Schumer calls on Trump to cancel Putin meeting following indictment

World Leaders Meet For NATO Summit In Brussels

As Trump walked away from the press conference in Chequers, the prime minister's country retreat, CNN reporter Jim Acosta asked him, "Will you ask Putin to stay out of USA elections?" He said the demonstration is not directed specifically against either Putin or Trump. No, I don't know him well enough.

"Russia has shown itself to be an adversary of the United States and our allies and a serious threat to global peace, security, and stability", they wrote to Trump.

Kremlin-backed media have stressed the importance of the summit taking place on neutral territory to ensure Trump is not seen as having the upper hand. Trump called those commitments a major victory; they were first made in 2014.

Addressing a question about his consistency - and whether he might have less glowing comments about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation on his Twitter account, Trump said, "No, that's other people that do that, I don't". "It's a very effective way of negotiating". This stands out for one reason: it was on July 27, 2016, that Donald Trump publicly urged Russian Federation to help his candidacy.

Putin won re-election for six more years in March with opposition leader Alexei Navalny barred from running on what he says was a false pretext.

"GRU officers who knowingly and intentionally conspired with each other, and with persons known and known to the Grand Jury (collectively the "Conspirators"), to gain unauthorized access (to "hack") into the computers of USA persons and entities involved in the 2016 US presidential election, steal documents from those computers, and stage releases of the stolen documents to interfere with the 2016 US presidential election", says the Justice Department.

"Because I said it was unfair".

After the indictments were announced, Democrats were quick to urge Trump to cancel the meeting.

Trump arrived about a half-hour late to a North Atlantic Council meeting with Georgia and Ukraine, two countries who have both been invaded by Russian Federation in the last decade.

The interview was the latest breach of diplomatic protocol by Trump, whose predecessors tended to avoid criticizing their foreign hosts. "I don't remember any pro-Russian (US) presidents, but I want to remind you that he (Trump) is one of the most pro-Russian politicians at the moment in the United States".

Merkel does turnaround on migrants in deal to save her German government
Merkel, anxious about European Union unity, opposes such a unilateral move without agreements between Germany and its neighbors. Speaking to reporters Merkel stressed that the compromise was in keeping with European Union rules.

Pence said: "There are a broad range of issues the President's going to talk about that need to be addressed.' He added that this would include the 'economic relationship with the United States and Russian Federation and countries of the world".

Rosenstein said he had briefed Trump about the allegations earlier this week and said the timing of the announcement was a coincidence.

"On top of it all, Germany just started paying Russian Federation, the country they want protection from, Billions of Dollars for their Energy needs coming out of a new pipeline from Russian Federation".

"We go into that meeting not looking for so much".

Several diplomats and officials said, however, that his undiplomatic intervention - including pointing at other leaders and addressing Merkel as "you, Angela" - had irritated many. They're likely to get more midterm attack-ad soundbites out of Trump's upcoming joint presser with Putin than from any other political event this year.

Trump's campaign and transition team have been accused of colluding with Russian agents in an effort to influence the 2016 USA election against Hillary Clinton.

Trump and his wife Melania are on a four-day trip to the UK.

During the news conference Friday, Trump and May dismissed criticism he shared of the prime minister during The Sun interview. Later today The President and First Lady will join Her Majesty for tea at Windosr Castle.

Trump is arriving amid a swirl of domestic government turmoil as well, with May's government in crisis and her future as prime minister in question following a string of resignations from within her Cabinet over her Brexit strategy.
