Trump will focus on Russia's 'malign' activity at summits

Trump and US delegation to bring up election meddling with Putin

The U.S. ambassador to Russian Federation on Thursday described President Donald Trump's one-on-one meeting with Russia's Vladimir Putin in Helsinki later this month as an accomplishment "in itself".

The subject came up on Outnumbered today, when the panel talked about how Trump not only wants to meet with Putin one-on-one, and the indications that no Democrats were invited to the meeting in Finland.

Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin will meet alone at the summit because the president decided that this is the right time for direct communication, said Mr. Huntsman.

This will be the first time the two have met for a formal summit.

"The president believes a better relationship with Russia would be good for both America and Russia, but the ball really is in Russia's court and the president will continue to hold Russia accountable for its malign activity", Huntsman said on a conference call.

While the senior administration official said the summit must focus on carrying out a "sober assessment of the root causes" of problems in the US-Russia, the official also called the summit "a deliverable in itself".

Senate Intel agrees with assessment that Russian Federation meddled to help Trump
Future updates on the Russian interference probe should be released in the not-too-distant future, Chairman Richard M. As previously reported "FACTS", July 16, in Helsinki Donald trump will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Mr. Putin is not expected to budge on key areas of conflict with the West, including the annexation of Crimea, support of separatist movements in eastern Ukraine and backing President Bashar Assad's regime in Syria.

Huntsman said the president will bring up an array of malign activity in which Russian Federation has been engaged, including meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

"We're entering with our eyes wide open, but peace is always worth the effort", Huntsman said.

The senior administration official stressed that while United States officials have "repeatedly" raised election meddling in meetings with Russian officials, "the fact of the matter is we have not had the kinds of conversations, direct conversations, across the table conversations about things like election meddling and malign activity that really do need to take place".

Trump will embark on a trip to Europe next Tuesday, which will include attending the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels and a stop in the United Kingdom before arriving in Finland.
