NY Times rips Trump over 'embarrassing' North Atlantic Treaty Organisation speech

28 May 2017

The group photograph was taken after Trump had delivered a haranguing speech, giving a stern warning to fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation heads of state to contribute their fair share to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and to step up efforts to secure their borders against infiltration by ISIS terrorists.

"Terrorism must be stopped or ... the horror you saw in Manchester and so many other places will continue forever", Trump said, referring to Monday's suicide bombing in the northern English city that killed 22 people, including children.

Trump irritated European Union leaders during his election campaign a year ago by hailing Brexit and suggesting other countries might follow Britain out of the 28-nation bloc. Regarding climate change, Mr. Macron said he respected the fact that Mr. Trump had reviewed the Paris agreement, adding, "No hasty decision should be taken on this subject by the United States". The Montenegrin prime minister was at first startled when Trump shoved him aside from behind.

Trump had earlier met Emmanuel Macron, France's new president, in Brussels on Thursday.

Montenegro, a nation of 600,000 people, is set to become Nato's 29th member on June 5, the third former Yugoslav republic to join the alliance after Slovenia and Croatia.

President Donald Trump might have once supported the British decision to leave the European Union, but he is now seemingly anxious about the impact of Brexit for USA workers.

Mr. Trump discussed foreign policy, security, climate and trade relations with the EU, Mr. Tusk told reporters.

Finally, as aghast fellow leaders whispered amongst themselves, Trump blasted them for owing "massive amounts of money", leaving allies back in the uncertain space they were previous year. "Should the president abdicate both, no one would be happier than Vladimir Putin", The Times concluded.

"The question of the day is what on earth happened?"

Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg said that joining the US -led anti-Islamic State coalition "will send a strong political message of NATO's commitment to the fight against terrorism and also improve our coordination within the coalition".

The difference in tone could hardly be clearer however with the opening leg of Trump's tour in Saudi Arabia. Some did as Trudeau requested, but Trump did not raise his arm.

Anne Applebaum, a visiting professor at the LSE Institute of Global Affairs, tweeted that it was "very striking that Trump made a point of "not lecturing" the Saudis, and then arrived in Brussels and lectured Europeans".
