United Kingdom in turmoil, President Donald Trump says ahead of visit

The ties between the US and many of its longest-standing allies have frayed since Trump took office and put his "America first" agenda into practice.

After Putin told Trump that White House advisers were trying to interfere, Trump reportedly called those advisers "stupid people", and told Putin he "shouldn't listen to them". Foreign Secretary Boris Johnson and Brexit Secretary David Davis resigned within hours of each other in protest of her plan.

"We don't want anyone interfering with elections", she said. The EU did strike back with retaliatory tariffs on USA goods.

The U.S. Commerce Department's Bureau of Economic Analysis website says that the European Union had a trade in goods surplus with the U.S.in 2017 of US$151.4 billion - not million. Then, in 2014, they agreed to meet this goal by 2024. Instead, a series of events _ a black-tie dinner with business leaders, a meeting with Prime Minister Theresa 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 Trump. -NATO meeting ahead of the summit, according to Reuters.

Analyst Karlijn Jans of the Hague Centre for Strategic Studies said there have been numerous governmental and independent reports "talking about the dire state of especially European militaries - in terms of how they're able to deploy, if they can work together in the battlefield, communicate with each other".

President Tusk and President Juncker will attend two meetings at the NATO Summit, which starts in Brussels tomorrow (11 July).

That impulse may be strongest this week with Merkel, who has been a stalwart against Trump's disruptions in Europe but whose standing took a blow last month when she confronted the most serious leadership challenge in her 13-year rule of Germany.

When asked if Mr. Trump will tell Mr. Putin to stop interfering with USA elections, Ms. Conway declined to give a specific answer.

"We spend on defence much more than Russian Federation and as much as China".

President Donald Trump predicted his sit-down with Russian President Vladimir Putin next week would be easier than his confab with the United States' closest allies. "[Trump] doesn't at least seem to reflect that what we share in common with our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies is not only a common defense alliance, but we have a shared belief in rule of law".

So everyone knows what to expect come Wednesday and Thursday, when Trump and his NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison (who thinks the president is hitting it out of the park, of course) will join our global security allies.

"Dear America, appreciate your allies", Tusk said.

Some diplomats fear the president will threaten to pull troops out of Europe without more spending on defense, despite USA denials.

European Union and U.S. government data put the USA trade deficit with the European Union at around $100 billion, including services such as finance, where the United States has a surplus.
