Trump Fears Rosenstein Is a 'Covert Liberal Trying to Undermine His Presidency'

The US president said he would be discussing Syria, the Middle East, Ukraine and nuclear proliferation. He then stunned allies by telling them to eventually double the figure to a punishing four percent.

Trump himself said that "the US commitment to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation remains very strong" and withdrawing was "unnecessary". "The communiqué is clear: it reaffirms the commitment to two percent [of GDP]", said Macron, who was photographed smiling and sharing a hug with Trump on Wednesday despite recent tensions between the two.

"The clear message from President Trump is having an impact", he said.

Following Thursday's emergency session of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members, Trump declared the military alliance to be "very unified, very strong, no problem".

Macron, in his own press conference, seemed to reject Trump's claim that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation powers had agreed to increases beyond previous targets.

Earlier Friday during a press conference overseas with his British counterpart, Trump vowed to press Putin about his government's interference in the 2016 American election - though he appeared to leave open, as always, the possibility that he won't.

Helsinki was most notably the site for the 1975 Helsinki Accords, which helped establish terms for how the U.S., Russian Federation and Europe would engage with national security and human rights issues.

Trump did not directly answer questions about whether he had threatened to take the USA out of the alliance, saying he "told people I'd be very unhappy if they didn't up their commitments very substantially".

At NATO's 2014 summit in Wales, in the face of new Russian aggression and the annexation of Crimea, the allies had pledged to increase investments in defence and move towards investing 2 per cent of their GDP in collective security.

Texas lawmaker attacks Federal Bureau of Investigation agent over affair
On Thursday, Republicans disputed his contention that he wasn't biased and that his views didn't affect the investigation. "Mr. There were more than 75 lawmakers present at some point during the hearing - almost a fifth of the House.

"All Allies have started to increase the amount they spend on defence in real terms and some two-thirds of Allies have national plans in place to spend 2% of their Gross Domestic Product on defence by 2024".

"President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russian Federation takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won't interfere in future elections", Schumer added.

Negotiations would then be widened to include members of both delegations, he said, adding that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will hold parallel talks in Helsinki with his USA counterpart, Mike Pompeo.

Adding to his extraordinary takedown of May, Trump praised Boris Johnson, who stepped down this week as foreign secretary over Brexit.

He touted his government's long-awaited defence policy review, released last June, as the answer to Trump's latest demands for more spending from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies. Trump tweeted on Thursday morning before the second day of talks.

"Yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening and they have substantially upped their commitment".

Mr Trump fuelled a fire by appearing to criticise prime minister Theresa May's Brexit plan, after the resignation of foreign secretary Boris Johnson and her minister in charge of the European Union exit, David Davis.

Critics said they were skeptical Trump would press the issue at all, despite the indictments. "So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route".
