President Trump, Vladimir Putin hold high-stakes meeting in Helsinki

Bennie Garza | 16 July, 2018, 22:07

At the news conference following his one-on-one meeting Putin in Helsinki, Finland, Trump declined to endorse the U.S. intelligence community's assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 election over Putin's denial, saying the Russian President was "extremely strong and powerful" in his denial.

"They initially asked him to step out of the room, which he did peacefully", White House correspondent Jim Acosta explained during CNN's live coverage of the meeting.

"We have discussions on everything from trade to military, to missiles, to nuclear, to China", President Trump said before going into the private meeting in Helsinki, Finland.

Maybe Donald Trumps should have canceled his meeting with Vladimir Putin, after all?

The first lady, in a bright yellow Gucci coat, sat in the front row as President Trump and Putin took questions from the press in Helsinki on Monday after their meeting.

"Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse", Trump tweeted Monday morning, blaming "many years of USA foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!"

"I think we have a lot of foes", Trump said, responding to a question put forward by by CBS News' Jeff Glor. But in advance of the talks, Trump listed a series of topics that did not include Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. I thought it was an absolute disgrace, "said the President".

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said separately that the talks were "better than super", in comments reported by Russian news agencies.

Rep. Justin Amash of MI tweeted that someone could be in favor of improved relations with Russian Federation and of Trump meeting Putin "and still think something is not right here".

On the issue, Putin categorically denied any Russian involvement.

Trump and his aides have repeatedly tried to lower expectations about what the summit will achieve.

When terrorist forces are wiped out in south and west Syria, Putin said, "the situation on the Golan Heights must be restored to what it was after the 1974 agreement, which set out the terms for the disengagement of forces between Israel and Syria". "And he didn't mention the Middle East, particularly Syria".

Mr Putin reiterated that Russian Federation had never interfered in USA affairs.

"Russian Federation has been the most aggressive foreign actor no question and they continue their efforts to undermine our democracy", said Coats in a speech to the Hudson Institute Friday. Trump also has agreed to sit down with Glor in Washington on Monday after his Helsinki sit-down with Putin. But he would welcome a symbolic end to Western protests over Crimea and Moscow's attempts to destabilize elections and traditional Western alliances and norms.
