Trump arrives in London to participate in the NATO summit

The president of the United States, Donald Trump, arrived in London on Monday to participate until Wednesday at the NATO summit on the occasion of his 70th anniversary and to hold several bilateral meetings with other world leaders.

The Air Force One landed at about 22.00 GMT at the London Stansted Airport, north of the British capital, from where Trump and his wife, Melania Trump, were transferred to Winfield House, the residence of the US ambassador in London located in the downtown Regent's Park

This Tuesday, Trump will have a first meeting with NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg at Winfield House before meeting in the afternoon with the President of France, Emmanuel Macron.

Trump insists that NATO members make greater contributions to the organization and meet 2% of their GDP by 2024 while Macron wants to go further and ensure that there is a clear strategy and the goal of guaranteeing peace and stability in Europe against the terrorist threat.

On the flight to London, Trump said on his Twitter account that before he was elected president, a few countries fulfilled their financial obligations, but since he took office, more nations have increased their contributions and NATO has increased spending by 130 billion dollars (118,209 million euros).

On Tuesday, Donald and Melania Trump will move to Buckingham Palace to participate in the reception that Queen Elizabeth II will offer to welcome the leaders who will participate in this summit, with which they will remember the founding of the Atlantic Alliance to guarantee the European and North American security after World War II.
