"It defies logic that Putin did not know of this and that Putin did not approve of it", he said.

Pelosi asked reporters on Capitol Hill, adding that "there is no way to explain the disrespect" to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies or the "lack of understanding" that Putin does not hold USA interests at heart.

A federal grand jury on Friday alleged that officers of Russia's military intelligence agency, the GRU, secretly monitored computers and stole data from the campaign of Trump's former rival, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump has taken an aggressive tone during the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, questioning the value of an alliance that has defined decades of American foreign policy, torching an ally and proposing a massive increase in European defence spending.

Macron however added that he thought North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was now "much stronger" and dismissed reports that Trump had threatened to pull the United States out of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation if the spending row was not resolved.

U.S. President Donald Trump Thursday claimed he had made victories over burden sharing and defense spending during the summit of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), though reports from inside the NATO headquarters in Brussels suggested chaos and turmoil.

"It's a big F-U from [special prosecutor Robert] Mueller", a White House official told Politico, adding that it "wasn't an accident" that the indictments were announced before the Helsinki summit. Then he accused nations of failing to meet their spending target of 2 percent of their GDP.

He had thrown the summit into crisis by demanding countries meet a spending target of 2 per cent of gross domestic product immediately, instead of by 2024, and to eventually double spending to 4 per cent.

Others in the room, including the Lithuanian president whose country is among the most nervous of Russian ambitions, denied a suggestion that Trump had threatened to quit the alliance.

US President Donald Trump said he is now "very, very happy" because North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies allegedly pledged to increase defence spending to levels "never seen before", despite reports to the contrary.

Trump said he "probably" had the power to unilaterally take the US out of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation if he wanted to, without the approval of the US Congress.

Member nations agree to specific targets for military spending, though the dollar amounts - and total percentage of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation budget - vary depending on their size.

"All allies are increasing defense spending".

Browder worked with Congress to get the Magnitsky Act passed, preventing foreigners who violate human rights from entering the U.S. He once ran one of the largest foreign investment funds in Russian companies from 1996-2006. Trump tweeted on Thursday morning before the second day of talks.

John McCain, R-Arizona, said Mr. Trump should cancel the meeting if he will not hold Putin accountable.

"I think it really hurts our country", Trump said at a news conference in Britain after meeting with Prime Minister Theresa May. I don't think. But you never know what happens. "So I would imagine that's what they will do, but maybe they will take a little bit of a different route".
