Emmanuel Macron rubbishes Donald Trump's increased Nato spending claim

Before anyone even arrived in Brussels, Belgium for Day One of the NATO Summit, Trump was already tweeting his allies about not putting up enough money for global defense.

"We need our allies to spend two per cent".

Laura Williams, 29 and an officer at Global Justice Manchester, said she was travelling from the northern English city to London for the protest because she was "shocked" May made a decision to invite Trump, "despite the obvious public opposition".

"It is up to President Trump to hold Putin accountable for his actions during the meeting in Helsinki", McCain said in a statement.

Trump did not specify which countries had committed to what, and it remained unclear whether any had changed their plans.

"Some are at 2 percent, others have agreed definitely to go to 2 percent, and some are going back to get the approval - and which they will get - to go to 2 percent", Trump said at his press conference.

After leading allies to believe that the USA might abandon its commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, President Trump reversed course at an impromptu press conference.

"Leading up to 2014 and the Wales conference, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries had been under-investing in their military and declining in their military and defence investments - including, unfortunately, in Canada".

"These revelations add to a body of evidence confirming an extensive plot by Vladimir Putin's government to attack the 2016 election, sow chaos and dissension among the American electorate, and undermine faith in our democracy".

Kauppi called for closer cooperation not only between the United States and Finland, but also between Washington and the European Union and the Nordic region generally: "The world is broader than the transatlantic community, certainly, but the basic link between the US and the EU is extremely important in terms of how the global community takes shape".

"Russia didn't beat Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump did".

He and Martha MacCallum discussed the opposition that many Britons have over Trump's visit. "I think it's very inappropriate".
