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

Lawmakers have urged President Donald Trump to cancel his summit with President Vladimir Putin of Russia following Special Counsel Robert Mueller's indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officials accused of hacking DNC servers in 2016. "The weather is lovely, and this place is incredible!"

Trump, on the third day of his four-day trip to Britain, was on a private visit to his Turnberry luxury golf resort in southwest Scotland ahead of Monday's summit in Helsinki.

A federal grand jury on Friday alleged that officers of Russia's military intelligence agency, the GRU, secretly monitored computers and stole data from the campaign of Trump's former rival, Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

The summit decisions, agreed by all 29 allied governments, won hardly any sustained public attention and the underlying unity was undercut by Trump's claims he had won new pledges in defense spending, forcing the French and Italian leaders into denials that dominated post-summit news conferences.

For Putin, it's a win just to meet one-on-one with the USA leader, whose campaign is under investigation back home over whether Trump associates colluded with the Kremlin effort to help get Trump elected.

"I will absolutely, firmly ask the question" to Putin, Trump said at a press conference with British Prime Minister Theresa May.

House Foreign Affairs Chairman Ed Royce, a California Republican, said in a statement Friday that Trump "should use today's indictments to challenge" Putin at the meeting.

As the French President Emmanuel Macron, who maintains one of the most genial personal relationships with Trump of any world leader, made clear soon after Trump's news conference, North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies did nothing more than recommit themselves to the previously agreed 2% of GDP defense spending by 2024. The "Trump baby" blimp depicting the president as a diaper-clad infant, unveiled Friday amid widespread protests against the president in London, also made an appearance.

"The state of bilateral relations is very bad", said Ushakov.

With country roads to the golf course cordoned off, and aides mum about the president's activities on a sunny Saturday morning, he gave a lens into his mind around 11 a.m. local time. But the mixed messaging has left America's friends and allies confused, particularly after a contentious North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit where Trump questioned the value of the alliance that Putin has long denounced and sought to weaken. North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies have also increased defense spending by $33 billion in the a year ago, which led Trump to ask Friday: "Do you think Putin's happy about that?"

Schumer is also suggesting that Trump reconsider his meeting with Putin until the Russians are able to prove there will be no further interference with US elections.

Sen. Bob Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, also called for "the Russian spies indicted by the United States for interfering in the 2016 USA presidential election". "They didn't!" Acosta had objected to Trump dismissing the news outlet as "fake news".

Trump called the idea "dishonest reporting" and criticized both NBC and CNN. Acosta also replied to Trump on Twitter. Perhaps we should even the playing field next time and you can take my question.

He also tweeted his request to Trump saying, "President Trump must be willing to confront #Putin from a position of strength & demonstrate there will be a price to pay for his ongoing aggression".
