EU chief cautions Trump, Putin to protect order

We have 90 percent of the world's nuclear weapons, and that's not a good thing - it's a bad thing.

"I think the president should be clear-eyed about who he is dealing with", said Cornyn, the No. 2 Senate Republican.

Trump and Putin then sat across from each other at a working lunch with high-level aides, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton.

Trump also congratulated Putin on hosting the World Cup, calling it "one of the best ever".

Finland also hosted unofficial talks between representatives from North Korea, South Korea and the United States earlier this year, in anticipation of the summits between North and South Korea, and later between North Korea and the US.

Although he faced pressure from critics, allied countries and even his own staff to take a tough line, Trump spoke not a single disparaging word in public about Moscow on any of the issues that have brought relations between the two powers to the lowest ebb since the Cold War.

"It was a comprehensive discussion at the start of an interesting day".

During last week's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, Trump denounced European allies for falling short on North Atlantic Treaty Organisation spending commitments, fueling fears about his commitment to the transatlantic alliance.

"Nothing bad is going to come out of it [Helsinki], and maybe some good will come out", Trump said.

Trump tells CBS News that he watched some of Peter Strzok's (struhkz) testimony to Congress while traveling in Europe. "We spend on defense much more than Russian Federation and as much as China", Tusk said. He said Trump was not well enough prepared for the meeting. Trump told reporters last week that he plans to ask Putin about the election interference, but lamented there wasn't much he could do about it besides ask Putin to not do it again.

The reason for Putin's delay was not clear.

"Looking forward to meeting with President Putin tomorrow, " Trump tweeted Sunday.

"I hold both countries responsible", Trump said.

The Helsinki meeting comes less than a week after the Justice Department announced the indictments of 12 Russian military intelligence officials for allegedly engaging in a "sustained effort" to hack Democrats' emails and computer networks during the 2016 election campaign.

"Second, the President must demand that the 12 Russians named in the indictment be sent to the stand trial". President Trump also expressed concern with Germany's recent pipeline with Russian Federation, calling them "captives".

Ambassador Jon Huntsman says the two countries now have a "fraught bilateral relationship". The collective blood pressure between the United States and Russian Federation is off the charts high. Asked if Russian Federation was at all to blame for the poor ties, he said: "I hold both countries responsible". It was a little bit tough at the beginning, but it turned out to be love.

On Sunday, her 19-year-old son, Ewan Hope, was quoted in The Sunday Mirror as saying: "I don't share Donald Trump's politics and I'll never be a supporter of his, but I would like him to raise mum's case with the Russian president".

John Fritze reported from Washington.

Donald Trump met one-on-one with Vladimir Putin behind closed doors on Monday in a long-awaited summit overshadowed by the USA president blaming his own country's past "foolishness and stupidity" for the two powers' hostile ties.
