But the US spends more on defense than all the others combined - 3.61 percent of GDP in 2016, or around $664 billion. The report comes one week before Trump is set to depart for the NATO Summit in Brussels.

The White house said that the statement of the adviser of the us President for national security Affairs John Bolton, in which the media saw the possibility of USA recognition of Russia's annexation of the Ukrainian Crimea, not true. Sanders would not say whether Trump agrees that the nominee, who he will name next Monday, should respect the high court's precedent, or whether he believes Roe v. Wade is settled law.

"We do not recognize the annexation of Crimea".

Ultimately, Sanders said that Mr. Trump is "not going to get into asking the candidates about specific cases".
