As Trump slams North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, ambassador says Europeans are 'stepping up' on funding

"It's not as much as 2 percent yet, but I think they will recommit more to do more because they realize that Europe does need to do more and they are the strongest of the economies in Europe", Hutchison added.

Meanwhile, Putin does not plan to meet with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron, who is en route to St. Petersburg to cheer on France national team. The White House downplayed the significance of the encounter, but experts expressed concern there was no official USA record of the talk. 'I'm confident the UK-US alliance will play a leading role in advancing our shared values of democracy and freedom, ' he said.

"I'm going to tell NATO: You've got to start paying your bills".

"He has this general view that America's allies have been taking advantage of it, and that all of these arrangements are what he likes to call 'bad deals.' Apparently at the G7 summit, he told our partners that NATO was as bad as NAFTA", said Goldgeier, referring to the North American Free Trade Agreement Trump wants to terminate.

"I want to emphasize that the 2 percent [of GDP contribution] that everyone pledged to make the effort to attain is not just a number that was pulled out of the air", U.S. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation envoy Kay Bailey Hutchison said Thursday.

Zlatan Says Sweden Has ‘Big Chance’ To Win World Cup
But France on Friday presents him with another shot at redemption - and possibly last - to establish his legacy at the World Cup . Playing without one of their star strikers in Edinson Cavani , who missed the match due to injury, Uruguay put up a good fight.

Trump's comments come the day after U.S. NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison said efforts to prod members into increasing their defense spending are finding success.

Through all this has run a thread of accusations, strangely enough by the very liberals who for decades insisted USA leaders needed to work more closely with Moscow, that Trump should be actively unfriendly toward Putin. Instead, a series of events _ a black-tie dinner with business leaders, a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May and an audience with Queen Elizabeth II _ will happen outside the bustling city, where Mayor Sadiq Khan has been in a verbal battle with Trump.

Will Trump ignore all of this in pursuit of a new U.S. -Russia alliance?

The source said that Trump then congratulated Putin on his reelection, and lamented that Russian Federation and the United States didn't get along better. Saying that he wants to improve relations with Moscow, Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on conclusions by the nation's intelligence agencies that Russian Federation tried to help him win the 2016 election, noting that Putin has "strongly" denied being behind the interference.

As many as 33% of those surveyed said they had positive expectations from the summit, while one percent said that, the outcome of the highly-talked about event would be negative for Russian Federation. Which means his words and deeds during his European swing will drive policy - especially since aides have acknowledged Trump has few goals for the two summits.
