Trump lists Russia, EU, China as ‘foes ahead of Putin summit

Russian Federation is a foe in certain aspects.

Russia had earlier denied meddling in the United States election campaign and Trump called special counsel Robert Mueller's probe on the Russian interference a "political witch hunt". Another frame for Trump's criticism of Europe was white nationalism, as he also said last week that it was a shame that European countries were allowing their cultures to be erased by allowing in immigrants.

"We could start there", says Dingell.

Asked whether Trump would ask Putin to turn over the 12 military intelligence officials, US national security adviser John Bolton called the idea "pretty silly" and said doing so would put the president in a "weak position".

A provision in Russia's constitution also prohibits extraditing its citizens to foreign countries.

Trump says in a television interview that he's going into the meeting with "low expectations". "I want to tell you".

Several lawmakers have spoken out since the indictments for Trump to cancel the meeting, to agree to bring other United States officials in the meeting, and to prioritize discussing campaign meddling.

"Not welcome", read one sign, held by Hemmo Siponen, showing a cartoon of Trump and Putin embracing.

"That's a really good thing", he said.

"We have asked, and the Russians have agreed, that it will be basically unstructured".

Mr Trump said the U.S. has "a lot of foes" and named the bloc as one of them.

Finland has a long legacy of hosting US-Russian summits because of its perceived neutrality and geographic location, as per several media reports.

Near Trump's hotel, police roped off a group of about 60 mostly male pro-Trump demonstrators waving American flags.

He has said multiple times during his European excursion that he will raise the issue of election interference with Putin but said he doesn't expect Putin to confess to the meddling and so otherwise he has little recourse. Meanwhile, his criticisms of countries in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation failing to pay their fair share is yet another example of Trump providing fake news to support his shaky argument.

The US Ambassador to Russia, Jon Huntsman, told NBC'S "Meet the Press" that the meeting was "an attempt to see if we can defuse and take some of the drama, and quite frankly some of the danger, out of the relationship right now".

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., rejected Bolton's assertion that the indictments put Trump in a stronger position going in to the meeting.

The president has repeatedly said the investigation into Russian election meddling is a "rigged witch hunt" that makes it hard for him to do substantive deals with Moscow.

"I respect the leaders of those countries".
