Trump Still Distorting NATO Spending

  • Look out here comes the Trump Doctrine

But with the president in attendance, Bremmer argued, it's bound to end in animus, just like the recent G-7 meeting.

After that comes a visit to Finland and another high-profile summit on Monday-with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump, however, has taken this a step further by asserting that the Europeans are freeloaders taking advantage of American generosity. "We pay far too much and they pay far too little", he said later on the South Lawn.

"Although the Atlantic alliance has weathered many crises over its lifetime, I now am concerned that the alliance will not survive Donald Trump", said Elizabeth Sherwood-Randall, who served as senior director for European affairs on the National Security Council during President Barack Obama's first term.

"Frankly Putin might be easiest of them all".

"There's some concern that the optics could be quite problematic", Kupchan says of this week's Europe trip, based on what happened in Canada and Singapore.

At a time when Russian Federation is an global pariah because of its invasions of neighbors like Georgia and Ukraine, the president of the United States has repeatedly denigrated the country's historical allies in Europe while expressing hope that relations with Russian Federation will become closer.

Sen. Casey Comes Out Against Trump Nominee Before Pick is Announced
Relishing the suspense, Trump insisted he still hadn't locked down his decision, which he wants to keep under wraps until a 9 p.m. During her nomination hearing before the Senate Judiciary Committee , Barrett was questioned about her religious beliefs.

She said: "We have a tight relationship with our allies in the European Union, yet this government is tearing us away from them just as Trump is making a mockery of our so-called special relationship".

President Trump suggested such member states should reimburse the USA for being delinquent on their obligations for years.

And he told supporters at a rally in Montana last week that he had told German leader Angela Merkel, "We're protecting you, and it means a lot more to you. because I don't know how much protection we get by protecting you".

"We lost $151 billion a year ago on trade", the president told reporters.

And while she noted the "emphasis on burden-sharing", Hutchison focused on the fact that "every one of our allies - 100% - are increasing defense spending" and noted that U.S. allies are "on track to make the 2% pledge" regarding defense spending as a proportion of GDP. We will work it out and all countries will be happy.

U.S. Senator Bob Corker of Tennessee, a Republican who chairs the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he hoped Trump avoided a repeat of his G7 summit in Quebec City, when his demands on reducing trade surpluses with the United States prompted a bitter debate with allies.

The president has lashed out at countries that fall short. "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.
