Trump says US committed to NATO's Article 5 on common defense

The pledge came as Trump accused James Comey of lying to Congress about their private exchanges.

But Trump did depart from orthodoxy on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation in one dimension, suggesting at the press conference on Friday that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation states should repay deficits in their spending from years past.

But Comey repeatedly refused to say in the Senate hearing whether he thought Trump had obstructed justice.

Trump will most likely be questioned about Thursday's testimony by former FBI Director James Comey. Asked if he would speak to the issue under oath, Trump said: "100 percent".

"I hardly know the man".

Texas family warns of 'dry drowning' after child dies
Baby Frankie's mother, Tara Delgado, told WPVI news that they immediately called 911, but paramedics were unable to revive him. Almost a week later, Frankie complained one evening that his shoulders hurt, later waking up in the middle of the night.

Jorge Benitez, a NATO specialist at the Atlantic Council, said Trump's statement was less than a whole-hearted commitment.

He said that he'd carefully documented his interactions with Trump because he anxious Trump would misrepresent them, and accused the administration of spreading "lies, plain and simple" about the reasons for his firing.

The president had previewed his attacks against Comey in an early-morning tweet that broke his previous day's silence on his favorite social media megaphone.

"I'd be glad to tell him exactly what I just told you", Trump said. During Comey's testimony, the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director said, "Lordy, I hope there are tapes!" arguing that such recordings would back up his version of events.

He later said reporters were "going to be very disappointed when you hear the answer".

"No collusion, no obstruction, he's a leaker", Trump said during a Rose Garden news conference, knocking Comey for disseminating the content of a memo he kept on a dinner he had with the President. After reporters pressed again, Trump said he would disclose that "in a very short period of time". "For many Russians, they just don't believe that Russia is that influential in other countries' politics".

The two presidents "agreed on the importance of all countries implementing the agreements reached in Riyadh to fight terrorism, counter extremism, and stop the funding of terrorist groups", the White House said in a statement.

This proves for the 8,457 time why Trump doesn't need to be on Twitter.
