Majority of Americans say Trump ‘not tough enough’ on Russian Federation

The NATO communique says that two-thirds of countries have plans to meet the spending target by 2024, and that, "all Allies have started to increase the amount they spend on defence in real terms".

Despite the majority belief that Trump has not been tough enough on Moscow, 59 percent of American voters believe that meeting with Putin is the right thing to do, compared to 33 percent who said Trump should not sit down with the Russian leader.

Trump added, "All NATO Nations must meet their 2% commitment, and that must ultimately go to 4%!"

Trump did not directly answer questions about whether he had threatened to take the USA out of the alliance, saying he "told people I'd be very unhappy if they didn't up their commitments very substantially".

Trump blazed into the summit yesterday by demanding that allies reach their commitment to increase spending to two per cent of GDP "immediately" - instead of by 2024 as previously agreed.

As the United Kingdom grapples with its own future in the European Union, I hope that President Trump's visit will help to solidify the long friendship between our two great countries.

Not only did Trump demand on Twitter on Thursday that countries meet the 2% level by this year, not 2024, but he also said all countries should eventually hit 4%, which is more than even the USA now spends. The US is paying for Europe's protection, then loses billions on Trade.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said this is not a formal proposal and that Trump had merely "suggested" this increase.

Of the 29-member alliance, only the UK, Poland, Estonia and debt-ridden Greece met the benchmark in 2017.

Only three North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members now meet the 2 percent target, while five are expected to do so this year. Now, never more vividly apparent than in his behavior Wednesday, President Donald Trump seems perfectly inclined to dismantle it, if that serves his objective.

At the press conference on Thursday, a Croatian reporter dared ask if Trump would change his mind once he leaves Brussels for London. Many have already settled their 2019 budgets and the sums involved are huge - even if they wanted to, many would struggle to make useful purchases.

He added that Trump makes a fair point in warning that Germany relies too heavily on Russian Federation for energy, recalling that Putin has used his control of gas supplies as a weapon against Ukraine. Trump claimed victory after bitterly criticizing key allies, notably Germany, for failing to pay their way at one of the most fractious summits in Nato's 70-year history.

"The fact is that we have a commitment to increase defense spending. And I know that's valued very highly over here and people can disagree strongly and still go out to dinner".

Hutchison isn't the only Trump emissary whose mission is, at times, to "calm the waters" after he stirs them, said Francis, the Dallas businessman.
