As many as 33% of those surveyed said they had positive expectations from the summit, while one percent said that, the outcome of the highly-talked about event would be negative for Russian Federation. Trump has said the US nuclear capability needs renewing. It reflects the the percentage of each country's national defense budgets and nothing else.
The forum, which includes Britain, Canada, France, Germany, Italy, Japan and the United States, is now called the Group of Seven.
"It will become increasingly hard to justify to American citizens why some countries continue to fail to meet our shared collective security commitments", Trump said in a letter addressed to Norwegian Prime Minister Erna Solberg seen by Bloomberg News.
They might want to increase spending for their own reasons, but they can't do it in a way that it looks like they're responding to Trump. Any more than it'll stop him from doing any other thing.
I'll leave it to special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to say whether there are sinister motives for Trump's consistent willingness to look past Putin's many transgressions - to name a few, Putin's attempts to subvert Western democracies, including ours; his illegal annexation of Crimea; his human rights violations and muzzling of free speech, including the press; and his alleged assassinations of dissidents overseas, including an attempt to kill a former intelligence agent in Britain with a Soviet-era nerve agent.

"He's mainly anxious about our allies taking advantage of us".
Trump had also invited Putin to the White House, which would be the first such visit since 2005, Kremlin aide Yury Ushakov said to Russian journalists in April.
