Trump to talk to Russia's Putin about substantially reducing nuclear weapons

He said the USA "pays tens of Billions of Dollars too much to subsidize Europe" and demanded that members meet their pledge to spend 2 percent of GDP on defence, which "must ultimately go to 4%!"

Trump claimed victory after bitterly criticizing key allies, notably Germany, for failing to pay their way at one of the most fractious summits in Nato's 70-year history.

"Trump has pointed to several countries, especially Germany", the first source said, adding that there was "hard language, with repeated references to Germany" and even to the German chancellor, "calling her Angela".

The White House has been pushing a "Buy American" initiative which aims to help drum up billions of dollars more in arms business.

Other US companies that stand to benefit from the US arms sales push include missiles maker Raytheon Co and General Dynamics Corp, which builds warships and other military equipment.

He was referencing the United States television show that aired from 1957-1966 about a criminal defense attorney named Perry Mason who would often prove his clients' innocence by implicating another person.

Answering the question about the consequences for the European companies involved in the Nord Stream 2 project, possible USA sanctions, the EC vice-president said he shares the opinion expressed by Perry that allies should not punish each other's enterprises.

In the end, however, Mr. Trump agreed to NATO's 23-page declaration that said it would boost defense spending, and reconfirmed their outrage over Moscow's invasion of the Crimea, and maintaining sanctions on Russian Federation.


Trump made the comments during a press conference with UK Prime Minister Theresa May.

At the same time, he insisted Vladimir Putin was a "competitor" rather than an "enemy", ahead of their meeting in Finland next week after his four-day trip to the UK.

"The concerns about Russian Federation, the concerns about threats to the alliance were met with solidarity and unity", he said, "and we are looking forward to a good meeting and a productive and constructive meeting between President Putin and President Trump". "But if Germany opts to drop this new pipeline, then obviously the opportunity for LNG would be much greater", Kokin said. "He is representing Russian Federation, I am representing the United States", he added.

He also vowed to raise allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, amid an ongoing United States investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Moscow.

Merkel's predecessor, Gerhard Schroeder, a longtime friend of Putin, has championed the Nord Stream enterprise since just before being voted out of office in 2005. "I think that's very inappropriate".

Woody Johnson, the U.S. ambassador to the United Kingdom, dismissed the significance of the protests, telling Fox News that one of the reasons the two countries are so close "is because we have the freedoms that we've all fought for".

Referring to an ongoing investigation into ties between his election campaign and Russian Federation, he decried a "rigged witch-hunt" that was hurting the United States and its relationship with Russian Federation.

There, while on board Air Force 1, he used his Twitter feed to rescind his support of a joint communique and slam Trudeau personally after hearing the prime minister repeat Canada's insistence it would defend itself from US aggression on trade. "The people voted to break it up (Britain's ties with the EU)", said Mr Trump. And one of the freedoms we have is freedom of speech and the freedom to express your views.
