On the fourth leg of a grueling overseas trip, President Trump met with Donald Tusk, the president of the European Council, Jean-Claude Juncker, the president of the European Commission, and shared an eyebrow-raising handshake with President Emmanuel Macron of France.
Mr. Tusk said that there were differences of opinion over Russia, but that when it came to Ukraine, “it seems that we were on the same line.”
Mr. Trump will also meet with other European leaders, and analysts said anxiety was high but expectations were low. It is Mr. Trump’s first visit to the Belgian capital — headquarters of the European Union and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization — since he called the city a “hellhole.”
After Mr. Trump urged the alliance to do more against terrorism, NATO announced that it would formally join the fight against the Islamic State.
