Trump Opens NATO Summit by Pitching a Fit

Flake's advice to Trump on Putin meeting

"Ultimately Germany will have nearly 70% of their country controlled by Russian Federation with natural gas, so you tell me - is that appropriate?" he asked at Wednesday's breakfast meeting with Mr Stoltenberg. I have a very good relationship.

Trump-whose presidential campaign is now under investigation for possible collusion with the Russian government-launched his attack on Germany and other US allies during breakfast with members of his cabinet, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation secretary general Jens Stoltenberg, and other alliance officials.

"We all agree that we have to do more", said NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg during a breakfast meeting with Trump.

Germany is totally controlled by Russia, Trump said.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel hit back at President Donald Trump after he accused Germany of being "totally controlled by Russia"' and urged allies to look into the issue during a rant at the outset of this week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels.

Germany's plan to increase its defence expenditure to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation target of 2% of GDP by 2030. was not good enough, Trump said, adding: "They could do it tomorrow".

Trump is expected to argue again overseas that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies also fail to spend enough on their defense budget.

Trump said Germany's closure of coal and nuclear power plants on environmental grounds had increased its dependence, like much of the rest of Europe, on Russian gas.

Mr Stoltenberg appeared to be taken aback by the ferocity of Mr Trump's onslaught, insisting other member states were committed to paying more, while acknowledging the need to go further.

Berlin has given political support to the building of a new, $11-billion pipeline to bring Russian gas across the Baltic Sea called Nord Stream 2, despite qualms among other European Union states. "We lost $151 billion previous year on trade", the president told reporters.

Merkel said she raised issues of migration and economic development with Trump.

European Council President Donald Tusk addressed Trump's criticism, telling the U.S. President to "appreciate your allies, after all you don't have that many", at an E.U.

"But I have to bring it up because I think it's very unfair to our country, it's very unfair to our taxpayer", he said.

Trump called Germany a rich country that could increase its defense spending immediately if it wanted to.

Germany is not a captive of anyone, neither Russian Federation nor the US, German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas said in response to US President Donald Trump's description of his country as a "captive" of Russian Federation.

In his statement posted on Twitter, Kerry said Trump's broadside against an American ally had weakened the United States.
