"And you tell me that is appropriate, because I think it's not and I think it's a very bad thing for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and I don't think it should have happened".

But Trump's harsh criticism of Germany echoes statements from USA officials from past administrations, including Kerry himself, according to recently resurfaced videos, the Washington Free Beacon reported.

Russian opposition politician Konstantin Borovoi says the European Union states could block the construction of the Nord Stream 2 gas pipeline if they accept Washington's radical stance. And the former Chancellor of Germany is the head of the pipeline company that's supplying the gas.

House Panels Give Ex-FBI Lawyer Two Last Chances to Testify
Jeffress said that Page will testify later this month if she is given access to the Federal Bureau of Investigation files. It's unclear if GOP lawmakers will actually hold a contempt vote if Page continues to defy the subpoena.

According to the politician, today the "Nord stream-2" is for Germany to tackle the same duties that the USA wants to put in order to equalize competition with European and American goods to the European and American market. "Explain that. And it can't be explained - you know that", Trump said.

Russian President Vladimir Putin's spokesman, Dmitry Peskov, countered Thursday, saying "natural gas pipelines lead not to a dependence of one country from another, but to mutual interdependence". It's going nearly stop exporting gas 10 years from now.

According to the UralSib expert, the situation that Trump described at the meeting with Stoltenberg on July 11, where Russian Federation contributes 60 to 70% of Germany's presumably gas imports, is only hypothetical.

The president also renewed his war of words with Sadiq Khan, saying the London mayor has "done a very bad job on terrorism".

"We consider that it's a question of economic competition and that ... the buyers must take their own decision", he said.

"It will have to be somehow replaced with something, and there is an opening for LNG (liquified natural gas), obviously, if Nord Stream-2 gets cancelled...this opening will be larger".

Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said Trump's statement marked an escalation of a United States campaign to talk down Russian gas supplies to Europe in an attempt to push the USA energy sector instead. He said he also mentioned tripartite talks [on gas - EU-RF-Ukraine], which they will hold.
