After Putin mentioned that White House officials were trying to interfere, a person with direct knowledge of the conversation said that Trump told to Putin, "Those are stupid people; you shouldn't listen to them, "The New York Times reported Monday".

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 US commitment to European security with trade. "Europeans spend on defence many times more than Russia and as much as China, and I think you can have no doubt, Mr President, that this is an investment in common American and European defence and security, which cannot be said with confidence about Russian or Chinese spending".

Trump has slapped tariffs on billions of dollars worth of steel and aluminum imports from China, the European Union, Canada and others, prompting retaliation against United States products. -NATO meeting ahead of the summit, according to Reuters.

Donald Trump is scheduled to be in Brussels by late on Tuesday.

The comments will be seen by many as an endorsement of Mr Johnson who is at the centre of speculation of an attempt to remove Mrs May from office as she tries to plough on with a weakened cabinet having also lost her Brexit Secretary David Davis.

"The allies are going to inform Trump on Putin just as much as his advisors are going to", Nina Jackowitz, a Russian Federation expert at the Wilson Center, said.

"The president was willing to offer concessions to Kim without getting anything specific or concrete in return", said Jeffrey Rathke, deputy director of the Europe Program at the nonpartisan Center for Strategic and International Studies.

"This administration seems to treat our allies as adversaries, and treat our adversaries, or potential adversaries, like their friends", Warner said to CNN on Monday.

Trump's weeklong trip to Europe will continue with a stop in Scotland before ending with a sit-down in Helsinki with Putin.

After his outburst at the Group of Seven gathering, Trump is making good on his mission to puncture multilateral institutions and remake the world order in America's interests.

Trump's relationship with Putin, and his inconsistent stance on Russia's interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election, is perhaps one of the most scrutinized aspects of his presidency. He also has long criticized Merkel for her 2015 decision to admit more than 1 million asylum seekers from Syria and elsewhere, warning that they were a proverbial Trojan horse who could destroy Europe's way of life.
