Trump says North Atlantic Treaty Organisation 'no longer obsolete'

McCain blasts Russia over spreading influence in Balkans

Russian Federation has vetoed a UN Security Council resolution demanding a swift investigation into the attack.

Trump had previously questioned NATO's relevance.

The meeting and press conference mark an important opportunity for the president, as it they will him a chance to reorient himself to the alliance that he called "obsolete" during the 2016 campaign.

Trump said it's "possible" but "unlikely" Russian Federation did not know Assad's team was prepping that gas attack on Syrian citizens.

When asked about whether his opinion on Russian Federation leader Vladimir Putin has changed, Trump responded "We're going to see about that".

Washington responded to the suspected chemical attack by targeting a Syrian air based with a barrage of cruise missiles in an operation that incensed Moscow. Trump called Syrian President Bashar al-Assad "a butcher". Its involvement in that war came after the United States invoked NATO's Article 5, the provision calling for collective defense, after the September 11, 2001 terror attacks.

Choi was allegedly meddling in state affairs without holding any official post, and helping to extort money from big corporations. Nearby, 77-year-old Park Seong-woo said that prosecutors and the court have done the right thing to do.

Trump's approval comes on the eve of his meeting with Nato Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg at the White House.

"We're very concerned about Russian interference in the October elections in Montenegro, including credible reports of Russian support for an election-day attack on the government", a senior White House official told reporters.

"I have said it was obsolete".

The decision had largely been expected, despite Trump's sometimes mercurial decision-making and harsh words for the military alliance.

Members of the Trump administration join the media for a Newseum forum on the First Amendment. Just the USA and a handful of other countries are meeting the target.

On Wednesday, the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation secretary general agreed that other allied nations needed to pay more, telling reporters at the press conference that all nations need to contribute their fair share in the name of security.

President Donald Trump is saying he may reshuffle some of his major domestic priorities. He also gave credit to Trump for bringing the issue into focus. "It's very bad for this world", Trump told Fox Business News. That's despite an ongoing impasse between GOP hardliners and moderates. "P$3 artially that's my fault because people have confidence in me", Trump said. President Xi wants to do the right thing.

Without spending cuts in the health care bill, it's much harder for Republicans to cut taxes without adding to federal deficits.

"Putin is backing a person that's truly an evil person", the president said this week in an interview with the Fox Business Network.

Trump says China's long history with North Korea complicates China's ability to crack down on the North's nuclear program. Such collaboration, he said, could help the two sides later address "more serious problems". "I think it's wonderful that they abstained", he said.

Trump said he had already jumped major hurdles in the campaign by that time, beating "all the senators and all the governors" before he met Bannon.

But Spicer said "going in and occupying Syria for the express goal of regime change is something the president has been very clear on".

Russian Federation partly to blame for Syria attack, future can't include Assad: Trudeau
In a gesture weighted with symbolism, Tillerson visited the site of a World War II-era Nazi massacre in central Italy on Monday. Tillerson accompanied Alfano to Santa'Anna di Stazzema, where 560 civilians, including some 130 children, were killed in 1944.

"We are not here to stand on ceremony, but to develop real strategies", he said. "We are going to see how that all works out".
