Trump and Putin: Nordic media will not be bullied

Trump said he plans to raise election meddling with Putin when they meet at the Finnish presidential palace in Helsinki, but has also said he doesn't expect Putin to ever accept blame.

Air Force One touched down at Helsinki Airport at 20:55 on Sunday evening carrying US President Donald Trump ahead of a historic planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump tweeted. "Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people and all the Dems (.) know how to do is resist and obstruct!" "But, in a trade sense, they've really taken advantage of us".

"I think it's a good thing to meet", Trump said.

But the Washington-Moscow rivalry has a long history and there are there many points of friction that could yet spoil Trump's hoped-for attractive friendship.

Trump and his aides have been working through the weekend to soften expectations for tangible results from the Russian Federation meeting.

Trump told CBS News that he's going into the Helsinki summit with "low expectations".

Both presidents are scheduled to meet during the Russia-U.S. summit in Helsinki on Monday. America's ambassador to Russian Federation said that probably wouldn't happen but he didn't rule it out.

For Trump, the formal meeting with Putin is an opportunity to develop a closer working relationship with the Russian president.

Some NATO countries even worry Mr Trump - in a one on one meeting - might recognise Russia's annexation of Crimea.

A United States federal grand jury charged 12 Russian intelligence officers on Friday with hacking Democratic computer networks in 2016, in the most detailed USA accusation yet that Moscow meddled in the election to help Republican Trump.

Asked to name the U.S.'s "biggest foe globally" in an interview conducted Saturday and aired Sunday on CBS's "Face the Nation", Trump first mentioned the European Union, adding that "we have a lot of foes".

And in case people missed that plug, Trump took to Twitter on Saturday to promote his golf course again: "I have arrived in Scotland and will be at Trump Turnberry for two days of meetings, calls and hopefully, some golf".

They are accused of using keystroke reading software to spy on the chair of the Democratic National Committee (DNC) and hack into the party's computers. "We have lots to discuss. Let's get to it". Jon Huntsman, the US ambassador to Russian Federation, said Sunday on NBC's Meet the Press that the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the US Embassy in Moscow will "no doubt" work on submitting a formal request.

But for Trump, whose White House victory was actively supported by 12 Russian military intelligence agents, according to a recent USA indictment, and whose entourage is still being investigated for possible collusion with Moscow, the meeting is freighted with domestic political risk.
