Trump and Putin take to summit stage

It had been sought by special counsel Robert Mueller and comes days before U.S. President Donald Trump holds a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In fact, Trump's father was born in New York City. He planned no public appearances until Monday, when he heads to the Presidential Palace for breakfast with Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.

For Trump, the formal meeting with Putin is an opportunity to develop a closer working relationship with the Russian president.

The U.S. president, who was interviewed at the golf resort in Scotland that he has plugged at least three times during his European trip, also vowed that "nothing bad" will come out of the much-anticipated Putin summit. "And you know, talking about shutting it down and "we, we.' And he says 'Oh, I meant the American people" all of a sudden, you know, he came up with excuses", the president said, adding that the incident harms relations with other countries. -Soviet and U.S. -Russian summits because of its geographic location and perceived neutrality.

Tweeting as he flew to Finland for Monday's meeting with Putin, Trump says, "No matter how well I do at the Summit" he'll face "criticism that it wasn't good enough".

The meeting comes just days after 12 Russian intelligence officers were charged by a US federal grand jury for hacking the Democrats ahead of the 2016 election, the most detailed USA accusation yet that Moscow meddled in the election to help Trump. I don't think you'll have any, 'Gee, I did it.

Of his upcoming meeting with Putin on Monday, Trump was more guarded."I think we could probably get along very well".

The president taped the interview at Turnberry the day before he was set to leave for Helsinki. "I think that getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing", Trump told the program.

He added the hack of the DNC's information was a result of the party having a weaker cybersecurity system than the Republican National Convention.

"Which can't be said with confidence about Russian or Chinese spending", Tusk said.

"I would be much more anxious if we weren't preparing ourselves for some demonstrations", he said.

Mr. Trump, who is set to meet Monday with Mr. Putin in Helsinki, Finland, raised doubts about his commitment to a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation statement refusing to recognize Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine. But that doesn't mean they're bad.

The veteran diplomat is concerned that some of the world's rules, based on which global relations had been conducted, have been broken as "President Trump doesn't seem to be interested in the way we used to see during earlier American presidencies".

The source with knowledge of Trump's discussions said Putin is still eager to form a joint Russia-US cybersecurity unit, which remains unlikely. He said asking for the indicted Russians to be turned over would have the opposite effect.

None of the charges allege Trump advisers colluded with Russian Federation to interfere with the presidential campaign.

The U.S. intelligence community concluded in 2017 that Russia had meddled in the 2016 presidential election and that Russian President Vladimir Putin ordered an "influence campaign" aimed at helping Donald Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton's campaign.

Huntsman was interviewed on NBC's "Meet the Press", Paul appeared on CNN's "State of the Union", and Bolton and Murphy spoke on ABC's "This Week".

With Trump's surprise victory in the November 2016 election after a divisive campaign overshadowed by accusations of Russian interference, Putin calls to congratulate him.
