News Trump's Pressure On NATO Is Working, US Ambassador Claims

NATO Braces For Trump, White House Says Business As Usual

Sources told the newspaper Kommersantthat the Kremlin has submitted a two-page document to the White House with a first draft of a potential statement Moscow hopes Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin will make at the conclusion of their Helsinki summit next week.

During a phone call with Mr. Putin in March, when the president was urged by aides not to congratulate the Russian president on his electoral victory, Mr. Trump did just that. Most participants in the poll (62%) believe that Putin's chief objective during the negotiations would be resolving bilateral issues, while Trump would try to strengthen the United States' position (71%).

The official, speaking on a call with reporters, portrayed the Helsinki meeting - which comes just four days after North Atlantic Treaty Organisation - as one in a long line of outreach opportunities American presidents have undertaken: "In the end, I think it's fair to say since the end of the Cold War each president has tried a reset of the relationship, but it has led to a boom and bust cycle" that has left the relationship in worse shape each time.

Trump has shown his affinity for closed-door meetings already during his historic summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un last month.

9 stabbed in 'evil,' unprovoked spree at apartment complex
In total, nine people were attacked, including six children, in the horrific incident at a Wylie Street apartment complex. The girl was flown to Salt Lake City for treatment, where she died, Boise police said Monday. "He is an American".

Democratic Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia described Trump's desire to make nice with Russian Federation as "very problematic".

On the surface, such communication between two leaders would not be that alarming, but pundits on both sides of the isle worry that the President appears to be taking his rhetoric, lies and propaganda to the American people, directly from the leader of a hostile foreign power. A quarter of the survey's participants hoped for an improvement in relations, while nine percent say that relations will deteriorate even further.

"We are seeing Russian Federation with malign activities on so many fronts right now, especially the hybrid area where they are through social media sowing discontent and even false information to try to divide our allies and take them away from the West and toward some dissidents and then hopefully they think influenced by them", the Envoy says. But if the president really trusts the handshake promise of a murderous dictator to give up the nuclear weapons he sees as an airtight insurance policy, then the president is a fool. The leaked conversations of President Trump in which he asks the feasibility and cost of the high degree of withdrawal from Europe is one such matter. "This is not fair, nor is it acceptable", he said. Still, Chancellor Angela Merkel, in a weekly podcast Saturday, said Germany would increase defense spending in its 2019 budget, suggesting that Trump's complaints are paying off.

"Instead of viewing it that way, he views it as "The U.S. has been played"...and it's always this 'They're laughing at us, '" he added.
