Trump touches down in Britain ahead of crunch NATO summit

Donald Trump has touched down in the UK ahead of a two-day NATO summit that will see members at loggerheads with each other.

He will join other NATO leaders in London on Tuesday as the world’s biggest military alliance marks its 70th birthday.

Experts say that with arguments over military spending and NATO’s purpose in the air, the 29 NATO allies are approaching this meeting “with a sense of foreboding”.

Thousands of troops stand ready along Europe’s eastern flank to deter President Vladimir Putin – but France’s President Macron fears terrorism is the greatest threat to the group and Turkey is buying missiles from Russia.

The summit will include receptions at Buckingham Palace and Downing Street and a working session at a golf resort in outer London.
