NATO Fears Trump May Threaten to Pull Troops From Europe If They Don't Increase Spending
10 July, 2018, 17:13
Ahead the NATO Heads of State and Government summit scheduled from 11 to 12 July, 2018 in Brussels, Belgium, leaders face a major threat to the credibility of their military alliance at their summit this week - not from traditional foe Russian Federation, but from the head of their most powerful member, USA president Donald Trump.
James Goldgeier, professor at the School of International Service at American University, said that President Trump is correct to complain that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners should be spending more on their own security- this is a view held by former presidents. "This is unfair, nor is is acceptable". USA reports have suggested Trump may be interested in a drawdown in Germany, but the much greater changes seem to just be further panicky speculation built around Europe's general opposition to the Trump-Putin summit.
Responding to criticism from Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council, who complained that Trump is "criticizing Europe nearly daily", Trump says the United States is "being taken advantage of" by the European Union.
He will then head to Helsinki for talks with Russian leader Vladimir Putin and some experts have expressed fears the pair will agree the USA should station fewer troops in Europe.

"The president is going into a situation where most of the countries he will be talking to will not be thinking internationally because they have so many headaches domestically", said Christopher Swift, a national security scholar at Georgetown University.
Gee rejected that argument on several grounds, saying the US was relying on a "tortured interpretation" of the deal. A judge in a different case in San Diego ordered the government last month to reunite the families it had separated.
