Gowdy weighs in on Mueller indictments: 'Russia is not our friend'

Asked about May's precarious political position, Trump has said it is "up to the people" whether May remains in power and offered praise of Boris Johnson, the former London mayor who recently resigned as foreign secretary in May's government.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members have committed to spending at least 2 per cent of their national income on defence by 2024, though the terms allow for stretching that in some cases to 2030.

"It's obvious to everyone that cooperation between our countries has been in crisis recently", said Ushakov.

"It is up to President Trump to hold Putin accountable for his actions during the meeting in Helsinki", McCain said in a statement.

"The proliferation is a tremendous, I mean to me, it's the biggest problem in the world, nuclear weapons, biggest problem in the world", Trump said alongside British Prime Minister Theresa May at her Chequers country residence.

While he was in front of an audience, Trump berated his most closes allies, calling them "delinquents" and stating he was disappointed in them for not contributing enough for defense and letting the US bear the burden. Trump said Khan has done a "very bad job on crime" and a "very bad job on terrorism".

"Mr. President, as today's indictments reaffirm, election interference is not a question to be asked of Vladimir Putin, but a statement to be made to Vladimir Putin: You interfered in our elections", Flake said on Twitter. "I'm very consistent. I'm a very stable genius".

Trump cautioned that it was hard to do substantive deals with Russia because his opponents would say that he was too pro-Russian.

Some European officials say privately that they worry Trump might express a desire to curb USA military exercises in Europe or reduce troops, just as he unexpectedly called off exercises in Korea after meeting North Korea's Kim Jong Un last month. "But it could be a good start", said Raitasalo.

"Because I said it was unfair". "I don't think he would have done that with me as President".

Trump brings 'new sense of urgency' to NATO: Stoltenberg
The prime minister welcomed the Trumps on Thursday for a black tie dinner at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire. Trump speaks during a press conference on the second day of the NATO Summit in Brussels, July 12, 2018.

Trump's comments came in a wide-ranging news conference after a special meeting on defense spending.

As the July 16 Helsinki summit approaches, U.S. President Donald Trump described Russia's Vladimir Putin on Thursday as a "competitor" rather than an "enemy" and said he expected they would get along well when they hold their first summit on Monday.

He noted that talks would cover Putin's war in Syria, his other war in Ukraine, Russia's annexation of Crimea, and its meddling in the 2016 United States election.

The US has passed a series of sanctions against Russian Federation since 2014 over its annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and alleged meddling in the US elections, which it denies.

"I would actually say that she probably went the opposite way".

Trump added that May's "soft" blueprint for the U.K.'s future dealings with the European Union would probably "kill" any future trade deals with the United States. I don't think it's good. "I mean, I think they like me a lot in the United Kingdom, I think they agree with me on immigration".

When asked if he has given Putin the advantage going into the meeting by challenging long-standing Western alliances, Trump said his administration has been "far tougher on Russian Federation than anybody".

"I think he's got what it takes".

In response to those ideas, Sen.

While Trump said on Thursday that he expects the Helsinki summit to be "just a loose meeting", some at home are hoping it will be a "non-event" with nothing groundbreaking. At best - at best - POTUS is going to say in Helsinki that he raised the issue with Putin again, was assured that Russia is innocent, but in any case was further assured that there'll be no Russian meddling going forward.
