Trump at Helsinki: Ronald Reagan or Neville Chamberlain?

Trump at Helsinki: Ronald Reagan or Neville Chamberlain?

"Until we know what happened at that two-hour meeting in Helsinki, the president should have no more one-on-one interactions with Putin".

The Trump administration will not let Americans to be interrogated by Russia, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said on Friday, ruling out acceding to any such request from Moscow.

Via Twitter, the president declared that "The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media".

Russia's ambassador to the U.S., Anatoly Antonov, expressed hope Thursday that "the verbal agreements between Putin and Trump will be fulfilled".

In another interview to Hugh Hewitt Show, he refused to divulge details about the summit meeting that Trump had with Putin in Helsinki on Monday. But don't expect President Vladimir Putin to say that out loud.

US Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called for Mr Trump to reveal what he discussed with Mr Putin.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats was also unaware that Putin was being invited to Washington. "Say that again?" Coats said when Mitchell announced the news at the end of the on-stage interview. "That's going to be special".

Trump Says European Union Is America’s Biggest ‘Foe’
A senior White House adviser on Sunday also downplayed the meeting, saying the USA was not seeking any "concrete deliverables". President Donald Trump is setting low expectations for his Monday's summit in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin .


Trump on Tuesday said he misspoke during the news conference. "The President and his administration are working very hard to make sure Russian Federation is unable to (meddle) in our elections", Sanders said.

The two leaders held a summit in Finland on Monday but few details of what they discussed have emerged. "If he had asked me how that ought to be conducted I would have suggested a different way, but that's not my role, that's not my job", Coats said. "Putin and I discussed many important subjects at our earlier meeting". If Putin's account of Trump's reaction is accurate, it would suggest a more flexible approach than the US has shown to date on the issue.

The Crimean referendum was not monitored by worldwide observers, and Russian Federation has a history of demanding respect for votes regarded as sketchy or downright illegal by the United States and Europe. Explaining that Trump does not take kindly to slights and that he nurses grudges, one official predicted that Coats's Aspen interview could bother the president more than the many ethical blunders of Scott Pruitt, who was ousted as Environmental Protection Agency administrator.

The cover was released just days after the two leaders' joint press conference in Helsinki, during which Mr. Trump appeared to cast doubt on the conclusion of USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered with the 2016 election.

The top U.S. intelligence official has revealed that, three days after President Donald Trump met privately with Russian leader Vladimir Putin for more than two hours, he does not know what the two men discussed or agreed.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has rounded on United States critics of his summit with President Donald Trump.
