U.S. will not push for 'deliverables' at Russian Federation summit: Bolton

Mr. Huntsman, who is in Helsinki for the Trump-Putin powwow, said Russia's takeover of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 is on the agenda. Rand Paul says asking for the extradition of the Russian intelligence agents indicted Friday for interfering in the 2016 election would be a "moot point".

In a related development, Trump also called on UK Prime Minister to sue the European Union instead of negotiating as she pushes to unite her party behind Brexit blueprint.

"We could start there", says Dingell.

Nearly two thirds of Germans see US President Donald Trump as a greater threat to world peace than Russian President Vladimir Putin, a survey has found.

Russian Federation has no extradition treaty with the United States, however.

US President Donald Trump said today that US relations with Russia have "never been worse" ahead of his summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki today. He told Glor he has "low expectations" for the summit.

Others take on the issue of the day, with one reading, "Trump furious over leaks and blames media for complicating meeting with Putin".

"The collective blood pressure between the United States and Russian Federation is off-the-charts high so it's a good thing these presidents are getting together", he said during an appearance on NBC's "Meet the Press".

Donald Trump's latest head-scratching statement comes from his interview with CBS News where he first described the European Union when asked to name the "biggest foe globally right now" for the United States.

This despite a trip choreography created to have him spend as little time as possible in London and keep him out of sight. She will then head to Windsor Castle for tea with Queen Elizabeth II in the afternoon.

Trump departs Scotland on Sunday and will meet Putin on Monday.

European Council President Donald Tusk hit back at the "foe" comments on Twitter, calling any mischaracterization of the USA and EU's close relationship "fake news", a phrase Trump uses often.

"And we hear President Trump - doesn't he kind of contribute to that authoritarian effort to undermine a free press when we hear him brand legitimate news organization as fake, legitimate news stories as fake?"

The summit is expected to address a range of issues, including Syria, nuclear weapons and election meddling. So having meetings with Russia, China, North Korea, I believe in it.

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., rejected Bolton's assertion that the indictments put Trump in a stronger position going in to the meeting.

Putin and Trump first met during the G20 summit in Germany's Hamburg in July last year and again met for the second time in Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Vietnam in November last year. During Sunday's comment, he said the Germans are "waving a white flag" in buying energy from Russian Federation.

Putin has denied meddling in the election.

"I love those countries", he claimed.

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".
