Finns protest Trump-Putin meeting

April FrancisJul 19, 2018

Mr Trump, who has sought to lower expectations about what will be achieved, told reporters during a breakfast with Finland's president Sauli Niinisto that he thought the summit would go "fine". I'm not going with high expectations'. He would regard the summit as a success if there was an agreement to merely reopen severed lines of communications across the board, he said.

For Russia, it is also a powerful sign that Western efforts to isolate Moscow have failed.

President Donald Trump said he addressed Russia's interference in the US 2016 election and that President Vladimir Putin was "extremely strong" in his denials.

"Creating safety for Israel is something both Putin and I would like to see very much", Trump said. "Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin".

Finland has a long legacy of hosting U.S.

Putin said he and Trump have agreed to continue detailed discussions on arms control issues.

U.S. Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia says, "We know that Trump doesn't do a lot of prep work for these meetings".

"This answer by President Trump will be seen by Russian Federation as a sign of weakness and create far more problems than it solves", Graham wrote on Twitter.

He says, "I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade". But this time, the source said, Trump told Putin the video was "outrageous". Certain NATO allies fear Putin might seek a grand deal that would undermine the US -led transatlantic alliance.

The senator added that " President Trump could nominate George Washington and they would all be up in arms". Democrats will continue to argue that Kavanaugh's confirmation imperils Roe V Wade and reproductive rights.

"I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade", he said in an interview to CBS News while in Scotland.

"The world wants to see us get along", Mr. Trump remarked during the leaders' first formal meeting, adding, "I think we'll end up having an extraordinary relationship".

President Donald Trump said Monday that Russian President Vladimir Putin privately made an "incredible offer" to help American investigators in their prosecution of 12 Russian intelligence officers accused of hacking crimes during the 2016 presidential election.

President Trump arrives in Helsinki for a meeting with Vladimir Putin; the "Special Report" All-Star panel weighs in.

U.S. President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin on Monday opened summit in Helsinki. "He can't simply raise it, accept Putin's denial and then let him off the hook", Schumer said in a statement.

Bolton tells ABC's This Week on Sunday that the indictments show that the American justice system is aware of Russian efforts to meddle in USA elections.

According to federal prosecutors, Russian spies first attempted to infiltrate email accounts tied to Clinton on the same day Trump encouraged Russia to produce emails from Clinton's tenure as secretary of state. He indicated the talks were wide-ranging and covered nuclear non-proliferation, Middle Eastern affairs in Israel and Syria, Iran and the nuclear deal and Trump's recent negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.

The incident is believed to be linked to the poisoning of a former Russian spy in March.
