Trump Seemed To Exhibit Multiple Personalities At NATO Summit

Trump Seemed To Exhibit Multiple Personalities At NATO Summit

Trump and Putin are meeting in Helsinki on July 16 for a summit, which is being hosted by Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.

There were also concerns about that a summit Monday between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

He even threatened to pull the U.S. out of the Western alliance in what Merkel described as "intense" talks.

US-Russian relations have suffered from years of disagreement over the Syrian conflict, Russia's annexation of Crimea and its involvement in eastern Ukraine.

"I told people that I'd be very unhappy if they didn't up their financial commitments substantially", Trump said when asked if he threatened to pull out of the alliance.

The Kremlin firmly denied meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election Friday just hours before a dozen Russian military intelligence officers were indicted for alleged election-related hacking, a development that could cloud the upcoming U.S.

"Mr. President, as today's indictments reaffirm, election interference is not a question to be asked of Vladimir Putin, but a statement to be made to Vladimir Putin: You interfered in our elections", Flake said on Twitter.

Schumer says Trump should cancel his meeting with Putin until Russian Federation takes steps to prove it won't interfere in future elections. I think that we would have a chance at a very good relationship with Russian Federation and a very good chance, a very good relationship with President Putin.

The President's remarks came just an hour before Deputy Attorney Generla Rod Rosenstein announced the indictment of twelve Russian Federation military agents for hacking and stealing American documents and information during the 2016 presidential election.

"President Trump is the leader of a great country. If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward".

Trump said he did not criticize May during the interview and said the British tabloid did not include all the good things he said about her. Pure stupidity. But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation.

Adding fuel to the rumour fire, William's co-star Lena Headey, who plays Cersei, commented on the post with the word "Queen". "Here's to the adventures to come #lastwomanstanding #barely #immasleepforthenextfouryears #justkiddingidontsleep ".

The New START treaty negotiated under former President Barack Obama will expire in 2021, and both sides would like to extend and possibly expand the accord.

Trump said in Brussels.

USA lawmakers want Trump, both privately with Putin and publicly, to condemn Russia's actions.

The White House is stressing that the new indictment against 12 Russian military intelligence officers contains no allegations of knowing involvement by anyone on the Trump campaign or that the hacking the Russians are accused of conducting affected the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

Democrats railed against Trump's European tour, and said they were wary of the upcoming, one-on-one meeting with Putin.

One of the other stunners in Friday's indictment is the revelation that it was known that Trump campaign officials were communicating with Guccifer 2.0 - a Russian hacker proven to be connected to Russian intelligence - about the information hacked and released publicly.

Most of all, the Helsinki summit provides Trump yet another live trial of his honest belief that he is uniquely qualified to build relationships and negotiate hard deals with American adversaries.

Trump arrived in Britain on Thursday after rattling a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit with complaints about the military alliance.

May's office said it would not comment on The Sun article during a greeting with Trump and May at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst to review a military exercise.

Indeed, very little happened in Brussels that had not been planned well in advance; apart from Trump sparking an unscheduled discussion about defense spending.
