificial obstacles. That includes running numerous military bases, missile defense systems, training operations, and more.

Though the US intelligence community and a bipartisan group of senators on the Senate Intelligence Committee both concluded Russian Federation waged a disinformation on Trump's behalf, Trump has indicated he accepts Putin's denials at face value.

Germany now spends 1.24% of its GDP on defense, and has committed to hitting 2% by 2024, something that Trump, and other U.S. leaders before him, have tried to hasten. Crimea belongs to Ukraine.

This summit is shaping up as the most divisive in Nato's 69-year-old history. "I have great confidence they'll be spending more".

Tusk also urged European NATO members to spend more on defense, but noted: "Money is important but generating solidarity is more important".

The NATO chief was frank about the impact of Trump's criticism on the organisation.

4 more boys brought out of flooded Thai cave
The outlet reported that eight boys remain inside the cave. "From what I've seen in the clip, they did look skinny", he said. Relatives said the boys had been inside the labyrinthine complex during the dry season.

When asked if Putin was a friend or foe, Trump replied, "I really can't say right now - as far as I'm concerned, a competitor". "Who would think?" he told reporters. While last June, NATO expected a 4.3 percent spending growth in 2017, the figure was revised in March to nearly 4.9 percent and further to over 5.2 percent in July.

Trump has preferred to take aim at allies.

Trump has, meanwhile, delivered on USA commitments to Europe. It is expected to become operational by the end of 2019.

On another front, Trump has connected the defense issue with trade, criticizing Europe for a $150 billion trade surplus (though it can also be calculated as $100 billion) and trade barriers.

But Trump wasn't buying it. The fact that the United States maintains about 70,000 troops in Europe gives him additional leverage. "America does not have, and will not have a better ally than Europe".

President Donald Trump will likely declare U.S. support forNATO's mutual defense doctrine while pressing for increased spending commitments from NATOallies at a high-stakes summit in Brussels, a senior administration official said on Tuesday.
