Awkward! Donald Trump 'Shoves' Montenegro PM For Photo-Op, Roasted Online

President Donald Trump shares a word with German

President Donald Trump shares a word with German

Sicily is on the front lines in Europe's migration crisis, the first landfall for most of the more than 180,000 migrants who arrived in Italy past year - and the reason the Italian government chose Sicily as the backdrop for this summit. It rejected George W. Bush.

Trump finally seemed ready to pull away - but Macron evidently wasn't.

One objectionable thing about Mr. Trump, as European politicians were quick to point out Thursday, is that he expects them to pay a fair share for their own and the common defense.

But Trump said as much, by implication, in his remarks at the unveiling of an Article 5 memorial at NATO's Brussels headquarters.

But he complained that "23 of the 28 member nations are still not paying what they should be paying. for their defence".

Hungarian Foreign Minister Peter Szijjarto, who attended meetings of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member leaders on Thursday when Trump spoke, said he was confident having heard the USA leader speak that the United States would fulfil its obligations and wanted Europeans to do the same."What I heard from him yesterday in the meeting made me relaxed", he said. Most NATO members, meanwhile, spend less than the 2 percent benchmark.

These are worrying times for those members on NATO's eastern edge, especially for countries such as Ukraine that are dependent on the alliance for support against a newly assertive Russian Federation.

But for others in Kiev, Trump's omission of an explicit commitment to Article Five was cause for concern. Major European newspapers reported that he "failed" to endorse the mutual defense promise.

Anne Applebaum, a visiting professor at the LSE Institute of Global Affairs, tweeted that it was "very striking that Trump made a point of "not lecturing" the Saudis, and then arrived in Brussels and lectured Europeans".

US President Donald Trump ditched the charm for snarls at the G7 Summit.

"But some issues remain open, like climate and trade".

But now, she said, she wasn't so sure: "The question is hanging in the air: What is the position of the American president?"

It was a breach of the tradition that ex-presidents keep their opinions about their successors private.

With a grimace, Mr. Trump emerges from behind Mr. Markovic and slaps him on the arm. But Mr. Obama is no longer president.

But even that has prompted discord among participants as Trump, according to Italian sources and activists, resists the hosts' desire to issue a declaration underlining the benefits as well as pitfalls of migration.
