US President lists Russia, EU, China as 'foes' ahead of Putin summit

Trump Declares EU a 'Foe,' Alongside Russia and China

He then added that "Russia is foe in certain respects", and that China was one economically, though he insisted that he wasn't judging the countries to be "bad", but just meant that they were "competitive".

"I think that getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing", he said.

"I think the president can put this on table and say this a serious matter and we need to talk about it", Bolton said.

"I think we could probably get along very well".

"I will absolutely bring that up", Trump said of Russian meddling in the 2016 election. "Now, you wouldn't think of the European Union, but they're a foe", the President said.

"These actions are persistent, they are pervasive, and they are meant to undermine America's democracy on a daily basis regardless of whether it is election time or not", he said. It doesn't mean anything. However, Continetti said the Trump administration officials won't make the mistake of trusting Putin and the Russian government after they broke a Syrian cease-fire agreement a year ago. "They want to do well and we want to do well", he added.

Trump, who is on a seven-day, three-nation European trip flew in from Scotland, where he and his wife, Melania, spent the weekend at his golf resort.

German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas has warned Trump against making any unilateral deals with Russian Federation that come with a cost for the United States' Western allies. Trump responded by calling her the "puppet". Maybe the thing that's most hard ― don't forget both my parents were born in European Union sectors, OK? Aram.... what exactly did President Trump have to say?

Trump landed in the capital city, Helsinki, late Sunday. His grandfather Frederick Trump was born in Germany.

Paul said both countries spy on each other but adds that Russian interference in the 2016 election isn't "morally equivalent" to US interference in Russian elections, but "I think in their mind it is". I respect the leaders of those countries.

Trump repeated his previous assertion that the European Union has "really taken advantage of us on trade".

He reiterated a criticism he made of Germany during a tense North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) summit in Brussels last week, namely that the country should not have agreed to the Nord Stream 2 pipeline project with Russian Federation.

Trump taped the interview Saturday in Scotland.

Interviewed on ABC'S "This Week", Bolton said the summit will start with a "direct one-on-one conversation" between Trump and Putin and what happens from there "will be determined by the two parties". "I think it's ridiculous".

Trump has repeatedly said the investigation into suspected Russian interference in the 2016 USA election - which he casts as a "rigged witch hunt" - makes it hard for him to do substantive deals with Moscow.
