Remarks by President Donald Tusk on EU-NATO cooperation

Trump's strained visit with NATO, meeting with Putin

U.S. President Donald Trump escorts British Prime Minister Theresa May down the White House colonnade after their meeting at the White House in Washington, U.S., January 27, 2017.

The comments will be seen by many as an endorsement of Mr Johnson who is at the centre of speculation of an attempt to remove Mrs May from office as she tries to plough on with a weakened cabinet having also lost her Brexit Secretary David Davis.

This approach to diplomacy with Russian Federation has foreign policy experts anxious, particularly after Russian Federation still stands accused of meddling with the 2016 USA presidential election and being suspected of carrying out a deadly nerve-agent attack in the UK. The EU did strike back with retaliatory tariffs on U.S. goods. United States doesn't have and won't have a better ally than EU.

Trump's comments about the United Kingdom refer to recent chaos in Prime Minister Theresa May's government, which has been thrown into turmoil by a series of high-profile resignations by Brexit-supporting ministers. -NATO meeting ahead of the summit, according to Reuters.

"The main concern is he will spend much of the time berating them on not spending enough on defense" before having "a love fest with Putin, like he did with Chairman Kim", Goldgeier said.

Referring to Monday's planned summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Mr Trump added: "And I have Putin".

Here's the thing, though: The 2 percent to which President Trump is referring in his tweets Monday is not a reflection of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending, nor it is some kind of compulsory due. White House officials are said to be afraid the "Trump baby" protest at Westminster may prompt him to lash out.

"Well, we do have a lot of allies", he told reporters before boarding Marine One.

Backing away from U.S. global responsibilities, shared with other countries, would require not just that Trump use the powers conferred on the presidency.

"I would like to address president Trump directly who for a long time now has been criticising Europe nearly daily", the former Polish prime minister said. "Europe far more than it does the U.S". That is why we have agreed today to strengthen EU-NATO ties in crucially important areas. His good behavior-though hopes in this quarter died long ago-would also help reassure allies before Trump meets with Putin that he will not fall for the Russian leader's blandishments or agree to any grand bargains, perhaps in the Middle East, that would be hostile to core Western interests. Europeans must spend more on defense.

'First of all, America: Appreciate your allies.

So everyone knows what to expect come Wednesday and Thursday, when Trump and his NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison (who thinks the president is hitting it out of the park, of course) will join our global security allies.
