Trump forces North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to boost defence spending

Speaking at a media conference after two days of talks, Mr Trump said the US's allies had committed to raising their commitment beyond 2 per cent.

Trump said there had been "tremendous progress" and that allies were "going to up it at levels they've never seen before". "It has been really unbelievable to see the level of spirit in that room".

"Yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening", Trump said, adding that, in response, European countries agreed to up their spending.

"As with all our summits, sometimes the corridors, comments and tweets take on more importance than what is negotiated, said or endorsed by heads of state".

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal reported Trump as saying "I'll do my own thing" if spending is not immediately increased.

He and first lady Melania Trump were caught on camera chatting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg and German Chancellor Angela Merkel during an evening reception before a working dinner.

"The information included in this report would be instrumental in informing Congress' oversight of our own military and defense spending and would help educate lawmakers on the return on investment we receive in exchange for our involvement in global alliances". He said the USA commitment to the 29-member North Atlantic Treaty Organization remains very strong and cited "the additional money they will be putting up" and "the level of spirit in that room" during the meetings.

Republican senators who recently returned from Moscow have some advice for President Donald Trump ahead of his meeting Monday in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin: Be prepared, be careful and try not to be alone.

"The danger", Vershbow said, "is that he's turning at least his base, and maybe other Americans, against North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and against USA global leadership by falsely defining it as a protection racket where we haven't been paid enough by the protectees, rather than as a mutually beneficial alliance that has kept peace and expanded the frontiers of democracy". Is he your friend? "I'm a very stable genius". Hopefully, someday, he'll be a friend.

Trump insisted that he would bring up key subjects including Syria, although he once again failed to rule out recognising Russia's annexation of Crimea. "It will be over a relatively short period of years". "Would I have allowed it to happen?"

Mr Trump said he didn't want Russian Federation to be a threat, while adding that his meeting with Mr Putin next week "may be the easiest on his Europe trip".

"Everyone's agreed to substantially up their commitment", Trump said in an impromptu press conference in Brussels. "I don't know that is what they voted for".
