Mr Schäuble said: "The US president has a different way of communicating, which is unusual to me, and I do not like it".

Trump claimed member nations had agreed to significantly boost their defense budgets and reaffirmed - after days of griping that the USA was being taken advantage of by its allies - that the US remains faithful to the accord.

After leading allies to believe that the US might abandon its commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, President Trump reversed course at an impromptu press conference.

"And yet, he came into the news conference and declared victory", Bays said.

Paul A. Kramer, a Vanderbilt University historian who specializes in the politics of inequality in the United States, said Trump's most recent comments were an intentional attempt to ally himself and his base in the United States with the far-right nationalist movements in Europe.

But I would also encourage the president to exercise caution with Russian Federation - which has proven to be a hostile nation to the United States and our Western allies. "Every single USA president has been pushing the point of extra spending since Reagan and they have all been played I am not going to be".

"That's what makes our country unbelievable and great", Lieu said.

'They'd better watch themselves because you are changing culture you're changing a lot of things, ' Trump said.

He added: "It confirms the goal of 2% by 2024. I actually told Theresa May how to do it but she didn't agree, she didn't listen to me".

The Yankees also need an added rotation piece if they wish to bolster their chances at a World Series run come October. Now in a contract year, the 26-year-old Machado is hitting.313 with 23 homers and 64 RBI on the season.

He went on: "I think what has happened to Europe is a shame".

"The US were not treated fairly, but now we are". During the 2016 presidential campaign, he drew global condemnation for a call to ban Muslim immigration to the U.S. Since entering the White House, he has enacted travel restrictions for citizens from some Muslim-majority countries, curtailed refugee admissions to the U.S. and called for "extreme vetting" of those entering the U.S.

"I can only sum up what's the result: a clear commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation by all and also a clear willingness by all to provide a contribution on their own in the face of a changed security situation".

President Trump is scheduled to meet with President Putin Monday, July 16 in Helsinki, Finland.

Trump continued his now familiar verbal attacks, saying too many USA presidents had failed to get Europeans to spend more on defense and that he wanted immediate results.

Trump had taken an aggressive tone during the summit, questioning the value of an alliance that has defined decades of American foreign policy, torching an ally and proposing a massive increase in European defense spending.

At Thursday's press conference, he repeated an incorrect claim that the USA "pays for 70 to 90% of NATO". Says Stoltenberg: "We have agreed that we're committed to the pledge increasing defence spending to 2 percent".

A majority also described Trump as "dangerous".
