Donald Trump sets expectations low for Helsinki summit with Vladimir Putin


People in Helsinki attend the pro-human rights "Helsinki Calling" protest on Sunday, ahead of Monday's meeting between U.S. President Trump and Russian President Putin. "The problem is that the U.S.is still a very powerful animal in global relations and has much more bargaining power than Russian Federation". Undeterred, the American president was set to go face-to-face with Putin, the authoritarian leader for whom he has expressed admiration.

Asked whether he would press Mr Putin to extradite to the United States members of the Russian military intelligence agency accused of hacking Hillary Clinton's failed presidential campaign, Mr Trump said he had not thought of that but that he might.

Trump himself branded the Robert Mueller probe a "Rigged Witch Hunt" on twitter just hours before he was to meet Putin.

In his tweets, Trump continued to undermine the investigation, and blamed his predecessor, Barack Obama, for failing to stop Russia's efforts to sway the 2016 election in Trump's favor.

Trump has said he will raise the issue of Russian election meddling, along with Syria, Ukraine, nuclear proliferation and other topics.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said Trump had missed an opportunity to firmly hold Russian Federation accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a warning about any efforts to interfere in future US elections.

He cited his historic meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in June as a "good thing", along with meetings he's had with Chinese President Xi Jinping.

Senator John McCain of Arizona, a prominent Republican critic of the president, also urged Trump to cancel his summit with the Russian leader if he was "not prepared to hold Putin accountable". "So I think for the president to demand something that isn't going to happen puts the president in a weak position, and I think the president has made it very clear he intends to approach this discussion from a position of strength". "And don't say I'm attacking freedom of the press".

Trump's argument that the European Union is America's most significant foe appears to be centered around his baseless belief that the EU is taking advantage of the U.S.in trade.

Over the past few days, Trump badgered North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over their military spending levels. "We won that race and it's a shame that there can be even a little bit of a cloud over it", he said. Unfortunately, no matter how well I do at the Summit, if I was given the great city of Moscow as retribution for all of the sins and evils committed by Russian Federation over the years, I would return to criticism that it wasn't good enough - that I should have gotten Saint Petersburg in addition!

Trump was notified about the indictments earlier last week as he prepared for the July 16 summit between him and Putin.

Trump has repeatedly said the investigation into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 USA election - which he casts as a "rigged witch hunt" - makes it hard for him to do substantive deals with Moscow.

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump. If you were one of the American intelligence officers who helped gather the information that's included in Friday's indictment, what would you think about the fact that Trump has asked for a private meeting first with Putin? But I certainly, I'll be asking about it.

I think we're moving into a risky and critical period. "I want to tell you".

In the CBS News interview, Trump declined to discuss his goals for the summit - "I'll let you know after the meeting", he said - but said he believes such sessions are beneficial. "He certainly wants to understand how, and whether, it's possible to deal with him", said Fyodor Lukyanov, the editor of the journal Russian Federation in Global Affairs.

Trump is typically depicted as a tool of the "deep state" in Russia's state-run media, which sometimes fans conspiracies and casts USA and western efforts to pressure or sanction its officials as having dark motives. Russia's constitution forbids the extradition of its own citizens. "President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today".

Trump congratulated Putin on a successful World Cup on his way to Helsinki in an ingratiating move.
