Chris Wallace Announces Exclusive Interview With Vladimir Putin Monday After Trump Summit

'Never Before in History': Fox News' Shep Smith Assails Trump for 'Unprecedented' Attacks on NATO Allies

In the closed-door session, Trump told his counterparts that if they did not meet their military spending targets of 2 percent of gross domestic product by January, the United States would go it alone, according to two officials briefed on the meeting.

"We are paying for far too much of Nato", Trump said. "He may deny it", Trump said of Putin.

"Yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening, " Trump said, adding that, in response, European countries agreed to up their spending.

Macron said he did not believe it was necessarily a good idea to raise the target for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members' defense spending to 4 percent of GDP from 2 percent, as Trump has suggested.

The Nato leaders, gathered in Brussels, held an unplanned emergency meeting earlier on Thursday after Mr Trump told allies to immediately increase their defence spending, diplomatic sources said.

President Donald Trump "upended world order" and could "turn back the global clock centuries" said Fox News anchor Shepard Smith in a blistering 10-minute opening to his show on Wednesday regarding the President's multiple anti-NATO tirades.

Mr Trump dominated the day and is set to stay in the spotlight as he visits the United Kingdom and prepares for a summit with Russian president Vladimir Putin.

His comment that Germany was controlled by Russian Federation earned a rebuke from Berlin.

"We're paying for anywhere from 70 to 90 percent to protect Europe, and that's fine."

"They have pledged to spend more", Smith concluded, "they are not freeloaders". "It's really extraordinary that Donald Trump has to be the person to point out that the emperor in Europe has no clothes".

Proponents of the resolutions then struggled to find a new sponsor, as more than a dozen countries feared retaliation. Ecuador quickly dropped its support for the resolution.

"They're propagandists. When I read what the Russian press said that transpired in those meetings, I don't know why - I don't believe them when they say they weren't involved in meddling in US elections", Moran said.

Smith played the clip of Trump saying Germany is "captive" of Russian Federation.

Sen. Jerry Moran of Kansas, who was on the trip, said in an interview that he had particular concerns about the possibility of Russian media entities misreporting the outcome of any one-on-one meeting between Trump and Putin. But "in each of the last four years, the vast majority of European nations in the alliance have increased their defense spending as a percentage of GDP".

Leaders will be keen to hear more about Trump's military approach to Afghanistan, which he revamped last August to include a surge in air strikes to force Taliban militants to the negotiating table.

"I have experienced myself how a part of Germany was controlled by the Soviet Union", Merkel, who grew up in communist East Germany, told reporters. "I hope we get along well, I think we'll get along well, but ultimately he's a competitor".

In May, the United States pulled out of a multinational deal that lifted many sanctions against Iran in return for curbs to its nuclear program.

Instead, a series of events - a black-tie dinner with business leaders, a meeting with May and an audience with Queen Elizabeth II - will happen outside the bustling city, where Mayor Sadiq Khan has been in a verbal battle with Mr. Trump.

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". And one of the freedoms we have is freedom of speech and the freedom to express your views.

"What am I going to do?"

In February, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said only about half of the alliance's 29 members are on track to meet the 2024 deadline - which he said would boost spending by $46 billion.
