The singer ended his song with the rowdy recommendation that "Trump and Putin - piss off!" as the crowd erupted into wild cheers at Sunday's special summit-themed concert to cap off a march through downtown Helsinki. CBS News released excerpts Sunday, hours before Trump was set to fly to Helsinki for the summit. "I think that getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing", Trump told the program. "And I don't communicate with them either as you could find out if you consulted your friends in the Washington press corps, whom I don't communicate with", Bolton said. But we can predict with certainty that one subject is unlikely to dominate the strangely private tete-a-tete: the whole Russia-hacking-the-2016-election thing. "But that doesn't mean they are bad".
The lawmakers wrote that if Trump insists on meeting with the Russian president, that he should at least do so in the company of senior staff members so as not to be at a disadvantage to Putin.
"If President Trump is not prepared to hold Putin accountable, the summit in Helsinki should not move forward", said Republican Sen. In Paul's words - "They're another country". They do spy on us. By the way, he also knows the details of how to interfere in an American election.
Trump has said he will raise the issue of Russian election meddling, along with Syria, Ukraine, nuclear proliferation and other topics. "I think it's ridiculous". "I believe that having a meeting with Chairman Kim was a good thing", Trump said, referring to his summit last month with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un.
Bolton tells ABC's "This Week" on Sunday that the indictments show that the American justice system is aware of Russian efforts to meddle in USA elections.
"That is what the American side proposed and we are polite people, so we have agreed", Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said in a recent interview for Larry King's "Politicking", which airs on the Russia-backed RT network. Instead, Paul said Trump and other USA officials should focus on safeguarding upcoming elections from interference.
Mueller's charges came down Friday.
He also blamed the Democratic National Committee for "allowing themselves to be hacked". "He kind of goes in and wings it".

The leaders are holding a summit Monday in Helsinki.

"It isn't a summit", US Ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman told NBC'S Meet the Press.
Trump says in a television interview that he's going into the meeting with "low expectations".
Asked whether he would press his Russian counterpart to send to the United States members of the Russian military intelligence agency accused of hacking Hillary Clinton's failed presidential campaign, he said: "Well, I might".
Russian Federation has no extradition treaty with the U.S.so it is unlikely that the Russian Federation would turn them over to the U.S.to stand trial.
