  • How Trump's turbulent Europe trip affects his Putin meeting

Allied NATO defense spending has actually increased on average 3.1 percent since 2014.

Trump, in his proclamation of the annual event, said the US stands "in solidarity with those who continue to suffer under governments that stifle basic freedoms and deny the opportunity to build a better life".

The US president described himself as a "very stable genius" for securing agreements for extra cash after years of the burden falling on America.

Mr Trump stated his commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, speaking after reports that he had warned leaders that the U.S. could pull out of the alliance if other members failed to increase their contributions.

At a news conference wrapping up the two-day North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Trudeau was pressed to provide more details about the US president's sudden insistence that allies have agreed to spend more - and to do it more quickly.

During a tense summit, the businessman announced his wish that all 29 member nations should increase spending to two per cent immediately, and eventually double that to four per cent of GDP.

"It confirms the goal of 2% by 2024".

Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin were slated to meet over the coming days in Finland. "Ultimately, that'll be going up quite a bit higher than that".

The summit will begin with a tete-a-tete meeting between Putin and Trump at the presidential palace in Helsinki, and then there will be negotiations in the format of a working meal also involving the delegations, followed by a joint press conference where both presidents will make statements and answer questions, according to Ushakov.

"We go into that meeting not looking for so much".

Meanwhile, the USA spends roughly 3.6% of its GDP on defense, as its military budget in 2017 was approximately $618 billion.

Senate Democratic Leader Chuck Schumer (Democrat-New York) said Trump should refuse to meet with Putin until Russian Federation takes steps to prove it won't interfere in future elections.

The call to cancel the summit came after a week in which Democrats have expressed widespread concerns about Trump's ability to sit down and challenge Putin in a one-on-one meeting, which is scheduled for Monday.

He added that the Russians are clearly trying to meddle in the 2018 midterms too. But he did not rule out recognising Rissia's annexation of Crimea.

The president has said he plans to meet with the Russian leader alone.

U.S. Marine Corps Gen. Joseph Dunford, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, met with Gen. Valery Gerasimov, the chief of the Russian military's General Staff, in a manor house owned by the Finnish state in June to exchange views on U.S. -Russia military relations, Syria and global security. The indictment does not allege that Trump campaign associates were involved in the hacking efforts or that any American was knowingly in contact with Russian intelligence officers.

"So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route".
