'A great meeting': Trump wants NATO allies to double defence spending

'A great meeting': Trump wants NATO allies to double defence spending 'A great meeting': Trump wants NATO allies to double defence spending

Trump's visit to Britain followed two days of a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Belgium, where the US president shook up the conference with rhetoric about other members failing to meet fiscal defense requirements, the possibility that he could end the United States' 70-year membership in the alliance and Germany being "captive" to Russian energy.

Mr Trump said he would be discussing the civil war in Syria, the conflict in Ukraine, as well as allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 United States election.

Trump and Putin, who control the world's two biggest nuclear arsenals, are due to meet on Monday in Helsinki, a venue which evokes memories of Cold War show-downs between the Soviet Union and the United States.

"I believe in Nato", Mr Trump told a press conference after a fraught Nato summit in Brussels.

Trump also singled out Germany and its chancellor Angela Merkel for criticism, a day after saying Berlin had become a "captive of Russia" because of a gas pipeline deal and should be paying more for defense.

"The communique is clear: it reaffirms the commitment to two per cent (of GDP)", said Macron, who was photographed smiling and sharing a hug with Trump yesterday despite recent tensions between the two.

"I would say I would give our relationship in terms of grade the highest level of special", Mr Trump said. She was hoping to win over critics of her Brexit proposal with the release of a 104-page document outlining details of the plan.

Trump said Khan had done "a very bad job on terrorism" and said he had "not been hospitable to a government that is very important".

"I look at cities in Europe, and I can be specific if you'd like".

In a chaotic 28 hours at NATO, President Donald Trump disparaged longtime allies, cast doubt on his commitment to the mutual-defense organization and sent the 29-member pact into frenzied emergency session.

When asked if there was any way for relations with the Kremlin to improve while Russian Federation continues to occupy Crimea, which it annexed 2014, Trump said: "Yes, I think so". He said after their visit he thinks the two countries can reach a free trade agreement.

Although Trump is staying at the US ambassador's London mansion during his two-day trip to London, all of his scheduled public events are outside the city.

The Bulgarian President, formerly the commander of the Air Force before being elected head of state on a ticket backed by the opposition socialists, used Trump's statements to take a sideswipe at Bulgaria'scentre-right government, saying that Bulgaria was "reluctant" to allocate funds to the armed forces.

The President said the newspaper didn't include the "tremendous things" he said about Ms May in the interview. He also said he will bring up the issue of Russian Federation meddling in the 2016 USA election.

"I cherish the special relationship with the U.S. and the many Americans who contribute to our city", posted Khan, London's first Muslim mayor.

"I actually told Theresa May how to [conduct the Brexit negotiations] but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me", Trump added.

Another Twitter user re-jigged the lyrics to Atomic Kitten's "Whole Again", writing: "Looking back on when we first met, I cannot escape and I cannot forget, Donald, you're the one, You still turn me on, You can hold my hand again".
