Trump says Putin may be easiest meeting of European trip

As Winston Churchill wisely once said, "There is at least one thing worse than fighting with allies - and that is to fight without them". But Trump countered by saying the arrangement puts the United States at a disadvantage, pointing to the measly share of gross domestic product (GDP) that most members spend on defense.
President Donald Trump waves as he walks off after speaking with reporters before boarding Marine One on the South Lawn of the White House, Tuesday, July 10, 2018, in Washington. "I have always liked him", he said, adding he had not spoken with Prime Minister May since Johnson quit.
In between, he will be in Britain, with a black tie dinner hosted by May on Thursday and a working visit with the prime minister on Friday.
Stoltenberg praised Trump for spurring the allies into action.
"I don't believe it's beyond the capacity of European Union and United Kingdom to work out what will be very hard issues", he said.
President Trump suggested such member states should reimburse the USA for being delinquent on their obligations for years.
Tusk also urged the Europeans to increase spending as they had promised. She has not helped her image by endlessly kicking the can down the road and delaying decisions.
Mr Trump has been a strong supporter of Brexit and Britain offering a quick free trade deal.
"I have the United Kingdom, which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin", Trump said. "He is willing to be extreme and seek the upper hand, especially with people that he perceives to be polite and well-mannered".
As with many Trump crusades, there's truth to his claims-but more to the story. Separately, the US envoy said she's concerned that Russian Federation is trying to "flip" Turkey and other American allies to its column.
The leaders are also likely to discuss New START, under which both nations cut their deployed strategic nuclear warheads to no more than 1,550, the lowest level in decades.
Member states are bracing themselves for more from the president in person.
But there was one bright spot from Belgium defeat
Belgium's 1-0 win sent it into the side of the bracket containing four World Cup winners and Cristiano Ronaldo's Portugal. Former England defender Martin Keown told BBC Sport: "I'd have him in the team because of the balance he has".
Smith pointed out that President Trump has already abrogated his responsibility as head of state by failing to impose adequate sanctions, leaving matters to Congress.
Trump is demanding an increased commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and has hinted at a willingness to walk away from the table. "Different views are normal among friends and allies, but I am confident that we will agree on the fundamentals".
"While these countries have been increasing their contributions since I took office, they must do much more", he wrote on Twitter.
As he departed the White House, Trump offered a rebuttal.
"Well, we do have a lot of allies but we can not be taken advantage of, we are being taken advantage of by the European Union", he said.
He also tweeted, "NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS". The NATO chief said that the Europeans and Canada are projected to spend around US$266 billion more on defence by 2024.
