In Brussels, activists oppose the participation of US President Donald Trump in the NATO summit. This is reported by the Associated Press.

According to the agency, the march "Trump is not welcome here" as well as the the concert took place at the streets of the Belgian capital. In addition, the protest was joined by activists advocating the closure of coal and nuclear power plants, against racism and sexism and against austerity measures.

We remind you that earlier Donald Trump accused NATO allies of not investing enough in general security, and demanded to increase defense spending. Protesters call for reducing military budgets and redirecting funds to the development of the education system and renewable energy.

Earlier we reported that the leadership of NATO fears that US President Donald Trump during his meeting with President of Russia Vladimir Putin can come to a number of agreements that bypass the interests of the Alliance. This was stated by coordinator of the ruling coalition of Germany on transatlantic cooperation Peter Beyer in an interview for the newspaper Funke Mediengruppe, reports Reuters.

According to Beyer, there is growing concern among members of the Alliance over possible cooperation between the US and Russia.

"We in the alliance feel growing concern about the agreements that can be reached at the meeting between Trump and Putin," he said.

He noted that the rest of NATO members were not involved in the planning of the summit of the two presidents and the development of issues that will be raised during the talks on July 16 in Helsinki. He also said that a similar situation developed around the meeting of Trump with the leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-un in Singapore.

"Kim was just giving promises, we do not know if he really stopped the uranium enrichment process, but Trump said the summit was successful," Beyer said.

Earlier we reported that ghostwriters had written all of the books, credited to the U.S. President as the author. Tim O’Brien, the author of Trump biography “Trump Nation” tweeted that on Tuesday.

“President Trump didn’t write any of his books. Ghostwriters on all of them,” the tweet says.

The trolling apparently came up in the response to Trump’s recent tweet with a typo. Trump posted a tweet on July 3 where he attacked the press and the public for constantly looking for mistakes in his tweets.

“After having written many best selling books, and somewhat priding myself on my ability to write, it should be noted that the Fake News constantly likes to pore over my tweets looking for a mistake,” he writes. Trump meant “to pore over” meaning "to read or study very carefully". However he put “pour over” meaning "to make expensive coffee" according to Merriam-Webster, America's leading and most-trusted provider of language information.
