Trump: Putin Meeting May Be 'Easiest'

Tuesday, 10 July 2018 07:58 AM

President Donald Trump said Tuesday he "can't say right now" if Russian President Vladimir Putin is a friend or foe.

Trump spoke to reporters Tuesday before departing the White House for a trip that will take him to a NATO summit meeting, bilateral meetings in the United Kingdom and a sit-down with Putin in Helsinki next week.

"I think Putin may be the easiest of them all," he said, calling Putin a "competitor."

Trump predicted tough negotiations with NATO over defense spending.

He adds: "I think that getting along with Russia, getting along with China, getting along with others is a good thing, not a bad thing."
