Trump spoke after European Council President Donald Tusk addressed him in a statement, saying: "Appreciate your allies".
European Council president Donald Tusk is appealing to President Donald Trump to remember who his allies are as the USA leader prepares to meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Asked if May should remain in power, Trump said, "That's up to the people", while also complimenting her top rival, Boris Johnson.
But experts say the United States can not force any allies into spending more, no matter how much the president balks.
Accusing the president of criticising Europe "almost daily", Mr Tusk said the European Union spent more than Russian Federation on defence and as much as China.
Referring to Monday's planned summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Mr Trump added: "And I have Putin. Very supportive", Trump said. He has pulled the US out of the Paris climate agreement as well as the Iran nuclear deal, slapped tariffs on steel and aluminum imports, and threatened additional tariffs on products like automobiles.
He vowed not to be "taken advantage" of by the European Union, which he accuses of freeloading by relying on the United States for its defence while blocking U.S. imports into the bloc, the world's biggest market.

Trump's relationship with Putin, and his inconsistent stance on Russia's interference in the 2016 United States presidential election, is perhaps one of the most scrutinized aspects of his presidency.
Though the European allies expressed dissatisfaction with the uncertainty that Trump's approach has brought them, they appear to be reluctantly getting onboard.
Trump, who has compared the sentiment that underpinned the Brexit vote to leave the European Union to his own election, will be making his maiden presidential trip to Britain at a fraught time for May. "I don't know how much protection we get from protecting you". I get along with her very well, I have a very good relationship. "This is not fair, nor is it acceptable", Trump tweeted Monday morning, previewing his message in Brussels.
Trump's victory in the 2016 presidential election shocked British diplomats in Washington and relations between May and Trump have been strained at times.
'The president believes that it is important to have a relationship with Russian Federation so that we can talk about the importance of Russian Federation doing better.
Woody Johnson, Trump's ambassador to the United Kingdom, said the president is aware of the planned protests but insisted that Trump "appreciates free speech" in both countries.
