Money has started pouring into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, says Donald Trump

Money has started pouring into North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, says Donald Trump

Trump said the US would not "forsake the friends" who came to America's aid after the deadly terrorist attacks. It's been a thorn in the side of U.S. -NATO relations for decades, but Trump brought new urgency to the debate after questioning the value of the alliance and openly praising NATO's arch geopolitical foe, Russia, during his presidential campaign.

"Twenty-three of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying for their defence", Trump said, standing by a piece of the wreckage of the Twin Towers.

Trump said that even if they met the commitment they made in 2014 to allocate two percent of GDP to defence, it would still not be enough to meet the challenges North Atlantic Treaty Organisation faces. Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright tweeted that the USA cannot "add an asterisk" to Article 5.

While Trump addressed the threat of terrorism, he refused to go hard on Russian Federation to allay allies' fears, in another swing-and-miss.

Markovic turns to Trump, naturally, and smiles hesitantly but the United States president does not look at him. In what may have been an attempt at Trump-friendly sloganeering, Stoltenberg summed up Article 5 by declaring, gamely, "All for one, and one for all!" "If NATO countries made their full and complete contributions, it would be even stronger than it is today, especially from the threat of terrorism", he further said.

But with the discovery of new evidence, Jones is now facing fresh charges, which means she may have to spend more time in jail. She was also sentenced to 60 years for gravely injuring 4-week-old Rolando Santos with a blood thinner in 1982.

The address created one of several awkward moments, as several leaders including Macron and German Chancellor Angela Merkel could be seen grimacing and rolling their eyes.

"Getting ready to engage G7 leaders on many issues including economic growth, terrorism, and security", Trump wrote on Twitter.

Milan Knezevic, leader of Montenegro's opposition and anti-Nato Democratic People's Party, said by phone that Trump's behavior "is clear proof that there's no such thing as equality in Nato", showing that the country is just a "smudge" on the alliance's map.

Critics of President Trump say that, given his inexperience and propensity for outlandish speech and behavior, he is being graded "on a massive curve" on his first foreign trip. In a written statement, Trump called the alleged leaks "deeply troubling" and said he was asking the Justice Department and other agencies to review the matter.

After meeting Trump on Thursday in Brussels, Tusk told a news conference: "It was clear for both of us that the European Union at 27 is more united after Brexit than before Brexit".
