Associate McCain pointed out Trump how to negotiate with Putin

Associate McCain pointed out Trump how to negotiate with Putin

Christian Lindner, head of the pro-business Free Democrats, told Deutschlandfunk in an interview that he did not trust Trump, and his actions on trade and in the security arena were not in the United States' long term interest. "And that's fine. Of course, they kill us on trade".

Fifteen members of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation are on track to meet the pledge to spend two percent of their GDP on defense by 2024, and "every one of our allies - 100 percent - are increasing defense spending, so that's something we will talk about as an achievement, but we have to do more", she added.

It may be harder to predict what the American president - vs. his Russian counterpart - will say at the July 16 summit in Helsinki.

In the event the US President also proposed to return to Russian Federation in the elite club to resume meetings in the format of "big eight", Which was indignantly rejected by the European leaders. "This is not fair, nor is it acceptable", Trump tweeted Monday morning, previewing his message in Brussels. Putin's aggressive foreign policy is a threat to both us and our allies.

The US commander-in-chief has a familiar stick to wield: the shortfall in defense spending; or as Trump puts it, allies' refusal to "pay what they owe".

Trump then criticized the European Union for recently striking a deal with Russia's energy-exporting monopoly Gazprom that will tighten Moscow's grip on Europe as its leading fuel supplier, which it has been for decades.

It also makes sense for Trump to speak with Putin and to be able to tell him he'd like his behavior to change, and that's what he is doing, the ambassador said. Estimated 2017 defense spending as a percentage of GDP was 1.2 percent in Germany, Europe's biggest economy.

"I don't think he has a choice. He said that we should keep our eyes open and take the next steps". US officials said the two sides this time would be discussing Russian election meddling, Russia's incursions in the Ukraine and involvement in Syria.

Jon Huntsman Jr., Trump's ambassador to Moscow, hinted that the US president takes a tougher line on Putin in private, telling reporters, "The president will continue to hold Russian Federation accountable for its malign activities".

Huntsman cited Trump's meeting earlier this month with North Korean Kim Jong Un as having "reduced tension on the Korean Peninsula", and said that any reduction in tension with Russian Federation "would be on a much bigger scale".

Trump has shown his affinity for closed-door meetings already during his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un last month.
