Emmanuel Macron Swerves Donald Trump To Hug Angela Merkel Instead

A giant of an American political figure visiting Europe: charismatic and charming with a thorough grasp of worldwide affairs, totally relaxed with the huge crowd around him. And improve coordination within the Coalition.

Surely there was irony to be found in the sound of the military flypast and marching band, part of the orchestrated pomp and circumstance as the alliance proudly took possession of the curved glass and steel building meant to send out a message of a new unified future.

Russian political analyst Vladimir Bychkov suggested that in the current configuration of the alliance North Atlantic Treaty Organisation will keep continue transmitting messages and orders sent by the U.S., the leader of the bloc.

Furthermore, according to Trump's statements at the summit, North Korea remains one of the most global problems.

The differences are well-known: climate change, trade and migration threaten to throw a summit of the Group of Seven wealthy democracies off its consensus game, with President Donald Trump cast as the spoiler-in-chief.

White House spokesman Sean Spicer later told reporters that spots for the "family photo" for which the leaders were preparing were predetermined, as is usually the case - implying that Trump was not trying to get a better position, The Washington Post reported, but rather that he was heading for the position reserved for him. He noted that the alliance will support all efforts to enable the implementation of the Minsk agreements. "And I am not 100 percent sure that we can say today - "we" means Mr. President and myself - that we have a common position, common opinions about Russian Federation", said Tusk.

Trump announced a review of the "deeply troubling" leaks and warned that those responsible could face prosecution, the White House said. To some extent, that's true.

Trump appeared to be much more friendly and relaxed among Saudi Arabian and other Gulf leaders than with our European allies. "There was only a little hope of US-Russia normalization and constructive dialogue after his election", Bychkov noted.

Montenegrin radio station Antena M included a photo of Trump above the story with the words "Days without being a national embarrassment: 0".

Video of the incident spread on social networks in multiple languages.

In talks before a summit of NATO leaders at the Atlantic military alliance's headquarters across town, an European Union source said Trump had also voiced fears that Brexit could cost U.S.jobs - a possible sign of second thoughts on support for the British vote to leave which stunned the bloc.

"America First!" cried one CNN affiliate in the region, while Montenegro's Vijesti newspaper said Trump purposely "removed" Markovic to hog the limelight.
