"President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russian Federation takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won't interfere in future elections". "I think that we would have a chance to have a very good relationship with Russian Federation and a very good relationship with President Putin". "The Russian state has never interfered and has no intention of interfering in the US elections", Putin's foreign affairs adviser, Yuri Ushakov, said Friday.

With allies fearing he could strike some sort of deal with NATO's key adversary, Trump said that he saw Putin as a "competitor" but not an "enemy".

With all this talk about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending, Doc thought now would be a good time to really break down the budget to see who's spending what in this military alliance.

"All Allies have started to increase the amount they spend on defence in real terms and some two-thirds of Allies have national plans in place to spend 2% of their Gross Domestic Product on defence by 2024".

Trump launched his blunt attack against Germany on the very first day of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit that took place in Belgium on Wednesday and Thursday, saying it was wrong to back importing more Russian gas and not meeting the Nato's target for defence spending.

However, Hurt actually believes the news could help Trump because he could use these indictment to point out that the Democrats' "collusion" scandal appears to be nothing more than unfounded political nonsense.

Trump himself did not give specific details on when his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies would fulfill the U.S. demands and to what amount.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced Friday that the 12 Russian military intelligence officers were charged with hacking into the accounts of the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton's campaign and other party operatives during the 2016 presidential election.

Overall, the U.S. provides about 22% of this budget based off a formula that accounts for the national income of member states.

It also comes three days before Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin meet in Finland. Because The United States has been paying a tremendous amount-probably 90% of the cost of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation...

Trump has described the spending situation as "disproportionate and not fair to the taxpayers of the United States". But Mr Trump seemed satisfied they had agreed to meet the target soon. And one of the freedoms we have is freedom of speech and the freedom to express your views. "I'm pleased that the Justice Department is following the facts wherever they may lead, despite Donald Trump's unsafe distortions and his refusal to acknowledge the conclusions reached by the American intelligence community".

"We had a very intense summit", Merkel herself told reporters after the meeting.
