Putin Helsinki July Meeting Focuses on Syria

President TrumpDonald John TrumpScaramucci warns Trump must "change tactics now" on trade Trump sought to purchase historic Scottish building for hotel: report Republican wins right to replace Farenthold in Congress MORE said on Friday that he will press Russian President Vladimir Putin on Moscow's meddling during their meeting later this month.

"I think he's, I think the president often says "we'll see" to show that he's willing to talk to foreign leaders about a range of issues and hear their perspective", Bolton said.

"It should be noted that real panic isn't here but across the ocean", the presenter said, adding the fact that bunker sales in the U.S. have risen since Mr Trump's election.

"I think that in the president's mind this is very important, because it gives him an opportunity to size up Vladimir Putin, to see where there are areas where we might make progress together and where there are areas where we may not", Bolton added. "I think the president will have a conversation about this and say, 'We don't want to see meddling in the 2018 election". "That's not the position of the United States". We are going to talk about the election.

The Kremlin continues to claim that the Russian government played no role in the USA election but has left open the possibility that Russian non-state actors might have been involved.

One thing you were sure to hear about those players is the hard work and dedication they put into being the best they can be. The Phoenix Suns traded with the 76ers to get Villanova's Mikal Bridges in the first round.

Insisting that he didn't like the rancor over the issue because it was "bad for the country", Trump joked that, "You know, if Russian Federation is, in fact, looking to sow discord or chaos, they've got to be saying, 'This is the greatest thing we've ever done".

Just days after Western leaders meet in Brussels on July 11, Trump is due to fly to Helsinki for his first one-on-one summit on July 16 with Putin.

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. The day before, he said they would discuss Syria, Ukraine and "many other subjects". "We might even be talking about some of the things President Obama lost, like Crimea, that could come up".

He gave a similar answer when he was asked if he would lift the sanctions on Russian Federation. Leaders of the other G7 nations - Britain, Canada, Italy, France, Germany and Japan - have all made clear Russian Federation is not welcome back until and unless it gives Crimea back to Ukraine. "We have to deal with Russian Federation".
