Moscow said it sees the USA as "partners" and hopes to use the summit to improve bilateral relations with Washington. He then stunned allies by telling them to eventually double the figure to a punishing four percent.

First on Trump's agenda was a breakfast with the NATO Secretary General and before the food even came out, Trump was ranting about how the US funds the protection of all the other NATO countries. He said the allies had confirmed their intention to meet the goal of 2 per cent by 2024 and no more.

President Trump will now head to the United Kingdom, where mass protests are expected to greet him as he arrives for his first visit to the country as president this afternoon.

Trump himself accused Germany of being a "captive" of Russian Federation due to a multi-billion-dollar pipeline deal, complaining that Germany and other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies "pay only a fraction" of the cost of defending Europe.

Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.) also called for the cancellation of the meeting, saying that Trump "cannot claim to love the US while meeting with. a man who is overseeing an all-out attack on America's democracy".

"I told people that I would be very unhappy if they didn't up their commitments", an ebullient president told reporters after the second day of the Brussels meeting, when North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders huddled with Trump to try to defuse a crisis.

"I let them know that I was extremely unhappy", he said, but added that the talks had ended on the best of terms: "It all came together at the end".

NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg took a more diplomatic approach on the spending row, saying that Trump was having an "impact" while refusing to confirm any increase beyond what was agreed in the statement.

Trump is reported to have spoken of "grave consequences" if allies did not meet their 2 percent of GDP defense spending targets, saying that the United States could "go our own way" if his demands were not met. Some NATO allies had not exactly heard the same conclusions as Trump around the table, and French President Emmanuel Macron immediately poured cold water on Trump's spending ambitions for other allies.

President Andrzej Duda played down the severity of divisions between Trump and other North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members at a two-day summit in Brussels, saying the important thing for Poland is that new commitments have been made to secure the region that lies close to Russian Federation.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says that Russian intelligence agents stole information on 500,000 USA voters after hacking a state US election board. President Trump himself should be the one to bring this message to Putin.

He also said meeting the queen would be an experience Trump "will really cherish".

United States to move forward on US$200b China tariff list
Some companies had successfully lobbied to get their products excluded from an earlier list of United States tariffs. Meanwhile, US Senator Orrin Hatch, Chairman of the Senate Finance Committee called the move "reckless".

Mr Trump fuelled a fire by appearing to criticise prime minister Theresa May's Brexit plan, after the resignation of foreign secretary Boris Johnson and her minister in charge of the European Union exit, David Davis. She wanted to go a different route.
