European Council President Donald Tusk addresses a news conference during an European Union leaders summit in Brussels, Belgium, June 29, 2018.

Some diplomats fear that Trump will threaten to pull troops out of Europe without more spending on defense, despite USA denials. "Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all".

"Dear President Trump: America does not have, and will not have a better ally than Europe", said Tusk, who chairs summits of European Union leaders.

Tusk too urged the Europeans to increase spending as they have promised, but said: "Dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don't have all that many". "Today, Europeans (collectively) spend on defense many times more than Russian Federation, and as much as China".

"I think that getting along with Russian Federation, getting along with China, getting along with others is a good thing, not a bad thing", he said. "Very Unfair!" he said in a second message.

"Getting ready to leave for Europe". In the past few weeks, Trump has sent sharply worded letters to the leaders of several European countries, including Germany, Italy and Norway, and also to Canada, warning that the USA was losing patience.

Unwavering support for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has been a basic tenet of US foreign policy since the alliance was founded in 1949, but as Trump's emerging trade tariff war with Europe shows, the president has no qualms about upending conventional thinking on major worldwide issues. "We lost $151 billion previous year on trade", the president told reporters. "Charge us big Tariffs (& Barriers)!" the President tweeted on Tuesday before six in the morning. "Well that's up to the people", Trump said.

European Union and US government data put the USA trade deficit with the European Union at around $100 billion, including services such as finance, where the United States has a surplus. "You are not behaving like a leader in the world, and we need you to do differently, to do better'".
