Trump to open trip by meeting with nervous North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders

NATO leaders fear Trump crisis at key summit

U.S. President Donald Trump (R) speaks beside NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at the start of the NATO summit at their new headquarters in Brussels, Belgium, May 25, 2017.

Although Hutchison said threats by Trump to impose tariffs on European cars haven't come up in the context of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the president has accused European members of the military alliance of denying USA companies fair trade access. "This is not fair, nor is it acceptable", Trump wrote in a July 9 tweet.

Donald Trump spoke to reporters just before heading off on his trip to Europe, where he suggested that he's most looking forward to his meeting with Vladimir Putin.

He will then head to Helsinki for talks with Russian leader Vladimir Putin and some experts have expressed fears the pair will agree the U.S. should station fewer troops in Europe. For context, the United States spends a massive amount on defense - 3.61 percent of our 2016 GDP was dedicated to it. "Charge us big tariffs and barriers". Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of all'. "The United States is not going to take care of everything", Trump said at a rally last week. "'And it means a lot more to you than protecting us because I don't know how much protection we get by protecting you'".

Although administration officials point to the long-standing alliance between the United States and the United Kingdom, Trump's itinerary will largely keep him out of central London, where significant protests are expected. British Prime Minister Theresa May's government is fractured by Brexit, and German Chancellor Angela Merkel is struggling to hold her coalition government together amid the immigration crisis.

"Getting ready to leave for Europe".

Trump also took aim at what he indicated were trade inequities with the EU on Monday in an indication he will attempt to link the USA commitment to European security with trade. 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.

The meeting will be closely watched to see whether Mr. Trump will rebuke or embrace Putin, who has repeatedly denied the allegations of election meddling, in spite of evidence to the contrary.

As the investigation into ties between Russian Federation and trump continues, Trump's decision to meet one-on-one with Putin at an upcoming summit has drawn particular scrutiny, It seems Trump either does really have troubling ties to the Kremlin, or he doesn't mind acting in ways that make it look that way. This is not only $4.7 billion more than Germany is slated to spend on its army in 2018, but it also exceeds previously proposed increase for 2019 by $785 million.
