Donald Trump, Vladimir Putin begin Helsinki summit with handshake

Here's exactly what Trump needs to tell Putin to take control of their meeting, according to a former Reagan adviser

In further comments that angered some USA lawmakers, Trump suggested the United States and Russian Federation were to blame for troubled relations between the two countries.

US President Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump are greeted by Ambassador Robert Frank Pence, Ambassador of the United States of America to the Republic of Finland and his wife Mrs. Suzy Pence, at Helsinki-Vantaa airport in Vantaa, Finland, July 15, 2018.

The summit began with a one-on-one meeting between Trump and Putin - with only translators present - which blew past its scheduled 90 minutes.

Trump has said he will raise the election meddling but does not expect to get anywhere.

Her campaign and other members of the Democratic Party were hacked by Russian operatives on the orders of Putin, it has been alleged.

Others take on the issue of the day, with one reading, "Trump furious over leaks and blames media for complicating meeting with Putin".

President Trump arrives in Helsinki for a meeting with Vladimir Putin; the "Special Report" All-Star panel weighs in.

Putin and Trump met alone apart from interpreters before a working lunch with aides.

On the topic, Putin emphatically stated, "The Russian state has not interfered and will not interfere in USA internal affairs".

Back home, news of Russian interference in the 2016 elections continued to dominate the headlines - particularly after the Justice Department announced indictments against 12 Russian military intelligence officials suspected of hacking.

Trump did mention trade, China, nuclear arms reduction and other security matters as ones he meant to discuss first in the one-on-one session then in another meeting that will include staff from both sides.

"The disagreements between our two countries are well-known and President Putin and I discussed them at length today", Trump said.

The US President commented he wanted to improve the relations with Putin, while the Russian leader the said there a "lot of issues in the world". "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", Coats said in a statement.

"We have discussions on everything from trade to military to missiles to nuclear to China, we'll be talking a little bit about China, our mutual friend President Xi", he said.

Trump says in a television interview that he's going into the meeting with 'low expectations.

The official Twitter account of the Russian foreign ministry liked the tweet, shortly before posting a response saying: "We agree".

The United States has no extradition treaty with Moscow and can not compel Russian Federation to hand over citizens.
