Trump Slams NATO Spending on Eve of Departure for Summit

Moscow drafts a blueprint for the Putin-Trump summit in Helsinki

Although the 29-member military alliance's annual meetings have traditionally been fairly by-the-books events, expectations are different this year - thanks, in large, to Donald Trump.

Mere moments before boarding Marine One en route to Brussels for the NATO Summit, US President Donald Trump made his feelings about the alliance clear - again.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation is the foundation of American military strategy and foreign policy and Trump appears ready to destroy it to forge a relationship with the Russian dictator who he idolizes, Wilson said.

European Council President Donald Tusk directed a message at Trump, saying "it is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem".

Mr Tusk recalled that the Europeans are spending more than Russian Federation and as much as China on defence.

"Dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don't have all that many", Tusk said, according to the Associated Press.

The European Union is the top export market for the United States at $501 billion in goods and services in 2016, the latest available figures provided by the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative. "Who would think", the president said.

While Mr Trump is looking to improve relations with Russian Federation, there has been alarm at the deteriorating climate with his allies in Europe and what he might agree to with President Putin.

He tweeted on Tuesday morning (Wednesday NZT): "Getting ready to leave for Europe".

'Appreciate your allies, you don't have many:' EU's Tusk to Trump
On Nato, President Trump's main objection is that a number of member states have not increased their defence budgets to the target of 2% of economic output.


Trump has, meanwhile, delivered on US commitments to Europe. "Charge us big Tariffs (& Barriers)!" he wrote on Twitter.

He has also pointed the finger at European Union member states for not spending enough on defence - a long-standing complaint of U.S. presidents, including Barack Obama.

Mr. Tusk chided Mr. Trump while the president was en route to Brussels. "And dear Europe, spend more on your defense", he said.

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".

During his first meeting at the group's headquarters in Brussels a year ago, Trump suggested that members who haven't been paying their fair share should be required to pay back dues.

The resignation came just weeks ahead of Wednesday's summit, highlighting Trump's policies are not only dividing U.S. allies, but also senior USA officials.

President Trump, who flew into the Belgian capital on Tuesday evening, is angry that the United States is paying a disproportionate amount in defence spending.

Other NATO countries are also expanding their presence in Eastern Europe, with Canada announcing it would extend its military presence in Latvia for another four years.

'When NATO has a Russian Federation council with the Ambassador from Russian Federation, we talk about the concerns that we have about Ukraine, the concerns that we have about Crimea, ' she said.
