  • Trump heads to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit amid tensions

After Putin mentioned that White House officials were trying to interfere, a person with direct knowledge of the conversation said that Trump told to Putin, "Those are stupid people; you shouldn't listen to them, "The New York Times reported Monday".

Trump has said maintaining a strong personal relationship with Putin is in America's interest and has signaled to allies that he trusts his own instincts in dealing with Russia's president. "But the United Kingdom certainly has a lot of things going on". He has been very nice to me.

Labour MP Alison McGovern told HuffPost: "These frankly shocking comments show even more why it's a good thing that Boris Johnson is no longer in his job".

Of the divisions and tensions likely to be in attendance at the Brussels meeting, he conceded that "there are disagreements and different views, and I expect actually also honest and frank discussions during the summit".

Mr. Johnson resigned from his post on Monday.

British Prime Minister Theresa May's spokesman said he hoped Mr Trump would have a positive image of Britain following his visit this week after Mr Trump's remarks on the UK's "turmoil".

The row at the G-7 was followed by Trump's historic meeting with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un.

On another front, Trump has connected the defense issue with trade, criticizing Europe for a $150 billion trade surplus (though it can also be calculated as $100 billion) and trade barriers.

This week's two-day summit, beginning on Wednesday at Nato's new headquarters in the Belgian capital, is expected to be dominated by United States demands for increased spending by other members of the 29-nation alliance. 'I'm confident the UK-US alliance will play a leading role in advancing our shared values of democracy and freedom, ' he said. In comparison the United Kingdom paid 2.14%, but just six of the 29 members spend more than the 2% figure. "'And it means a lot more to you than protecting us because I don't know how much protection we get by protecting you'".

Also, the U.S. president tweeted that "NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS". "On top of this the European Union has a Trade Surplus of US$151 Million with the USA, with big Trade Barriers on USA goods. NO!"

NATO's European allies have spent more on defense for a second consecutive year in 2017, but the majority of them still failed to meet the target of spending two percent of their GDP on defense.

European Council President Donald Tusk has insisted that the USA has no better ally than the EU.

Last month, the United States raised fears of a trade war by slapping tariffs on steel and aluminium from the EU, Canada, Mexico and other U.S. allies.

Evidence also suggests that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 Presidential election, interference that has been confirmed by the USA intelligence community and the Republican-led Senate Intelligence Committee.
