Trump To Get Played By Putin?

U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin will meet on July 16 in Helsinki, Finland, the Kremlin and the White House said on Thursday.

Trump has previously blamed the annexation of Crimea on former President Barack ObamaBarack Hussein ObamaTrump no longer talks a lot about the stock market.

"In establishing that line of communication the president has very much in mind he wants to understand the Russian position and perhaps more importantly he wants Vladimir Putin to understand our positions", he continued.

Putin and Trump plan to meet in Finland's capital, Helsinki, on July 16 following a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, an official White House announcement confirmed last week.

Other contentious issues are also likely to come up in the meeting, which will mark the third time the two presidents meet but their first official summit. This week, he tweeted: 'Russia continues to say they have nothing to do with meddling in our election.' And the Pentagon is reportedly studying pulling troops out of Germany. "We'll be talking about elections ... we don't want anybody tampering with elections", Trump told reporters on Air Force One. Trump's national security adviser, John Bolton, suggested on Sunday that the issue would come up as well, but also argued that Trump's summit with Putin would be a good way for the pair to get past the "political noise" caused by the Russian Federation probe.

Randle was given a $5.6-million qualifying offer by the Lakers earlier this week, which made him a restricted free agent. Nine minutes after free agency began, Jordan tweeted the all-important smiley-face-wearing-a-Cowboy-hat emoji.

Recall that during the scheduled meeting of presidents in Helsinki next month, trump will raise the question of alleged Russian interference in USA elections. "It was stated clearly by our side that the Russian state hasn't interfered with the USA domestic politics, moreover hasn't interfered in the 2016 election", Putin aide Yuri Ushakov said after meetings with Bolton last week.

The president has called Mueller's probe a "witch hunt". "We want to strive for a better relationship", Stoltenberg said. He said the USA has wanted to learn about Russia's main objectives, "but without this kind of discussion, which has been precluded for some time by the political noise over the allegations of [Russian] collusion with the [presidential] campaign, we haven't been able to do that". Putin is known as a shrewd negotiator who some officials worry could exploit such a session and extract concessions from Trump.

Moscow said Trump had invited Putin for a summit at the White House but the focus has shifted to a meeting on neutral ground.

"The idea that Russian Federation did not meddle in our election is fake news", Graham said.

Putin has "repeatedly stated and explained that Crimea can not be and will never be on the agenda because it is an inseparable part of Russia", Kremlin spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters.
