Trump Should Cancel Putin Summit Over Indictments, Democrats Say

"We are a country that really believes that winning the war is just the first step and we have to work really hard to win the peace". He then stunned allies by telling them to eventually double the figure to a punishing four percent.

They stated very clearly that Georgia will become a member of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and gave us the additional tools for strengthening our defense capabilities.

Canada was never expected to agree to Trump's timelines for reaching two per cent.

Mueller's investigation was launched in May 2017, with a primary focus on allegations that members of President Donald Trump's 2016 campaign team colluded with Russian interests.

Trump stressed that NATO's budget had been unfair to the United States but now he was sure it would be fair.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) also called for the cancellation of the meeting, saying that Trump "cannot claim to love the USA while meeting with. a man who is overseeing an all-out attack on America's democracy".

U.S. President Donald Trump closed out his chaotic two-day visit to NATO Thursday by declaring victory, claiming that member nations caved to his demands to significantly increase defence spending and reaffirming his commitment to the alliance. Apart from the US, only three North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries hit the two-percent target in 2017-Britain, Greece and Estonia-but four more are expected to clear the threshold this year.

NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison said last week that now 16 of 29 countries are on track to meet that goal.

"I let them know that I was extremely unhappy", he said, but added that the talks had ended on the best of terms: "It all came together at the end".

Woody Johnson, the USA ambassador to the United Kingdom, dismissed the significance of the protests, telling Fox News that one of the reasons the two countries are so close "is because we have the freedoms that we've all fought for".

A source briefed on Mr Trump's meeting with fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation nations told the New York Times the President had said that if the other countries did not meet the target by January, the USA "would go it alone".

In an apparent swipe at Trump, he added: "Sometimes the corridors, comments and tweets take on more importance than what is negotiated, said or endorsed by heads of state".

President Donald Trump's displeasure with the U.S.'s military allies over their relatively low defense spending is no secret. Also Thursday, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg insisted that Georgia will one day join the world's biggest security alliance, despite separatist ambitions in parts of the former Soviet republic.

John McCain, R-Arizona, said Mr. Trump should cancel the meeting if he will not hold Putin accountable.

At the summit working dinner on Wednesday, Theresa May warned Mr Trump not to ignore the "malign behaviour" of Russian Federation when he meets President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki. "So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route".
