Has President Trump Gone Easy on Putin and Russian Federation?

Has President Trump Gone Easy on Putin and Russian Federation?

Democratic senators are calling for U.S. President Donald Trump to cancel his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin after U.S. Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced 12 Russian intelligence officers have been indicted in the election meddling investigation. On Sunday, he will meet with the Hungarian prime minister, emir of Qatar, and will have talks with the leaders of the World Cup finalist nations, namely the presidents of France and Croatia, and with President of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) Thomas Bach.

Earlier Friday, Trump said he would question Putin about Russian election meddling when the two meet in Helsinki.

"We want there to be a possibility that these talks create an atmosphere that would allow us to discuss future contacts and, in particular, normal contacts in the form of visits to our respective countries".

Negotiations would then be widened to include members of both delegations, he said, adding that Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov will hold parallel talks in Helsinki with his US counterpart, Mike Pompeo.

Trump reiterated Friday that he is not going into the meeting with high expectations, but he said the two leaders would also discuss "a number of things", including cuts to nuclear weapons arsenals.

The Kremlin firmly denied meddling in the 2016 US presidential election Friday just hours before a dozen Russian military intelligence officers were indicted for alleged election-related hacking, a development that could cloud the upcoming U.S.

'I will absolutely bring that up.

"I think by and large [Putin] views the world as a zero-sum game, but he most certainly views the relationship with the United States and Russian Federation as a zero-sum game", Sen.

The President's remarks came just an hour before Deputy Attorney Generla Rod Rosenstein announced the indictment of twelve Russian Federation military agents for hacking and stealing American documents and information during the 2016 presidential election.

However, Foreign Office Minister Alan Duncan appeared to defend the president's stance - and soften the blow on May's Brexit deal - saying this morning that when Trump criticised the deal, he had not actually seen the finer details of the white paper.

"If [Trump] and his team are not willing to make the facts of this indictment a top priority of the meeting with Putin, then he needs to cancel it - the Helsinki summit", Warner added.

Senator John McCain, also an Arizona Republican, said the indictments add to evidence confirmation an "extensive plot" by Putin's government to spark dissent among USA voters, attack the 2016 election, and undermine faith in democracy.

"We have this stupidity going on, pure stupidity, but it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation, because, anything you do, it's like: 'Russia, oh He loves Russian Federation'".

Put simply, Trump has been doing Putin's bidding ever since he got elected. And while Trump's predecessors have asked North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members, including Germany, to show allegiance to the alliance by putting more money into their own defense, none of them have suggested the world and the US might be better off without North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

The news Friday demonstrates why Trump's approach to our allies and his behavior overseas is so unsafe and makes American less safe. Chuck Schumer, should not be a one-on-one with Putin and Trump alone.

But in Russian Federation, where the political system is obsessed with hierarchy, status and displays of raw power, Putin has "already got his victory", said Andrey Kortunov, head of RIAC, a foreign policy think-tank close to the Foreign Ministry.

"I only gave her a suggestion, not advice", Trump said. Trump at times drew laughs from some British reporters, who jeered his criticism of the media and openly laughed at his numerous boasts.

"Deal with the- what we used to call "the airing of grievances" at the beginning of every meeting", Jon Finer, Obama adviser from 2009-13, said of Obama's conversations with the Russian leader.

Instead "maybe he should ask Putin to turn over the 12 people indicted to the United States for trial", Podesta said.
