"Everyone has agreed to substantially up their commitment". As Elisabeth Braw argues for Foreign Policy, Trump's constant berating of allies actually makes it more hard for governments in countries like Germany to increase their defense spending, since no government wants to look like it's doing the bidding of an extremely unpopular American president. "I think 4 percent is the right number". "It's a very effective way of negotiating".
"It will be over a relatively short period of years", Trump said.
Speaking after a two-day summit in Brussels, he said allies had committed to spending more than 2% of their annual output (GDP) on defence budgets.
The US President then was scheduled to meet with allies participating in the NATO-led "Resolute Support" mission to train and advise Afghan security forces.
President Trump wrapped up the two-day North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels stating that he had successfully pushed member states to increase their defense spending beyond previously agreement levels, but French President Emmanuel Macron said there was no agreement beyond the 2014 summit increase.
"On top of it all, Germany just started paying Russian Federation, the country they want protection from, Billions of Dollars for their Energy needs coming out of a new pipeline from Russian Federation". He told fellow leaders he would prefer a 4 percent target, closer to the 3.6 percent of GDP the United States spends on defense.
After Trump spoke, French President Emmanuel Macron said nothing had changed from NATO's earlier commitment, despite Trump's claims.
Earlier Wednesday, Trump said the USA "in actual numbers", is spending 4.2 per cent of its GDP on defence. The US embassy in London has already advised US citizens there to "keep a low profile" during Trump's visit and to "be aware of your surroundings (and) exercise caution if unexpectedly in the vicinity of large gatherings that may become violent".
US Secretary of Energy Rick Perry said in Brussels that he did not hear any of the European Union countries viewing Nord Stream 2 positively, the report said.
This is a totally reasonably but completely hopeless stance when dealing with Trump. The important thing now is that we need to invest more - we need to get more money. "This week we have an opportunity to deepen this unique trading relationship and begin discussions about how we will forge a strengthened, ambitious and future-proof trade partnership".
When asked how that conversation might go, Trump said, "He may deny it".
