Trump pushes aside Montenegro leader _ who calls it natural

Although he has since softened his tone in phone calls and meetings with Western leaders, Trump's sharp words on Thursday recalled his awkward meeting with Angela Merkel in March, when he pressed the German chancellor for Germany to meet NATO's military spending target.

It is not the first video of US President Donald Trump which went viral in the last few days but definitely the most amusing of them.

The speech was also surrounded by a series of freakish actions from the president.

President Donald Trump on Thursday chastised North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders for not paying their fair share to protect the alliance, complaining in front of them that the defense burden the United States has shouldered for many years is "not fair" to its taxpayers. "But it is attractive".

On social media, among Mr Trump's most vocal critics was author JK Rowling, the creator of Harry Potter.

Trump said he was "very direct" with NATO Secretary Jens Stoltenberg and other leaders about ponying up more on defense spending. And relations between the United States and the United Kingdom are tense as well, with the UK opting not to share any more intelligence with the USA concerning the Manchester bombing because of leaks including the name of the bomber and images of the evidence from the scene itself.

Trump also had lunch with Macron, who has been critical of the Republican president. " "Some leaders serious, others whispering to each other".

Trump then straightens his jacket and has a brief conversation with Lithuanian President Dalia Grybauskaite.




Because of President Trump's past praise of Russia's President Vladimir Putin, and his tough talk on migrants and minorities, protesters were out in mass when he arrived in Brussels.

In a statement issued by the White House, Trump said the "alleged leaks coming out of government agencies are deeply troubling".

"There is a high degree of unpredictability here for sure".

Once more, he will likely be received warily, a president who ran on a campaign of "America First" with suggestions of disentangling the United States from worldwide pacts, now engaged in two days of pomp and policy with the leaders of the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and Canada.

So despite disagreements with some European leaders, and disdain from some in the European public, strong ties with the US are likely to continue. -European relations since Trump took office.

Big G7 meetings today.

Donald Trump backs the view that Brexit is an "incident not a trend", European Council President Donald Tusk has said.
