Trump blames Obama for ceding Crimea to Russian Federation

President Donald Trump is reportedly insistent on setting up a summit between himself and Russian President Vladimir Putin, amid a continuing investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and despite internal protests from White House aides about the political optics of such a potential summit.

Trump, in his remarks, blamed former President Barack Obama for losing Crimea, claiming it was his "fault" because "Putin didn't respect President Obama". The White House hasn't commented on his words. "He wants to have a meeting with Putin, so he's going to have a meeting with Putin".

"Putin seeks to shatter North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, he aims to diminish the appeal of the western democratic model and attempts to undermine America's moral authority", Mattis said.

A news program on Russia's state television network celebrated this week after seeing a report about President Donald Trump standing up for Russian interests at last week's G7 meeting in Quebec.

President Donald Trump is nearly certainly correct that better relations between the United States and Russian Federation would be a good thing, but his belief that Russian Federation should be immediately reinstated into the club of the world's major industrial democracies has confounded US allies.

The game sprung into life after 58 minutes when France were awarded a penalty with the help of Video Assistant Referee ( VAR ). The French did not impress in the final third of the field and their defence often looked shaky.

Shortly after that brief, five-day war a decade ago in August, Russia recognized the independence of the Georgian enclaves of Abkhazia and South Ossetia and has continued to occupy them without significant consequences in violation of a cease-fire agreement negotiated by France.

Trump added: "It may not be politically correct, but we have a world to run".

The move bucks not only Trump's critics but even members of his own party. He repeated this position later in an interview to Fox News after the summit.

"You know, we spend probably 25 percent of our time talking about Russian Federation and I said wouldn't it be better if they were here", Trump said.

Except within a few breaths of suggesting Obama's weakness had allowed Putin to take Crimea, Trump was talking about wanting to be nicer to Russian Federation and Putin and reconstitute the G8 with Russian Federation as a member. "I'm for the United States".
