Europe Braces for Worst from Trump: Security, Trade & Russia on the Agenda

Europe Braces for Worst from Trump: Security, Trade & Russia on the Agenda

It cited as an example Denmark, which has not met the 2 percent goal in recent years but has made important contributions in other ways, including with troop deployments to Afghanistan and by sacrificing significant trade with Russian Federation by complying with sanctions. "There's new sense of urgency, and all allies agreed to redouble their efforts". We all agree that we need more cash in national defense budgets; More modern capabilities; And more contributions to missions and operations.

An official present when Trump made the demand said that "the room was aghast", even though Trump was actually more cordial in private than in his public remarks. "I have great confidence they'll be spending more". "That turning point has always been initiated".

Might a reordering, or even a reduction, of USA forces in Europe be in the cards?

Experts fear the trip could produce a repeat of the dynamics from Trump's last trip overseas, when he admonished Group of Seven allied nations at a summit in Canada before heading to Singapore, where he showered praise on one of America's longest-standing adversaries, North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

Trump has already met with Putin twice as president, including a meeting on the sidelines of a summit in Germany that stretched for more than two hours. "I don't know how much protection we get from protecting you". "And I think we have to talk to Germany about it", he said. They're happy to do it. But NATO diplomats say only two-thirds of the 28 allies, excluding the United States, have a realistic plan to hit that level by then.

- Thursday: London visit: After Brussels, Trump will head to London, where he'll face a citywide "Carnival of Resistance" as well as a giant blimp depicting him as a diaper-wearing infant.

After his meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders, Trump is scheduled to visit London for talks with British Prime Minister Theresa May, days after her Cabinet was hit by two major resignations over the Brexit issue. Instead, a series of events - a black-tie dinner with business leaders, a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May and an audience with Queen Elizabeth II - will happen outside the bustling city, where Mayor Sadiq Khan has been in a verbal battle with Trump.

"I think these countries have to step it up, not over a 10 year period, they have to step it up immediately. I'm very strong on immigration".

Trump also misrepresented Germany's energy picture, asserting coal and nuclear power are gone from the mix. He suggested an accelerated timeline, saying nations would be "spending at a much faster clip".

"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", he said.

The demise of the Soviet Union in 1991 prompted a partial drawdown of USA forces from Europe, but every administration since then has concluded that keeping a US military presence there was important for wider US security, political and economic interests, and as a sign of solidarity with Europe.

Nato's principle of collective defence is enshrined in Article 5 of the Washington Treaty and it was invoked for the first time after the 9/11 terror attacks against the USA in 2001, which is quite a paradox, for the organisation had always apprehended an invasion from the former Soviet Union during the heydays of the Cold War.

"Part of the game theory of an alliance is signaling.to rivals and to your partners that you'll stand up. for your allies", Holland said. Officials said no explicit threat was made. In a gesture that would be scrutinized for its meaning, Trump brushed the shoulders of the French president's pristine suit before one of their photo ops.

As previously reported "facts", the NATO Summit confirmed the Euro-Atlantic aspirations of Ukraine.

After the two-day summit in Brussels, Trump will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday. Europeans say that Mr. Trump's perceptions of the issues at hand are based on skewed data, complaining that the trade surplus of $151 billion that the EU has with the United States only includes goods, thus ignoring the US' $51 billion surplus in services, most notably tech.
