We consider Trump partner, not 'competitor' - Putin's advisor

Merkel-Trump

Discord over his other golf course on the Scottish east coast dating back over a decade means there is little love lost between Trump and the pro-independence Scottish government.

Wearing a baseball cap emblazoned with "USA" for a round of golf, Trump at one point waved at dozens of protesters who were chanting "No Trump!" just a few hundred yards away from a beach beside his Trump Turnberry course. "We will redouble out efforts it shows that the clear message from President Trump is having an impact". "'People are telling me I can't have this meeting, everybody's saying Russian Federation is the problem - well, I don't think Russian Federation is the problem".

Democratic leadership in the Senate and House of Representatives, alongside a growing list of other Democratic lawmakers, called on the president to abandon the meeting, which is scheduled to take place Monday in Helsinki, Finland. His performance so far also will leave Putin - and the American public - wondering what they can believe. "I'll be talking about nuclear proliferation".

The admonitions to cancel the meeting came nearly exclusively from Democrats, with the notable exception of McCain, who has been absent from Capitol hill as he continues to fight brain cancer.

But Ushakov told reporters on Friday that the U.S. side in the summit may raise the issue of alleged election meddling. "I take your point about what happened at the end of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation". The U.S. president's critics as well as American allies are anxious the Russian leader will get what he wants. "It reaffirms a commitment to 2% in 2024".

Aides had said he'd be busy preparing for Monday's summit in Helsinki, but Trump spent the first part of Saturday tweeting.

At the same time, the president stressed that "Ukraine would defend its national interests, and the actions of the Ukrainian authorities and the actions of the Ukrainian president would proceed from the national interests of Ukraine". Merkel found herself in the front, while Trump straggled behind.




"If the European Union won't accept Trump's ultimatum, then Trump will destroy North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the European Union". Just as he had during his similarly tense attendance at the G7 summit in Quebec last month, Trump arrived about 30 minutes late for a working session with his counterparts, confidently striding through the entrance hall were cameras could capture his arrival.

Trump has previously shown little appetite for pressing the issue, telling reporters after meeting Putin in Vietnam last November that he had finished discussing it and believed the Russian leader's denials were honest. Putin claimed it could evade any missile defense system.

But Putin and Trump will hold a joint press conference, he added.

"President Trump must be willing to confront Putin from a position of strength and demonstrate that there will be a serious price to pay for his ongoing aggression towards the United States and democracies around the world", McCain, the Republican presidential nominee in 2008, said in a statement.

"So what are the underlying causes of past crises?"

In the most detailed U.S. accusation to date that Moscow meddled in the presidential election, a federal grand jury said Russia's military intelligence agency officers covertly monitored computers of Clinton's campaign and Democratic campaign committees, and stole large amounts of data. Pure stupidity. But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation.

Mark Warner, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, stated that he was concerned with this Trump-Putin meeting.
