Trump in London for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit amid election race

A very American crisis Why Trump is still NATO’s biggest problem

And he warned he could see France "breaking off" from the allies, after Macron in an interview criticized NATO's leadership and strategy.

Queen Elizabeth II will host a reception for NATO leaders at Buckingham Palace on the first day of the summit and NATO Secretary-General will discuss the main themes of the leaders' meeting at a major public diplomacy event in London, NATO Engages: Innovating the Alliance. We're helping Europe. Europe unites when they go against a common foe. "We can see this as likely the tale of three egos", said Amanda Sloat, a former senior diplomat and a fellow of the Brookings Institution, warning that Trump, Macron and Erdogan were the figures to watch.

"It's an absolute disgrace what they're doing to our country", he stated.

He referenced new tariff escalations being recommended by US trade representative Robert Lighthizer Monday.


Lashing out at Paris for a digital service tax that he said unfairly discriminates against USA tech companies - including Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon - Trump repeated announcements that taxes are set to rise on French products, including cheese, wine and other products, as a measure of new to-be-introduced trade tariffs. "If anyone is going to take advantage of the American companies, it's going to be us".

The president also invoked Turkish president Recep Erdogan, who pushed back earlier against Macron's comments. Johnson will want who to smooth things over and downplay any links to Trump, who is unpopular in the UK. If Trump's refrain about spending is a familiar one, a more dramatic row blew up in recent weeks after Macron despaired of the club's strategic direction, saying it is suffering "brain death". He issued the warning in part by citing increasing uncertainty about the role US would play.

"The Democrats, the radical-left Democrats, the do-nothing Democrats, decided when I'm going to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation - this was set up a year ago - that when I'm going to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, that was the exact time", Trump stated as he left.

"Nato serves a great objective", Trump said, at a joint press appearance with alliance Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg ahead of the allies' summit.
