Donald Trump again says he’s a ‘very stable genius’ at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit

US President Donald Trump said on Thursday he was ready to help smaller North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries to buy US weapons as he pushed them to spend more on their own defence.

He then held a short notice news conference to say he had persuaded allies to pay more.

"All NATO Nations must meet their 2% commitment, and that must ultimately go to 4%!"

Donald Trump is "applying political pressure" over Nord Stream 2, a planned gas link from Russian Federation to Germany which is opposed by the United States government, a senior Polish official said on Friday.

"President Trump wants to see our allies share more of the burden and at a very minimum meet their already stated obligations". Trump claimed a personal victory after telling European allies to increase their defence spending or lose Washington's support. "It confirms the goal of 2% by 2024".

"That is something we certainly agree with", Trudeau told a news conference.

Nato Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg confirmed there had been a "frank" discussion but French president Emmanuel Macron denied reports that Mr Trump had threatened to pull out of the 69-year-old Western alliance if he did not get his way.

Parents opposed to scrapped sex-ed curriculum take matters into own hands
Thompson says she'll announce soon a schedule of parent consultations across the province, on how to implement the revised curriculum.

In addition to lessening Europe's reliance on Russian gas, Trump's attack on Nord Stream-2 is also part of an effort to boost USA liquefied natural gas exports to Germany, Alexei Kokin, a senior oil and gas analyst at UralSib Financial Corp in Moscow, told New Europe by phone on July 12. "He seems to look at this as we do everything for them, and we provide them with benefits, and they just take advantage of us".

Earlier, Trump strode into NATO's new headquarters to shake hands with leaders - but only after publicly railing against Germany at a breakfast meeting with Stoltenberg.

Going into the week he was pressuring them to spend 2 percent of their gross domestic product (GDP) on defense, a figure that was established in 2002 and reaffirmed in 2014 when the allies not meeting the target pledged to reach it within a decade.

In an apparent swipe at Trump, he added: "Sometimes the corridors, comments and tweets take on more importance than what is negotiated, said or endorsed by heads of state". "I'm very consistent", he replied.

"And frankly, maybe everybody is going to have a good relationship with Russian Federation, so there will be a lot less problem with the pipeline", Trump said.

Cristiano Ronaldo deal with Juventus has Fiat workers planning strike
At this stage, it isn't expected to have a major impact because Melfi is just one of seven sites used by FCA and USB only represents a small number of employees there.

Woody Johnson, the U.S. 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". Although Trump administration officials point to the longstanding alliance between the United States and the United Kingdom, Trump's itinerary in England will largely keep him out of central London, where significant protests are expected. Before traveling to Helsinki for his meeting with Putin, Trump will have tea with Queen Elizabeth before heading to his golf course in Turnberry, Scotland, for the weekend.
