"NATO is much stronger now than it was two days ago", Trump said, adding that this morning's unscheduled crisis meeting was "fantastic" with leaders having "a great collegial spirit". "Imports totaled $592 billion, leading to a $92 billion goods and services trade deficit with the European Union". "I think that's very inappropriate".

And he praised himself for getting them all to sign up to bigger defence budgets and sharing the financial burden more equally.
He also renewed a demand that they even double that - though many question what they could usefully spend it on.
With scorching language, Trump questioned the necessity of the alliance that formed a bulwark against Soviet aggression, tweeting after a day of contentious meetings: "What good is North Atlantic Treaty Organisation if Germany is paying Russian Federation billions of dollars for gas and energy?"
Impolitic? Perhaps. But is Trump wrong?
Democrats on Capitol Hill said the indictments underscored the need for Trump to press Putin on the issue. Trump has repeatedly denounced low levels of defense spending among remaining members, particularly Germany.
"If they do a deal like that, we would be dealing with the European Union instead of dealing with the United Kingdom, so it will probably kill the deal", Trumptold the paper.
Brussels may dismiss this as typical Trumpian bluster, but my sense is that Trump is not bluffing. He is visibly losing patience.
He also said he thought spending of 4 percent on defence - similar to the U.S. level - would be the right level.

According to the Office of the U.S. Trade Representative, the European Union "is the top export market for the United States at $501 billion in goods and services in 2016".
It's an uncomfortable environment for May, who is facing her own political unrest outside of Trump's visit. But he did not rule out recognising Rissia's annexation of Crimea.
And he appears earnest about reducing our massive trade deficits in goods that have been bleeding jobs, plants, equipment, capital and technology overseas. As to whether he could unilaterally pull the US out of the alliance without congressional approval, Trump said, "I think I probably can, but that's not necessary".
"Trump has no alternative vision for organizing the world - he is wholly in destruction mode", said Steil, author of a new book on the Marshall Plan. But Emmanuel Macron of France seemed to contradict him. Going into the week he was pressuring them to spend 2 percent of their gross domestic product (GDP) on defense, a figure that was established in 2002 and reaffirmed in 2014 when the allies not meeting the target pledged to reach it within a decade.
Trump has been getting around by helicopter to avoid the protests in central London.
One idea Trump floated last week was the threat of a drawdown of the 35,000 USA troops in Germany. But would this really rattle the Germans?
The summit's dramatic, chaotic conclusion - complete with the USA president suddenly making demands following a formal communique - bore a striking similarity to Trump's departure from last month's G7 meetings in Quebec.
During a post-summit briefing, Denmark's foreign minister, Anders Samuelsen, was one of several leaders who pointed to the president's unpredictability on whether the USA would remain an ally of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Now he is demanding that the Europeans contribute more to defense.
