Donald Trump says he expects to find United Kingdom in 'turmoil' during visit

Tusk, a former Polish premier, addressing Trump directly about his meeting with Putin, said, "It is always worth knowing who is your strategic friend and who is your strategic problem".

Sources told the newspaper Kommersantthat the Kremlin has submitted a two-page document to the White House with a first draft of a potential statement Moscow hopes Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will make at the conclusion of their Helsinki summit next week.

But he also acknowledged that Trump is right on spending, saying "dear Europe, spend more on your defence, because everyone respects an ally that is well-prepared and equipped". "As far as I'm concerned, he's a competitor".

"Is the President just going to focus on defense spending and basically hijack the entire conversation?" says Heather Conley, director of the Europe Program at the Center for Strategic and International Studies.

"Europeans spend on defense many times more than Russian Federation and as much as China and I think you have no doubt, Mr. President, that this is an investment in common American and European defense and security, which can not be said with confidence about Russian Federation or Chinese spending", Tusk said.

Speaking about his European trip, Trump said his sitdown with Putin might be "easiest" of all the meetings. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all.

Among many other facilities, Germany hosts a US military hospital at Landstuhl, the largest American hospital outside the United States.

They will visit Croke Park, the home of Ireland's largest sporting organisation, the Gaelic Athletic Association (GAA). The couple will see the Book of Kells at Trinity College Dublin and will visit the city's Irish Famine memorial.

As we approach the July 16 meeting, the European Council's President, Donald Tusk, has sent a clear message to the United States.

As we have written before, Trump is conflating NATO's direct and indirect spending to claim that the U.S.

In a second tweet, the president wrote: "NATO countries must pay MORE, the United States must pay LESS".

"Getting ready to leave for Europe. Will they reimburse the US?" he said in one tweet.

Britain's summer 2016 referendum saw the leave side prevail by a 52-48 margin - a populist victory combined with Trump's surprise victory in the USA presidential race later in the year that sparked upheaval in the global order. "On top of that we lose $151 Billion on Trade with the European Union". At the G7 meeting in June, weeks after slapping tariffs on U.S. allies, Trump fiercely criticized Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau for suggesting Canada might impose retaliatory tariffs on the U.S. Then, after engaging in a public spat with one of America's closest allies, Trump sat down with Kim and declared that he and the dictator have developed a "special bond".

Tusk responded in kind on Twitter.

The EU's most senior official joined a fiery feud between Mr Trump and North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members, insisting the US President should appreciate his allies because he has so few across the world.
