President Trump Reportedly Threatened to Pull the U.S. Out of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation

Trump: "Yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy at what was happening and they have substantially upped their commitment". "We made a tremendous amount of progress today", he told reporters.

Trudeau said he did agree to uphold Canada's commitment to the 2014 Wales NATO summit pledge on defence investment, but took pains to point out the declaration technically states NATO allies would merely "aim to move towards" the two per cent guideline within a decade. It's very detailed", he said adding, "It confirms the goal of 2 percent by 2024.

U.S. President Donald Trump is claiming a victory, saying he's gotten NATO's members to spend two per cent of their GDP on defence by 2024.

At the same breakfast (and on several other occasions later in the day), Trump blasted German Chancellor Angela Merkel for an energy deal her country has with Russian Federation, saying they are "totally controlled by Russian Federation", and a "captive" of the country. Trump has several times assailed Germany for not spending a large enough proportion of its gross domestic product on defense.

The issue dominated the president's public remarks after he arrived in Brussels on Tuesday, striking fear among European officials that the president would question the US' role in the alliance. I don't. I'm very consistent.

In response, Lindsay Koshgarian, program director for the National Priorities Project which tracks Pentagon spending and its social implications, said that European leaders-and the people they represent-should be very wary about Trump's demand to increase military expenditures.

"NATO is not a stock exchange where you can buy security".

Mr Trump said he would be discussing the civil war in Syria, the conflict in Ukraine, as well as allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 United States election.

Trump later called the meeting a "success". So threatening the integrity of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation plays very well into the hands of Russia's President Vladimir Putin, with whom Trump will meet on Monday.

In the UK, Trump will spend time with the Queen and the Prime Minister before flying to Scotland to spend the weekend at his golf resort.

"We are not going to finance it for them but we will make sure that they are able to get payments and various other things so they can buy - because the United States makes by far the best military equipment in the world: the best jets, the best missiles, the best guns, the best everything".

He complained the United States "pays tens of Billions of Dollars too much to subsidise Europe" and demanded that member nations reach their goal to spend 2 per cent of GDP on defence, which "must ultimately go to 4%!"

The US president said he would be discussing Syria, the Middle East, Ukraine and nuclear proliferation.

Earlier Thursday, he repeated his complaint that the United States carries a trade deficit with the European Union even as those countries rely on US aid to pay for their defense.

"It all came together at the end", Mr Trump said. "I made clear that we are on this path", she said, a day after having to challenge Trump's suggestion German imports of Russian gas meant that her country was "totally controlled by Russia".

"The US were not treated fairly, but now we are".

At the end of the first session of a two-day summit, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said the aim first was to reach 2 percent, but moments later Trump tweeted that allies were undercutting the U.S. on trade and needed to immediately boost spending.
