Trump heads to Europe, says Putin ‘easiest' of his meetings
President Donald Trump launched a week-long Europe trip on Tuesday with harsh criticism for NATO allies and predicted the "easiest" leg of his journey would be his scheduled sit-down with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
As he departed the White House for a four-nation European tour, Trump did little to reassure allies fretting over the risk of damage he could do to the 69-year-old trans-Atlantic mutual defense pact and his potential embrace of Putin during a summit in Helsinki.
Trump said on Tuesday he "can't say right now" if Putin is a friend or foe, but called him a "competitor". The US intelligence community has concluded that Russia interfered in the 2016 election to boost Trump's candidacy, and warns of further attempts at interference both in the 2018 mid terms and in European elections.
Speaking to reporters before leaving Washington for Brussels, where he is to attend the NATO summit, Trump criticised the pact, saying, "Frankly it helps them a lot more than it helps us."
Trump has been pressing NATO countries to fulfil their goal of spending 2 per cent of their gross domestic products on defense by 2024.
