When Trump meets Putin, United States News & Top Stories

Russian presidential spokesman Dmitry Peskov

He has also dubiously claimed that it was Democrats who colluded with Russian Federation during the election instead of him - though it's also not clear if he actually believes Russian Federation meddled at all, since he once again implied on Thursday that he believed the Kremlin's denials (over the unequivocal conclusions of the USA intelligence community).

In early June, Russia promised "consequences" in response to Norway's plan to more than double the presence of U.S. Marines within its borders starting next year.

The presidents of the United States and Russian Federation will meet in Helsinki on 16 July. "I think we'll be talking about many other subjects", Trump told reporters on Wednesday.

Another thing that Putin will want is the relief from U.S. sanctions and while we don't think that this will happen, improving the relationship between Washington and Moscow will certainly help them.

Bolton met with Putin last week to lay the groundwork for the meeting and said Putin continued to dismiss allegations of interference.

The summit is being seen by some as an attempt by Putin to try to lift some of the sanctions imposed on Russian Federation after it annexed Crimea in 2014, its support of Ukrainian separatists and alleged meddling in the 2016 USA presidential elections. "I think the president will have a conversation about this and say, 'We don't want to see meddling in the 2018 election".

"The election meddling issue was definitely something we talked about", Bolton told the CBS "Face the Nation" programme.

The president has called Mueller's probe a "witch hunt".

Trump blasts OPEC, warns European companies against business with Iran
The oil company previously announced in November it had plans to expand its capacity to 3.5 million barrels of oil per day. Trump said in a tweet on Saturday that Saudi Arabia's King Salman bin Abdulaziz Al Saud had agreed to produce more oil.

The Republican president said he would raise the issue of election meddling with Putin as well as Russia's role in Syria and Ukraine.

Trump's praise of Putin as a strong leader and his stated desire to forge better relations with Russian Federation are of concern to critics. He said the USA has wanted to learn about Russia's main objectives, "but without this kind of discussion, which has been precluded for some time by the political noise over the allegations of [Russian] collusion with the [presidential] campaign, we haven't been able to do that".

What will Donald Trump be able to achieve at a summit with Vladimir Putin?

The Helsinki summit will be Mr. Trump's 3rd set of meetings with Putin after the G20 in Hamburg in July 2017 and the APEC Summit in Da Nang, in November 2017. He has denied multiple times any collusion between his campaign and Moscow.

"The idea that Russian Federation did not meddle in our election is fake news", Graham said.

Last week, Trump suggested in a tweet that he believed Putin's denials.

A man-to-man meeting with Russia's President Vladimir Putin is the kind of encounter that United States President Donald Trump, confident of America's military and economic clout - Russia's entire GDP is less than California's - and his own deal-making ability, seems to relish.

Putin has "repeatedly stated and explained that Crimea can not be and will never be on the agenda because it is an inseparable part of Russia", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
