How Trump's turbulent Europe trip affects his Putin meeting

How Trump's turbulent Europe trip affects his Putin meeting

"Donald Trump must immediately cancel his planned summit with Vladimir Putin until Russian Federation demonstrates its willingness to come back into the community of nations that respect the rule of law, legal norms and democratic institutions".

He said those who criticized Trump's June summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un should understand that issues such as the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula "cannot be done overnight".

"[Trump] doesn't need to ask Putin anything". House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that Trump's refusal to condemn Putin "makes it clear that meeting with Putin would be both pointless and unsafe".

Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.), Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-N.Y.) and 18 members of the House Foreign Affairs Committee called on President Donald Trump to cancel his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin after indictments were announced Friday accusing a dozen Kremlin intelligence officers of hacking Democratic Party emails during the 2016 presidential campaign.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin were slated to meet over the coming days in Finland.

"Vladimir Putin is a pipsqueak in this relationship", he said on "Countdown to the Closing Bell".

In the most detailed USA accusation to date that Moscow meddled in the presidential election, a federal grand jury said Russian military intelligence agency officers covertly monitored computers of Clinton's campaign and Democratic campaign committees, and stole large amounts of data. "But considering the discussion among the European allies, not only the Americans, I think we need to ask ourselves consistently what more we can do".

Trump's campaign and transition team have been accused of colluding with Russian agents in an effort to influence the 2016 USA election against Hillary Clinton. "There won't be a Perry Mason here, I don't think, but you never know what happens, right?"

The technology can detect if a driver is using Bluetooth, and will therefore not trigger the warning sign. If it proves successful in Norfolk, the phone-detecting road signs may be rolled out across the country.

"He should demand that", said Nadler of NY.

When he took the floor in the amphitheatre-like North Atlantic Council room for a session with non-NATO members Georgia and Ukraine, Trump began a 10-minute tirade, which several diplomats said became a rage.

The 12 Russian officials have been charged with hacking into the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton's 2016 presidential campaign and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said Friday the summit will not be canceled.

President Trump makes public adversaries out of our friends, and turns our adversary, who has been attacking America's democracy, into his fawned-over ally.

Trump also has expressed little interest in continuing the harsh US criticism of Russian activities in Syria, Ukraine and elsewhere, and Russia's human rights record.

The indictments were announced Friday by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as part of the ongoing special counsel probe into potential coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. Pure stupidity. But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation.

News of the indictment came as Trump was meeting Queen Elizabeth II and just 72 hours before his meeting with Putin.
