CNN’s John Avlon Condemns Trump’s Tweet on Russian Meddling: He’s ‘Parroting Putin’

Trump and Putin to Hold Summit In 'Next Few Weeks'

Putin's Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov had told reporters after a meeting between the Russian president and US National Security Adviser John Bolton on Wednesday that the details of the summit would be announced on Thursday. More vexing have been the fallout in relations over such issues as Ukraine, Syria, Western sanctions, and allegations the Kremlin was responsible for the poisoning of a former Russian spy on British soil last March.

The White House said the two leaders will discuss US-Russian relations and "a range of national security issues".

Nato's chief welcomed the talks, saying "dialogue is a sign of strength".

Trump has continually parroted the Kremlin's denial of election interference, a move that has put him out of step with the findings of the USA intelligence community and almost all Democrats and Republicans in Congress, who say there's clear evidence of Russian efforts to influence the 2016 U.S. presidential campaign.

Both Washington and Moscow have expressed a desire to find common ground on issues such as arms control and combating terrorism.

"I am confident that when the president meets with Vladimir Putin, he will make clear that meddling in our elections is absolutely unacceptable", Pompeo added.

"We bombed Assad, they did absolutely nothing because the Russians don't have the capability", Kinzinger said.

President Donald Trump continues to cast doubt on United States intelligence assessments that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential contest, just as his aides announced details of his upcoming summit talks with President Vladimir Putin.

In Moscow, Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said it was best not to get too excited about what the summit might yield.

"It's absolutely, totally in line with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation policies to talk to Russia, to meet with Russian leaders". Helsinki was the backdrop for President Gerald Ford's meeting with Soviet General Secretary Brezhnev in 1975, President George H.W. Bush's meeting with Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev in 1990 and President Bill Clinton's summit with President Boris Yeltsin in 1997. We don't want and we don't need to be loved.

CBS News' Mark Knoller reports that this will be the latest in a series of presidential visits to Helsinki for diplomatic talks with their Russian counterparts.

Observers note that most presidential summits take months of planning and negotiations to present the right "optics" and "deliverables" worthy of a meeting at the highest level. They have also made positive comments about each other now and then with Putin lauding Trump's handling of the USA economy. "We hope it will play a very important role in helping begin the normalization of Russia-US ties".
