(SOUNDBITE) (English) UNITED STATES PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP SAYING: "I'm not going to let people take advantage of American companies because if anyone's going to take advantage of American companies it's going to be us, it's not going to be France.

Trump also lashed out at his European allies before the summit, singling out Germany for low defense spending, and Macron for - quote - 'nasty' comments about NATO's so-called 'brain death'.
