President Trump lowers expectations for Putin meeting

Trump names EU a global foe, raps media before Putin summit

US President Donald Trump drives a golf buggy on his golf course at the Trump Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire, as part of their visit to the United Kingdom before leaving for Finland where he will meet Russian leader Vladimir Putin on Monday. At another notable point in the 30-minute conversation, Trump reportedly falsely claimed his administration's widely criticized policy of separating undocumented immigrants from the border was actually an Obama-era policy.

All eyes insight into their relationship will be on offer when Trump and Putin hold a joint news conference on July 16 afternoon after their meeting in the Gothic Hall of the Finnish presidential palace.

Questioned repeatedly about Trump's unpredictable demands, Macron injected a note of gravity, underlining that NATO's work is important, that it involves the lives of men and women - U.S. Corporal Joseph Maciel from California was killed in an insider attack in southern Afghanistan last weekend - and must not be taken lightly.

The charges come as Mueller continues to investigate potential co-ordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign to influence the presidential election.

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

"This was during the Obama administration".

He added: "You wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe".

CBS's Jeff Glor asked Trump whether he would ask Putin to extradite those Russians to the United States.

He again described Justice Department special counsel Robert Mueller's ongoing investigation as a "witch hunt" that has hampered US relations with Russian Federation.

John Isner loses to eight seed in longest semifinal match at Wimbledon
Soon, they were meeting for an embrace, with Anderson being the first South African man in 97 years to reach the Wimbledon final. To say that Kevin Anderson won this interminable Wimbledon semifinal, and that John Isner lost it, didn't really seem fair.

"They had bad defences and they were able to be hacked. Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out". I think having meetings with the president of China was a very good thing.

Trump's will meet with Putin days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced new indictments Friday against 12 Russian intelligence officials, accused in the 2016 hacking of the Democratic National Committee. But I heard they were trying to hack the Republicans too. China's a foe economically, certainly they are a foe.

Trump, unlike Putin, is facing hard domestic pressure and any deals reached in Helsinki can be potentially undermined by the USA top lawmakers and bureaucracy, which have been repeatedly showing a stern anti-Russian stance.

He has said he wants to raise nuclear arms control, Ukraine and Syria with Mr Putin, who has served as Russia's preeminent leader since Boris Yeltsin resigned on the last day of 1999.

The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mark Warner, said he was anxious about Trump being alone in the room with Putin, without his national-security aides. "Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news", Mr Tusk wrote on Twitter.

In an interview on Sunday, Trump downplayed the significance of the tete a tete. We had much better defenses, so they couldn't.

But Jon Huntsman, the USA ambassador to Russian Federation, said Monday's meeting "is really the first time for both presidents to actually sit across the table and have a conversation and I hope it's a detailed conversation about where we might be able to find some overlapping and shared interests".

"I can't tell you what's going to happen, but I can tell you what I'll be asking for".
