Donald Trump Calls the European Union a 'Foe' of the U.S.

Trump names EU a global foe, raps media before Putin summit

Putin has denied Russian meddling in the election, which was won by Trump.

US President Donald Trump drives a golf buggy on his golf course at the Trump Turnberry resort in South Ayrshire, as part of their visit to the United Kingdom before leaving for Finland where he will meet Russian leader Vladimir Putin on Monday.

Trump professed confidence in the meeting and pointed to previous encounters with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un and Chinese President Xi Jinping as examples.

Trump told CBS News that he's going into the Helsinki summit with "low expectations".

She also noted Trump told her not to walk away from the Brexit negotiations, during their joint press conference.

Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer says the indictments are "further proof of what everyone but the president seems to understand: President Putin is an adversary who interfered in our elections to help President Trump win". "I hadn't thought of that". But again, this was during the Obama administration.

He described the European Union, a bloc of nation's that includes many of America's closest allies, as a "foe", particularly on trade.

Referring to Mueller's probe, he said: "We do have a - a political problem where - you know in the United States we have this stupidity going on".

The charges were brought as part of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into whether there was any collusion between Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation.

"They had bad defences and they were able to be hacked".

Croatia winger Ivan Perisic could miss the World Cup final against France
Croatia have never played a World Cup final and know they are on the brink of creating history and becoming legends in Croatia . We were there [in 2016], we were close to winning the title and we missed. "But I do not have a star".

"That's what one of the purposes of this meeting is, so the president can see eye to eye with President Putin and ask him about it", he said.

"Nothing bad is going to come out of it (Helsinki), and maybe some good will come out", Trump said. "I think we could probably get along very well", Trump said in an interview with the Mail on Sunday, answering a question if Putin was a ruthless person.

Democratic U.S. Sen. Dick Durbin said charges brought last week against Russian agents accused of interfering with the 2016 presidential election is something "we ought to take personally in Illinois" because the state's voter database was a target. But I heard they were trying to hack the Republicans too.

The two leaders are also expected to hold a news conference to conclude the summit, where they are all but certain to face multiple questions about the indictment from US reporters.

The summit with Putin is set to happen on Monday in Helsinki, Finland. He is also the co-author of How Trump Won: The Inside Story of a Revolution, which is available from Regnery.

"The DNC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked".

After the indictments were announced, top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer called on Trump to cancel his meeting with Putin until Russian Federation takes steps to prove it won't interfere in future elections.

"I don't go around telling the president what to do", said Jay Ashcroft, the Republican secretary of state in Missouri. He told CBS News that the Democratic Party was also to blame for not better securing its computer equipment.

In all, some 16 protests against both Trump and Putin's are expected to take place in the Finnish capital on Sunday and Monday. The US leader added that he doesn't necessarily view them negatively.

Former ambassador Nicholas Burns, a critic of Trump's foreign policy who held State Department positions in the George W Bush administration, tweeted: "Key issue for Trump-Putin Summit - Putin fired the first salvo in a new cyber war against the USA in 2016".
