Schumer Tells Trump to Cancel Meeting With Putin - Cortney O'Brien

"Yesterday I let them know that I was extremely unhappy with what was happening", Trump said at an impromptu press conference, adding, "Now we are very happy".

But now, according to media reports, Trump has threatened to withdraw the USA from the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO, ) or to change its pivotal role in the alliance, over the matter.

The president will also be attending a pair of meetings of the North Atlantic Council before he departs for the United Kingdom.

Trump insisted that he would bring up key subjects including Syria, although he once again failed to rule out recognising Russia's annexation of Crimea.

The White House is stressing that the new indictment against 12 Russian military intelligence officers contains no allegations of knowing involvement by anyone on the Trump campaign or that the hacking the Russians are accused of conducting affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

Trump reiterated Friday that he is not going into the meeting with high expectations, but he said the two leaders would also discuss "a number of things", including cuts to nuclear weapons arsenals.

"We're very happy and have a very, very powerful, very, very strong North Atlantic Treaty Organisation. The question remains: how long will they continue to break this shameful comedy that disgraces the U.S.", the Russian statement, obtained by CNN, read.

He said he briefed the president earlier this week about the indictments, but declined to describe Trump's reaction.

She attended her brother-in-law's wedding in May, Trooping the Colour in June, and now the RAF centenary commemorations. The outlet reported that Kate felt the celebration was important to be at if she was feeling up to it.

While not expressing outright support for the meeting with Russian Federation, which is to take place on Monday, McCain said Thursday that that summit represented an opportunity for Trump "to demonstrate his willingness to defend America" against its adversaries.

At present, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has 29 members and few have reached this goal - only five North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members are expected to meet the 2% target by the end of the year.

Mr Trump is annoyed because only the US, Britain, Estonia and Greece now meet the two per cent target, with America spending the most at 3.5 per cent.

U.S. President Donald Trump is claiming a victory, saying he's gotten NATO's members to spend two per cent of their GDP on defence by 2024. But Mr Trump seemed satisfied they had agreed to meet the target soon.

President Donald Trump's rhetoric on the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance has often been misleading, and he has distorted how the historic alliance is funded and operates. "And you'll be seeing that and I guess you'll be hearing that a little bit later".

In the meantime, President Donald Trump has arrived in Great Britain for his first visit as president amid North Atlantic Treaty Organisation tensions, protests and Brexit turmoil. Ahead of the trip, Trump predicted his meeting with Putin would be his "easiest" stop on his European tour. "I don't know that is what they voted for".

On Friday, Trump will meet with Prime Minister Theresa May and Queen Elizabeth II and then spend the weekend at one of his private golf courses in Scotland.
