President of Ukraine Petro Poroshenko expects that the upcoming meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will confirm that Ukraine is on the frontline of European and transatlantic politics.

Back in the US, Democratic congressional leaders Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer issued a joint statement describing Trump's "brazen insults and denigration of one of America's most steadfast allies, Germany", as "an embarrassment". The U.S.is paying for Europe's protection, then loses billions on Trade.

President Donald Trump branded Germany a "captive of Russia" for its support of a Baltic Sea gas pipeline deal this morning (July 11).

"Germany, as far as I'm concerned, is captive to Russia because it's getting so much of its energy from Russia", Trump told Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg in a fiery on-camera exchange that was among the harshest in the history of the post-World War II alliance.

"I don't think we're going to be changing defence policy on the back of Tony Abbott's commentary on the US-Australia alliance", Senator McKeznie told Sky News.

'It should never have been allowed to happen. "They will be getting between 60 and 70 percent of their energy from Russian Federation and a new pipeline, and you tell me if that is appropriate because I think it's not", the president said.

Facebook Is Getting Its First Big Fine Over the Cambridge Analytica Scandal
ICO, which does not normally publish its findings, said it would give the public another update on its investigation in October. "The ICO is clear that Facebook effectively broke the law by failing to keep users data safe, when their systems allowed Dr.

He also suggested he could find time to talk to his "friend" Boris Johnson, who left Mrs May's Brexit negotiations in chaos by resigning as Foreign Secretary. Russian Federation needs us to help with their economy, something that would be very easy to do, and we need all nations to work together.

That would represent a massive upheaval of budgetary priorities in Europe where Germany and many others have pledged only to reach 2 percent by 2024 or later, and it was not clear what allies would spend the money on.

Another key takeaway from the first day was President Trump's criticism of Angela Merkel's Germany.

When it was her turn to address reporters in the room for the meeting with Trump, Merkel made no similar declaration about her relationship with Trump. In 2017, Germany got more than one-third of its energy for electricity from coal and almost 12 percent from nuclear plants. Must pay 2 per cent of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025. The president said that allies increased spending by $40 billion at his urging. "He may be the only one, but that's OK with me".

Trump tweets: "Why are their (sic) only 5 out of 29 countries that have met their commitment?" The comment illustrated how Trump often seeks to avoid conflict with people when he is face to face with them versus the often-harsher rhetoric he uses when he's talking behind their back.

"Dear America, appreciate your allies, after all you don't have all that many", he said.
