UK police search for paraglider who flew over Trump resort

Merkel-Trump

US President Donald Trump is holed up at his golf course on the western coast of Scotland ahead of a summit with Kremlin chief Vladimir Putin that could be overshadowed by accusations Russians meddled in the US 2016 election.

The stark contrast in approaches has been thrown into sharp relief as Trump and Putin prepare for their summit in Finland on Monday, amid unremitting criticism of Russian Federation from Trump's State Department, Justice Department, Treasury Department and Defense Department.

A federal grand jury on Friday alleged that officers of Russia's military intelligence agency, the GRU, secretly monitored computers and stole data from the campaign of Trump's former rival, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

Sen. Mark Warner (D-VA), vice chair of the Senate Intelligence Committee, joined the chorus of senior Democrats calling for President Donald Trump to back off from his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin - or at the very least, not meet with him alone.

"Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy", he added.

Anderson finally came through on his sixth to lead 25-24, then served out the victory when Isner sailed a forehand wide. Until the last shot I didn't know if I was going to win. 'Hopefully we can first of all play, both of us, ' he smiled.

US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman has already asserted that Trump will need to "go in with eyes wide open" when he meets with Putin and make "a sober assessment of the root causes of our problems".

At 3.5 percent, the United States' own annual defense spending is below the 4-percent-of-GDP level that Trump has said it is, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation figures show.

In a subsequent tweet, Trump questioned why the Federal Bureau of Investigation didn't take possession of the Democratic National Committee server that was hacked by the Russians and appeared to insinuate that an unsubstantiated and unexplained conspiracy involving the "Deep State". He also asked where the Democratic National Committee server now was. But the mixed messaging has left America's friends and allies confused, particularly after a contentious North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit where Trump questioned the value of the alliance that Putin has long denounced and sought to weaken.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday at the Department of Justice that he briefed Trump on the coming indictments earlier this week.

On July 12, a NATO summit endorsed a joint statement that accused Moscow of "challenging Euro-Atlantic security and stability through hybrid actions, including attempted interference in the election processes.widespread disinformation campaigns, and malicious cyber activities". "If we can do something to substantially reduce them [nuclear weapons], I mean, ideally get rid of them, maybe that's a dream, but certainly it's a subject that I'll be bringing up with him", Trump stressed. But he predicted Putin wouldn't confess.

But maybe they're taking a little bit of a different route, so I don't know if that's what they voted for". The 6m high balloon shows Mr Trump as a giant baby in a nappy with his trademark blonde hair.

Daryl Kimball, executive director of the Arms Control Association, says Trump and Putin could instruct their aides to begin formal work on a five-year extension of the treaty, which would not require a renegotiation of its terms or ratification by the legislative branch of either government. Referring to a TV courtroom drama aired in the 1950s and 1960s that often featured a dramatic, last-minute confession, he added, "There won't be a Perry Mason here, I don't think, but you never know what happens, right?"

Republican Senator Jeff Flake of Arizona, a frequent critic of the president, said Trump must do more than ask. Do you think Putin is happy about that?

In his prior role at the CIA, Pompeo vowed to fight Russian interference in USA elections later this year.

"A famous golf course owner from America who, I think, has now turned his hand to politics, made a decision to take the Scottish government to court to try to block these wind turbines", she told reporters.

Allies emerged confused and shaken from a two-day North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in which Trump harangued them over perceived under- spending on defense, accused Germany of being a prisoner to Russian energy and prompted an emergency meeting of leaders trying to contain the fallout from the unexpected tirade at one session.
