Chris Wallace Announces Exclusive Interview With Vladimir Putin Monday After Trump Summit

Trump claimed victory for allies pledging "additional funds at a level that nobody's ever seen before".

At the press conference on Thursday, a Croatian reporter dared ask if Trump would change his mind once he leaves Brussels for London.

Trump threw the summit into turmoil by demanding not only that allies reach their commitment to increase spending to two percent of GDP "immediately" - instead of by 2024 as previously agreed - but also telling them to eventually double the figure to a punishing four percent.

Why are there only 5 out of 29 countries that have met their commitment? "After we're at 2 percent, we'll start talking about going higher".

The summit came as transatlantic ties are already under strain due to U.S. trade tariffs, along with fears that Trump's summit on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin will pull him further from Nato's orbit. And the president's declaration was also directly contradicted by one of his closest personal allies, French President Emanuel Macron. European diplomats are feeling exhausted and disrespected after the Trump tornado came to town, but at least he hasn't pulled US troops out of Germany.

The president said he would raise the issue of Russian meddling in the US election. We have a tremendous relationship with Germany.

"Germany is totally controlled by Russia because they will be getting 60-70 percent of their energy from Russia and a new pipeline", Trump said to reporters Wednesday morning, calling the alleged dependence on Russian energy "inappropriate".

"All NATO Nations must meet their 2% commitment, and that must ultimately go to 4%!" "Hopefully someday, maybe, he'll be a friend", said Trump.

Other NATO leaders emphasized their public support for the alliance, implicitly pushing back on Trump's attacks.

"The people voted to break it up (Britain's ties with the EU)", Trump told a press conference in Brussels on Thursday.

"Because of me they've raised about $40 billion over the previous year".

But the vehemence of Trump's on-camera breakfast attack on Germany for its backing of a second Nord Stream gas pipeline, and for being "captive" to Russian Federation came as a shock.

Including that commitment, however, Canada's current defence spending plans are only expected to bring it to 1.4 per cent of GDP, well short of the Wales target. Although Trump administration officials point to the longstanding alliance between the United States and the United Kingdom, Trump's itinerary in England will largely keep him out of central London, the centre of the protests.

Trump claimed member nations had agreed to boost their defense budgets significantly and reaffirmed - after days of griping that the US was being taken advantage of by its allies - that the USA remains faithful to the accord.

At present, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has 29 members and few have reached this goal - only five North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members are expected to meet the 2% target by the end of the year.

Trump famously leaned on defense firms publicly to try to lower prices for the government - and the firms in turn became huge winners in his budget proposals. "Because I said it was unfair". Though NATO allies have squabbled in the past, Trump seemed to be leaving in his wake not just bruised feelings, but deeper concerns about the future of the Western alliance that has served as a bedrock of the worldwide order. And one of the freedoms we have is freedom of speech and the freedom to express your views.

"I think it's fair to say that here in my office the team recognized what was coming and the importance of speaking out on it from my perspective and from the district's perspective", Curtis told Fox 13.
