Trump pushes around NATO; lecture seen as unsettling alliance

Like other USA allies, Japan has wondered just what Trump's "America First" doctrine would mean for its security guarantees, especially since Trump spent the campaign beating up Japan for taking advantage of America on trade.

If NATO allies were nervous about the United States' commitment to Europe's security before, they must be fuming now.

"We agreed on many areas, first and foremost on counterterrorism", Tusk said after the one-hour meeting.

"We remember and mourn those almost 3,000 innocent people who were brutally murdered by terrorists on September 11th, 2001", he said.

President Trump has ordered the Justice Department to investigate the source of those leaks. However, EU officials believe he has, since taking office, come to a greater appreciation of the value of European integration to US interests.

The main aim of the Group of Seven summit in Taormina concerning migrants is to maintain a unity of intent, European Council President Donald Tusk told a press conference before the start of the meeting Friday.

President Trump is weighing changes to USA sanctions against Russia, National Economic Council Director Gary Cohn said Wednesday.

No Nato leaders were seen approaching Trump to speak with him on his way out from the photo shoot.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders will hold a working dinner Thursday night. Trump greeted Macron at the door with a handshake and a hearty "How are you?" as Macron stepped out of his black limousine.

Trump not only "ignored the bargain that is at the heart of NATO", Rathke said.

But in Europe, Trump has faced a far cooler reception and has been eager to go on the offensive. -Middle East relationships under President Barack Obama.

"This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States, and many of these nations owe massive amounts of money from past years", Trump said as the other leaders stood in awkward silence.

In Brussels, Trump sat in a morning meeting with top European Union leaders.

"It is much better than just a declaratory mention of Article V".

The subject of Russian Federation did not come up in a broader meeting between United States and European officials, said Michael Anton, a spokesman for the National Security Council.

On one hand, the president's remark that "23 of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying and what they're supposed to be paying for their defense" is accurate.

"President Trump dedicated the 9/11 and Article 5 memorial - a powerful reminder of NATO solidarity and importance of our common fight against terrorism", NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg told reporters. He called it a "strong political message", as well as a practical one.

The NATO summit isn't over yet, but so far, it's so Trump. "He was very pleasant, he was very easy going", this official said.

The first is that that he sees security in terms of a business transaction.

Days before President Donald Trump embarked on his first foreign trip, national security adviser H.R. McMaster said the administration's message to allies would be: "America first" does not mean "America alone".

Tusk, in his comments after meeting Trump, hinted at a mild clash at least. The president hosted Abe at the White House and his Mar-a-Lago resort back in February, where they appeared to hit it off. "The greatest task today is the consolidation of the whole free world around those values and not just interests".

The NATO-led alliance that came to the United States' aid in Afghanistan and Iraq sent more than 3,000 soldiers home in body bags. But his volatile style could upend even summit decisions.

NATO's leaders used the excuse of the vast new headquarters to invite the former real estate mogul for a ribbon-cutting, even though construction on the site - a former military airfield - is not yet finished.
