Donald Trump boasted Thursday of singlehandedly winning commitments from his fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders to meet and exceed a defence spending target of two per cent of GDP - even though Prime Minister Justin Trudeau spoke only of continuing with Canada's existing military plan.

"Everyone's agreed to substantially up their commitments, they've agreed to up it to levels that they have never thought of before".

Earlier Mr Trump ha attended Mrs May's Chequers meeting and speaking at the end of the press conference the US President described Germany's reliance on Russian Federation as "terrible" and "horrific".

However, a formal summit declaration issued by the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders Wednesday reaffirmed their "unwavering commitment" to the two percent pledge set in 2014 and made no reference to any effort to get to four percent. "Not acceptable! All NATO Nations must meet their 2% commitment, and that must ultimately go to 4%!"

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allied leaders, who Trump met with in Brussels earlier this week, are skeptical about whether he will be firm enough with the Russian leader, who has denied the USA intelligence community's conclusion that Russia interfered in the election with the intent of helping Trump win. NATO Ambassador Kay Bailey Hutchison said last week that now 16 of 29 countries are on track to meet that goal. He tweeted Wednesday that member states "must pay 2% of GDP IMMEDIATELY, not by 2025".

"I don't think you'll have any, 'Gee, I didn't, I didn't, you got me, '" he told reporters. "We have to start to set them right". "We have been extremely tough on Russian Federation", he said at a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May. "I think that we would have a chance to have a very good relationship with Russian Federation and a very good relationship with President Putin".

"Russia has shown itself to be an adversary of the United States and our allies and a serious threat to global peace, security, and stability", they wrote to Trump.

Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said on Twitter that the indictments were "good news for all Americans".

Despite the first day's haranguing of allies for failing to meet spending targets and accusing Germany of being a prisoner to Russian energy, Trump was mild-mannered at a private dinner on Wednesday and avoided any outbursts that many North Atlantic Treaty Organisation diplomats had feared.

The US President will be delivered by Air Force One, straight from the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where he made a blistering attack on America's European allies over levels of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation defence spending. Meanwhile, the U.S. spends roughly 3.6% of its GDP on defense, as its military budget in 2017 was approximately $618 billion. "Now they are adding billions".

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.

"We welcome the considerable progress made since the Wales Summit with four consecutive years of real growth in non-US defence expenditure", states the communique.
