Trump to talk to Russia's Putin about substantially reducing nuclear weapons

Trump again labels himself a ‘very stable genius

U.S. President Donald Trump says the U.S. commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation "remains very strong" despite reports that he threated to pull out in a dispute over defense spending.

At the same time Washington wanted to put on paper its concerns over Moscow's alleged meddling in the 2016 president election in the United States, the newspaper said, citing unnamed U.S. officials. As to whether he could unilaterally pull the USA out of the alliance without congressional approval, Trump said, "I think I probably can, but that's not necessary".

"I told people that I'd be very unhappy if they did not up their commitments very substantially", Trump told reporters after the meeting.

The early morning drama was part of two days of diplomatic theatre in Brussels, as allies tried to shield a post-war world order from his "America first" demands. I would actually say that she probably went the opposite way.

And while all member nations have agreed, in principle, to work toward the 2 percent spending goal, each country is ultimately beholden to unique political processes and must consult with their respective parliaments to secure increased military spending.

The head of the Polish president's National Security Bureau, Paweł Soloch, said that US President Donald Trump's opinion "is important if the project is to be blocked". "It reaffirms a commitment to 2% in 2024".

The uncertainty surrounding his hip injury got him shipped out of Boston and to Cleveland. Isaiah Thomas has agreed upon a one-year deal worth $2 million with the Denver Nuggets .


Pressed by reporters about whether he threatened to pull out of NATO, Trump acknowledged, "It was a little tough for a little while".

Indeed, Trump on Wednesday sought to raise the bar for members' spending, calling for them to double their spending commitments to 4 percent of gross domestic product.

It was a classic Trump performance - bluster, confrontation and demands followed by a unilateral declaration of victory - but his claim was quickly dismissed by the leaders of Italy and France, who disputed they had made any new pledges for increasing spending.

After an opening day of summit talks marked by clashes between Trump and German Chancellor Angela Merkel, NATO leaders had hoped to focus on policy on Ukraine and Afghanistan.

EU President Donald Tusk stepped up to the fight with his own salvo against Trump on Tuesday, telling him to "appreciate your allies" and reminding him Washington that Europe had come to its aid following the 9/11 attacks.

When asked how that conversation might go, Trump said, "He may deny it".

We are so happy to hear that our son is out of the cave and to welcome him home. "We wish you the best for this very tough time". Heavy rains had flooded the Tham Luang cave blocking the football team in after they first entered on June 23.


Trump insisted that he would bring up key subjects including Syria, although he once again failed to rule out recognising Russia's annexation of Crimea. "But I'm going to a pretty hot spot right now - right? - with a lot of resignations".

"I would have done it much differently", Trump told The Sun newspaper in an explosive interview just hours before rubbing elbows with the British leader at a lavish black-tie dinner at Blenheim Castle in Oxfordshire. "That is all", Macron said.

FORDHAM: Well, maybe we can remind ourselves of what the issue in question is here. "I'm just saying, I think he'd be a great prime minister".

The second day of the defence pact meeting was disrupted and repeatedly rescheduled, as Trump's insistence on renegotiating his allies' defence budgets took precedence over issues such as Ukraine and Georgia's vulnerability to Russian Federation.

The summit's dramatic, chaotic conclusion - complete with the US president suddenly making demands following a formal communique - bore a striking similarity to Trump's departure from last month's G7 meetings in Quebec.

But the vehemence of Trump's on-camera breakfast attack on Germany for its backing of a second Nord Stream gas pipeline, and for being "captive" to Russian Federation came as a shock.

The US President in an explosive press conference with Theresa May hailed Brexit a "blessing" and declared he is prepared to do "whatever it takes" to maintain the special relationship with the UK.
