All eyes on Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki today

All eyes on Trump-Putin summit in Helsinki today

Speaking ahead of his meeting with Mr Putin on Monday morning, President Trump said he had "low expectations" for the encounter, but noted "maybe some good" will come from it.

"I'm sure that the meeting of President Trump with Vladimir Putin will put America in a better position", he added.

In the interview Trump told CBS that he had not thought about asking Putin to hand over the 12 Russians indicted for alleged interference in the U.S. elections of 2016. "Certainly, I'll be asking about it".

"I can't tell you that, I assume he probably is", Trump told Morgan, conducted aboard Air Force One in Essex, England, on Friday and published on Sunday in The Daily Mail.

Banks also tweeted about the upcoming summit with Putin, calling for the President to confront the Russian leader about their attempts to undermine our democracy.

White House national security adviser John Bolton said Sunday Russian interference during the 2016 presidential campaign was a serious matter and he found it "hard to believe" that Russian President Vladimir Putin was unaware of it. "I heard they were trying to hack the Republicans, too".

Many Twitter users expressed anger or surprise that a USA leader had blamed his own country for the rift, despite Russia's interventions in Syria and Ukraine and alleged subversion of Western elections.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into allegations of collusion between Russian officials and Trump campaign members dragged into its second year in May.

It insists that even when it did process adoptions, it never accepted money for them. Teresa, who died in 1997, was recognized by the Vatican as a saint in 2016.

Before Friday, 20 people and three companies had been charged in the Mueller investigation. "I think the European Union is a foe, (because of) what they do to us in trade", he said.

Mr Rosenstein said the intelligence agents stole information on 500,000 U.S. voters after hacking a state USA election board.

The summit is expected to address a range of issues, including Syria, nuclear weapons and election meddling.

Hours before the justice department announcement, Mr Trump complained anew that the special counsel's investigation is complicating his efforts to forge a better working relationship with Russian Federation.

Trump repeated his previous assertion that the European Union has "really taken advantage of us on trade". He said he briefed Trump earlier this week on the indictment. "But I think it is highly unlikely that you'll see any change in Crimea", Mr. Huntsman said on NBC's "Meet the Press".

The Virginia senator was among the top Democrats in Congress who called for Trump to cancel his upcoming summit with Putin after the Justice Department announced the indictments.

Morgan asked Trump about "ruthless" North Korean leader Kim Jong Un, who the president had lavishly praised after the pair held a last month.
