Donald Trump arrives in Helsinki for summit with Vladimir Putin

Donald Trump arrives in Helsinki for summit with Vladimir Putin

In an interview at the president's golf club in Turnberry, Scotland, with CBS Evening News anchor Jeff Glor, Trump said the United States has many foes, and being a foe was not necessarily a bad thing.

"I don't think you'll have any 'Gee, I did it, I did it". "So, because we waste time saying, 'Well, Putin needs to admit this and apologize, ' - he's not going to admit that he did it, and we can't take on face value anything they tell us".

Trump has previously exaggerated the total trade deficit numbers with the European Union to fit his misguided narrative.

Trump was a destabilizing presence at North Atlantic Treaty Organisation earlier in his European trip, torching allies and demanding more defense spending before eventually reaffirming his commitment to the military alliance.

Speaking at a press conference alongside British Prime Minister Theresa May, President Trump seemed reluctant on a question of whether the USA and Russian Federation could realistically build a stronger alliance given Moscow's intervention in Ukraine.

The US President added: "But for Russian Federation and the United States, and frankly the UK and other places, to get along with Russian Federation and China and all of these other places.... They had bad defenses and they were able to be hacked". It doesn't mean anything.

Trump said the European Union was a foe in trade while also calling Russia and China foes in some respects, before his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

"I think this is a so-called first meeting, where the main goal apparently is to test if the dialogue runs smoothly and if a common ground can be found rather than to address some kind of concrete issues", explained Niinistö.

President Trump, who continues to describe the special counsel probe as a "witch hunt", was briefed earlier on the charges.

U.S. President Donald Trump, just hours before his highly anticipated one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, took to social media to cast blame for the state of the American relationship with Moscow.

"I respect the leaders of those countries", Trump said.

That's according to a grand jury indictment Friday charging 12 Russian military intelligence officers with hacking into the Clinton campaign and the Democratic Party as part of a sweeping conspiracy by the Kremlin to meddle in the 2016 USA election. "But I will absolutely firmly ask the question, and hopefully we'll have a very good relationship with Russian Federation".

Yet, President Trump has never criticized Mr Putin and indeed has been more likely to express his admiration.
