Donald Trump's demand sparks North Atlantic Treaty Organisation panic

Trump said of May's plan for a "soft Brexit" as opposed to a hard break from the European Union: "I don't know if that's what they voted for".

Since last year's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit allies had added $US41bn to their budgets, he said, and now they would redouble their efforts.

Trump had spent his time in Brussels berating members of the military alliance for failing to spend enough of their money on defence, accusing Europe of freeloading off the US and raising doubts about whether he would come to members' defence if they were attacked. "It confirms the goal of 2 percent by 2024".

Excerpts from Trump's bombshell interview were published Thursday just as the president was scheduled to dine with May at the palace.

Following Thursday's emergency session of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members, Trump declared the military alliance to be "very unified, very strong, no problem". One notable but often forgotten example is that Trump's son, Donald Trump Jr., called the claims of Russian Federation hacking the DNC "phony" and "lies" on July 11, 2016. When asked at a news conference in Britain on Friday whether he would tell Putin to stay out of USA elections, Trump said "yes". What we learned today was that more members of the GRU, the Russian intelligence unit within their military, were involved.

And while the president has said he ultimately wants to up commitments doubled to 4 percent, for now he said that countries have agreed to move at a "faster clip" to meet the 2 percent threshold.

"I have to say, I think it's very sad when Germany makes a massive oil and gas deal with Russia, where you're supposed to be guarding against Russia, and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia", Trump said Wednesday at a meeting with the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation secretary-general.

In 1998, Croatia, which had emerged from a bitter independence war only three years earlier, made its debut at a World Cup finals. Russian Federation game also provided a nice lift for Fox . "He congratulated us on a very good game".

He again called himself a "very stable genius" and took "total credit" for what he said was a $33 billion (A$45 billion) increase in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defence spending this year.

Trump had opened the first day of talks in Brussels on Wednesday with a public diatribe against Germany, the second biggest state in the Western defence alliance, criticising its reliance on Russian gas imports and failure to spend more on defence.

"As we engage Russian Federation we must do so from a position of unity and strength - holding out hope for a better future, but also clear and unwavering on where Russian Federation needs to change its behaviour for this to become a reality", she said.

Arizona U.S. Sen. John McCain echoed the sentiment. Trump tweeted on Thursday morning before the second day of talks.

Sen. Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, also said he is concerned that Putin will take "full advantage of an ill-prepared" Trump.

Following these remarks conference, President Trump promptly disappeared en route for Britain, where he'll be toasted by both the prime minister and the queen, though Britons have threatened sustained protests.

"You know, what am I going to do?" She wanted to go a different route.
