Flake: 'Concern' about what Trump might promise Putin

Trump NATO chief

"We have received unequivocal assurances of the American side that Ukraine's interests are taken into account and protected".

Macron will fly to St. Petersburg to root for his national team in a World Cup semifinal against Belgium and then leave the city immediately, while Putin has no plan to attend the game, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said. "Most certainly, we have a rising China".

Putin will emphasize Trump's ability to be his own man, unbeholden to the "swamp creatures" of Washington.

"He's mainly anxious about our allies taking advantage of us".

Putin will credit Trump for meeting with him despite the Mueller investigation into potential Trump campaign ties with Russian Federation. The two reportedly had another meeting later in the evening where the two spoke for almost an hour, with only Putin's translator present.

The planned summit between Trump and Putin is set for July 16th.

Jon Huntsman Jr., Trump's ambassador to Moscow, hinted that the US president takes a tougher line on Putin in private, telling reporters, "The president will continue to hold Russian Federation accountable for its malign activities". Not lost on those in Moscow is Trump's readiness to seek to do the opposite of what Obama did.

Since even before the 2016 election, conspiracy theories about Trump and Putin abounded.

Brazil favourites in ‘dream’ clash - Belgian coach
But, they were largely comfortable in their Round of 16 game against Mexico, as the Selecao saw of El Tri in an efficient 2-0 win. Brazil coach Tite dismissed talk that his team is the favourite to win the match against Belgium , let alone the World Cup .

Petersburg, Russia's second-largest city, and discussed the situation of Iran, Syria and Ukraine with Putin.

Greece is second, with 2.36 percent - albeit of a much smaller economy - followed by Britain with 2.12 percent. Trump has noted that most allies are not meeting their commitment of spending 2 percent of gross domestic product on defense.

Trump then criticized the European Union for recently striking a deal with Russia's energy-exporting monopoly Gazprom that will tighten Moscow's grip on Europe as its leading fuel supplier, which it has been for decades. Trump has dismissed those probes as nothing but a "witch hunt". On this trip, after meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation leaders in Brussels, he'll travel to the United Kingdom, where widespread protests are expected, before he heads to one of his Scottish golf resorts for the weekend.

- As the German government of Chancellor Angela Merkel faced a crisis with partners in her domestic political coalition (themselves under threat from farther-right parties) trying to force harsher treatment of refugees, the administration weighed in repeatedly against Merkel; and on the Fourth of July, the USA ambassador to Germany appeared to endorse far-right party members.

Although administration officials point to the long-standing alliance between the United States and the United Kingdom, Trump's itinerary will largely keep him out of central London, where significant protests are expected.

Only Trump, Putin will claim, is bold enough to toss aside these obsolete institutions and build a new foundation in their place.

The two ambassadors laid out a preliminary schedule for Trump's travels. Their meeting in Helsinki opens the way for the two of them to make history. Russian and American leaders have been meeting for decades.

"He has this general view that America's allies have been taking advantage of it, and that all of these arrangements are what he likes to call 'bad deals.' Apparently at the G7 summit, he told our partners that NATO was as bad as NAFTA", said Goldgeier, referring to the North American Free Trade Agreement Trump wants to terminate.
