Clinton trolls Trump ahead of Putin summit with World Cup tweet

A man with a Putin mask and a rainbow flag attends a rally against the policy of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in central Helsinki Sunday

Finnish President Sauli Niinistö has expressed his hope that a wider importance is attached to the highly anticipated summit between Russian President Vladimir Putin and US President Donald Trump in Helsinki on Monday, 16 July.

Mr Trump called his meeting with Mr Putin "a good start, a very good start for everybody" as the two leaders and their top advisers sat across the table from one another during a luncheon.

"Again, this was during the Obama administration", Mr. Trump said.

"The president must appreciate that Russian Federation is not our ally", Ryan continued.

Just minutes before the press conference, a man holding a sign had a scuffle with security personnel and was escorted out of the room. According to the Associated Press, the individual identified himself as a reporter from the U.S. magazine The Nation and his protest sign was about nuclear weapons.

Rep. Liz Cheney of Wyoming, the daughter of former Vice President Dick Cheney, tweeted that she was "deeply troubled by President Trump's defense of Putin against the intelligence agencies of the US & his suggestion of moral equivalence between the USA and Russian Federation".

"Missed opportunity by President Trump to firmly hold Russian Federation accountable for 2016 meddling and deliver a strong warning regarding future elections", said South Carolina GOP Sen.

For his part, the USA president noted the two countries have "a great opportunity together". He then praised the Russian president for offering to cooperate with the investigation. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin.

"President Putin says it's not Russian Federation".

'It followed more than two hours of one-on-one discussions involving just the United States and Russian leaders, with only translators present.

Trump's predecessor, President Barack Obama, often pushed back against the frequent analyses of the body language in his meetings with Putin. "It will be determined by the heads of state themselves as they go along". These were the deliberate choices of a president who seems determined to realize his delusions of a warm relationship with Putin's regime without any regard for the true nature of his rule, his violent disregard for the sovereignty of his neighbors, his complicity in the slaughter of the Syrian people, his violation of global treaties, and his assault on democratic institutions throughout the world.

"Negotiations with Trump took place in an open and constructive atmosphere, I find them rather successful and useful", Putin added.

The two leaders agreed to cooperate more closely to fight terrorism, cybersecurity and nuclear nonproliferation.

Trump and Putin spent 90 minutes together in private, just days after the USA president was urged to cancel the summit.

"I don't see any reason why" Russian Federation would interfere in the election, Trump told reporters, also characterizing the probe by special counsel Robert S. Mueller III as "a disaster for our country". He also attacked his Democratic opponents and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and he said when asked about the election meddling that he held both countries accountable for their state of relations.

Graham quipped that Trump ought to check a soccer ball Putin gave to Trump for listening devices, "and never allow it in the White House".

But key Republicans, Democrats and others in Washington appeared stunned that Trump refused to publicly condemn Russian interference in the 2016 election or warn against future meddling during the joint press conference with Putin in Finland.

The Russian leader offered to interrogate the indicted Russian officials with Mueller's staff present, but only if the US interrogates American law enforcement and intelligence officials with Russians present about their "illegal actions" in Russia.

The closely-watched summit is not the first time the Russian and U.S. presidents have held talks. They met on the sidelines of world leader meetings in Germany and Vietnam past year.
