Former head of UKIP Nigel Farage slammed the European Union defense plan, saying that by building an army to rival NATO, Brussels is "hell-bent" to be in direct collision with President Donald Trump and the bloc.

President Trump plans to confront Russian President Vladimir Putin on Moscow's malign activity around the globe, including election-meddling, when the two leaders meet for a high-stakes summit next week, top administration officials said Thursday.

"We go away on Monday..."

"I'll see North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and I'm going to tell North Atlantic Treaty Organisation - you got to start paying your bills". He lashed out at Europe over defence spending and trade, saying the USA is paying for anywhere from 70 to 90 per cent to protect Europe, but the European countries are not fair to the United States on trade. "And you need to make sure that we're willing, on our side, to hold Russian Federation responsible for the many activities that they are responsible for, whether that is election meddling; malign activities throughout Europe, including the Balkans, U.K. and Brexit, France, and Italy, just to mention a few; and to hold them responsible for" the destabilizing use of social media.

European Commission head, Jean-Claude Juncker, argued the figure is largely inaccurate as it neglects to include services and US profits, resulting not in a deficit but a $14 billion surplus from trade with the E.U., Bloomberg reported. They make it impossible to do business in Europe, and yet they come in and they sell their Mercedes and their BMWs to us. They kill us on other things.

Trump 'baby' to fly over London during president's visit
Mr Khan and Mr Trump have repeatedly clashed on Twitter , including in the aftermath of the London Bridge attack . Another protest organizer, Max Wakefield, says the GLA initially objected to the idea.

Trump once again directed his ridicule at Germany for its traditionally lower military budget in recent years.

He added that Trump hopes the meeting "can help reduce tensions and lead to constructive engagement that improves peace and security around the world because you can't solve problems if you're not talking about them", but said: "the ball really is in Russia's court". "And maybe your next big challenge is European citizens will need to work out who do they best feel protected by", the politician told EU bureaucrats. No, no. But I will tell you, the Secretary-General Stoltenberg is Trump's biggest fan.

She said she expected unanimous agreement among NATO's 29 members on proposals to reform the alliance command structure, increase readiness for possible threats from Russian Federation on NATO's eastern flank, add a new training mission for Iraq and increase counterterrorism efforts in Afghanistan. Germany is on the verge of doing so, now planning on reaching 1.5 percent of GDP by 2024, which constitutes an 80 percent increase in a decade, according to Defence Minister Ursula von der Leyen.

The conversation made no mention of rocket ships.

"The president's priority is to protect the American people and American interests, including those of our allies and partners", he said.

We will remind, the Deputy Minister of foreign Affairs Elena zerkal expects when meeting the US President Donald trump, and Vladimir Putin will discuss the issue of releasing Ukrainian political prisoners.
