R.J. Matson  CQ Roll Call

"Yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening", Trump said at an impromptu press conference, adding, "Now we are very happy".

That has left national leaders - Canada's included - asking the same question they've been asking for nearly two years now: what can be done to mitigate Trump's tactics?

There were no immediate specifics on what Trump said he had achieved, and French President Emmanuel Macron quickly disputed Trump's claim that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies had agreed to boost defence spending beyond their existing goal of 2 per cent of gross domestic product.

When pressed to explain Trump's claims he credited the president with a "new sense of urgency" among allies to "redouble our efforts" to increase defence spending, but did not report any new cash or time commitments. "It confirms the goal of two percent by 2024".

Tusk also accused Trump of criticizing Europe nearly everyday and insisting that the European Union spends much more on defense than Russian Federation does.

The issue dominated the president's public remarks after he arrived in Brussels on Tuesday, striking fear among European officials that the president would question the US' role in the alliance.

"I'm a very stable genius", he said.

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. "And you'll be seeing that and I guess you'll be hearing that a little bit later". "It's very detailed", Macron said, according to France 24.

"I felt, we all felt, that we needed more time for a discussion on burden sharing", Stoltenberg explained to reporters afterward - even though the summit statement had been signed the previous day.

Trump's campaign and transition team have been accused of colluding with Russian agents in an effort to influence the 2016 U.S. election against Hillary Clinton.

Trump later called the meeting a "success".

"The numbers have gone up like a rocket ship. and they're going to be going up further", he said. Now, never more vividly apparent than in his behavior Wednesday, President Donald Trump seems perfectly inclined to dismantle it, if that serves his goal.

Four Sky riders surged to the front of the peloton with 3km remaining, and domestique Michal Kwiatkowski pulled the peloton into the base of the final climb.

"We think President Trump is basically right that the foundation of a successful alliance is fair contributions by all parties", he said. "That is all." This is a direct and blatant contradiction of the American President by a leader who was once his best friend in Europe.

NATO, a pillar of the global order, emerged from a two-day confrontation with President Donald Trump on Thursday intact but distracted and shaken, a further challenge to the alliance as it faces an expansionist Russian Federation and growing authoritarianism among some of its own members.

"It all came together at the end", Mr Trump said.

During Trump's meeting with Putin, McCain said, the president "must reverse his disturbing tendency to show America's adversaries the deference & esteem that should be reserved for our allies".

Although Trump administration officials point to the long-standing alliance between the United States and the United Kingdom, Trump's itinerary in England will largely keep him out of central London, where significant protests are expected.

NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg is insisting that Georgia will one day join the world's biggest security alliance, despite separatist ambitions in parts of the former Soviet republic.
