Trump: Germany 'captive' to Russia after pipeline deal




President Donald Trump launched a sharp public attack on Germany on Wednesday (July 11) for supporting a Baltic Sea gas pipeline deal with Russia, saying Berlin had become "a captive to Russia".

He went on to criticize Germany for failing to raise defense spending more. Trump, meeting reporters with NATO Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg, before a NATO summit in Brussels, said it was "very inappropriate" that the United States was paying for European defense against Russia while Berlin, the biggest European economy, was supporting gas deals with Moscow. Trump was due to meet German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the summit later in the day and will meet Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on Monday (July 16).
