Trump returns home after overseas trip

Trump: My Trip Saved US Billions of Dollars, Millions of Jobs

Trump: My Trip Saved US Billions of Dollars, Millions of Jobs

Only five of NATO's 28 members meet the target: Britain, Estonia, debt-laden Greece, Poland and the United States, which spends more on defense than all the other allies combined.

US President Donald Trump ended his nine-day overseas journey on Saturday, addressing US troops at a campaign-style rally before leaving for the US.

And Trump's policy agenda has run into problems.

"It all fits with his strategic ambiguity approach to life", said Julianne Smith of the Centre for a New American Security.

And on NATO: "Other nations must pay more!"

President Donald Trump is in Taormina, Sicily for a second day of meetings with Group of Seven wealthy nation leaders.

But in the end, officials said, the result was better than they had feared.

The exit of the United States, the world's second-largest greenhouse-gas emitter after China, would not immediately dissolve the pact, which was negotiated under President Barack Obama and legally ratified past year. That followed a debate with Trump that German Chancellor Angela Merkel described as "very dissatisfying".

Trump also railed against Germany while overseas, denouncing on Friday the country's trade surplus with the USA and promising to end it. And on Russian Federation, he did not insist on removing - as some allies had feared - the threat of additional sanctions for Moscow's intervention in Ukraine. "My husband worked very hard on behalf of our country. Changing the infrastructure of global trade to tilt it back toward the US would save and create millions, easily", a White House official said, explaining the president's tweet. Most notably, soon after Trump touched down in Sicily for the final leg of his trip, news surfaced that the Federal Bureau of Investigation is now looking into the role his son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner held during the campaign and transition, including his contacts with Russian officials.

ANC denies party talks to oust Zuma
It also comes after a Cosatu May Day rally in Bloemfontein was called off after Zuma - who was the keynote speaker - was booed. Ntshalintshali said the committee did not discuss Dlamini's attendance at Zuma's birthday celebration.

This is the final day of Trump's first official trip overseas. He says there was no conscious decision for the president to not specifically endorse the "one for all, all for one" principle, which underpins the military alliance. Had great meetings on everything, especially on trade where.

Things started going downhill for Trump, though, in Rome.

Beyond the rhetoric, Trump's body language also confounded his hosts.

The video appears to show Trump push aside the Prime Minister of Montenegro, Dusko Markovic.

Trump is set to engage in discussions about the global economy and climate.

The macho posturing in Europe contrasted to the images, a few days earlier, of Trump and his team swaying, swords in hand, with the absolute rulers of Saudi Arabia at a lavish welcome ceremony given by King Salman.

Saving "many billions of dollars" likely refers to the arms deal Trump brokered with Saudi Arabia, which totaling close to $110 billion was one of the largest in history.

The President on the world stage, basking in high praise as he began his trip.

"The U.S.is now paying much more than any other nation, and that is not fair to the United States or the United States taxpayer".
