He claimed afterwards that there had been "tremendous progress" and that other members had agreed to increase their military spending after his "firm" warnings.

At one point, in a break with diplomatic protocol, a source said Trump addressed German Chancellor Merkel by her first name and told her: "Angela, you need to do something about this". "And I know that's valued very highly over here and people can disagree strongly and still go out to dinner".
"There should be no one-on-one meeting between this president and Mr. Putin".
Trump reportedly broke diplomatic protocol on Thursday by referring to German Chancellor Angela Merkel by her first name, and his intense demands regarding defense spending saw North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders enter a special emergency session.
Mr Trump also zeroed in on Mrs Merkel's Germany as he criticised the country's reliance on Russian Federation for energy, adding how can you look for peace when somebody has that much power over you.
"The commitment was at two percent and that'll be going up quite a bit higher than that", he said. And Trump should definitely not meet him alone. "The president was questioned in the United Kingdom why relations with Russian Federation are at a bad state", Warner said.
Since taking office, President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized North Atlantic Treaty Organisation over how the alliance is funded and pressured other member states to increase defense spending.
