Trump to EU: Germany Is 'Bad, Very Bad' For Selling Too Many Cars in the U.S.

Trump to EU: Germany Is 'Bad, Very Bad' For Selling Too Many Cars in the U.S.

He is likely to be received warily, but the White House says the president has made personal breakthroughs with his peers.

Trump's confrontational remarks in Brussels, on the eve of the two-day summit in the Mediterranean resort town of Taormina in Sicily, cast a pall over a meeting at which America's partners had hoped to coax him into softening his stances on trade and climate change.

And really, Sean Spicer, for one, played down the idea that President Trump should have explicitly supported or endorsed Article V, you know, saying, look, he was there to dedicate - to read the dedication, to give a speech at a memorial that is called Article V and 9/11.

Markovic appears to be taken aback at first, but after seeing that it was Trump, he smiles and pats Trump on the back.

It is thought that the comments from President Trump were leaked by participants seated within a talk among European Union leaders in Brussels on Thursday.

"Unfortunately", Abe told reporters, "this time around we won't be able to play golf together".

"It's a big problem, it's a world problem, but it will be solved at some point".

"We should recognize that with these chronic underpayments and growing threats even 2 percent of GDP is insufficient to close the gaps in modernizing readiness and the size of forces", Trump continued.

The president said the men would discuss the situation with North Korea, which has repeatedly conducted missile tests, rattling its Pacific neighbors. Cohn said Russian Federation is likely to be a topic of discussion at the meeting.

Brussels could be the toughest leg yet of what has so far been a largely trouble-free first foreign trip for Trump, who came direct from a meeting with Pope Francis at the Vatican, and previously visited Saudi Arabia, Israel and the Palestinian Territories.

Macron said he spoke with Trump about the Paris agreement to reduce greenhouse gases.

In the wake of this week's suicide bomb attack at a concert in Manchester, NATO leaders are keen to show that the alliance born in the Cold War is responding to today's security threats as they meet in Brussels.

Mr Trump claims 23 of the 28 member nations are not paying what they should and it's "not fair" to the people of the United States.

As NATO leaders congregated, Trump forcefully slapped a hand on the shoulder of Montenegro Prime Minister Dusko Markovic, pushed him aside, and barreled his way through to the front of the group.

Trump, a real estate magnate, called the building "beautiful" and joked that he did not dare ask how much it cost.
