Associate McCain pointed out Trump how to negotiate with Putin

Associate McCain pointed out Trump how to negotiate with Putin

Also atop Trump's summit agenda should be attempted Russian interference - past and quite possibly future - in the USA election process. This seems inexplicable given the Russian leader's support for the war criminal Bashar al-Assad in Syria, his illegal invasion of Ukraine and annexation of Crimea, and above all the Russian intrusion into the USA political process in 2016 and since-which Trump refuses to recognize.

- Weaken NATO by sowing doubt with our allies whether the USA would come to their assistance if needed.

- As the German government of Chancellor Angela Merkel faced a crisis with partners in her domestic political coalition (themselves under threat from farther-right parties) trying to force harsher treatment of refugees, the administration weighed in repeatedly against Merkel; and on the Fourth of July, the US ambassador to Germany appeared to endorse far-right party members. This relationship is the main deterrent keeping Putin from taking over more of Eastern Europe.

Tobias Bunde, the head of policy and analysis at the Munich Security Conference, went even further telling AFP "whether North Atlantic Treaty Organisation can survive his presidency might very well be up to debate". But if one listens just to her boss, it is not a stretch to wonder just how unified such an worldwide body can be if its most influential and wealthy member appears skeptical of its necessity and the manner in which it is funded. A+ for Trump on this one.

He then laced into German Chancellor Angela Merkel, who will be in attendance in Brussels, complaining about how much the United States put toward Germany's defense: "And I said, you know, Angela, I can't guarantee it, but we're protecting you, and it means a lot more to you".

"And we are standing behind them on that", she said. "And we're the schmucks paying for the whole thing".

During a rally in Montana on Thursday, Trump mocked critics of his approach and preparation for the summit with Putin.

Saying that he wants to improve relations with Moscow, Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on conclusions by the nation's intelligence agencies that Russian Federation tried to help him win the 2016 election, noting that Putin has "strongly" denied being behind the interference.

It also makes sense for Trump to speak with Putin and to be able to tell him he'd like his behavior to change, and that's what he is doing, the ambassador said. Although Trump is personally obsessed with them, the sad fact is that the USA auto industry now manufactures relatively little that is of interest to the European market, where gas is expensive, cars are small, and targets for moving off gasoline power entirely are coming up fast.

Trump has drawn criticism from members of both parties since taking office for his hesitance to speak out against Putin and Russian Federation, particularly over its attempts to interfere in the 2016 election. "They are still trying to undermine the election cycle in 2018", said Lindsey Graham.

And he commiserated with Mr. Putin over Trump administration officials whom the Russian president said had tried to prevent the call from happening, according to a person with direct knowledge of the conversation. There's only one trade-off that should be on the table: President Putin, give back Crimea to Ukraine. Buried in the Post's article, mostly about Trump's relationship with American allies, are two incredibly troubling paragraphs, based off of claims made by senior White House officials. In fact, they're howling already.

Trump directly addressed German Chancellor Angela Merkel at the rally in the USA state of Montana, saying: "You know, Angela.we are protecting you and it means a lot more to you.because I don't know how much protection we get by protecting you".

But Hutchinson, and the USA ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman, gave upbeat assessments of the upcoming meetings.

"It does concern me", the Arizona senator told CNN's Dana Bash on "State of the Union" Sunday.

Despite Trump's criticism, Ischinger said the transatlantic alliance is in its best shape in years, given rising military spending and efforts to shore up defenses in the Baltic states and Poland after Russia's illegal annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula in 2014. That's not a sustainable long-term foundation for any foreign policy.
