Trump to talk to Russia's Putin about substantially reducing nuclear weapons

Democratic leaders immediately called for Trump to cancel Monday's scheduled meeting with Putin in Helsinki, but the White House said the summit would go ahead.

Trump's remarks about Merkel drew a rare, pointed rebuke from the chancellor, whose relationship with Trump has been strained from the start, as well as from the House and Senate Democratic leaders, Nancy Pelosi and Chuck Schumer.

On the worldwide agenda, the Syrian crisis could be a focus of the talks between Putin and Trump, as there are many issues regarding the situation around Syria, Ushakov said.

"There's no allegation that the conspiracy changed the vote count or affected any election result", Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in announcing the charges at a press conference in Washington.

But which version of reality will Trump project as he meets with Putin in Helsinki?

The Russians are charged with stealing usernames and passwords of people working in Democrat Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign and hacking into the computer networks of other Democratic Party organisations.

Allies emerged confused and shaken from a two-day North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in which Trump harangued them over perceived under- spending on defense, accused Germany of being a prisoner to Russian energy and prompted an emergency meeting of leaders trying to contain the fallout from the unexpected tirade at one session. The Kremlin has denied that the Russian state interfered in the election.

Awkward timing for Russian Federation probe indictments
If the President won't make Russia's attack on our election the #1 issue at the summit, then it should be canceled. The prime minister welcomed the Trumps on Thursday for a black tie dinner at Blenheim Palace in Oxfordshire.

They had been told by the White House not to expect access to the president on Saturday.

The meetings were expected to be unusually tense after Trump trashed May's Brexit plans in a diplomacy-wrecking interview with The Sun newspaper that published late Thursday night.

Trump, who has publicly praised Russian president Vladimir Putin, brashly criticized his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies for not spending enough on defense during a summit early Wednesday.

On July 12, a NATO summit endorsed a joint statement that accused Moscow of "challenging Euro-Atlantic security and stability through hybrid actions, including attempted interference in the election processes.widespread disinformation campaigns, and malicious cyber activities". "I don't think you'll have any, 'Gee, I did it, I did it, you got me.' There won't be a Perry Mason here I don't think", he continued.

A spokeswoman for House Speaker Paul Ryan, asked whether Trump should meet one-on-one with Putin, responded by saying that "we know Russian Federation meddled in our elections and we're glad these hackers are being held to account". I don't think he'll have any 'Gee, I did it, I did it, you got me, ' Trump predicted of his meeting with the former KGB colonel.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation may now need its friends in the U.S. Congress and in the Republican and Democratic parties to speak out more to prevent permanent damage to alliance's image in the United States, they said.

A pro-Trump demonstration is also due to be held in London by alt-right campaigners, as well as a counter, anti-fascism protest. "This isn't good for the United States and there are people across the aisle - as the Senate vote yesterday clearly showed - who know it and need to say it", Kerry said on Twitter. The lawmaker said in a statement Friday that "if the president is going to persist in attending a summit with Vladimir Putin, he must" impose new sanctions on the Russians named in the indictment, demand that Putin extradite them to the United States, and return Crimea to Ukraine. Pure stupidity. But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation. "I love the United States but I love getting along with Russian Federation and China and other countries".
