Once again, pResident tRump is meeting with our allies in NATO, and seemingly trying his best to piss them off. Putin couldn't have dreamed how well this is working out for Russia, as tRump works to create discord in this important bloc against our cold war foe.

At a breakfast yesterday, he lit into Germany for buying oil from Russia.
The Republican president, in Brussels for the NATO summit, took a swipe at Germany for supporting a new pipeline for Russian gas, saying at a pre-summit meeting: “We’re supposed to be guarding against Russia and Germany goes out and pays billions and billions of dollars a year to Russia.”

He also said that Germany was "captive" to Russia, which begs the question: Aren't we - by the same token - captive to Canada?

tRump also complained that fellow NATO members aren't paying their obligations of 2% of GDP, and wanted them to pay closer to 4%. However, they aren't supposed to be paying that much until 2024. Small detail the Dumbass-in-Chief overlooked.

Today, Macron apparently upset tRump by saying everything had gone smoothly the day before. Really?... tRump is upset about that?
NATO officials said Trump was furious over media coverage suggesting that the first day of the summit had proceeded calmly, and that he had demanded to hold a press conference immediately after the morning meeting.

At that press conference, tRump didn't confirm his earlier threats to leave NATO
U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to break with NATO and conduct American security unilaterally — if allies do not immediately meet higher military spending targets, NATO officials and diplomats said.

[...]

Later at a press conference, Trump did not respond to a question about whether he had threatened to pull the U.S. out of NATO. Instead, he answered another part of the question, which asked if he could pull out without congressional approval. He said: “I think I can.”

It was at that press conference where things took a turn for the weird:
One reporter asked the president if he would perhaps change his mind about the demand for immediate spending hikes once he boarded his plane and had time to reflect, but Trump insisted he would not.

“Oh, that’s other people that do that,” Trump said. “I’m very consistent. I’m a very stable genius.”

So he won't be tweeting later that he's threatening to leave NATO? r-i-i-g-h-t....
