INTERVIEW – Dr. Sebastian Gorka – Fox News national security strategist, NYT Bestseller author of “Defeating Jihad” – discussed NATO summit
- NATO SUMMIT: President Trump is in Brussels for the two-day NATO summit. Trump took issue with the U.S. protecting Germany when the European nation is making energy deals with Russia – an arrangement, he said, is not in U.S. interests. “We’re supposed to protect you against Russia and yet you make this deal with Russia. You tell me, how appropriate is that?”
- UK TRIP: TRUMP HEADS TO UK THURSDAY AFTERNOON: The US president will fly into London following a Nato summit in Brussels on Thursday afternoon. He will travel straight to Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire, where Theresa May will host Mr Trump and his wife Melania for a black-tie dinner with 100 guests and ministers. The evening will start with a military ceremony in the palace’s Great Court performed by the bands of the Scots, Irish and Welsh guards. On Friday, Mr Trump and Mrs May will visit a defence site to watch a demonstration of the UK’s military capabilities and “integrated US military training”. They will then travel to the Prime Minister’s country home Chequers for bilateral talks on a range of foreign policy issues including trade.
