Trump lists Russia, EU, China as 'foes' ahead of Putin summit

Protests took place in Helsinki on Sunday ahead of the Trump Putin meeting

"Now, you wouldn't think of the European Union but they're a foe".

Finland's largest newspaper is welcoming President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin with a series of billboards ahead of their long-awaited summit - mocking their notoriously bad relationships with the media with pointed messages of freedom of the press.

"But I go in with low expectations, I'm not going in with high expectations", Trump said.

The Kremlin said Macron would brief Putin on the recent North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, where Trump stunned allies with his divisive rhetoric and his claim the meeting with Putin would be easier.

Sunday also saw a protest march against the summit in Helsinki. Demonstrators chanted "media must be free", and carried a banner calling for human rights. "The president can put this on the table and say this is a serious matter, we need to talk about it". Trump should also keep the handshake short, maintain a stern expression, and most definitely not pat Putin on the back, Weinberg said.

"Russia is a foe in certain respects. Now you wouldn't think of the European Union but they're a foe", he said after being asked who the US' biggest adversary is globally in an interview aired by CBS' Face the Nation programme on Sunday.

"Sue the European Union, not go into negotiations, sue them", she said.

He said: "There's a lot of anger at the fact that Germany is paying Russian Federation billions of dollars". "Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news", Mr Tusk said on Twitter. "I do believe in meetings".

"I can't tell you what's going to happen, but I can tell you what I'll be asking for".

Any compromise on that region would be seen as a victory for Moscow, he added. "We are not looking for concrete deliverables", White House national security adviser, John Bolton, told ABC's This Week in an interview.

All this has understandably fueled speculation that something very odd is going on between Trump and Putin, something beyond the president's reflexive admiration for autocrats.

In his tweet, Trump said that the hacking of the servers took place during the Obama Administration. "Why didn't they do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in September, before the Election?" They had bad defenses and they were able to be hacked. When asked about who he sees as the U.S.'s biggest foe, he said that the US has "a lot of foes".

With comparisons to summits like Yalta that carved up the map of continents, Mr Trump has played down the encounter's ramifications.

For Putin, the fact that the summit is even happening despite Russia's semi-pariah status among some Americans and USA allies is a geopolitical win because, in Russian eyes, it shows that Washington recognizes Moscow as a great power whose interests must be taken into account.

The visit has been controversial because of a newspaper interview in which he said the U.S. would probably not give the United Kingdom a trade deal under the terms of Prime Minister May's Brexit plans, and also said Europe was "losing its character" because of immigration from Africa and the Middle East.

Trump sat for the interview Saturday in Scotland and CBS News released excerpts on Sunday, hours before Trump flew to Helsinki.

What are the U.S. hacking allegations?

"Russia has violated this norm by seizing Crimea and by interfering in the 2016 US election".

Top Democrats including party chairman Tom Perez have urged Mr Trump to abandon the talks, saying Mr Putin was "not a friend of the United States".

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating USA intelligence findings that Russians conspired to sway the 2016 election in Mr Trump's favour.

Trump flew to Finland, the final stop on a weeklong trip that began last Tuesday, from Scotland. Trump has denied any collusion with the Russians by his campaign and Russia denies it meddled.

Former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his deputy Rick Gates were charged with money laundering relating to their political consultancy work in Ukraine.

Former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn and George Papadopoulos, a former foreign policy adviser, have pleaded guilty to making false statements about their contacts with Russians.
