I'm confident that we can eventually fix the damage President Trump is doing to the nation.
"It will become increasingly hard to justify to American citizens why some countries continue to fail to meet our shared collective security commitments", Trump said in a letter addressed to Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg seen by Bloomberg News.
The first signs of this nervousness took place with President Trump's speech in Montana this week.
"Instead of viewing it that way, he views it as "The U.S. has been played"...and it's always this 'They're laughing at us, '" he added.
The G-7 world leaders' meeting in Canada last month ended in tumult when Trump suddenly retracted his endorsement of the group's final joint statement after his departure and railed against Trudeau by midflight tweet en route to Singapore for his summit with Kim, a meeting that critics said legitimized Kim on the world stage without securing a clear pathway to the denuclearization.
The Russian president complains to Trump about "fake news" and laments that the US foreign policy establishment - the "deep state", in Putin's words - is conspiring against them, the first senior USA official said. Germany has kept defense spending at just 1.2 percent of GDP in recent years. Separately, doubts about Trump's commitment to European security have pushed EU leaders to boost defense cooperation.

German Defense Minister Ursula von der Leyen on Friday told Bloomberg TV that the summit must show unity, warning that "our opponents would be delighted if there is a division in NATO".
The president and his top aides have given few signs that he intends to moderate his tough love rhetoric and demands for America's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies or that he plans to deliver ultimatums to the Russian president about meddling in future American elections or giving up the Crimea region of Ukraine he seized in 2014. While these countries have been increasing their contributions since I took office, they must do much more.
