Trump likely to handle Putin with kid gloves

Trump is heading to Europe this week

And it stands in stark contrast to how the president has talked about America's allies during his ongoing worldwide trip.

"I let them know that I was extremely unhappy", he said, but added that the talks ended on the best of terms: "It all came together at the end".

"We'll see what happens, just a loose meeting, it's not going to be (a) big schedule, I don't think it should take a very long period of time, and we will see where it leads". "Failure to do so would be a serious indictment of his stewardship of American leadership in the world".

Trump emerged declaring continued commitment to a Western alliance built on U.S. military might that has stood up to Moscow since World War II.

In early June, the Times reported that some of the ministers in the United Kingdom cabinet were nearly in a state of panic over the meeting between Trump and Putin.

The United States and Russian Federation are by far the world's biggest nuclear powers.

"Putin dispatched Russian special forces to Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in February 2014, after protesters in Kyiv forced the downfall of corrupt Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych, a Kremlin client".

USA intelligence agencies concluded that Moscow interfered and Trump has said he would discuss it, although he has stated both a willingness to believe Putin's denials and US agencies.

Trump has repeatedly called the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller a "witch hunt", and some of his allies have said the probe should be brought to a quick conclusion.

"If the president leaves the Putin meeting without ironclad assurances and concrete steps toward a full cessation of Russian attacks on our democracy, this meeting will not only be a failure - it will be a grave step backward for the future of the worldwide order", they said. "We will resist Russia's aggression", Democratic Senator Mark Warner and Republican Senator Marco Rubio said in an op-ed in USA Today on Thursday.

When is the Trump Putin summit in Helsinki? Trump said of May's plan for a "soft Brexit" as opposed to a hard break from the European Union: "I don't know if that's what they voted for". Schiff said on CNN that Trump should "cut his losses on this disastrous trip to Europe" and return without engaging with the Russian leader.

Rufi, a Finnish-Russian association, will protest against russophobia, while the youth wing of the Finns Party will organise a "Welcome Trump" rally to show support for Trump's immigration policies.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein says that Russian intelligence agents stole information on 500,000 US voters after hacking a state USA election board.

"If he does do this meeting he should do nothing less than hand Putin these indictments and the previous indictments and demand immediate extradition of all the individuals", Mr. Perez said. One man was selling rolls of "Trump toilet paper" emblazoned with a picture of the president. He jails and murders his opponents, presides over a mafia state and he is an enemy of democracy. "Not acceptable! All NATO Nations must meet their 2% commitment, and that must ultimately go to 4%!" he added. Flake asked in a Senate speech.

At a time when Trump accurately brags that he has built up American defense spending - and with so little US money going directly to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation operations - it's a relatively small price to pay for peacekeeping. More likely we're going to hear stuff like "Thank God the United States has never interfered with elections" from him to minimize the gravity of what Moscow did.

Vitaly Tretyakov, a political author, described Trump on state TV on the day the summit was agreed as "a neophyte in world politics" to whom Putin could explain Russian thinking and why Russia was right to annex Crimea.

While Trump said on Thursday that he expects the Helsinki summit to be "just a loose meeting", some at home are hoping it will be a "non-event" with nothing groundbreaking. As for Johnson, who was recently deposed, Trump said: "I think he would be a great prime minister".
