Trump said that 23 of 28 member nations do not pay what they should for their defense and pointed out that the USA has spent more than all other member nations combined over the last eight years.

They spoke after Trump declined to pledge allegiance to Article 5 of the Nato treaty on mutual defence and complained that most allies were not spending enough. "Many of these nations owe massive amounts of money from past years", repeating a charge he had raised constantly on the campaign trail.

It was left to German Chancellor Angela Merkel, standing before a segment of the old Berlin Wall, to remind the audience that it's "not walls that will be successful, but open societies that are built on common values".

President Donald Trump speaks at NATO Headquarters in Brussels, May 25, 2017.

President Donald Trump's body language during his visit to Brussels on Thursday was about as subtle as a politician body slamming a reporter.

"Mr. Trump's repeated scolds are not just condescending but embarrassing".

"Terrorism must be stopped in its tracks, 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 English city that killed 22 people, including children. The EU has had strained relationship with Mr. Trump who supported Brexit and at one point expressed doubts about the EU and said countries would follow Britain in leaving the union.

The 28 member nations, plus soon-to-join Montenegro, will renew an old vow to move toward the 2 percent figure for defense by 2024.

Even when a moment created to affirm some of America's basic principles is dangled before him, President Donald Trump has a way of batting it aside.

May said she raised the leak issue with Trump and he "made clear that it was unacceptable". The attack, he said, "demonstrates the depths of the evil we face with terrorism".

Tusk also called for "Western values" to be promoted, challenging former tycoon Trump s world view that self-interested deals best settle global problems.

The White House has come under fire in recent days over revelations that Trump shared Israeli intelligence in a meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
