The top awkward body language moments from Trump's first trip abroad

The top awkward body language moments from Trump's first trip abroad

They wanted to know not just how much Trump resents weak European defense budgets - a complaint Europeans have heard from a long line of USA administrations (President Obama called them "free-riders") - but "when is [Trump] going to start his engine and get to work" on the issues on the transatlantic agenda, Ms. Smith says. "A future that does honor to God". "Man!" Trump said to Egyptian President Abdel Fattah el-Sisi when they met in Saudi Arabia on Sunday, a friendly nod to a Mideast strongman who the United States largely snubbed during the Obama administration. "He's a friend of mine and he means it".

Trump himself called the trip a "home run", and aides agreed, delighted over the lack of major gaffes and their ability to keep Trump largely on script and far away from reporters.

Trump told the national leaders at the Brussels summit this week that members must "finally contribute their fair share and meet their financial obligations".

Trump ended his nine-day trip with a speech to USA troops in Sicily, where he recounted his visits to Saudi Arabia, Israel, Belgium and Italy and his work to counter terrorism.

Kushner's Russian Federation ties are questioned
Trump officials were preparing to establish a "war room" to address the issue that has begun to dominate his young presidency. Kushner in March said he was ready to testify about his Russian Federation meetings to the Senate Intelligence Committee.

Trump used his trip to promote "America First" policies, promoting $110 billion worth of arms sales to Saudi Arabia and telling G-7 allies that the United States needs a more level playing field on trade.

NATO's collective agreement in 2014 instructed its 28 member countries to spend at least 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense spending by 2024, according to Politifact.

In Trump's telling of the trip, recounted on Saturday to a friendly crowd of U.S. troops in Sicily, he made strong, new friends around the world and united global leaders against terrorism with a new sense of resolve following the May 22 bombing attack in Manchester. On Friday, the Washington Post reported that Trump's son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner spoke with Russia's ambassador to the US about setting up secret communications with Moscow. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, White House adviser Jared Kushner and Kushner's wife, Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter, have urged the president to stay in the deal.

Current NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg defended Trump after the meeting, telling reporters that he had received a "clear message" from the US president that "the United States of America is committed to NATO and it's not possible to be committed to NATO without being committed to Article 5 and our collective defence clause". "Money is beginning to pour in -NATO will be much stronger", Trump tweeted from Sicily where he is attending a Group of Seven meeting.

"The U.S.is now paying much more than any other nation and that is not fair to the United States or the United States taxpayer".

Regarding the earlier North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels, he said that "money is actually starting to pour into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation from countries that would not have been doing what they're doing now had I not been elected".

His May 9 firing of former FBI Director James Comey has raised concerns about whether he was trying to squelch a federal probe into his campaign's ties with Russian Federation previous year.

Details of exactly how this "outside in" approach would work are TBD but if it succeeds it would be a real foreign policy triumph for Trump.

The search for a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director continues.

The Washington Post, The New York Times, Reuters, and other media outlets reported that Trump is considering creating a so-called "war room" to deal with the growing number of questions about his presidential campaign and Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election.
