Trump's strained visit with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, meeting with Putin

The two leaders are due to meet on July 16 in Finland, and CNN previously reported Trump plans to meet Putin one-on-one before bringing in others to join their discussions.

"I think that our alliance is very solid and including all of the efforts that the United States is making to shore up the sovereignty of the Ukraine". Trump sent letters to the leaders of several North Atlantic Treaty Organisation countries ahead of his visit, warning that it would become "increasingly hard to justify to American citizens why some countries fail to meet our shared collective security commitments".

"We will talk about the biggest increase in defence spending by our allies since the Cold War", she said.

As many as 33% of those surveyed said they had positive expectations from the summit, while one percent said that, the outcome of the highly-talked about event would be negative for Russian Federation.

Germany's defense minister last week rebuffed Trump's twinning of trade and European defense spending.

"I'm going to tell NATO: You've got to start paying your bills".

"He will have watched the Kim Jong Un summit and he will have the same appraisal: that Trump gave away a major American card without getting anything concrete back for it", said a former senior USA official.

In addition to that there is a sense of anxiety about Trump's relation with Russian Federation.

The two ambassadors laid out a preliminary schedule for Trump's travels.

European allies may be less anxious about how Trump might behave in Brussels than about what he could say or do in his meeting with Putin, whose approval he so appears to crave.

"Prior presidents saw America's allies as enhancing USA power and really enabling the United States in being the global leader that it has been for so long, especially compared to China and Russian Federation, which have very few allies", said Goldgeier.
