Trump says hopes to play golf in Scotland ahead of Putin meeting

John Kerry scolds President Trump for ‘disgraceful’ behavior – here’s why

"We're having a great meeting".

But Putin and Trump will hold a joint press conference, he added.

Other Democrats joining the call to jettison the meeting included Senator Richard Blumenthal of CT and Representative Adam Schiff of California, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee.

In reply to the question about what he hopes to accomplish in Monday's meeting with Putin, Trump said the two would be talking about Ukraine, Syria, other parts of the Middle East, nuclear proliferation.

"The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration", Trump wrote.

"The stories you heard about the 12 Russians yesterday took place during the Obama Administration, not the Trump Administration", Trump tweeted, asking why they didn't "do something about it, especially when it was reported that President Obama was informed by the Federal Bureau of Investigation in September, before the Election?"

"This indictment makes clear just how vast this operation was - including Russian intelligence officers' intrusion into the website of a state election board and theft of information related to approximately 500,000 voters", Democratic National Committee (DNC) chair Tom Perez tweeted.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said Friday at the Department of Justice that he briefed Trump on the coming indictments earlier this week. When asked at a news conference in Britain on Friday whether he would tell Putin to stay out of U.S. elections, Trump said "yes". But he suggested there was little point to the exercise.

"Personally, I don't really want President Trump in the room with Putin".

"I don't think you'll have any 'Gee, I did it, I did it, you got me, '" Trump said.

The source said the discussion would also be an opportunity for both leaders to draw their positions on the Syrian crisis closer.

"He said he didn't meddle". "If we can do something to substantially reduce them [nuclear weapons], I mean, ideally get rid of them, maybe that's a dream, but certainly it's a subject that I'll be bringing up with him", Trump stressed.

The summit is set for July 16 in Helsinki, and plans for their meeting do not appear to be slowing down despite the new revelations.

North Atlantic Treaty Organisation may now need its friends in the U.S. Congress and in the Republican and Democratic parties to speak out more to prevent permanent damage to alliance's image in the United States, they said.

The announcement of the indictments came at the same time as Trump arrived for his much-anticipated meeting with Queen Elizabeth II during his London visit.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, speaking to reporters before his departure to Helsinki on Sunday, pushed back at Democrats who called for the summit to be cancelled.

Russia's foreign ministry claimed there was no evidence to indicate that the 12 had links to the Russian military intelligence or that they had hacked into the Democratic Party's network. The Russians are charged with stealing user names and passwords of volunteers in Democrat Hillary Clinton's presidential campaign, including its chairman John Podesta.

"It's a big FU from Mueller", a White House official said in an interview with Politico.

"We need to stay on the course that President Trump's policies are - rebuild American military strength, strengthen North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, get NATO to get spend money on their own defense, and stop having Europe make these multi-billion dollar oil and gas deals with Russian Federation".

"What Trump does and says in America is a matter for the Americans". "We do have a political problem where - you know in the United States we have this stupidity going on".

"But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation". "I love the United States but I love getting along with Russian Federation and China and other countries". He was also seen posing for photos.

Trump's lawyer, Rudy Giuliani, said on Twitter that the indictments were "good news for all Americans".
