Behind President Trump's claim of new funding from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members

But on day two, he said "frankly, maybe everybody is going to have a good relationship with Russian Federation, so there will be a lot less problem with the pipeline".

During a meeting with Georgia and Ukraine - two nations that hope to join NATO - Trump turned conversation to his spending concerns, which caused the secretary general to call an emergency budget meeting, according to The New York Times.

As Europe's biggest natural gas consumer, Germany relies on Russian Federation for roughly half of its gas imports, which account for 20 percent of its current energy mix, according to London-based Marex Spectron group. Can they make it for so many people?

"The President likes and respects Prime Minister May very much". Hence the question: If Trump does not get his way and the allies hold to their previous schedule of defense commitments, what does he do? After meeting with May, a scheduled joint news conference was sure to be dominated by the fallout from the interview before he visits Queen Elizabeth II at Windsor Castle.

Shortly after Trump's comments were posted by The Sun, White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted her boss holds his United Kingdom counterpart May in high esteem.

Officials at the meeting said Trump shocked many present and broke with diplomatic protocol by addressing German Chancellor Angela Merkel by her first name, telling her: "Angela, you need to do something about this". "But I'm going to a pretty hot spot right now - right? - with a lot of resignations".

What we're seeing, I suspect, is a return to atavistic conservative attitudes - but combined with a great steaming pile of modern right-wing nuttery.

He insisted it had been a "very good" summit because of the frank and open discussion it had hosted. "It's very detailed", Macron said.

Trump says North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have agreed to increase defence spending
The President reportedly threatened to quit North Atlantic Treaty Organisation if his increased spending demands were not met. Trump tweeted this morning before the second day of talks.

There, while on board Air Force 1, he used his Twitter feed to rescind his support of a joint communique and slam Trudeau personally after hearing the prime minister repeat Canada's insistence it would defend itself from USA aggression on trade.

The president also warned that Britain and Europe was "losing its culture" due to mass migration.

He added: "I can you tell you that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation now is a really a fine-tuned machine. Cities in America all suffered terror attacks", Khan told British broadcaster Sky News. The leaders, including Trump, had signed on to a statement that highlighted agreement on a plan to improve the readiness and mobility of the armed forces across the Continent, and they agreed on tough language aimed at Moscow. Trump has a tendency to talk to and about people like they wholeheartedly agree with him, which made for some awkward moments for the French prez.

Demonstrators protest next to the specially erected fence surrounding the US ambassador's residence, Winfield House, where President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are staying in London on July 12.

Carrying placards reading "Dump Trump", and "Can't comb over sexism", joyous crowds blew whistles before starting from Portland Place heading toward Oxford Circus.

Trump was greeted at the palace by May, whose government has been rocked by resignations from ongoing tumult over Brexit. All was serene, however, during a lavish evening welcome ceremony at Blenheim Palace.

The mood was far less jovial in Belgium earlier in the day.

Trump tweets: "Why are their (sic) only 5 out of 29 countries that have met their commitment?"
