Trump labels European Union foe of US

Putin arrives to go 1-on-1 with Trump at Helsinki summit

Though U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that Russian Federation intervened in the U.S. election to help Trump's election chances, the president has at times said he believes Putin's denials of involvement. The charges come just days before President Donald Trump is set to meet with Russia's President Vladimir Putin and on the same day that Trump, on a trip to the United Kingdom, again called the investigation a "witch hunt". He continued: "So I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today".

President Trump has been clear that he isn't going "in with high expectations", a message he conveyed to Prime Minister May Friday during their pre-press conference meeting at Chequers. "We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy, and we will continue to provide unvarnished and objective intelligence in support of our national security", he said in a statement.

But the top Democrat in the US Senate, Chuck Schumer, tweeted that many Americans can only wonder if "the only possible explanation for this risky behaviour is the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President Trump".

The Russian Foreign Ministry rejected last week's indictment as part of a "shameful comedy" staged by those in the U.S. who try to prevent the normalization of Russia-U.S. ties, arguing that it doesn't contain evidence to back the accusations.

"This answer by President Trump will be seen by Russian Federation as a sign of weakness and create far more problems than it solves", Graham wrote on Twitter.

"Missed opportunity by President Trump to firmly hold Russian Federation accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a strong warning regarding future elections", Republican Senator Lindsey Graham said on Twitter. Huntsman said, "The President is pursuing this meeting in the interest of America's national security to determine whether Russian Federation is willing to make progress in our bilateral relationship". Some Republicans have urged Trump to forcefully confront Putin about the election meddling, while Democratic lawmakers urged the president to scrap the meeting altogether.

The Komsomolskaya Pravda newspaper dismissed the USA investigation into Trump's "mythical work for the Kremlin", and praised him for meeting Putin "despite opposition from his own elite and the hysterics of the media".

"I beat Hillary Clinton easily and frankly we beat her. we won that race and it's a shame that there can be even a little bit of a cloud over it", he said. Big banners said "Welcome Trump" and "God Bless D & M Trump" and a helicopter hovered overhead.

Interviewed by CBS, Trump said "I go in with low expectations", adding that he would update the network about his goals for the meeting after it's taken place.

In a weekend interview with CBS News, Trump admitted that Russian Federation remains a foe, but he put Moscow on a par with China and the European Union as economic and diplomatic rivals.

"I don't think you'll have any 'Gee, I did it".

But after being asked about that by his interviewer, Trump said "certainly I'll be asking about it" although extradition is highly unlikely.

Trump complained: "No matter how well I do at the Summit", he'll face "criticism that it wasn't good enough".

Although Trump did not react publicly to the video, he "lashed out at the Russian President in a phone call", the report says, citing sources with direct knowledge of the call. He referred to the European Union as a "foe" in trade and repeatedly criticized it.

"To maintain our partnership with the U.S. we must readjust it", Heiko Maas told the Funke newspaper group.
