Chris Wallace Announces Exclusive Interview With Vladimir Putin Monday After Trump Summit

Macron said he had just agreed a 2019 budget with parliament so changing it was unrealistic - a point Trump later said he had accepted though he still expected all members to hit the 2 percent target in the next years, and then possibly double that. But even before Air Force One completed its 50-minute flight across the English Channel to the next stop on his European tour, Trump's claims of accomplishment were challenged by the same allies he claimed had caved.

Stoltenberg acknowledged that Trump had expressed himself in "very direct language" but insisted that away from the fiery rhetoric the allies all agree on fundamental issues: the need to boost NATO's resilience, fight terror and share the cost of defence more equally.

After the Group of Seven meeting in Quebec, where Mr. Trump left the conference without signing the statement that his advisers had endorsed, Mr. Trump attacked Mr. Trudeau as "weak" and "dishonest".

Spanish Prime Minister Pedro Sanchez and Belgium Prime Minister Charles Michel were also singled out by Trump for undershooting on their spending targets when U.S. taxpayers, funding a defence budget worth about 3.6 percent of their national income, foot much of NATO's bills. He added: "The people have stepped up today" as they never have before. "I don't. I'm very consistent", Trump said. "They're going to up it at levels they've never thought of before".

"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", the president said. Trump says Germany is "totally controlled" by Russian Federation. "It confirms the goal of 2 percent by 2024".

That 2024 goal had been set in 2014. But I said, ultimately we should be - in years in advance, we should be at 4 percent. "That turning point has always been initiated".

"The United States does not support pipelines such as Nord Stream 2 and a multi-line Turk Stream that will only increase reliance on a single source of supply", Perry told reporters. But Obama's dire warning came from a polar-opposite view of Trump's - that Brexit itself would be the impediment.

"The clear message from President Trump is having an impact", he said. A letter from Kim that Trump tweeted out Thursday heralded the "start of a meaningful journey" between the two nations, but made no mention of denuclearization. He also reportedly said that if the accelerated target - which was originally agreed for 2024 - is not honored the U.S. would "do our own thing", sources told the New York Times and Washington Post. Good morning to you both.

Trump, earlier this week, suggested that his meeting with Putin could be the "easiest" stop on his European tour.

I mean, the president now moving on to London and then to a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki - a meeting that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries are obviously going to be looking at and watching closely.

The US Senate voted almost unanimously on Thursday (15 June) for legislation to impose new sanctions on Russian Federation and force President Donald Trump to get Congress' approval before easing any existing sanctions on Russian Federation.

"We had a very intense summit", said Merkel.

His diplomatic team argues the meeting in itself should be seen as notable achievement, so look for more grand proclamations next week.

And the president's declaration was also directly contradicted by one of his closest personal allies, French President Emanuel Macron. "She wanted to go a different route", he told the paper.
