Trump Europe Trip - Giuliani Thinks London Mayor Should Be “Ashamed Of Himself”

The First Couple is getting ready for a trip to Europe. President Donald Trump and First Lady Melania Trump will spend two days in Brussels for a NATO summit and several bilateral meetings with other world leaders, half a day in London for a visit that will be filled with protests, three days in Scotland for what is mostly a private vacation and a day in Helsinki (Finland) where Mr Trump will have a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">&quot;My concern is [Pres. Trump will] continue to stir the pot with NATO, undermine the credibility of our commitment to mutual security… and then go to Helsinki for a summit with Putin where I&#39;m very concerned about what things he might give away,&quot; Sen. Coons tells <a href="">@FaceTheNation</a> <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; CBS News (@CBSNews) <a href="">July 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

After his arrival and welcoming by the Belgian government on Tuesday, President Donald Trump will be meeting with NATO Secretary-General Mr Jens Stoltenberg before several meetings with the 28 NATO allies on Wednesday.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">The United States is spending far more on NATO than any other Country. This is not fair, nor is it acceptable. While these countries have been increasing their contributions since I took office, they must do much more. Germany is at 1%, the U.S. is at 4%, and NATO benefits…….</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="">July 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

The U.S. ambassador to NATO, Ms Kay Bailey Hutchison: "Our major areas of deterrence would be Russia and the malign activities of Russia, the efforts of Russia to divide our democratic nation, INF Treaty violations."

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">…Europe far more than it does the U.S. By some accounts, the U.S. is paying for 90% of NATO, with many countries nowhere close to their 2% commitment. On top of this the European Union has a Trade Surplus of $151 Million with the U.S., with big Trade Barriers on U.S. goods. NO!</p>&mdash; Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) <a href="">July 9, 2018</a></blockquote>

Many European heads of state fear that Mr Trump will also want to make sure they are upping their defense spending, something he pointed out to them last time he was in Brussels as well.


The UK visit is a delayed one which is highly important for the British government desperately in need of a trade agreement with the US as the Brexit deadline looms.

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">Rudy Giuliani to <a href=";ref_src=twsrc%5Etfw">#London</a> mayor: Stop attacking Trump and &#39;do your job&#39;<a href=""></a></p>&mdash; O. Bula Escobar (@omarbula) <a href="">July 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

However, it is flushed with scandal after London Mayor Mr Sadiq Khan allowed a giant blimp depicting Mr Trump as a baby to be flown over the capital as well as several protests to be organized during the visit.

Related coverage:

Mr Trump’s lawyer and the former Mayor of New York, Mr Rudy Giuliani commented: “Sadiq Khan should be ashamed of himself. He's so busy attacking President Trump's visit and, in the meantime, crime is spiralling in London. Maybe he should just do his job instead of attacking a world leader.”

<blockquote class="twitter-tweet" data-lang="en"><p lang="en" dir="ltr">“The whole thing is a disgrace.” -<a href="">@Nigel_Farage</a> on London Mayor Sadiq Khan approving ‘Trump baby’ blimp <a href=""></a></p>&mdash; FOX &amp; friends (@foxandfriends) <a href="">July 8, 2018</a></blockquote>

Furthermore, Mr Giuliani stated that the great number of Americans visiting London each year will be put off by this action.

Related coverage:

“Many people who come to London are Americans. More than half of us in the US now support the President and even those who don't support him, support his office. I would not like to go to a country where someone with the authority of a mayor was rallying people against them. It's highly inappropriate. He's probably suffering from some of the criticisms that President Trump has made of him, which are valid.”


The First Couple then heads off to Aberdeen, Scotland for what is mostly seen as a private vacation and some rounds of golf.


The last round of Mr Trump’s trip takes him to Helsinki, Finland, where he will have a long-awaited meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
