Trump wish for warm Putin ties highlights policy disconnect

Top Democrats Ask Trump Not To Meet Putin Alone

The Kremlin said Macron would brief Putin on the recent North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, where Trump stunned allies with his divisive rhetoric and his claim the meeting with Putin would be easier.

"Heading to Helsinki, Finland - looking forward to meeting with President Putin tomorrow", Trump posted.

The indictments were unsealed just hours after Trump again referred to Mueller's inquiry as a "witch hunt" and after the president told reporters at a news conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May, "I think I would have a very good relationship with Putin if we spend time together".

Noting that Putin's government jails journalists critical of the Russian state, Karl asked Bolton if Trump's temperament toward the press is similar to Putin's. I don't know how that's going to go.

Michael McFaul, the former United States Ambassador to Russian Federation, on Sunday slammed Donald Trump for declaring the European Union a "foe", arguing it's "not in America's national interest" to antagonize its closes allies.

"'Don't walk away from those negotiations because then you'll be stuck.' So I want us to be able to sit down to negotiate the best deal for Britain", May said.

Both leaders were also greeted with a large billboard advertisement purchased by Helsingin Sanomat, the nation's largest newspaper, which bashed the Trump and Putin as being enemies of journalism and a free press.

"I hadn't thought of that", Trump said.

Mr Trump, a 72-year-old former NY real estate developer, and Mr Putin, a 65-year-old former KGB spy, are due to have some time alone at the summit.

For whatever reason, Croatia " s "Cinderella story' at this year's tournament has won the hearts of most of the world. Additionally, France celebrated Bastille Day on Saturday, so the entire nation is in a mood to keep the party going.

"But I'm going with low expectations I'm not going with high expectations", Trump said during an interview with CBS News on Sunday (July 15).

While summits with Russian leaders are far more common, Trump believes a similar boost would occur if he can improve relations with Moscow and get Putin to make concessions never attained by President Barack Obama.

Mr Trump, who has been preparing for the summit by playing golf at his Turnberry course on the western coast of Scotland, said he expected "nothing bad" would come out of the summit. Trump has asked Putin in the past whether Russian Federation meddled in the election, and then in Twitter comments repeated Putin's denial of interference.

A senior White House adviser on Sunday also downplayed the meeting, saying the United States was not seeking any "concrete deliverables". "I think it's a good thing to meet", he said, adding, "maybe some good will come out" of it.

Trump declined to offer his goals for the first summit between the two world leaders, but promised that "nothing bad" would come out of it. Trump and Putin have talked previously on the sidelines of worldwide gatherings.

Democratic lawmakers in the USA had urged Trump to cancel the get-together with Putin.

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Ky., meanwhile, suggested that Trump not even bother to press Putin on election meddling because "he's not going to admit that he did it". "I don't think Russian Federation is sending anyone back over here for trial, the same way we wouldn't send anybody over there for trial", Paul mused on CNN's State of the Union.

Some state officials also said homeland security is becoming more helpful in sharing information. "But I will absolutely, firmly ask the question".
