"What good is NATO?" Trump criticizes Germany and other allies at summit

German Prime Minister Merkel hit back immediately, not only denying Trump's contention but suggesting that his comfortable upbringing in the USA gave him no standing to spout off on the world stage about Germany. And it came just days before Trump planned to sit down with Putin in Finland at the conclusion of what has become a contentious European trip.
In a startling public outburst against one of Europe's main military powers, Trump told NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg that Germany was wrong to support a new $11 billion Baltic Sea pipeline to import Russian gas while being slow to meet targets for NATO spending to protect against Russia. Whereas the United States in actual numbers is paying 4.2% of a much larger GDP. "This has been going on for decades, for decades, it's disproportionate and not fair to the taxpayers of the United States".
Stoltenberg agreed there should be more done to prompt allies to invest more in their defense. "His behavior this morning is another profoundly disturbing signal that the President is more loyal to President Putin than to our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies". That is more than current US spending as a proportion of GDP - and Pentagon budgets maintain bases and deploy fleets around the world, something that shouldn't be expected from Estonia or Spain.
In an interview on "Wolf" with CNN's Wolf Blitzer on Wednesday, Menendez, who is the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, brought up his concerns about the upcoming summit and how he views the President's attitude towards it. "I've been complaining about this from the time I got in". "And gas from Russian Federation to Germany is where the allies disagree".
"But how can you be together when you're getting energy from the group you want protection from?" the president asked.
"A lot of porcelain's being broken at the moment and I think, unfortunately, it will take a while until things that have been broken are fixed again", said Sven Halldorn, 52.
Mary Civiello, an executive communications coach and expert on body language, told The Washington Post that Kelly's expression during Trump's comments seemed to suggest "he wants to be anywhere but where he is". "And I think that leaders are also looking forward to your thoughts about the meeting with President Putin later on".
US President Donald Trump insisted on Wednesday that he gets on well with Chancellor Angela Merkel, despite earlier savaging Germany's trade and defence policies. "To me, this is nearly like propaganda, it really tells you how far out we're getting here and what sort of an influence that Trump is able to exert".
The flak Sterling receives doesn't bother him as much anymore, in his own words, the youngster focussing on his duties instead. Just two goals in 42 appearances, which came against Lithuania and Estonia, isn't anything to call home about.
