Trump rails against Germany, demands allies double NATO spending

U.S. President Donald Trump said he would discuss substantial reductions to nuclear weapons when he meets Russian President Vladimir Putin but cautioned that a "rigged witch hunt" in the United States was hampering efforts to improve relations.

Trump met with British Prime Minister Theresa May at her official country residence, Chequers, on Friday morning.

On immigration, Trump said Europe was "changing culture" and "changing security" through its policies and "they'd better watch themselves".

The summit came as transatlantic ties are already under strain due to USA trade tariffs, along with fears that Trump's summit on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin will pull him further from Nato's orbit.

Mr Stoltenberg said the president had injected a "new sense of urgency" into the discussions on "burden-sharing".

Trump said Khan had done "a very bad job on terrorism" and said he had "not been hospitable to a government that is very important".

Trump claimed victory after bitterly criticizing key allies, notably Germany, for failing to pay their way at one of the most fractious summits in Nato's 70-year history.

There were no immediate specifics on what Trump said he had achieved, and French President Emmanuel Macron quickly disputed Trump's claim that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies had agreed to boost defense spending beyond their existing goal of 2 percent of gross domestic product.

Mr Trump is due to face a press conference later in the day.




But he also said "this incredible woman right here is doing a fantastic job, a great job and I mean that".

But within days, two senior ministers had quit, departures which Trump said earlier in the week had left Britain in turmoil. "I think they agree with me on immigration", he told reporters in Brussels. "Most of those marching on Friday will love the United States, just as I do".

Trump said his statements to The Sun were based on reports he had read that indicated free trade would likely not be possible with Britain after it leaves the EU. "Of course that's coming from NBC, which is possibly worse than CNN", he said, adding that her question was "dishonest reporting".

The comments marked Trump's latest attempt to set the stage for his meeting with Putin, with a combination of tough talk and suggestions of future improved ties. He said he warned British Prime Minister Theresa May not to work toward a so-called "soft Brexit" that would maintain political and economic ties with the continent.

But Trump cautioned that it was hard to do substantive deals with Russia because of an investigation into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 USA election, a probe Trump cast as "rigged witch hunt".

At the centre of the demonstration is the giant six-metre-high balloon, which was cleared by the London mayor's office to fly over the centre of the city.

"I think allowing millions and millions of people to come into Europe is very, very sad", he said.

In the interview, Trump also said that Boris Johnson, former Foreign Secretary and potential leadership challenger to May, would make a "great prime minister", adding "I think he's got what it takes".

Trump said Khan had done "a awful job" on terrorism and crime in the capital.
