Trump gears up for meeting with "competitor" Putin after rocky North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit

"He said he is very committed to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the fact that we have made many important decisions on stepping up the fight against terrorism, new command structure, combined with more defense spending makes North Atlantic Treaty Organisation stronger and we are more united because we had open and frank discussions", Stoltenberg said.

But more than half of U.S. exports go to just three countries - Mexico, South Korea, and China - and the European Commission says less than one percent of Europe's gas come from America.

After a tense first day, Trump didn't ease up on the second.

He remained noncommittal on whether the United States might recognize Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea, which the United States views as illegal. "He seems to look at this as we do everything for them, and we provide them with benefits, and they just take advantage of us". Trump has repeatedly denounced low levels of defense spending among remaining members, particularly Germany.

Some will say that an unpredictable president such as Donald Trump is the only American leader who could achieve these outcomes - because the fear is real. He said that President Trump's approach had lent a new sense of urgency to things. It's very detailed. It confirms the goal of 2 percent by 2024.

Mr Trump did not go into details about what specific countries had promised but suggested they would be increasing their rates of spending "at a much faster clip". He also reportedly said that if the accelerated target - which was originally agreed for 2024 - is not honored the USA would "do our own thing", sources told the New York Times and Washington Post. "The additional money they will be putting up has been really awesome". Trump claimed victory after bitterly criticizing key allies, notably Germany, for failing to pay their way at one of the most fractious summits in Nato's 70-year history.

"The people voted to break it up (Britain's ties with the EU)", Trump told a press conference in Brussels on Thursday. I don't. I'm very consistent.

The US president described himself as a "very stable genius" for securing agreements for extra cash after years of the burden falling on America. "The final declaration has been signed by all 29 members of the alliance, including the United States", the French minister noted. President Trump "didn't set a timetable, but he was very clear that other countries needed to step up and fulfill their obligations", Sanders told ABC News. Tens of thousands of people are likely to protest in the British capital on Friday, while Trump is outside the city at May's country residence Chequers, before visiting Windsor to meet the Queen.

Hundreds of demonstrators chanted outside the US ambassador's residence where Trump was staying on the outskirts of London, providing a preview of the forceful protests expected during his two-day British stay.

Merkel, who grew up in communist East Germany, shot back that she knew what it meant to be under Kremlin domination and Germany had the right to make its own policy choices. Trump's suggestion was informal and made in a closed-door session of on Wednesday, but it did little to ease tensions at an already charged meeting. May's leading rival, referring ominously to the "turmoil" that the prime minister faces in her party.

Trump's trip to Britain will test the bonds of the U.S. and U.K.'s special relationship.

When asked how that conversation might go, Trump said, "He may deny it".

"I think he's got what it takes". "And that's fine. Of course, they kill us on trade".
