Trump, Putin Meet in Helsinki: Here's What to Expect

US President Donald Trump throws a soccer ball to his wife (unseen) from the 2018 football World Cup that he received from Russia's President Vladimir Putin during a joint press conference at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, Finland, on July 16, 2018.

"My people came to me, Dan Coats came to me, some others, they said they think it's Russia", Trump said at the news conference. Trump arrived in Helsinki on Sunday evening after spending the day playing golf at his private club in Scotland.

Friday's indictments "ripped down any veneer or respectability from Vladimir Putin and proved he's a common thug who tried to infiltrate American democracy and it's all there in black and white" Scarborough said.

Sen. Mike Lee directed his prepared statement at Putin, not Trump.

The press conference also touched briefly on policy issues, such as Syria and trade. "It is great to be with you", Trump told Putin, before shaking hands briefly and heading into talks, which are being closely watched around the world.

"America and the European Union are best friends", Tusk wrote. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be".

Trump and his aides have been working through the weekend to soften expectations for tangible results from the Russian Federation meeting.

Mr Trump and his aides have repeatedly tried to lower expectations about what the summit will achieve. The two leaders will meet one-on-one with only interpretors, followed by a working lunch accompanied by advisers.

"Fox & Friends" anchor and daughter of current American ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman Jr., Abby Huntsman tweeted a short condemnation.

Mr Khan added: "We have a special relationship with the United States of America , it's like having a best friend". He added: "If they don't make the right deal, she might very well do what I suggested".

Even Trump's sometimes-ally Senator Lindsey Graham of SC called the summit a "missed opportunity by President Trump to firmly hold Russian Federation accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a strong warning regarding future elections". "I've been saying and I am sure you have heard over the years and as I campaigned that getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing, not a bad thing".

Mr Putin, for his part, said he and Mr Trump have maintained regular contact through phone calls and meetings at global events but "the time has come to have a thorough discussion on various worldwide problems and sensitive issues".

Observers have raised concerns about the fact that the leaders met alone during their first meeting, but for a pair of interpreters, meaning there will be no corroborating witnesses to accurately represent what was said during the conversation. Last November, in Vietnam, they agreed to maintain open military channels of communications between their forces in Syria.

Putin said he favored Trump in the election, but did not indicate whether he did anything to help him.

In the armoury of the modern world leader, it is not the most obvious power play.

Trump has said he will raise the election meddling but does not expect to get anywhere. "It's unbelievable to me to watch the right-before-before-our-eyes decline of the stature, the respect, the integrity, and the perceived intelligence of members of the United States White House or presidential press corps". The United States is not to blame.

Republicans and Democrats alike are dismayed by President Trump's comments at his joint press conference with Russian leader Vladimir Putin on Monday.

"A productive dialogue is not only good for the United States and good for Russian Federation, but it is good for the world", he said. But Trumpmade no reference to the British intelligence assessment that Russian Federation was responsible for a nerve agent attack in Wiltshire that resulted in the death of a British citizen last week.

Republicans described Trump's performance as "shameful", "an absolute disgrace", and "moronic". I think that the United States has been foolish.
