Trump ready to help some North Atlantic Treaty Organisation states buy US arms

The Symbolic Corker Amendment Against Trump's Tariffs

The new German ambassador to the USA conveyed some of the simmering unease in her country and beyond during a Wednesday interview with CNN's Wolf Blitzer, when he asked whether her country thinks Trump would honor Article 5, the alliance commitment to come to a member's aid if they're attacked.

Trump dangled the possibility of support at the same event where he claimed North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners had agreed to new commitments to boost military spending - although other leaders did not buttress his claim that he had secured $33 billion in new commitments.

Asked about pressures on countries with weaker finances, he said, "We have many wealthy countries with us today but we have some that aren't so wealthy and they did ask me if they could buy the military equipment, and could I help them out, and we will help them out a little bit", he told a news conference. "But we've got it to a point people are paying a lot more money". They're happy to do it. "I just want fairness for the United States". It will be Trump's first working visit to the United Kingdom since he became President, and massive protests in London are expected. Energy exports represent Russia's main source of revenue, and Trump argues that the pipeline undermines NATO's objective, as it's created to counter Russian aggression.

The Republican senator has long voiced outspoken criticism of Trump's praise for the Russian leader.

The tough rhetoric against a core ally comes just days before Trump is set to meet one-on-one with Putin in Finland.

Asked during an impromptu news conference if he believes he could simply remove the USA from the alliance without Congress approving such a move, he replied: "I think I probably can, but that's not necessary".

Nothing has changed since Trump arrived in Brussels.

Trump: "The commitment was at 2% [GDP], ultimately that will be going quite a bit higher than that."

He said the force of the blast knocked him back in his chair and that he ran outside and saw a ball of fire. We felt this boom and I thought something landed on our roof, it was so loud.

Not only did Trump demand on Twitter on Thursday that countries meet the 2% level by this year, not 2024, but he also said all countries should eventually hit 4%, which is more than even the United States now spends.

"The people voted to break it up (Britain's ties with the EU)", Trump told a press conference in Brussels on Thursday. "It confirms the goal of 2% by 2024".

The emergency session came amid reports that Trump had threatened to leave the pact if allies didn't immediately up their spending. Officials said no explicit threat was made.

Trump said they had promised to do it faster than before, but French President Emmanuel Macron later said things were proceeding as planned.

"Yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening and they have substantially upped their commitment", President Trump told reporters, going on to repeat the claim that he had secured new commitments 10 more times during a press conference in Brussels.

When questioned in Latvia on his way to the summit in Brussels, Belgium, Trudeau said that Canada has no plans to double its defence budget when asked about meeting the two per cent figure directly.

Earlier Thursday, Trump called out US allies on Twitter, saying, "Presidents have been trying unsuccessfully for years to get Germany and other rich NATO Nations to pay more toward their protection from Russian Federation". "Must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025".

Under fire for his warm embrace of Russia's Vladimir Putin, Trump on Wednesday also turned a harsh spotlight on Germany's own ties to Russian Federation, alleging that a natural gas pipeline venture with Moscow has left Angela Merkel's government "totally controlled" and "captive" to Russian Federation.
