Trump and Putin: Lack of concessions is cold comfort for bruised allies

President Donald Trump's presser following his meeting with Russian ruler Vladimir Putin will go down in the books as "one of the most surreal performances by a president in modern American history", NBC Late Night host Seth Meyers told viewers.

"I think it's kept us apart, it's kept us separated".

Rep. Justin Amash of MI tweeted that someone could be in favour of improved relations with Russian Federation and of Trump meeting Putin "and still think something is not right here". The big opponents in his mind as evidenced by his preoccupations during the 40 minute press conference are the Democrats and Clinton and Obama in particular.

Putin said allegations that Russian intelligence agencies had collected compromising information on Trump were "sheer nonsense".

Russian president begins joint press conference, says Russia never interfered and doesn't plan to interfere in U.S. domestic politics, including elections.

"We are celebrating the fact that Mr Trump is coming to Finland, so we want to say that his policies are something that please us", Isto told Yle News at the Finns Party "Welcome Trump" rally in Helsinki's Narinkkatori in Kamppi on Sunday.

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

In the past, the only people who questioned the loyalty of USA presidents were insane conspiracy theorists such as the John Birchers, who accused President Dwight Eisenhower of being a Russian agent - or the birthers, including Trump, who questioned whether President Barack Obama was really born in the United States.

"This is a statement on behalf of critical and high quality journalism", Kaius Niemi, the paper's editor-in-chief said in a statement.

Trump said they also wanted to help the Syrian people on a humanitarian basis.

But did the Russians get involved in it? Yes.

He disembarked his official jet before climbing into a newly commissioned Aurus Senat limousine and riding off in a motorcade similar to the one that accompanies president Trump.

Both leaders lauded the meeting in Helsinki as an opportunity for improving bilateral relations, arguing that improved dialogue was necessary for both countries.

Several dozen Trump supporters, many waving American flags and sporting "Make America Great Again" caps, cheered Trump near his waterfront hotel in Helsinki. The positive feeling was echoed by Putin, who said that the meeting marked the first steps to restore "an acceptable level of trust" between both nations.

The 69-year old is now under arrest for bank fraud and money laundering with his criminal trial set to commence later this month. Besides the charges of financial fraud in Virginia, he faces charges in Washington, including violating federal lobbying laws.

However, Congressional leaders say the president needs more than "low expectations" when it comes to Putin. There were no potential wins, except the chance of a move on nuclear proliferation, on which there ended up being none.

Trump and Putin have met briefly at other events, but this will be the first time the two will have extended talks.

The veracity of that statement was confirmed by the official Twitter account of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Russian Federation, which retweeted Trump's tweet along with the words: "We agree".

On US-Russia cooperation in Syria, Trump stressed that both countries had the potential to "save hundreds of thousands of lives" by working together. 300 billboards on the routes from the airport to the summit are filled with news headlines regarding presidents' attitude towards the press freedom.

Mueller's play last Friday to indict 12 Russian military officers in the attack on America, bulwarked with an extraordinary amount of detail about how that attack was carried out, couldn't have worked better.

Russian President Vladimir Putin has made Donald Trump wait an hour to meet him.

The closely-watched summit is not the first time the Russian and United States presidents have held talks.
