He was perfectly prepared to have it come before the meeting with Putin. Near Trump's hotel, police roped off a group of about 60 mostly male pro-Trump demonstrators waving American flags.

Well, President Trump has spoken about these indictments in a very partisan way while members of his administration including the Secretary of Homeland Security have been saying that it was really about an attack on America.

Donald Trump's latest head-scratching statement comes from his interview with CBS News where he first described the European Union when asked to name the "biggest foe globally right now" for the United States. "I'm not going with high expectations".

President Donald Trump called the European Union a "foe" of the United States in an interview that aired Sunday.

Putin said Russian Federation could be "proud" of its hosting of the football World Cup, judging it a success "in every respect" after final.

Bolton noted that a number of Democratic senators have called for these Russians to be extradited - but said they don't know what they're talking about, as the USA doesn't have an extradition treaty with Moscow. Russia's constitution also prohibits turning over citizens to foreign governments.

Russia's new military systems are being created to "cement" nuclear parity with the NATO Western military alliance, the Kremlin said ahead of the presidential summit between Presidents Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump on Monday.

Trump told Putin that he had spoken with British Prime Minister Theresa May and German Chancellor Angela Merkel "and they agree with me" about the "outrageous" nature of the video, a source told Axios.

In an interview yesterday with CBS News Trump was asked to describe the US's biggest foes - and the first on the list was the European Union - before going on to name Russian Federation and China.

Britons Design Creative Trump Blimps to Protest His Visit
Sarah Elliott, chairwoman of Republicans Overseas UK, told CNN she did not think Trump would be fazed by the stunt. In the interview, Trump pledged to walk away from a major US-UK trade deal and launched a personal assault on May.

He said meeting with people like North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Chinese President Xi Jinping is a good thing.

"Nothing bad's going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out".

In Russia, the budding relationship is viewed with cautious optimism as a chance to reboot relations after Putin's military intervention in Ukraine in 2014 set off cascading US economic sanctions.

Putin is regarded as creating a culture of violence and impunity that has resulted in the killing of some Russian journalists.

"If I was given the great city of Moscow as retribution for all of the sins and evils committed by Russian Federation over the years, I would return to criticism that it wasn't good enough - that I should have gotten Saint Petersburg in addition!" he tweeted.

Panelists on popular Sunday night talk show "Vecher, " or "Evening, " said Putin goes into Monday's summit in Helsinki as the clearly stronger figure, notably coming off his hosting of the World Cup.

"Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all", Trump told reporters on Tuesday.

There will be a one-on-one meeting for 90 minutes.

"Just in the previous year we've seen an extra $41bn added to defence budgets across the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and there was a real sense at this summit, following the discussion that he initiated, that we would see people not just stepping up in terms of going to meet their 2%, but seeing that there was an increased urgency in doing this". "I think it's a good thing to meet - I do believe in meetings", he added.
