Cooper: Trump's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation grievance not factual

Cooper: Trump's North Atlantic Treaty Organisation grievance not factual

"Putin has consistently said I was not involved in the hacking of your computers, involvement in your elections, and the president has said 'I believe him when he says that.'" he continued.

House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi told reporters that Trump needs to get something more than, "I asked him, he said no and that was that", from Putin.

Despite Russia's semi-pariah status among some Americans and United States allies, the Kremlin has always been trying to arrange a summit, betting that Putin and Trump will get on well and stop a sharp downwards spiral in bilateral ties.

Rosenstein said he had briefed Trump about the allegations earlier this week and said the timing of the announcement was a coincidence.

"The fact that we had this open discussion has also clearly stated that we will redouble our efforts and it also shows that a clear message from President Trump is having an impact".

He left open the possibility of recognising Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine.

The president then urged reporters to listen to a full recording of the interview, which he said would give the full picture.

The top Democrat on the Foreign Relations Committee, Sen.

"These indictments are further proof of what everyone but the president seems to understand: President Putin is an adversary who interfered in our elections to help President Trump win", Schumer said.

In the piece, Trump said he advised May on how to handle the exit from the European Union and said he "would have done it much differently".

When Trump was asked about his threat to pull the USA out of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, he said that idea was no longer necessary and mentioned the member nations' financial commitments. A weak EU, North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) and other global alliances strengthen Russian Federation and serve Putin's interest both at home and globally. He answered by blaming former President Barack Obama for not doing enough at the time to respond to the crisis. "Let's find a cure to every disease known to mankind or womankind". A possible deal could see Syrian troops replacing Iranian forces and the proxy Hezbollah militia in the areas near the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights.

Or will they continue to embarrass themselves by wasting valuable taxpayer time and money by using what should be very serious oversight responsibilities to hold additional fake hearings and witch hunts of their own? "If you don't have deliverables, nobody wants a summit because you going to be questioned: why did you got meet this person, [and] shook hands if you have nothing to sign?"

And today, a spokeswoman for Mrs May insisted the Prime Minister has a good relationship with Mr Trump and is confident a trade deal can be agreed with the United States.

That sentiment is shared by the Kremlin.

But it is unclear whether Trump's desire to reconcile with Putin is driven by a strategic vision or simply by his penchant for contrarian governance.

Michal Baranowski of the German Marshall Fund think tank said the substance of Trump's message on Nord Stream 2 was very much in line with what many people in the region and beyond think.

"I will absolutely, firmly ask the question" about interference in the US election, Trump said at a news conference with U.K. Prime Minister Theresa May at Chequers, her country estate.

"It reflects the way Trump and certainly some of the people in his orbit view things", Jeff Mankoff, deputy director of the Washington-based Centre for Strategic and International Studies, said in a phone interview.
