Trump pushes aside Montenegro leader _ who calls it natural

Mr. Trump is not the only US president to urge allies to increase military spending, but he is the first to not explicitly commit to NATO's collective defense clause: "An attack on one is an attack on all". "For example I really think that by being vague about Article 5 Trump essentially killed the nuclear deterrent that the United States provides for Europe". "President Trump's failure to stand firmly behind that pledge is certain to worry our allies and embolden Vladimir Putin and others who want to see the alliance falter". He even took the chance to thank the leader of the free world for his support for Montenegro's membership in the alliance. In what may have been an attempt at Trump-friendly sloganeering, Stoltenberg summed up Article 5 by declaring, gamely, "All for one, and one for all!"

The President said others needed to comply with their financial obligations toward the Alliance in order to guarantee their common defence and accused 23 of NATO's 28 members of not paying their dues. "This is why we will indeed make our contribution to security", she said.

Joining the anti-ISIS fight "will send a strong political message of NATO's commitment to the fight against terrorism and also improve our coordination within the coalition", declared Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, according to the Associated Press (AP).

"Many of these countries owe massive amounts of money from past years", he said, adding that the target they had committed to - two per cent of each country's GDP to be spent on defence - was merely "the bare minimum".

Police search for armed man after Queensland officer shot dead near Brisbane
A resident and witness told the Courier Mail that the man ran on to a farm and into a container soon after killing the officer. Queensland Police Union president Ian Leavers said the officer was shot "simply trying to apprehend a wanted person".

"It is my great honor to be with the newly elected president of France, who ran an incredible campaign and had a tremendous victory", Trump said.

He later discussed the row with Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May, who had condemned the leaks that left British authorities infuriated with their United States counterparts. He did not make a point, as other presidents have, of endorsing Article 5 of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation charter, a pledge of mutual defense. During his campaign, Trump said he would cancel the climate agreement and stop all US payments to United Nations global warming programs.

Trump, on his first visit to Brussels, also said Germany was selling too many cars, had a visibly awkward handshake with the new French president, and pushed aside the Montenegrin leader at a joint photo.
