Russian Studies Professor: US-Russia Relations Are 'More Dangerous' Than Ever Before

Thanks, in significant part to the presidency of Donald Trump, Putin has already achieved (or had handed to him) most of the big foreign policy goals he set for himself when he successfully won a six-year term earlier this year, Hayes said. The bilateral summit nonetheless will be closely watched, amid concern from world leaders and USA lawmakers alike that the president may be too friendly toward a known adversary of the United States.

Trump, bent on forging a personal bond with the Kremlin chief despite allegations of Russian meddling in USA politics, went into the summit blaming the "stupidity" of his predecessors for plunging ties to their present low.

Trump's tweet says: "Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of US foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!".

The U.S. president has expressed reluctance to hold Putin to account for Moscow's election meddling and has indicated he accepts the Russian president's denials at face value. The US president said that the bilateral meetings had gotten off to a "very good start", after both leaders met for more than two hours behind closed doors, with only translators present. "We ran a brilliant campaign and that's why I'm president", he said.

"I'm not going in with high expectations but we may come out with some very surprising things", Trump said during his United Kingdom news conference.

"With Trump, you have to keep in mind his ego politics, and he's anxious to get good reviews, especially in comparisons to previous presidents", Hayes said, especially previous Republican presidents.

Later on Obama will be leaving for South Africa where he will deliver the 16th Nelson Mandela Annual Lecture in Johannesburg. Obama is also expected to meet Raila Odinga , the opposition leader now working with Kenyatta's government.


"This is an attempt to see if we can defuse and take some of the drama, and quite frankly some of the danger, out of the relationship", Jon Huntsman, the USA ambassador to Russian Federation, said Sunday. Trump and Putin finally entered the Gothic Hall in the Finnish presidential palace at 2:10 p.m.

Trump is calling his meeting with Putin "a good start, a very good start for everybody" as the two leaders and their top advisers sat across the table from one another during a luncheon. He indicated the talks were wide-ranging and covered nuclear non-proliferation, Middle Eastern affairs in Israel and Syria, Iran and the nuclear deal and Trump's recent negotiations with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un. Trump said, as he has countless times, that there was "no collusion" between his campaign and the Russians.

"If it were me, I'd check the soccer ball for listening devices and never allow it in the White House", Graham said.

More protests followed Trump to Finland on Monday, ahead of his meeting with Putin. "We will be talking a little bit about China, our mutual friend, President Xi", Trump was quoted as saying by ANI.

The meddling fits a pattern of Russia interfering in other elections on its periphery, and the Justice Department issued a detailed indictment of Russians that states their names, pseudonyms, and cites the times they hacked and emailed individual Democratic staffers. He added: "There are quite a few of them for us to pay attention to". "I don't really, I can't tell you what's going to happen".

The indictment does not answer the question of whether the Russians were reacting to Trump's speech. "And we get along in Syria too", he said. After Trump concluded his remarks, American reporters shouted several questions about whether he would bring up election meddling during his discussions with Putin.
