The Guardian view on the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit: Europe must come together

Responding to criticism from Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council, who complained that Trump is "criticizing Europe nearly daily", Trump says the United States is "being taken advantage of" by the European Union. "Who would think? But the United Kingdom certainly - they certainly have a lot of things going on".

He said he got on well with Mrs May and had "always liked" Boris Johnson, who quit as foreign secretary on Monday.

"Certainly, the president has been very plainspoken about asking our allies to do more", Hutchison said from Brussels, noting that other former presidents, including Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama, did the same.

But Mrs May's plans for Brexit would tie Britain to the European Union by having a common rulebook on goods making it nearly impossible to have a free trade deal with the U.S. or other countries.

Also, the USA president tweeted that "NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS". Then, in 2014, they agreed to meet this goal by 2024.

European officials say while USA defence spending makes up 70 percent of combined allied governments' military budgets, and just 15 percent of United States expenditure is spent in Europe on NATO-related defence.

"The main concern is he will spend much of the time berating them on not spending enough on defense" before having "a love fest with Putin, like he did with Chairman Kim", Goldgeier said.

During his week-long European trip, the USA president is expected to make a visit to Great Britain, participate in a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and hold a meeting with the Russian leader in the Finnish capital of Helsinki on July 16.

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. NATO & US troops in Europe serve our national interests. "But we will work it out, and all countries will be happy". Separately, the USA envoy said she's concerned that Russian Federation is trying to "flip" Turkey and other American allies to its column. Stresses faced by the European Union, in major part because of the flow of refugees from the Middle East produced largely by the US-led invasion of Iraq in 2003, are also major threats to European security and directly benefit Putin.

"I have a very good relationship".

Speaking about solidarity, I want to dispel the American President's argument, which says that the USA alone protects Europe against our enemies, and that the U.S. is nearly alone in this struggle.

On Crimea: Trump has increased the USA military presence in Europe after the "annexation illegally of Crimea by Russia", Hutchison said.

While Mr Trump is looking to improve relations with Russian Federation, there has been alarm at the deteriorating climate with his allies in Europe and what he might agree to with President Putin.
