In the first meeting of the two-day Nato summit, Donald Trump said Germany was 'totally controlled by Russia' because of its energy dependency. At a breakfast briefing with Nato representatives, he said: '[Germany] will be getting up to 70% of its energy from Russia and a new pipeline ... you tell me if that is appropriate because I think it is not.' Trump is in Brussels on the first leg of a six-day European trip. Angela Merkel hit back at Trump's comments, saying 'I have experienced myself how a part of Germany was controlled by the Soviet Union. I am very happy that today we are united in freedom'
