Trump to talk to Russia's Putin about substantially reducing nuclear weapons

Melania Trump and Brigitte Macron

News of the indictment came as Trump was meeting Queen Elizabeth II and just 72 hours before his meeting with Putin.

In the meantime, Kremlin Spokesman Dmitry Peskov told reporters on Friday that they should not expect a joint communique when both presidents meet. The US Justice Department said Russian officials staged releases of emails from Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee.

"It's on", spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said. "Glad-handing with Vladimir Putin on the heels of these indictments would be an insult to our democracy", Chuck Schumer, Senate Minority Leader, said.

Following his meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel, President Donald Trump said he had a "great meeting" as the two met on the sidelines of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit only hours after Trump had made a scathing comment about the European ally at a pre-summit breakfast, according to reports.

Senator Mark Warner of Virginia, the top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, told reporters Friday that Trump shouldn't meet alone with Putin, adding that he's "afraid the president could be take advantage of" due to his lack of preparation. He called on the special counsel to "end this pursuit of the president and say President Trump is completely innocent".

The announcement that the Russians had been charged with hacking Democratic officials during the 2016 presidential election sparked a heated war of words between Washington and Moscow.

Prime Minister Theresa May said: "Wasn't to be this time but it's been a great journey that's made the country proud. They will, however, have to reflect on a glorious opportunity to reach a World Cup final that has been wasted.

"I will absolutely, firmly ask the question, and hopefully we'll have a good relationship with Russian Federation", he told a joint press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May. He comes to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit, where he's greeted by friends who say: "Donald, we thought about it and decided that you were right, let's make it 2%, but in 2024.' Trump replies: 'No, guys, I also thought about it, not 2% in 2024, but 4% right now.' He gives his European partners ultimatum: they must completely abandon independence, their independent economic policy".

On Tuesday, the president raised a few eyebrows when he declared to reporters that meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin might be easier than America's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies or Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May - a country the US shares a special relationship with. Instead "maybe he should ask Putin to turn over the 12 people indicted to the United States for trial", Podesta said.

But the meeting, and the extent of Trump's emphasis on election meddling, could highlight a divide between him and his own advisers, not to mention other Republicans, about the seriousness of Russia's activities.

"We do have political problem where - you know in the United States we have this stupidity going on".

Earlier this week at a press conference in Brussels, Trump took a fatalistic attitude about what might happen when he raises the topic. The group has also been accused of stealing the personal information of a number of US voters after managing to hack into an election board. "It makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation". "I love the United States but I love getting along with Russian Federation and China and other countries".

Trump provided the proverbial push in an interview Thursday that dominated British news, criticizing May's handling of Brexit negotiations and warning that her current plan would "kill" the possibility of a US-UK free trade deal - the very issue that had May's government teetering on the brink of collapse.
