Tusk's European Union riposte to Trump: Respect the allies you have

Tusk's European Union riposte to Trump: Respect the allies you have

"So I don't know exactly what he is putting together in that ... but I know that there are many different areas where we are a dual objective", she said. "But I am concerned and I know there is concern across Europe about what might be promised".

Besides Brussels, Trump's trip will also take him to London, where Prime Minister Theresa May's government is in turmoil over her plans for exiting the European Union.

"NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS. In fact, Putin went as far as telling the President that the 'deep state" is conspiring against them both.

Officials claim that Trump has had several phone calls with the Russian President since taking office, and that the two men often plot global policy together. "And to say that Putin is a friendlier, easier meeting than with our oldest allies in the world is simply jaw-dropping".

"Well, we do have a lot of allies".

The former Polish prime minister, who these days chairs summits of EU leaders and will take part in the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting, recalled that Europe also came to Washington's help after the September 11 attacks, and that 870 European troops have fought and died in Afghanistan, including 40 from Poland.

"Dear @realDonaldTrump. US doesn't have and won't have a better ally than EU".

The tensions with Trump look all the more stark in the context of a summit that will take important decisions to boost NATO's ability to defend itself from the threat it sees from Russian Federation. "But above all when you meet President Putin in Helsinki" on July 16.

"Getting ready to leave for Europe". The U.S.is spending many times more than any other country in order to protect them.

These jabs come just weeks after the G7 summit and subsequent global flaps over tariffs and the President's trade wars, and just ahead of Trump's upcoming one-on-one with Vladimir Putin. On top of that we lose $151 Billion on Trade with the European Union.

"It will become increasingly hard to justify to American citizens why some countries continue to fail to meet our shared collective security commitments", Trump said in a letter addressed to Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg seen by Bloomberg News.

"We've had falling outs over Libya, Iraq in 2003, but it's qualitatively different in that the biggest of the allies doesn't just have disagreements with us, but actually seems willing to walk away", Valasek said.
