Donald Trump reached new heights in his isolationist policy this week when he lied about - and insulted - fellow members of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, a military alliance established in 1949. But the other members were rattled enough to convene an emergency meeting on the spending issue.

According to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation figures, only five of 29 allies met their defense spending targets this year: Estonia, Greece, Latvia, the United Kingdom and the U.S.

"I didn't criticise the PM", Trump said at a press conference at the prime minister's official retreat in Chequers on Friday afternoon.

In the conference he announced that he got everything that he wanted and other countries will be increasing their North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending.

However, the US President suggested he wanted the target to rise to 4% of GDP.

She then added: "Donald Trump, even the face of evidence, time and time again, he is on the side of Putin".

Trump himself did not give specific details on when his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies would fulfill the U.S. demands and to what amount.

They are the most recent charges in the special counsel probe that already has resulted in guilty pleas from three of Trump's campaign aides.

"(The) 2 per cent (figure) was a range, a goal, now it's a commitment, it was like this amorphous number out there and now it's a real commitment", he said.

What McConnell reportedly said about Trump's potential Supreme Court nominees
President Donald Trump: "Well, it's still-let's say it's the four people, but-and they're excellent, every one". Judge Brett Kavanaugh looked to have the inside track within the White House last week but may have hit a snag.

"For some reason President Trump thinks that if he gets in the room with him, maybe he can warm Putin up and Putin will turn out to be a good guy - he's not".

In a series of tweets at the time, Trump said that "throughout my life, my two greatest assets have been mental stability and being, like, really smart".

"Everyone's agreed to substantially up their commitments, they've agreed to up it to levels that they have never thought of before".

Mr Trump pumps his fist during his arrival in Regent's Park, London, to spend the night at the residence of the US Ambassador.

Trump appeared to be referring to a deal between Germany and Russian Federation that would bring gas directly from Russian Federation to northern Germany.

"We had a fundamental discussion with all the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members because of the question that arose this morning - what do we have to do to improve our defense", Merkel said. Trump has faced pressure from lawmakers in both parties to raise the issue of Russian meddling in the 2016 election during the meeting with Putin. But he did not rule out recognising Rissia's annexation of Crimea. The president has said he plans to meet with the Russian leader alone.

From Brussels, he flew to Britain where the government is in crisis over Brexit and where tensions with Russian Federation have spiked after London blamed Moscow for the death this month of a British woman from contact with the Novichok nerve agent.

"President Trump should absolutely cancel this meeting with Putin", Mr. Perez said. The day after the 2016 vote - not the day before - he predicted the European Union would collapse because of Britain's withdrawal. "So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route".
