McCain: Trump's meeting with Putin 'should not move forward'

Trump later made more supportive comments about the alliance at his news conference, where he stated he believed in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

That was fast. Donald Trump moved to defuse the bombshell Sun interview he gave last night, which was recorded, by calling it "fake news" in his press conference with Theresa May this morning, who wore but apparently did not see red over his remarks. Whatever's good for Trump is good, period.

After Trump spoke, French President Emmanuel Macron said nothing had changed from NATO's earlier commitment, despite Trump's claims. Because of that affirmation, the Kremlin was widely seen to have gotten the better of the Helsinki deal, and published the entire text in Pravda, the official Communist Party newspaper. It's a very, very bad policy. "The countries agreed to cover the 2 percent GDP minimum".

In February, NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said only about half of the alliance's 29 members are on track to meet the 2024 deadline - which he said would boost spending by $46 billion. Macron said France, which past year spent 1.8 per cent on defence, would meet the target by the 2024 deadline. The effort also included bogus Facebook ads and social media postings that prosecutors say were aimed at influencing public opinion and sowing discord on hot-button social issues. 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".

While he was in front of an audience, Trump berated his most closes allies, calling them "delinquents" and stating he was disappointed in them for not contributing enough for defense and letting the USA bear the burden. Of the alliance, he said it was "very unified, very strong, no problem".

Asked by the host what his first impressions were of the bombshell indictments, Cohen praised special counsel Robert Mueller and his team, saying, "I think Robert Mueller and his team have done an outstanding job". I don't know anything about him other than he will respect me.

Earlier also he said that the Obama government was "too soft" on Russian Federation over its annexation of Crimea. And they likewise are doing a lot. "But it could be a good start", said Raitasalo. It doesn't condemn Germany for doing business with Russian Federation.

Chris Wallace will conduct an exclusive interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin following the summit with President Donald Trump in Helsinki, Finland next week.

For US President Donald Trump, a summit with Vladimir Putin risks a political backlash at home and overseas.

Schumer says Trump should cancel his meeting with Putin until Russian Federation takes steps to prove it won't interfere in future elections.

Trump himself says Helsinki is a "loose meeting".

"It's one of those things. All I can do is say "Did you?' and 'Don't do it again" - but he may deny it". He added, "I think he is a great representative for your country". "I mean, I think they like me a lot in the United Kingdom, I think they agree with me on immigration". "Putin is not a friend of democracy".

"I think we'll get along well".

In response to those ideas, Sen. And Trump should definitely not meet him alone.

Instead of this, Putin will get assistance from the accompanying experts of various departments who will be prepared to draw up promptly the necessary reference materials or joint Russian-American documents, he said. "Putin is our enemy".

He left open the possibility of recognising Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. He chose to help [Bashar] Assad slaughter Syrians.

Kremlin critics at home and overseas see Trump's decision to grant Putin a summit against that backdrop as conferring worldwide legitimacy and status on Putin, something they say he doesn't deserve given the lack of meaningful change in Russia's policies internationally.
