Trump adviser Bolton sees summit with Putin as necessary

With the summit between the two leaders, Putin will get praises from his counterpart thus significantly improving his and Russia's image after annexing Crimea, military conflict in Syria, and tampering with the USA elections, all that happened in the last few years.

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to reporters aboard Air Force One on June 29, 2018.

But since becoming president, Trump has adhered to the stance taken by the United States under his predecessor Barack Obama, who said Russia's annexation of Crimea violated global law. Cantwell asked. "I'm interested in hearing. if the president is under indictment, what is that nominee going to do about that?"

"I'll talk to him about everything", Trump said.

Speaking to reporters aboard Air Force One on his way to New Jersey, Trump also said he would discuss the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine and other worldwide issues with Putin during the July 16 summit.

Trump has previously suggested Russian Federation should be allowed to return to the Group of Seven - formerly Eight - economic powers.

The Republican president said he would raise the issue of election meddling with Putin as well as Russia's role in Syria and Ukraine.

Looking ahead to a Trump-Putin encounter, Bolton also brushed aside questions as to whether Trump had been too eager to accept the word of Kim Jong Un when he met with the North Korean leader last month, seeking to quell North Korea's nuclear ambitions.

Top stat: Sweden's game against South Korea saw the most fouls (43) of any game at Russian Federation 2018 so far. Or does Portugal string 10 or more passes together before finding Ronaldo in the middle or Quaresma on the wing.

Trump was noncommittal when asked if he might lift sanctions imposed on Russian Federation, telling reporters: "We'll see what Russian Federation does".

Trump is due to have his first one-on-one summit with Putin in Helsinki on 16 of next month.

"The election meddling issue was definitely something we talked about", Bolton told CBS's "Face the Nation". Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating whether Trump's campaign worked with Moscow. Putin was expelled from the worldwide group in 2014 after Russian Federation moved troops into eastern Ukraine and annexed the Black Sea peninsula of Crimea. "And I think he looks at Putin, he thinks there's a guy who controls his own parliament, doesn't have dissent, controls his media, basically has far more power than the size of his country and his economy might indicate, and he wants to be like that", Campbell told Zakaria.

"Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!". "When they say they didn't meddle, they're lying".

The President of the United States Donald trump outlined the topics that are going to discuss with Russian President Vladimir Putin, including the topic of annexation to this country of the Ukrainian Crimea.

"That's not the position of the United States".

"We're going to have to see", Trump said when asked directly about the issue by reporters, Radio Free Europe reported.
