Putin, Trump to discuss nuclear arms control at G20 summit, Kremlin says

Donald Trump Cancelled Putin Meet Due to Domestic Politics Russia

He was widely criticized for failing to publicly denounce Russia's interference in the 2016 US election and appearing to accept Putin's denials of such activity. But Cohen's revelation shows that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is digging deep into financial relationships between Trump's business and Moscow, taking him to the heart of the connections he was appointed to explore between Russian Federation and Trump's campaign.

Cohen said he and a partner pursued the plan build a Trump tower in Moscow through the middle of 2016.

Mrs. Sanders described the decision-making process to reporters traveling with the president.

In a subsequent tweet, Trump opened the door to another meeting once the recent incident with Ukraine is resolved: "I look forward to a meaningful Summit again as soon as this situation is resolved!"

Trump's visit will also put him in the same room as Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman for the first time since the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi.

Dmitry Peskov, Mr Putin's press secretary, was quoted as saying that the Kremlin only learnt about the cancellation from Mr Trump's tweet by Russian media.

"It is a provocation initiated by the current authorities, and I think by the [Ukrainian] president, in light of the upcoming elections to be held next year", Putin told an audience at an investment forum in Moscow, CNBC reported.

On Thursday, Trump announced he was canceling the meeting he had scheduled with Putin because of Russia's refusal to release Ukrainian sailors who were detained last Sunday during a standoff between Ukrainian and Russian troops in the Kerch Strait, which separates the Black Sea from the Sea of Azov. "The Ukrainian side has asked us to act wisely". "We don't like what's happening either way".

Cohen's Trump Tower Lies Were Part Of Mueller's Questions For Trump
At the time, he told the investigators that the Moscow project ended "before the Iowa caucus and months before the first primary". Trump has held out the possibility of a pardon to Manafort, who he says was treated "cruelly" by the investigation.

"Germany is one of our closest allies and we hope that states within North Atlantic Treaty Organisation are now ready to relocate naval ships to the Sea of Azov in order to assist Ukraine and provide security", he said.

Mr Trump is also to meet separately with Russia's Vladimir Putin and the leaders of Argentina, Germany, India, Japan, South Korea and Turkey, White House officials said. Ukraine isn't a member of the US -led military alliance.

The G-20 thus came of age amid USA weakness and culpability, at a time when the world was pointing fingers at Wall Street as the chief culprit in the Great Recession.

Sanders called the trip an opportunity for the president to cement relations with other world leaders and advance a global economic system based on "free, fair and reciprocal trade". Trump will strut his way through the G-20 sessions as is his wont, but he won't be able to avoid a lot of uncomfortable encounters. He said Trump is "not going away". A meeting can hardly be expected to take place in the near future.

Democratic U.S. Senator Bob Menendez of New Jersey said Trump was missing an "oppopportunity to redeem himself, stand up for American values, stand up for worldwide law, stand up for our own national security interests, and he had that opportunity and instead he's abdicating it".

In a phone call with Turkish counterpart Recep Tayyip Erdogan, Trump expressed "deep concern" at the incident, the White House said on Wednesday. However, the reason for our canceled meeting is Ukraine.

Trump has denied having any business deals in Russian Federation, and said Thursday that Cohen was lying.
