Trump Muses About Future Friendship With Putin: He 'Is Not My Enemy'

Trump Muses About Future Friendship With Putin: He 'Is Not My Enemy'

After the summit and a trip to Brexit-rattled Britain, Trump meets another strongman: Russian president Vladimir Putin.

"He better know the right Russian psyche", said Senate Appropriations Chairman Richard C. Shelby. The meeting with the Russian president will arguably be the most attention-grabbing leg of Trump's European tour.

Diplomats were already anxious about the summit ahead of time, not least because of an abrasive G7 meeting last month, when Mr Trump renounced a summit communique that had previously been jointly agreed.

"I think once the trend started changing in 2014, that created momentum even before he became president", says American University's Martin.

"I think he has to expect they're going to deny, deny everything", the South Dakotan said. He said Tuesday (July 10) that meeting Putin "may be the easiest of all" his meetings. During brief remarks to reporters, he mostly praised Trump's approach.

"It's got to be more than a photo op". The U.S.is paying for Europe's protection, then loses billions on Trade.

The unexpected demand from Trump during a closed-door meeting of heads of state laid down a new, virtually unachievable marker for a peacetime military spending in an alliance already struggling to meet current defense spending commitments. He is a great diplomat and a great representative for us having been ambassador to. "Dear America, appreciate your allies-after all, you don't have that many". We want to keep our journalism open and accessible and be able to keep providing you with news and analyses from the frontlines of Israel, the Middle East and the Jewish World.

"I just came from the region and people are genuinely concerned about how reliable we are as a partner", said retiring Foreign Relations Chairman Bob Corker of Tennessee. "And when you have that occurring, especially with Russia's activities, yeah, it undermines our alliance".

After raising the threat of the USA leaving NATO, Trump said on Thursday that there are no problems, adding that America's allies had pledged to increase defense spending commitments "very substantially".

German Chancellor Angela Merkel told reporters in Brussels that "there was a clear commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation by all".

Amid the tumult, British Prime Minister Theresa May sounded a call for solidarity among the allies, saying, "As we engage Russian Federation we must do so from a position of unity and strength - holding out hope for a better future, but also clear and unwavering on where Russian Federation needs to change its behavior for this to become a reality".

Trump also reiterated his criticisms of Germany - which he said earlier this week was "totally controlled by Russia" because of a deal for a natural gas pipeline. He also said the other leaders had thanked him for raising the issue of how to support NATO's operations.
