Trump forces NATO allies to boost defence spending

Trudeau announces new Canada-led training mission in Iraq

Trudeau, Trump talk trade during sideline meeting at NATO summit in Brussels

Trump is scheduled to meet Putin in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday.

The press conference comes as thousands of people protest in London against his visit.

Jens Stoltenberg, secretary general of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, second right, shakes hands with US President Donald Trump as Angela Merkel, Germany's chancellor, second left, Charles Michel, Belgium's prime minister, second left, watch.

Speaking to reporters while returning from a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, President Andrzej Duda on Thursday said he had discussed the idea with USA leader Donald Trump on the sidelines of the gathering in Brussels.

We now know, however, that he had been told that Russian Federation was trying to help his father's campaign and may have dirt on Hillary Clinton in a private email exchange just the month before.

Then-President Obama in 2016 had also predicted a tough road for a US-UK trade deal.

"I would have done it much differently", Trump told The Sun newspaper in an explosive interview just hours before rubbing elbows with the British leader at a lavish black-tie dinner at Blenheim Castle in Oxfordshire.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is billing a pre-existing plan to grow military spending by 70 per cent over the next 10 years as Canada's answer to Donald Trump's persistent demand that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies spend two per cent of their GDP on defence. At the same breakfast (and on several other occasions later in the day), Trump blasted German Chancellor Angela Merkel for an energy deal her country has with Russian Federation, saying they are "totally controlled by Russian Federation", and a "captive" of the country.

NATO, a pillar of the global order, emerged from a two-day confrontation with President Donald Trump on Thursday intact but distracted and shaken, a further challenge to the alliance as it faces an expansionist Russian Federation and growing authoritarianism among some of its own members. I don't. I'm very consistent. "She didn't listen to me".

He also suggested that Boris Johnson, who resigned as foreign secretary this week over May's plans, would do a better job.

Poland's president says the debates over North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending that US President Donald Trump ignited are paying off for countries like his on the alliance's eastern flank because they have led to more defense spending by allies. I have a lot of respect for the prime minister. As images of the front page story were released on Twitter, fury spread among United Kingdom diplomats. "I don't believe in walking into the room with a world leader who's an enemy, who's a strategic threat, unless you have a specific game plan".

However, he doubled down on his comments about Johnson, before adding that "this incredible woman right here is doing a fantastic job".

Like at previous summits, some European countries were hesitant to open the door to Georgia now, prompting Margvelashvili to note, "we have to reach that consensus because this is not only a security organization but it is a democratic organization and you need the support of each country. Fake news", he told their reporter.
