    Downing Street denied the itinerary was designed to avoid London - pointing out that US Presidents including Bill Clinton (pictured with John Major) had been hosted at Chequers

    US President Richard Nixon was hosted for talks at Chequers by PM Harold Wilson when he visited the UK in 1969

    'Germany is a captive of Russia': Trump dresses down NATO's secretary general and threatens Berlin over its lagging defense spending and energy partnership with Putin's government

    • Donald Trump unleashed his fury on NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg on Wednesday morning after the leader asked him about gripes about Germany
    • 'Germany is totally controlled by Russia,' Trump charged. 'I think its a very bad thing for NATO.'
    • President Trump has berated America's European allies for failing to meet their defense spending obligations to NATO
    • The complaints come full circle this week at the NATO leaders' summit
    • On Tuesday, European Council President Donald Tusk hit back at Trump, telling him, 'America does not have and will not have a better ally than Europe'
    • Tusk said: 'America appreciate your allies. After all you don't have that many'
    • President Trump tweeted minutes later: NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS. Very Unfair!'
    • He told reporters as he prepared to board Marine One that America has plenty of allies and put new pressure on NATO nations to increase their defense spending

    Trump told Stoltenberg that the alliance must confront Germany over its gas deal with Russia. German Chancellor Angela Merkel is seen her on Wednesday during her Cabinet meeting in Berlin. She'll see Trump later today at NATO

    U.S. President Donald Trump signaled Tuesday that European leaders can expect a reckoning when he sees them this week in Brussels at the NATO summit and faced an immediate brush-back from European Council President Donald Tusk

    Trump signaled in early morning tweets that foreign leaders can expect a reckoning when he sees them this week in Brussels at the NATO summit over the 'unfair' burden on the U.S. taxpayer to pay for Europe's protection. He's seen here in May of 2017 at a working dinner at last year's NATO gathering

    I am in Brussels, but always thinking about our farmers. Soy beans fell 50% from 2012 to my election. Farmers have done poorly for 15 years. Other countries’ trade barriers and tariffs have been destroying their businesses. I will open...
