However on trade, Trump bowed to pressure from allies to retain a pledge to fight protectionism.
But when Trump spoke, he sounded like anything but a typical USA president. His global tour had been capped off by the G7 summit in Brussels and Sicily, Italy. Standing alongside his counterparts, the president effectively accused countries who do not meet NATO's goal of spending 2 percent of their gross domestic product of sponging off American taxpayers. The U.S. inked a $110 billion arms sale to Saudi Arabia and unveiled numerous business commitments in the region, though the White House never provided specific details about the scope of the agreements.
The official, who requested anonymity, added that the trip had "left no one with any doubt about who America's friends are". "Hard work but big results!" That followed a debate with Trump that German Chancellor Angela Merkel described as "very dissatisfying".
At a press conference a few days ago, the House minority leader also criticized Trump's choice for the first country to visit, according to cnsnews.com, saying, "I thought it was unusual for the President of the United States to go to Saudi Arabia first". In 2006, even as the United States was increasing military spending because of the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, European allies were shrinking their military spending.Indeed, NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg underscored to journalists Thursday that NATO's European members have halted a long-term slide in military spending and registered an overall increase in defense budgets previous year. The NATO summit comes as reports surface that British police are withholding intelligence from the U.S. after leaks to the media about the Manchester bombing investigation, and weeks after Trump revealed highly classified information to the Russians about operations against the Islamic State.This story will be updated as new information becomes available.Citing evidence of Russia's "success" at "keeping us off balance at a low cost to them", Lindley-French says the U.S. and Europe would do well to settle the differences causing friction within the Alliance so they can unite to confront the new-era challenges already rattling their societies.The search for a new Federal Bureau of Investigation director continues. "Merkel's comments are an acknowledgement of that new reality".
Still, there was irritation at Trump's refusal to show his hand on the Paris agreement to curb carbon emissions.
Whether or not Trump will sign on to a new Twitter strategy remains to be seen-but it does seem like an unlikely shift to many.

Trump Meets With Israel's PM Netanyahu
During his visit, Trump is expected to make a push to relaunch long-stalled peace talks between Israel and the Palestinians. President Donald Trump said Tuesday that peace between Israel and the Palestinians is "possible".
France's Le Monde newspaper said: "During this visit, President Trump maintained his line 'America First, ' refusing to take a step to improve U.S".
Daniela Schwarzer, research director at the German Council of Foreign Relations in Berlin, said the trip had confirmed Trump's "zero-sum game" view of the world in which you are either a victor or a loser and relationships are transactional.
Addressing U.S. troops Saturday at a Sicilian air base moments before departing for Washington, Trump himself declared: "I think we hit a home run".
"The president's failure to endorse Article 5 in a speech at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation headquarters, his continued lambasting of Germany and other allies on trade, his apparent decision to walk away from the Paris climate agreement - all suggest that the United States is less interested in leading globally than has been the case for the lat 70 years".

European leaders and officials complained to the media that Trump and his advisers were ignorant of basic facts, notably on transatlantic trade.
