Trump cancels Putin meeting over Ukraine crisis

Трамп рассказал как будет реагировать на политику Путина в отношении Украины

Donald and Melania Trump board Air Force One to traveling to Argentina to attend the G20 summit.

"Witch hunt" is the term the president routinely uses to denigrate Mueller's investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 campaign and whether or not there was coordination with Trump's campaign, which the president has repeatedly denied. How will he sidestep Mohammed bin Salman, who might have expected at least a meet-and-greet for the $400 billion investment he promised?

The meeting between Trump and Putin was previously confirmed by the White House.

The Kremlin said Poroshenko's request for naval support appeared to be aimed at increasing tensions in the area. Trump tweeted from Air Force One.

"We regret the us administration's decision to cancel a planned meeting of the two presidents in Buenos Aires", he said. Trump will instead speak informally with those leaders at the conference.

The president faced blowback after his one-on-one meeting with Putin in Helsinki this past summer, where he declined to forcefully confront the leader and even explained Putin's denial of hacking the USA elections.

Trump said he scrapped the sit-down over Russia's detention of Ukrainian ships and sailors over the weekend.

The two countries agreed in 2003 to share the sea, which is one of the shallowest in the world, but Moscow has said that its annexation of the Crimean Peninsula, which has gone unrecognized by much of the world, invalidates the agreement.




He has implemented martial law across Ukraine's border regions for 30 days in response to the crisis.

Evidently the White House realized on Thursday that the optics of a Putin meeting, coming at a time when Trump was already accused of being soft on Putin and the Russian Federation investigation was re-energized, would be a public relations disaster.

If you believe the heavy media breathing, Mr. Trump is now, or once again, a goner. In the spring he canceled a planned summit with North Korea's Kim Jong Un, only to revive the meeting a week later.

Peskov said the agenda for the meeting scheduled for Saturday between Putin and Trump included strategic security, bilateral relations, disarmament and regional conflicts. Without an agreement, the U.S.is set to increase the tariffs on January 1. "I think the true reason is rooted in the domestic political situation in the U.S".

Kiev is banking on its Western allies to provide military support to contain Russian Federation, which it says is preparing to invade its territory by land.

Trump said earlier on Thursday that the meeting would "probably" still go ahead despite the major escalation of tensions near Crimea. "So there's a foundation for some kind of agreement". Trump then dropped his earpiece on the floor and began his own comments, in which he discussed the leaders' shared history of family business during the US president's "civilian days" and of which he had "fond memories". Trump's Singapore summit with Kim produced a vague agreement on denuclearization with few, if any, specifics.

From the start, all the overtures Trump made in the direction of Putin were interpreted by his critics in light of suspected collusion. "He's open to it". "This is in the interests not only of our two countries, but the world at large".

The United States and the European Union have imposed sanctions on Russia over its conduct towards Ukraine since 2014, when Moscow annexed Crimea after a pro-Russian leader was toppled in Kiev. The president also views Saudi Arabia as a vital counterbalance to Iranian influence in the Middle East. "So I really don't know", the President said before departing Washington. "But if he is, I would". White House press secretary issued a statement blaming the "Russian Witch Hunt Hoax".
