  • Trump brings 'new sense of urgency' to NATO: Stoltenberg

Trump has several times assailed Germany for not spending a large enough proportion of its gross domestic product on defence.

Trump's United Kingdom visit has been in the works since early in his presidency but was repeatedly delayed because of the virulent opposition Trump has sparked there.

"Some are at 2 percent, others have agreed definitely to go to 2 percent, and some are going back to get the approval - and which they will get - to go to 2 percent", Trump said at his press conference. "I'm very consistent. I'm a very stable genius". "Everyone has agreed to substantially up their commitment".

"People have stepped up today like they've never stepped up before".

"We think President Trump is basically right that the foundation of a successful alliance is fair contributions by all parties", he told reporters in Brussels. "We will redouble out efforts it shows that the clear message from President Trump is having an impact". "The commitment was at 2 percent".

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte said he had made no decision to increase defense spending.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders will discuss the alliance's ties with Georgia and Ukraine.

Trump has dismissed the assessment of his own intelligence agencies that Russian Federation tried to meddle in the 2016 presidential election that brought him to power.

Canada has "significant concerns" with the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project, which would bring gas from Russian Federation to the Baltic coast of Germany, Foreign Affairs Minister Chrystia Freeland said Wednesday.

But on Thursday, Trump came ready to tussle.

The Trump administration did not immediately respond to Newsweek's request for comment.

Trump said the allies "made a tremendous amount of progress" and "they really stepped up their commitment and stepped it up like they never have before". The president said Thursday that he views Putin not as a friend or an enemy but as a "competitor" and repeated his desire for better relations with the Kremlin.

"Italy has inherited spending commitments that we haven't changed".

"I don't understand why Germany would be so in favor of supporting that particular supply source instead of diversifying", said Corker, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

The demands sent "everyone into a tailspin", according to a third diplomat briefed on the morning's events.

The German Chancellor Angela Merkel said: "We presented the current situation".

She said that the meeting was a continuation of what has been discussed for months.

French President Emmanuel Macron also said that leaders agreed to live up to their existing spending goals. "We committed ourselves to spending a bit more". Trump supporters are questioning the organizations tactics and funding.

"He was in a good mood, he said Europe was a continent he appreciated", Luxembourg's Prime Minister Xavier Bettel told reporters. Only eight countries expect to meet the target in 2018, he said.
