  • NATO Braces For Trump, White House Says Business As Usual

Recall that in mid-June, the American edition Buzzfeed, citing diplomatic sources reported that in the course of G7 summit in Canada, trump said other world leaders that he believes the Russian Crimea, since the Peninsula's population speaks Russian.

At the G20 summit in Germany past year, Trump and Putin and spoke privately for over two hours accompanied only by translators, former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, and Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.

Trump has long admired Putin, and believes the USA and Russian Federation can be allies, according to multiple reports on his attitude toward Putin and his regime.

Much, of course, depends on the president's mood, which is rarely good during global conferences where he bristles at what he considers the unfair economic and security alliances the United States constructed in the wake of WWII and the Cold War.

America's partners are particularly concerned about a surprise Trump giveaway during his meeting with Putin: announcing a withdrawal of significant Americans troops from Europe, cutting defence funds to US European Command, or stopping exercises with Nato's easternmost members, which Russian Federation protests as "provocative". A vague promise in a joint communique to work toward denuclearization on the Korean Peninsula was hailed by Trump as having ended North Korea's nuclear threat, although recent reports have indicated that Pyongyang has continued to expand its nuclear weapons capabilities. "It's not, sort of, a policy statement or, as one person described it, a press release".

European allies may be less anxious about how Trump might behave in Brussels than about what he could say or do in his meeting with Putin, whose approval he so appears to crave.

Thomas Carothers of the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, said Putin "will enjoy the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit from the perspective that it embodies further division and fragmentation".

The two ambassadors laid out a preliminary schedule for Trump's travels.

In addition to that there is a sense of anxiety about Trump's relation with Russian Federation. On Putin's wish list: an end to USA military exercises in Europe and the scaling back of US forces there. USA officials said the two sides this time would be discussing Russian election meddling, Russia's incursions in the Ukraine and involvement in Syria.
