Trump said of May's plan for a "soft Brexit" as opposed to a hard break from the European Union: "I don't know if that's what they voted for".

Pelosi asked reporters on Capitol Hill, adding that "there is no way to explain the disrespect" to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies or the "lack of understanding" that Putin does not hold US interests at heart. He said that two-thirds of the allied states had made plans to reach two per cent of GDP in 2024 and eight members had already achieved it.

President Donald Trump's trip to Europe brought him into conflict not only with other leaders, but at times with himself, as he alternately denounced policies of his counterparts and praised them fulsomely.

Trump has taken an aggressive tone during the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, questioning the value of an alliance that has defined decades of American foreign policy, torching an ally and proposing a massive increase in European defence spending. Trump claimed that member nations owe the United States money - they don't. "I was prepared to do things that would have been somewhat harsh yesterday, " Trump said Friday, touching on concerns by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation partners that the USA commitment might be shaky.

Remember when French President Emmanuel Macron visited the USA and got all chummy with the president? "After we're at 2 percent, we'll start talking about going higher".

"NATO is much stronger now than it was two days ago", President Trump said.

Mr Macron also denied the claim that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have agreed to boost defense spending beyond 2% of GDP. Add Donald Trump as an interest to stay up to date on the latest Donald Trump news, video, and analysis from ABC News.

Interestingly, the committee was opposed to the death penalty as a punishment - even in the rarest of the rare cases. There were some 40,000 rapes reported in India in 2016, according to the most recent official figures available.

He also said during a joint press conference with the British Prime Minister Theresa May that his administration was "tougher on Russian Federation than anybody".

And while the president has said he ultimately wants to up commitments doubled to 4 percent, for now he said that countries have agreed to move at a "faster clip" to meet the 2 percent threshold.

Woody Johnson, the USA ambassador to the United Kingdom, dismissed the significance of the protests, telling Fox News that one of the reasons the two countries are so close "is because we have the freedoms that we've all fought for". "Since President Trump was in Brussels last spring allies have added 41 billion extra for defense spending".

Critics said they were skeptical Trump would press the issue at all, despite the indictments.

"You never know but let's see, perhaps there will be a conversation about concrete visits to Moscow or to Washington", Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters on Friday, calling the summit "the main event of the summer".
