Trump jabs Italian PM Gentiloni on meeting financial North Atlantic Treaty Organisation obligation

He offered three priorities: dealing better with mass migration by strengthening the European compact on the issue; stabilizing countries such as Libya where an increased effort is required; and fighting terrorism and Daesh, another name for Isis.

Gentiloni's comments seemed to build on remarks he made earlier Thursday, when he described the need for Italian and US action in Libya as "absolutely crucial". Getting Trump on board with supporting Libya's unity government and the United Nations -led peace process would be a major achievement for Gentiloni. "It shouldn't have been signed", Trump said.

"Iran has not lived up to the spirit of the agreement, and they have to do that", he said. "I can tell you that".

President Donald Trump says he looks "very much forward to meeting the Pope" when he travels to Italy next month. He will make a stop at the summit of leaders of the Group of Seven, which will be held in Sicily.

On the health bill, a major Trump campaign promise, Ryan convinced Trump to pull the bill last month.

Trump was meeting with Gentiloni as news of the incident broke.

The trip to Europe is to be Trump's first foreign trip as president.

The turnabout mirrored Trump's changing opinion of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Early this month, the USA president told the Financial Times newspaper he thought the European Union was "getting their act together" - though he maintained Brexit would be "really, really good" for the Union and for Britain.

It said that "the values of brotherhood and solidarity which Luciano Pavarotti expressed throughout the course of his artistic career are entirely incompatible with the worldview offered by the candidate Donald Trump".

Italy now spends a little over 1 percent of its GDP on the military alliance.

"We know that this will be a gradual process. It has already begun", he said. And in January, he declared that Brexit "is going to end up being a great thing". He avoided however new commitments on Libya and insisted on partners paying their dues for the common defense under North Atlantic Treaty Organisation agreements, that is on meeting the target of military spending reaching 2% of Gdp. It would also be good policy for the United States.
