Trump reverses himself on NATO, China, Russia and more

Trump reverses himself on NATO, China, Russia and more

Trump, unlike, say, Jeb (!) Bush, who had a long record of views on virtually every subject, could tailor his issue positions to what the voters wanted. I said it was obsolete.

"I like Steve, but you have to remember he was not involved in my campaign until very late", Trump said.

During a news conference alongside NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, Trump called NATO a "bulwark of worldwide peace and security" and reiterated that NATO members must "meet their financial obligations and pay what they owe".

A senior administration official - speaking as Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was in Moscow for hard talks on Syria - pointed the finger of blame at Russian Federation for an alleged coup attempt during October's election. Blaming the Syrian government of President Bashar al-Assad for it, the USA bombed an airbase used in the attack last week.

"What all these folks are doing is working toward what they believe is the president's agenda, not their own", Bossie said.

NCAA adopts early signing period, 10th coach for football
In a vote Friday, the NCAA's Division I Council gave the go-ahead for an early signing date in college football. FBS schools are allowed to hire a 10th assistant coach (beginning in January 2018).

US President Donald Trump pledged his full support to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, reaffirming Washington's commitment to the alliance and saying he no longer considers it "obsolete", a sharp reversal from his campaign trail remarks, the media reported.

Also, while NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg thanked Trump on Wednesday for his applying pressure on NATO countries to spend 2 percent of their GDP on defense, saying "we are already seeing the effect of your strong focus on the importance of fair burden-sharing in the alliance", Stoltenberg specified that the pledge to reach spending goals dates to 2014.

Trump and his supporters contend that while he's flexible, he's only modulating his position because he's getting what he truly wants.

Mr. Trump has repeatedly questioned Nato's objective, while complaining that the USA pays an unfair share of membership.

"This has built for a long period of time".

Iraqi Security Forces are "are advancing very carefully and cautiously in order to protect lives of civilian populations", he said on Thursday.

Despite the United States missile attack, the Trump administration maintains that tackling the Daesh terror group is on top of the agenda rather than taking on Assad.

Trump referred to the Syrian leader as a "butcher".

"We may be at an all-time low", Trump said of US-Russia relations Wednesday. The House and Senate also have ongoing probes into potential collusion between the Trump team and Russian Federation. Earlier this week, Trump publicly cut Bannon to size by telling a NY tabloid that the 2016 presidential election victory was entirely due to his (Trump's) strategic vision and Bannon was a latecomer to his campaign and is wrongly being given credit for the win.

The reversal follows Mr Trump's talks last week with Chinese President Xi Jinping. We see this commitment not only in words, but also in deeds. Michael Flynn was forced to resign on February 13 for contacts with Russia's ambassador to the United States before Trump took office, contacts which he misled the Vice President about.

And he told The Wall Street Journal in an interview published on Wednesday China will not be named a currency manipulator in a report due out in a few weeks because, he added, it has not been manipulating its currency in recent months and, critically, designating it as one could jeopardize its help discipline North Korea, a client state.

No plans for a federal Turkey: President Erdogan
Erdogan cited Germany's refusal to hand over Turkish citizens suspected of terrorism as a reason behind his refusal. Campaigning took place under a state of emergency imposed following last summer's failed military coup attempt.

"Both agree that we need a new world order that takes their interests into account more than it does right now, and both agree it's time to move away from a US-dominated global order", Stent said.
