Trump calls the European Union a ‘foe’ of the United States

  • Trump calls the European Union a ‘foe’ of the United States

"President Trump should cancel his meeting with Vladimir Putin until Russian Federation takes demonstrable and transparent steps to prove that they won't interfere in future elections", Schumer said in a Friday statement.

A few scattered boos rang out from across the road.

Trump and Putin have held talks several times before. But their summit Monday in Helsinki, the seaside capital of Finland, promises to outdo their past face-to-face encounters.

The indictments have strengthened Trump's hand heading into the summit, Bolton said.

Finland has a long legacy of hosting U.S.

Huntsman on Sunday said that it was "highly unlikely" the United States would recognize Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea, but would not rule it out.

Trump sees progress on an arms control treaty as the likeliest area of progress for the Trump-Putin summit, the source said. The rest of the interview will air on Monday. "I hadn't thought of that".

Trump was asked about the testimony of Peter Strzok, an embattled Federal Bureau of Investigation agent who sent texts sharply critical of candidate Trump, vowing to prevent him from winning the 2016 election. The texts opened the Justice Department up to claims of institutional bias.

What Trump wants from Russian Federation has always been one of the great mysteries of his presidency. CBS News released excerpts Sunday, hours before Trump was set to fly to Helsinki for the summit. On the way to meet with a leader who has cracked down on the press in his country, Trump tweeted that the US news media is the "enemy of the people" and complained that "No matter how well I do at the Summit" he'll face "criticism that it wasn't good enough".

Glor asked Trump if he would ask Putin to extradite the Russian intelligence officers named in the indictment.

However, European Council President Donald Tusk has said that the EU and the United States are best friends, and saying the two are foes was "fake news".

"Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people and all the Dems know how to do is resist and obstruct!"

Trump meanwhile teed up the summit with a quiet weekend of golf at one of his courses in Scotland, a calm end to his stormy visit to Britain, where he shocked his hosts by attacking Prime Minister Theresa May's strategy for Brexit.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas warned Trump against making any unilateral deals with Russian Federation that come with a cost for the United States' Western allies.

Asked whether he would press his Russian counterpart to send to the USA members of the Russian military intelligence agency accused of hacking Hillary Clinton's failed presidential campaign, he said: "Well, I might".

Asked whether he would press Mr. Putin to send to the US members of the Russian military intelligence agency accused of hacking email servers of Hillary Clinton's campaign, he said: "Well, I might". He described the European Union, a bloc of nation's that includes many of America's closest allies, as a "foe", particularly on trade.

"I think we have a lot of foes", Trump said. "China is a foe economically certainly. but that doesn't mean they're bad..." It doesn't mean anything.

A US senator says it's inevitable that Russia is going to interfere in American elections and that it's pointless to confront Russian President Vladimir Putin about it. In Paul's words - "They're another country". "What they do to us in trade". They're going to interfere in our elections.

The president opened his first meeting with Putin - it lasted more than two hours last July in Hamburg, Germany - by pressing Putin on Russian election meddling and Putin denied being involved, according to US officials who described the meeting afterward. "There won't be a Perry Mason here, I don't think".

May appeared perplexed when revealing what she said Trump's advice was, and laughed when the BBC anchor asked her if she had given the idea any thought. Trump said he's going into it with "low expectations".

He also insisted that he had been "far tougher" with Russian Federation than has been recognised by the "dishonest" media, and would "absolutely" bring up the question of election meddling.

"Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out", he said.

Bolton on Sunday said he found it "hard to believe" that Putin did not know about the Russian disruption efforts, given the alleged role of Russian intelligence officers.

The United States will not look for "deliverables" from Monday's summit with Russian Federation, stressing that talks will be "unstructured", USA national security adviser John Bolton said on Sunday. "He kind of goes in and wings it".

But Trump has vowed that he can handle Putin, whom he has taken to referring to as a "competitor" rather than an adversary.

Intentionally or not, Trump's remarks amount to an admission Putin will come to Helsinki with a hard line on issues ranging from Ukraine to Syria to his government's campaign to upend the last US presidential election.

The leaders are holding a summit Monday in Helsinki.

Ambassador Jon Huntsman says the two countries now have a "fraught bilateral relationship". The diplomat adds that "the collective blood pressure between the United States and Russian Federation is off-the-charts high, so it's a good thing these presidents are getting together".

He says, "The objective here is to meet, to put our cards on the table". "I go in with very low expectations". Trump has also said he has low expectations for the meeting, which could be overshadowed by accusations that Russians meddled in the US 2016 election.

Speaking to ABC's This Week, national security adviser John Bolton said: "The United States does not have an extradition process with Russian Federation so it's pretty hard to imagine how that would happen".
