Tusk throws pointed barbs at Trump on Twitter

Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin are to meet in Helsinki next week, just as American officials indicted several Russian intelligence members for hacking activity during the 2016 usa presidential election. Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating possible links between Trump campaign associates and Russian Federation as part of his probe into Moscow's attempts to interfere in the 2016 election. Among senior Democrats, concern remains that he may do just that when he meets Putin three days after 12 Russians were indicted over the theft of data from Democratic bodies ahead of the 2016 election.

Russian hacking of the 2016 US presidential election would also be a top item on the agenda, the ambassador said.

"We could start there", says Dingell.

Bolton also said he finds it "hard to believe" that Putin was not aware of an effort by Russian military intelligence officials to interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

The United States has no extradition treaty with Moscow and can not compel Russian Federation to hand over citizens.

Meanwhile, Trump said "nothing bad. maybe some good" will come out of his summit with Putin.

The Observatory said at least 30 Iraqi fighters were killed in the strike near the town of Albu Kamal on the Syria Iraq border. In Syria it operates in support of the Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF), an alliance of militias that includes Kurds.

Trump said in a Saturday interview he had "low expectations" for the meeting, and planned to ask about extraditing the indicted intelligence officers.

She told the BBC: "He told me I should sue the European Union - not go into negotiations".

Others take on the issue of the day, with one reading, "Trump furious over leaks and blames media for complicating meeting with Putin". Trump did congratulate Putin on his victory, a source told CNN at the time.

"He has already said that he has asked Putin about meddling, Putin told him he didn't do it, and he believed him", Murphy said.

After Trump labelled the EU a "foe", Donald Tusk, president of the European Council, responded on Twitter, using one of Trump's favourite stock phrases.

Finland has a long legacy of hosting US-Russian summits because of its perceived neutrality and geographic location, as per several media reports. "Because it's like - what are they waving a white flag?"

Kerber should in theory pose a much sterner test in what is a repeat of the 2016 final, which Williams won in straight sets. Kerber made just five unforced errors compared to Williams' 24 as the German reversed the result of the 2016 final.

The US President has taken aim at the EU, Russia and China in an interview with CBS.

Donald Trump named the European Union as a foe to the United States. CBS News released excerpts on Sunday, hours before Mr Trump was set to fly to Helsinki, where he will meet with Mr Putin.

"Of course not. Really, honestly, Jonathan, I think the question's silly", he said.

Trump added others to his list, but in milder terms.

Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., rejected Bolton's assertion that the indictments put Trump in a stronger position going in to the meeting. But Trump has consistently resisted the suggestion that he confront Putin over the matter, saying Putin has repeatedly denied involvement.
