Donald Trump has 'low expectations' for Helsinki summit

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

When asked by CBS if he would ask Putin to extradite the Russians to the United States, Trump said he hadn't thought of that idea but that he might. I did it. You got me.' There won't be a Perry Mason here, I don't think, but you never know what happens, right?

Anti-Trump protesters gathered in Helsinki's Senate Square and plan to march through the Finnish capital and end their demonstration at the Square.

Chants of "We Love Trump, We Love Trump" broke out as the president's motorcade passed and Trump waved.

Top Senate Democrats urged Trump in a letter on Saturday to make "Russia's attack on our election" a "top issue" and encouraged him to act on the advice of other federal agencies, saying "you must rely on the expertise and the experts of the State Department Defense Department, CIA and other USA government agencies - not wing it on your own".

Rosenstein said he briefed Trump earlier this week about the indictment. "It means that they are competitive".

Maas welcomed the meeting, at which the United States president has said he will raise the issue of nuclear weapons reduction.

He has said multiple times during his European excursion that he will raise the issue of election interference with Putin but said he doesn't expect Putin to confess to the meddling and so otherwise he has little recourse.

The indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers on allegations of meddling in the 2016 election is good news for President Donald Trump, according to one administration official.

He said that Russian Federation is a foe "in certain respects" and that China is a foe "economically ... but that doesn't mean they are bad". "There's a lot of - a lot of things going on - that we can't talk about because they're classified, and obviously you're not going to alert your adversaries or those trying to corrupt the election process to what we're doing".

Trump sees progress on an arms control treaty as the likeliest area of progress for the Trump-Putin summit, the source said.

U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton looks on as U.S. President Donald Trump holds a news conference after participating in the NATO Summit in Brussels, Belgium July 12, 2018.

Meanwhile, Trump said "nothing bad. maybe some good" will come out of his summit with Putin.

Speaking in an interview with CBS Evening News aired Sunday, the U.S. president also sought to temper expectations about how much could be achieved.

"Right now I say we're competitors but for the United States, and frankly the UK and other places, to get along with Russian Federation and China and all of these other places. that's a good thing, that's not a bad thing".

Trump raised the meddling issue during his first meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg previous year. He cited his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un in June as "a good thing" and said "having meetings with Russia, China, North Korea, I believe in it".

"But I think it's very clear that the president's determined we're not going to have any outsider interfere with the integrity of our electoral process".

Will Trump recognize Putin's annexation of Crimea, or merely fawn over him in post-conversation interviews? "He kind of goes in and wings it", Warner said on NBC's Meet the Press.

"I think the DNC (Democratic National Committee) should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked", he said. The collective blood pressure between the United States and Russian Federation is off the charts high.

"I'll give them the benefit of the doubt and assume none of them are lawyers because the United States does not have an extradition treaty with Russian Federation, so it's pretty hard to imagine how that would happen", he said.
