Trump says North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members have agreed to spending increases

Trump says North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members have agreed to spending increases

From left: NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg, Prime Minister of the United Kingdom Theresa May, and U.S. President Donald Trump arrive for a working dinner at The Parc du Cinquantenaire-Jubelpark Park in Brussels on July 11, during the NATO summit.

Addressing a question about his consistency - and whether he might have less glowing comments about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on his Twitter account, Trump said, "No, that's other people that do that, I don't".

Asked about pressures on countries with weaker finances, he said, "We have many wealthy countries with us today but we have some that aren't so wealthy and they did ask me if they could buy the military equipment, and could I help them out, and we will help them out a little bit", he told a news conference.

It remains to be seen whether Trump really meant it about consistency, when it comes to soccer, however.

Trump declared that he had ended the nuclear threat from North Korea, but one senior USA official, speaking on the condition of anonymity, said: "Who's to say he won't come out of Helsinki saying he and Putin agreed that Russian Federation no longer poses a threat to the rest of Europe?"

And while the president has said he ultimately wants to up commitments doubled to 4 percent, for now he said that countries have agreed to move at a "faster clip" to meet the 2 percent threshold.

Massive fuel tank explosion rocks Cairo airport
Cairo International was the scene of a terrorist attack in 2015 when a passenger smuggled a bomb on to Metrojet Flight 9268 . A number of local tweets poured in with users claiming to have heard a loud explosion followed by the sounds of ambulances.

"I made clear that we know that we have to do more and that we have been doing so for quite a while", said German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

"It is up to President Trump to hold Putin accountable for his actions during the meeting in Helsinki", McCain said in a statement. We have realized this since the attack on Ukraine and the annexation of Crimea.

Trump was whisked away to an oasis of warm greetings at a black-tie reception at Blenheim, birthplace of Winston Churchill, the larger-than-life British leader cited by the president as a model of leadership.

At the same breakfast (and on several other occasions later in the day), Trump blasted German Chancellor Angela Merkel for an energy deal her country has with Russian Federation, saying they are "totally controlled by Russian Federation", and a "captive" of the country.

Trump also reiterated his criticisms of Germany - which he said earlier this week was "totally controlled by Russia" because of a deal for a natural gas pipeline. According to CNN, he said: "I told people that I would be very unhappy if they didn't up their commitments very substantially".

Putin has denied meddling in the election when Trump raised it before.

USA threatens to impose fresh tariffs on China
On Wednesday, the Trump administration said ZTE took another step toward ending a us ban after ZTE signed an escrow agreement. The International Monetary Fund has warned that a full-blown trade war could undermine the broadest global upswing in years.

"She wanted to go a different route".

"I know they're having a lot of problems and their economy is collapsing".

During the summit, Mr Trump also attracted criticism from both Germany and Russian Federation over his comments on the two countries' relations. "Because I said it was unfair".

Following an emergency session at the alliance headquarters in Brussels, the U.S. president said the other members have agreed an unprecedented increase in defence spending. "It confirms the goal of 2 percent by 2024".

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.

One idea Trump floated last week was the threat of a drawdown of the 35,000 USA troops in Germany.
