European Union is a foe, says Donald Trump

European Union is a foe, says Donald Trump

A federal grand jury on Friday charged 12 Russian intelligence officers with hacking Democratic computer networks in 2016, in the most detailed USA accusation yet that Moscow meddled in the presidential election to help Republican Donald Trump.

Speaking ahead of his summit meeting on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin and after a tumultuous week in Europe, Trump said that European leaders were taking advantage of the USA and failing to boost defense spending despite demands from Washington.

The Trump-Putin summit is still on despite a Friday bombshell from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who indicted a dozen Russian military officers for their efforts to interfere in the 2016 US election.

Of the summit as a whole, he said: "I'm not going with high expectations" but insisted: "I think it's a good thing to meet".

When asked Friday about relenting to Russian Federation on the status of Crimea, Mr. Trump said, "We'll see what happens" at the summit.

In the CBS interview, Trump also asserted that the GOP was similarly not hacked during the 2016 campaign because the Republican National Committee had better cybersecurity.

In the interview with CBS, Trump said he "might" press Putin to extradite the indicted Russians. "I believe that having a meeting with Chairman Kim was a good thing", he said of North Korea's supreme leader whom he met last month in Singapore. "Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out", the president said in broadcast excerpts. "We can do more, so if you want to do an arms race you'll lose", according to the report.

The police said 16 or more demonstrations were registered before and during the summit, and on Sunday around 2,500 people got together at the Helsinki city center Senate Square to protest against the summit and Trump.

The Kremlin on Friday said it considered Mr Trump a "negotiating partner".

Senator Rand Paul suggested that Mr Trump not even bother to press Mr Putin on election meddling because "he's not going to admit that he did it". "I don't believe we've put enough resources as a nation into investigating what happened two years ago and making sure it never happens again".

He also talked about how his mother, who was born in Scotland, loved the royal family and all things pomp and pageantry. The President wore a suit and tie and the first lady wore a pale pink Dior suit with matching skirt and black belt.

They are accused of using keystroke reading software to spy on the chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and hack into the party's computers.

Despite his comments about the European Union - in which he also said that Russian Federation is a "foe in certain respects" and "China is a foe economically" - Trump signed a communique at the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit that had been agreed to by their ambassadors last weekend, five days before the summit began. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe.

However, in an interview on ABC's This Week, National Security Adviser John Bolton said that the meeting with Putin would be "unstructured" and that Trump would not demand "deliverables".

"I go in with very low expectations".

Also during the interview, he labeled Russian Federation, the European Union and China as foes to the United States. "We have some very real issues".

Sen. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, said it's inevitable that Russian Federation will interfere in United States elections and that it's pointless for Trump to confront Putin about it.

Mr Trump and his government have softened their expectations for the meeting, and are reportedly not setting the bar high for a tangible result with the Russian President.

Trump and Putin have held talks several times before.

Trump added although he respects European Union leaders, he described the 28-member bloc as "very hard".
