Trump claims victory in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending dispute

Trump claims victory in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending dispute

A senior US administration official, though, said Trump was aggressive while meeting in private with the leaders of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance, and said the United States will have a "reassessment" of commitments to the allies unless their defense budgets were raised, notes NBC.

Trump accused the prime minister of ignoring his advice on Brexit negotiations, in remarks that echoed Johnson's private barbs that the U.S. president would do a better job than May in negotiations.

Jankowicz thinks Trump needs to do more than bring up Moscow's alleged interference in the 2016 election during his upcoming meeting with Putin in Helsinki, as Trump has promised to do.

Trump, who arrived in Britain on Thursday, told the Sun newspaper that planned protests against him in London and other British cities made him feel unwelcome so he was avoiding the capital as much as possible.

In one tweet on Thursday, Khan didn't mention Trump by name - but said Londoners have the moral duty to protest when shared US-UK values are under attack.

The Sun's write-up of its interview, which was recorded, quoted him describing her as a "nice person" and saying they get along "very nicely".

At the same location a week ago, May finally won agreement for her Brexit plans from her cabinet after two years of tortuous internal wrangling. "I was very surprised and saddened that he was getting out of government".

'I am just saying I think he would be a great prime minister.

More recently ties have been strained by a probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential election and suspected collusion with the Trump campaign, as well as by the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. "I haven't been there in a long time", Trump said.

And Trump has now openly sided with them against the prime minister.

"I think he is a great representative for your country", he said. It's likely that this won't be the last we hear from Trump on his trip.

The NATO communique says that two-thirds of countries have plans to meet the spending target by 2024, and that, "all Allies have started to increase the amount they spend on defence in real terms".

"I don't know what you're going to do but whatever you're going to do is ok with us, just make sure you can trade with us", he said.

In his interview with The Sun, Trump slammed May over her "soft" Brexit plan, which has put May's standing as the head of the Conservative Party in jeopardy.

Calling her a "tremendous woman", Trump said "she has really never made a mistake".

Trump, as he has before, criticized London's mayor, Sadiq Khan, as having "done a very bad job on terrorism".

In the interview, which took place at the U.S. Embassy in Brussels, the president also lashed out at the Muslim mayor of London, saying he had done "a bad job".

He said that May's new, softer approach to Brexit - which would leave Britain sticking to a "common rulebook" with Brussels on goods - would kill off the chances of a much sought-after U.S. -U.K. trade deal.

The British government on Thursday published its long-awaited Brexit blueprint aimed at restarting stalled talks with the European Union, only for it to be panned by eurosceptics, the City of London and the U.S. president.

Another Twitter user re-jigged the lyrics to Atomic Kitten's "Whole Again", writing: "Looking back on when we first met, I cannot escape and I cannot forget, Donald, you're the one, You still turn me on, You can hold my hand again".
