German minister warns Trump against unilateral deals with Putin

German minister warns Trump against unilateral deals with Putin

US President Donald Trump told CBS News that European countries were taking advantage of the US. "I think it's ridiculous".

Nielsen's remarks come a day after the Justice Department announced indictments against 12 Russian military intelligence agents as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 election, accusing them of engaging in a "sustained effort" to hack Democrats' emails and computer networks.

Democratic lawmakers urged Trump to cancel the get-together with Putin.

In Helsinki, more than 2,000 people denounced attacks on human rights, press freedom and dissent as they marched to Helsinki's central Senate Square.

In fairness to Trump, and Putin, the Russia World Cup was a huge success and was relatively free of the controversies and problems many predicted might mar the tournament before it began.

"I could say: 'Would you do me a favour?"

"[Putin] has met Clinton, Bush, Obama, and now President Trump", McFaul said.

"I think it's a good thing to meet", Trump said.

"Now, you wouldn't think of the European Union but they're a foe". "The state of bilateral relations is very bad", Kremlin adviser Yuri Ushakov said. "But - in a trade sense, they've really taken advantage of us and many of those countries are in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and they weren't paying their bills and, you know, as an example a big problem with Germany". In addition, the comments that the president has made in apparent support of Russia's 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimea region - referring to its Russophone population and to the investment Moscow has made into the peninsula since the land grab, for example - have been alarming to a wide audience.

He also accused Germany of "waving a white flag". Bolton in an interview to ABC News said that it was unlikely that the USA would be able to arrest or extradite the 12 Russians who were indicted by a federal grand jury on Friday.

Trump and Putin were expected to hold formal talks while both attended the annual Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Danang.

"I believe it's really good".

He added it was up to Mrs May how to handle Brexit, as long as the USA "can trade and we don't have any restrictions" on commerce with the United Kingdom.

Trump and Putin will first meet one on one before they are joined by aides for an expanded discussion that extends into lunch. It goes to show what we were talking about.

A United States federal grand jury charged 12 Russian intelligence officers on Friday with hacking Democratic computer networks in 2016, in the most detailed USA accusation yet that Moscow meddled in the election to help Republican Trump. But again, this was during the Obama administration.

"They had bad defences and they were able to be hacked. Some signs of their said "We Shall Over Comb" and Dump Trump".

On Saturday, Mr Trump was heckled by protesters who branded him a "racist" as he played golf with his son Eric.

The two leaders meet tomorrow in the Finland capital of Helsinki and there is speculation among everyone from Mr Trump's domestic opponents to his European counterparts about how he will approach Mr Putin.

UK Prime Minister Theresa May revealed on Sunday that Donald Trump gave her this piece of advice: Sue the European Union, don't negotiate.
