European allies see the two sides of Trump

European allies see the two sides of Trump”

President Donald Trump is back at the White House after his first overseas trip.

"The first lady held her husband's hand as they made their way to Air Force One in Italy on Saturday after addressing USA military personnel at a naval base", the Mail reported.

The nine-day trip took him to Saudi Arabia, Israel, the Palestinian territories, the Vatican, Belgium and Italy, meeting with world leaders.

Trump's third and final session at the summit will be a closed meeting with seven heads of state. He will be seated between the leaders of Niger and Tunisia, according to White House Chief Economic Adviser Gary Cohn.

He also visited United States troops stationed at the Sigonella Air Base in Italy.

"A very proud nation salutes you", he said.

Knowing the president's receptivity to flattery, the Saudis pulled out all the stops and gave Trump a red-carpet welcome, a horse-borne escort on his trip to the royal palace and a lavish party that included a traditional sword dance. 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.

The first lady also thanked the service members for sacrificing on behalf of the U.S. She says it's because of their "selfless commitment" and the sacrifices their families make that Americans are able to enjoy many freedoms.

The president tweeted that he'll make a final decision next week on whether the USA will stay in the Paris climate agreement.

Trump also said the United States was "behind North Atlantic Treaty Organisation all the way".

Russian Federation has continued to support the Syrian regime of Bashar al-Assad, separatist rebels in Eastern Ukraine, and in recent months alone it has brazenly interfered in US and French presidential elections.

The president supports ongoing efforts to push member countries to spend at least 2 percent of their gross domestic product on defense.

Trump is meeting with leaders from the G-7 nations in Sicily.

Within minutes of wrapping up his speech in an aircraft hangar, he climbed aboard Air Force One and was quickly airborne for the 10-hour flight home, his nine-day inaugural foreign trip done.

The G-7 includes the U.S., Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan, and the United Kingdom. The White House is also assembling a team of lawyers to protect the President from potential legal troubles.

The trip has gone off without a major misstep, with the administration touting the president's efforts to create a new coalition to fight terrorism while admonishing partners in an old alliance to pay their fair share.

Kushner's multiple roles in Trump's campaign and his contacts with Russian officials adds a new, increasingly personal dynamic to the federal probe for Trump: touching not only a member of his senior White House staff for the first time since Flynn was sacked, but also a member of his family.
