President Trump's visit to the UK will come straight on the back of a tumultuous NATO summit in Brussels.

The US president threatened to withdraw the US from the western defence alliance, unless European countries increased their funding of its operations.

Trump has been widely credited with a personal victory, after other leaders agreed to accelerate NATO spending.

BBC political editor Stuart Hughes told Larry Williams that Trump is unhappy with many European countries

"He arrived to NATO with typical bombast and bluster, as he sees it too many NATO members are not paying there way."
