Mr Trump said he "can't say right now" if Mr Putin is a friend or foe, but called him a "competitor".

Similarly, earlier on Tuesday the president tweeted, "Getting ready to leave for Europe".

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 attend a closed-door summit with Vladimir Putin on Monday and has said no aides from the United States would be present for much of the talk.

Donald Trump has risked a diplomatic spat by refusing to back embattled British Prime Minister Theresa May.

"Dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don't have that many", Tusk said, before reminding Trump that European troops had fought alongside Americans in Afghanistan following the September 11, 2001 attacks on the United States.

Kawhi Leonard Rumors: Spurs Star Will Only Join 1 Eastern Conference Team
Leonard played in only nine games in 2017-18, scoring 16.2 points a night, well below his average of 25.5 in 2016-17. But it's taking a lot longer to figure out which team Kawhi Leonard will end up playing for next season.

She did not directly answer a question about Trump's friendship with Johnson, her former foreign secretary who quit on Monday in protest at her plan for Brexit. "I hope you have no doubt this is an investment in our security, which can not be said with confidence about Russian & Chinese spending".

"Those are stupid people", Trump said, according to the report; "you shouldn't listen to them".

Trump was asked about the UK and replied: "The UK, that's a situation that's been going on for a long time".

NATO's European allies have spent more on defense for a second consecutive year in 2017 but the majority of them still failed to meet the target of spending 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense.

He said this summit could be his "easiest" meeting.

"I'm looking forward to seeing President Trump".

Modric reveals Croatia biggest concern ahead of England clash
England's 11 goals so far are equal to the country's record of most goals at a single World Cup set back in 1966, when they won the title.

The NATO alliance has been critical to the USA since its formation in 1949 when it was created in response to the Soviet Union.

The meeting will be closely watched to see whether Trump will rebuke or embrace Putin, who has repeatedly denied the allegations of election meddling, in spite of evidence to the contrary.

The European Union is the top export market for the United States at $501 billion (£377.5 billion) in goods and services in 2016, the latest available figures provided by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative.

Many US presidents have urged European governments to spend more on their militaries.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries have set a goal of spending 2 percent of their GDP on the military, but only a handful of countries have actually met that target.

In this context, Tusk and others seem concerned Putin will take advantage of the fact that Trump is not standing by key U.S. allies. In March 2016 he said it was "obsolete and disproportionately too expensive" and on Monday, ahead of the summit, he suggested (on Twitter, of course), that "by some accounts, the U.S. is paying for 90% of Nato" and on Tuesday raged: "NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS. Charge us big Tariffs (& Barriers)!" "[Trump] is going to talk to Russian Federation, to Putin about his malign influence in so many areas", she said.
