Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said on NBC's Meet the Press on Sunday that he's concerned when Trump tweets that Russian Federation denies interfering in the US elections.
U.S. President Donald Trump speaks to reporters aboard Air Force One on June 29, 2018.
"The two leaders will discuss relations between the United States and Russian Federation and a range of national security issues", the White House said in a statement. "That's why the president is going to talk to him about it again".
"I think the president often says "we'll see" to show that he's willing to talk to foreign leaders about a range of issues and hear their perspective", Bolton said.
Bolton, who met with Putin in Moscow on June 27, told CBS's Face The Nation that "President Putin was pretty clear with me about it and my response was we're going to have to agree to disagree on Ukraine".
"Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!".
The two leaders will meet on July 16 in Helsinki, Finland, where they will discuss relations between the two countries as well as "national security issues", the White House has said. "He wasn't always going to agree with what Britain or France or whatever wanted, but you knew ultimately you were close allies and friends", he told Zakaria.
While the meddling allegations have been repeatedly dismissed by both Putin and Trump, they have sparked a special counsel investigation in Washington and multiple congressional investigations which have come to different conclusions.
Peskov explained that President Vladimir Putin is ready to discuss "all the other questions" in the "search for potential common ground".
"The two leaders will discuss relations between the United States and Russian Federation and a range of national security issues", the statement said.
The Helsinki summit will be Mr. Trump's 3rd set of meetings with Putin after the G20 in Hamburg in July 2017 and the APEC Summit in Da Nang, in November 2017. "Show him the evidence you've got, Mr. President, because it's overwhelming".
Asked if the USA might recognize Crimea to be part of Russian Federation, he said, "We're to have to see" and then said the situation was handled "unfortunately" by his predecessor, President Barack Obama.
Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and the sanctions imposed on Russian Federation by the United States in response, and its military intervention in the war in Syria to support President Bashar al-Assad are major causes of strain in the two countries' relations.
"That's not the position of the United States".
