Trump suggests North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries to double defence spending

Trump suggests North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries to double defence spending Trump suggests North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries to double defence spending

TRUMP, at the subsequent news conference with May: "I don't know what they're going to do, but whatever you do is OK with me". "There is a great collegial atmosphere in that room, that I don't think they've had for many years".

Trump tweeted that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries "Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025" and then rattled them further by privately suggesting member nations should spend 4 percent of their gross domestic product on defense - a bigger share than even the United States now pays, according to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation statistics.

Trump is set to meet his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin for their first ever summit in Helsinki on July 16 though Moscow said the former's remarks were unlikely to affect what was always going to be a hard summit between two countries known to have several differences, the Reuters report added. They were "still reeling" from his "diatribe accusing Germany of being a "captive of Russia" and insistence that "delinquent" allies increase defense spending 'immediately'". "I mean, we'll - you'll - be the first to know, OK?"

Video of Wednesday's meeting, obtained by ABC News, showed Kelly appearing visibly uncomfortable as Trump ranted to NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg about a gas pipeline deal between Germany and Russian Federation. "We understand that this American president is very serious about defense spending, and this is having a clear impact". "The commitment was at 2 percent".

When pressed to explain Trump's claims he credited the president with a "new sense of urgency" among allies to "redouble our efforts" to increase defence spending, but did not report any new cash or time commitments.

Trump said there had been "tremendous progress" after his "firm" warnings during the tense two-day meeting in Brussels, during which he singled out Germany for special criticism.

Mr Trump's early-morning tweets from Brussels had been typically critical. "It's disproportionate and not fair to the tax payers of the United States".

And while the president has said he ultimately wants to up commitments doubled to 4 percent, for now he said that countries have agreed to move at a "faster clip" to meet the 2 percent threshold.

While Democratic congressional leaders condemned Trump's attacks on Germany as "brazen insults and denigration of one of America's most steadfast allies", Republicans took a more benign view, and some backed him outright.

Germany, one of America's closest allies, is doubling its energy imports from Russia's Gazprom just as the USA continues to spend billions of dollars to protect Germany and the rest of Europe from Russian Federation. "I'm very consistent. I'm a very stable genius".

US ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison also appeared uneasy during Trump's tirade, averting her gaze from the president as well as her NATO colleagues sitting across the table.
