Trump says United Kingdom 'in turmoil', declines to offer support to May

But for months, former real estate magnate Trump, eager to distance himself from both the Democratic and Republican politicians who preceded him, has been preaching a very different message.

It was a startling gambit for Trump to risk offending his host by showering Johnson with praise while May faces threats of a revolt - even a no-confidence vote - by her own Conservative party over how she is handling Brexit.

"I do think Russian Federation is trying to flip Turkey; they're trying to flip many of our allies", Hutchison said.

Speaking to a cheering crowd at a rally this week, Trump told them that the USA would no longer be "the schmucks paying for the whole thing". And he commiserated with Mr. Putin over Trump administration officials whom the Russian president said had tried to prevent the call from happening, according to a person with direct knowledge of the conversation.

Earlier, Mayor London Sadiq Khan defended his decision to approve a giant "Trump baby" balloon that protestors will float over Parliament Square during the President's visit this Friday.

But it's not a binding legal commitment. Most NATO member states have not yet reached this goal, but a number of member states are expected to break the threshold in 2019. "This is unfair, nor is is acceptable".

He added: "NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS". Separately, the USA envoy said she's concerned that Russian Federation is trying to "flip" Turkey and other American allies to its column.

"It's not dues like a country club".

Wimbledon 2018 results: Angelique Kerber, Jelena Ostapenko advance to semifinals
In the women's quarter-final on No1 Court, Ostapenko defeated Dominika Cibulkova in another match dominated by breaks of serve. Although it wasn't her cleanest match - Ostapenko finished with 28 errors to Cibulkova's 13 - she was simply overpowering.

Despite Trump's complaints, U.S. Ambassador to NATO Kay Bailey Hutchison assured the overall theme of the summit is "NATO's strength and unity". In 2017, the U.S.is estimated to have spent more than 68% of the cumulative total.

Leaders converged on Brussels fearful of what the combative US president might say or do to rupture the liberal world order, with some European diplomats privately predicting calamity.

"If we all speak with the same voice and say you can come into the community of nations, you can be a major player for good - but not when you're violating your commitments, violating treaties, going into a sovereign nation and trying to kill a citizen as happened in United Kingdom.,' she said, referencing the Novichok attack in Britain". "Those of the leaders that have negotiated with Putin or have experience with him are going to have a hard sell to make about why our defense spending commitments in Europe are important and why the United States should continue to have troops in Poland on a rotational basis, for example".

The Declaration, which comes two years after an initial agreement made in Warsaw, states that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the European Union are strengthening cooperation in a range of areas, including military mobility, counter-terrorism, resilience to chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear-related risks, and promoting the women, peace and security agenda.

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg (C) and European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker (R) sign a new joint declaration on EU-NATO cooperation in Brussels, Belgium, July 10, 2018.

"The main concern is he will spend much of the time berating them on not spending enough on defense" before having "a love fest with Putin, like he did with Chairman Kim", Goldgeier said. "Yet you see out of the president, constant acclaim". He's fine. We're all fine. "That's certainly up to the people, not up to me".

At the same time, he declared that "Putin is fine" and that he had been preparing for their summit "all my life".
