Trump talks up trip before returning to controversy in Washington

Melania was there to hear her husband give a historic speech on fighting terrorism, accompanied him to Israel, and even was able to meet Pope Francis.

He also visited United States troops stationed at the Sigonella Air Base in Italy. "I want to take a small moment to thank you all for the sacrifices you make on behalf of our country".

In a third tweet, the president said he had no doubt he'll return to the USA loaded with "hundreds of billions of dollars". "We will win", he said.

His body language on the trip demonstrated his typically brash behaviour, dramatised by his demands that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies pay more for their defence and his refusal to explicitly declare that the United States backs Article 5 of the alliance's charter, which requires each member to come to the defence of each other.

"The president does not like having large trade deficits", top economic adviser Gary Cohn said at a news conference at the close of the summit.

President Donald Trump is in Taormina, Sicily for a second day of meetings with Group of Seven wealthy nation leaders. Money is starting to pour in, " Trump said, echoing an earlier tweet on the subject. Trump also failed to mention Russian Federation, which remains NATO's raison d'etre in the eyes of most Europeans.

Trump's rally on Saturday was full of his campaign rally theatrics with Marine One taxiing to the terminal as the theme song for "Air Force One" played in the background and the audience of hundreds of service members and their families looked on.

At a Group of Seven summit in the resort town of Taormina on the island of Sicily, Trump refused to entreaties from the other six allies to maintain US support for the Paris climate agreement, insisting he needed more time to make up his mind.

The use of a golf cart didn't appear to help Donald Trump much in keeping up with the fellow G7 leaders this weekend.

This is the final day of Trump's first official trip overseas. "I can think of no better way to conclude our first foreign trip than to spend the time with you right here".

The president's trip has largely gone off without a major misstep, with the administration touting the president's efforts to birth a new coalition to fight terrorism, while admonishing partners in an old alliance to pay their fair share.

Kushner's lawyers have said he will cooperate with the newly appointed special counsel.
