Trump is expected to discuss China, Russia challenges with NATO leaders next week
President Donald Trump is set to meet with representatives of at least a dozen nations, including Germany, France, Italy and Denmark, at the North Atlantic Treaty Organization’s 70th anniversary meeting in London next week, CNBC reports.
Senior Trump administration officials told reporters Friday that the American president is also expected to stress the ongoing challenges that NATO and the international community face from China and Russia, two nations that have become inextricably tangled up in Trump’s domestic political battles.
“There are continuing challenges that NATO needs to face, China above all,” one official said in a conference call.
The Trump administration also expects that NATO’s relationship with Russia “will certainly come up,” an official said.
