  • Russian President Vladimir Putin speaks during a press conference after the meeting of U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki Finland Monday

Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Democrats called on Trump to cancel the meeting with Putin. He said on Twitter as he left for Helsinki he was "looking forward to meeting with President Putin".

Trump and Putin then sat across from each other at a working lunch with high-level aides, including Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and national security adviser John Bolton. The summit also started almost an hour late.

He vowed not to be "taken advantage" of by the European Union, which he accuses of freeloading by relying on the U.S. for its defence while blocking USA imports into the bloc, the world's biggest market.

The US and Russian presidents came out of their meeting in Helsinki Monday expressing desire for a fresh start between the world's leading nuclear powers and more talk on global challenges, after discussing an array of issues from Syria, Ukraine and China to trade tariffs and the size of their nuclear arsenals.

After a stormy North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels last week, Trump was accused by critics of cosying up to Putin while undermining the alliance.

"President Obama thought that Crooked Hillary was going to win the election, so when he was informed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation about Russian Meddling, he said it couldn't happen, was no big deal, & did NOTHING about it", Trump said.

Sen. Ben Sasse, R-Neb., called it "bizarre" and "flat-out wrong" for Trump to suggest that both countries are to blame for their deteriorated relationship.

Trump tells CBS News that he watched some of Peter Strzok's (struhkz) testimony to Congress while traveling in Europe. The body language should say that the United States knows what Russian Federation did (and is still doing), we're angry about it and it will not be tolerated.

He told Glor that he "hadn't thought about" asking Putin for the extradition of the Russian agents, but he said he might bring it up.

Question for President Trump as he meets Putin: "Do you know which team you play for?"

Trump again denied any collusion between his campaign and the Kremlin, while Putin insisted: "The Russian state has never interfered and is not planning to interfere in the USA's internal affairs".

The reason for Putin's delay was not clear. "Vladimir Putin is a trained KGB agent".

As U.S. President Donald Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin prepare to meet in Helsinki Monday, thousands of Finns took to the streets.

"You wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe".

Just three days ago, the U.S. Justice Department announced an indictment of 12 Russian spies for hacking into Democratic Party computer networks.

"Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all".

"You can't solve problems if you're not talking about them", said Jon Huntsman, the USA ambassador to Russian Federation, in a briefing before the meeting. The collective blood pressure between the United States and Russian Federation is off the charts high.

President Donald Trump's ambassador to Moscow says he hopes Trump and Russia's Vladimir Putin have "a detailed conversation about where we might be able to find some overlapping and shared interests".

President Donald Trump waves while playing a round of golf at Trump Turnberry Luxury Collection Resort during his first official visit to the United Kingdom on Sunday.

One notable thing not mentioned in Trump's list of planned discussion points?

"I think it's pretty silly for the president to demand something that he can't get legally, " Bolton said. It was a little bit tough at the beginning, but it turned out to be love.
