"We're going to be talking to Russian Federation about a lot of things".

A January 2017 assessment by the Office of the Director of National Intelligence (ODNI) stated that Russian leadership preferred Trump over then Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton and that Putin personally ordered an "influence campaign" to harm Clinton's electoral chances and "undermine public faith in the United States democratic process".

"We're going to be talking about Ukraine, we're going to be talking about Syria, we're going to be talking about elections".

The summit with Putin comes amid FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 USA election. When they say they didn't meddle, they're lying.

The European Union and United States originally imposed the sanctions to penalize Russian Federation for its illegal annexation of Crimea in 2014 and its backing of separatists fighting against the Ukrainian government forces in eastern Ukraine.

The president has called Mueller's probe a "witch hunt".

After tweeting last Thursday that "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election!", Trump switched gears on Friday and said he would discuss the matter.

At a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit past year, Trump scolded leaders for the cost of the gleaming new Brussels headquarters and for not paying enough to support NATO's defense. "So, the question is, is the President making concessions to Putin before the two men even sit down?" It's up to President Trump to make sure that we don't give Russian Federation and Iran Syria. And I think that in the president's mind this is very important because it gives him an opportunity to size up Vladimir Putin to see where there are areas where we might make progress together and where there are areas where we may not'. An Arab diplomat told CBS News that Russian Federation specifically wants the U.S.to give up its base of operations in al Tanf, Syria. "Does it follow that the United Kingdom may Annex the United States"?

Trump also suggested that scrapping sanctions on Russian Federation depended on its actions, including in Syria.
