  • Donald Trump takes the fight to NATO

USA officials have told Reuters that Washington is preparing another review of strategy, a year after Trump begrudgingly agreed to extend involvement in the 17-year-old war. "I would imagine that President Trump will be well prepared by the National Security Council and all of his people, knowing that dealing with Putin, who will be ultra-prepared, tough, ruthless. not want to give nothing".

In 2017, the alliance saw its biggest increase in defense spending "in a generation", he said, signaling to his aggrieved ally in the White House that "we see that all Allies have started to increase defense spending based on the national plans we have agreed to develop previous year".

Tensions rose on the final day of the two-day summit when members met in an emergency session amid demands from Trump for all members to spend 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense.

Trump said there had been "tremendous progress" and that allies were "going to up it at levels they've never seen before".

Trump has taken particular aim at the proposed Nord Stream II gas pipeline, which is set to run from Russian Federation to Germany under the Baltic Sea. But Mr. Trump appeared determined to upset that tradition, demanding North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries spend 4 percent of their gross domestic product on defense, up from the 2 percent the US has previously requested.

"I am very happy that today we are united in freedom, the Federal Republic of Germany".

"There is no break-up between United States and Europe", the source said after Macron & Trump held "friendly" talks. The US president has been particularly critical of Germany, accusing Berlin of relying on the US for security while not paying enough into NATO's coffers.

The NATO summit is usually a chance for member nations to reaffirm their commitment to an alliance that focuses on Afghanistan, Syria, Ukraine and other world hotspots.

Trump wants the spending to go up to 4% of GDP, which is more than even the USA now spends on defense.

But Warsaw has at times been nervous about Trump's fondness for Russian President Vladimir Putin, with whom Trump will meet Monday in Helsinki, Finland.

It followed an uncomfortable first round at the summit where anxious Western allies were subjected to the US president's "America first" approach.

Instead, a series of events - a black-tie dinner with business leaders, a meeting with May and an audience with Queen Elizabeth II - will happen outside the bustling city, where Mayor Sadiq Khan has been in a verbal battle with Trump.

The meeting also saw Mr Trump single out Germany for criticism over its defence spending.

Woody Johnson, the USA ambassador to the United Kingdom, dismissed the significance of the protests, telling Fox News that one of the reasons the two countries are so close "is because we have the freedoms that we've all fought for".

At the contentious two-day summit that wrapped up Thursday, Trump intensified accusations that other nations in the 29-member alliance were not paying their fair share on defense.

He and first lady Melania Trump were caught on camera chatting with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg and German Chancellor Angela Merkel during an evening reception before a working dinner.

Schroeder went on to become a board member of several consortiums in which Russian government-controlled energy company Gazprom is at least the majority shareholder.
