He formerly was a foreign correspondent for The New York Times and CBS News. Several previous presidents have softly raised the issue, but Trump was decidedly more direct.

"We Europeans must really take our destiny into our own hands, of course in friendship with the United States, in friendship with Great Britain, with other neighbours wherever possible, also with Russian Federation", she continued.

On Sunday, Merkel showed the gravity of her concern about Washington's dependability under Trump when she warned, at an election campaign event in a packed Bavarian beer tent - that the times when Europe could fully rely on others were "over to a certain extent".Those comments, which caused shock in Washington, vented Europe's frustration with Trump on climate policy in particular.

It remains to be seen whether Merkel's latest speech will produce a revolutionary impact on the strengthening of the European Union integration process in a more autonomous fashion or go down as an inconsequential moment during the electoral campaign in Germany. Macron wanted to get across that he would not be giving in on issues large or small.

While the depths of this damage may not be immediately apparent, it is no less profound. Moreover, Trump himself, at least in most of his public appearances, stuck largely to carefully telepromptered messages, though neutering even his more generous remarks by some of his off-prompter gestures.

"This is not fair to the people and taxpayers of the United States, and many of these nations owe massive amounts of money from past years", he added.

"I think those countries that will be the most concerned by Trump's failure to reaffirm Article Five will be those that are located slightly further east, that are also part of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation".

She recalled that the clause had only been triggered once, after the 9/11 attacks against the United States.

O'Neill feels Mexico defeat was 'excellent preparation' for Ireland
Mexico ended their preparation ahead of their World Cup Qualifiers against Honduras and the United States by defeating the Republic of Ireland 3-1 on Thursday.

Trump appears to have grasped none of these subtleties, his week going steadily downhill as he worked his way from a friendly reception in the Middle East to a borderline disaster in Western Europe. Another $10 billion of it will be spent on assimilation costs. A strong currency, such as the dollar, makes goods more expensive.

Spicer asserted that Trump views not just Germany, but the rest of Europe, as an important American allies.

If his speech in Berlin was any guide, Europeans also are big fans of his excoriating of Trump. Merkel asked as Trump sat stoically. "Very bad for US This will change", Trump tweeted.

Her comments came after Trump last week criticised major North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over their military spending and ruffled feathers by refusing to endorse a global climate change accord. "Or is a trusted and experienced face, including in relations with Trump, the right way to go?" "Terrible. We will stop this".

- Resume EU trade talks?

Germany's exasperation was laid bare after the G7 summit that wrapped up on Saturday with the USA refusing to sign up to upholding the 2015 Paris climate accord. Robert Menendez of New Jersey and Jack Reed of Rhode Island sent a letter to the White House saying that "leaving the Paris agreement would damage relationships with our allies and weaken American leadership on the global stage ... empowering sometimes adversarial nations like China".

Back home, at least among Trump's allies, reviews for his trip were better. As Nobel Peace Prize victor Elie Wiesel put it, "Friendship is never anything but sharing". Paramount among them is a single, simple lesson.
