Stage set for Trump-Putin finale

Stage set for Trump-Putin finale

The prime minister said that she "welcomed" Trump's meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, which is to take place on Monday in Helsinki, Finland.

If this is not true, Trump should prove he is not Putin's puppet, cancel the meeting on Monday and hold Putin and Russian Federation to account boldly and aggressively in a way he has never done before. All patriotic Americans should understand that Putin is not America's friend, and he is not the President's buddy.

"We want to find out about Syria". "Bill Clinton looked hard into Yeltsin's eyes and said, 'I'm a little bit concerned about this young man that you have turned over the presidency to".

More recently ties have been strained by a probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election and suspected collusion with the Trump campaign, as well as by the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain.

"Mr. President, as today's indictments reaffirm, election interference is not a question to be asked of Vladimir Putin, but a statement to be made to Vladimir Putin: You interfered in our elections", Flake said on Twitter.

"I'm not going in with high expectations but we may come out with very surprising things", Trump said.

When asked about Russian Federation illegally occupying Crimea, Trump blamed the Obama administration and said Putin "wouldn't have done that if I was president".

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday at the Department of Justice that he briefed Trump on the coming indictments earlier this week.

Even President Donald Trump's strongest supporters have trouble explaining his rhetoric when it comes to Russian Federation. He seldom talks about relations with Russian Federation in terms of America's strategic interests, whether they be military or economic or anything else, let alone Russia's actions.

Other accusations, denied by Moscow, include that it meddled in US and European politics, supplied the weapon that shot down a passenger plane in 2014 over Ukraine and tried to kill a former Russian spy in Britain this year with a nerve agent.

It wouldn't require them to learn how to dive, though it would be a huge logistical effort requiring a number of expert divers. He said officials had met and agreed on the need to "ensure 100 percent safety for the boys when we bring them out".


"It will be over a relatively short period of years", Trump said.

If the two-day summit revealed anything about Trump's relationship with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, it's that he can't force partners to do his bidding - and that it still doesn't make sense for the U.S.to leave the alliance.

Dmitry Kiselyov, presenter of Russia's main weekly TV news show "Vesti Nedeli", said Moscow had seen how Trump had received other leaders on home soil, showing footage of Trump holding Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's hand in a vice-like grip, brushing dandruff off French President Emmanuel Macron's shoulder and glowering next to German Chancellor Angela Merkel.

Finnish National Defense University security policy expert Lt. Col. Jyri Raitasalo told VOA the Trump-Putin summit will be largely "symbolic".

The Helsinki talks culminate a week of Trump's bull-in-a-China-shop diplomacy in Europe.

"The US intelligence community knows that the Russian government attacked the US", he said in a statement.

POTUS should either publicly demand extradition of these 12 Russian officials to stand trial or call off his summit. "It could happen", Trump said.

"It defies logic that Putin did not know of this and that Putin did not approve of it", he said.

Instead "maybe he should ask Putin to turn over the 12 people indicted to the United States for trial", Podesta said.

Trump arrived about a half-hour late to a North Atlantic Council meeting with Georgia and Ukraine, two countries who have both been invaded by Russian Federation in the last decade.
