EU’s Tusk criticizes Trump over attitude on European allies

EU’s Tusk criticizes Trump over attitude on European allies”

Trump has requested closed-door meetings to take place without aides or the media involved.

While countries closer to Russian Federation, such as Latvia, Lithuania, Romania, and Poland, significantly boosted defense, most other members took a more relaxed approach, with Germany's defense minister saying in 2015 that she didn't see a need to meet the spending bar, Deutsche Welle reported.

While it's true that the U.S. provides roughly 22% of NATO's budget, this percentage is based off a carefully crafted formula that includes factors such as the size of a member state's economy.

But Sir Kim Darroch, UK ambassador to the United States, said the president will be "an honoured guest, representing a partnership that is greater and deeper than any other in history". "This is not fair, nor is it acceptable", he said.

According to other prevailing assumptions, there is already a new Cold War with Russian Federation and that Putin alone is responsible for it, while the U.S. has totally clean hands. "We lost $151 billion past year on trade", the president told reporters. USA doesn't have and won't have a better ally than EU. "Charge us big Tariffs (& Barriers)!" he wrote on Twitter.

"Wow!" And in multiple tweets, he reiterated a familiar theme, complaining that the USA is shouldering an unfair share of defense costs overseas: "NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS", he tweeted. And It is not to sugarcoat Trump's gross failure to understand that U.S. power and influence in the world, essential underpinnings of his desire to put "American first", demand that the United States also work effectively with other countries, especially its allies and partners around the world.

"NATO really is making progress, and they are doing it really at President Trump's insistence", Hutchinson said on "Fox News Sunday". Most allies need to spend more on defense.

Trump meets Putin on July 16. Trump has argued that countries not paying their fair share are freeloading off the US and has threatened to stop protecting those he feels pay too little.

Supporters of Mr Trump have said he has been hurt and anguished by Mrs May's refusal to support him in public despite his efforts to back Britain as it tries to make Brexit work. For context, the United States spends a massive amount on defense - 3.61 percent of our 2016 GDP was dedicated to it. Separately, doubts about Trump's commitment to European security have pushed EU leaders to boost defense cooperation.

"We're being taken advantage of by the European Union", he said, referring to trade issues with the EU. I think there's going to be a key focus on our relationship on security and defence.

Tusk, a former Polish premier, addressing Trump directly about his meeting with Putin, said, "It is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem".

Well, the threat is left hanging: there are trade wars Mr Trump could fire up, or he could revive his campaign pledge to drop Washington's commitment to automatically defending North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies if they are attacked.

He will arrive in the United Kingdom on Thursday, and will visit London, Windsor as well as Scotland during his two day trip, which will also include a meeting with the Queen. 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. "Who would think?" Trump said.

US President Donald Trump meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the their bilateral meeting at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

Then, when asked about whether or not the Prime Minister should remain in power, Trump said: "Well, that's up to the people".
