Trump and Putin to Hold Summit In 'Next Few Weeks'

The message came a few minutes before the White House finalized plans for Trump to meet Russian president Vladimir Putin at a summit in Finland next month.

The meeting signals a growing rapprochement between the United States and Russian Federation.

Trump is scheduled to travel to Europe on July 11 for a summit of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation member countries in Belgium, and will likely travel to Finland from either there or the United Kingdom, where he is also scheduled to visit - as reports before the official confirmation of the Trump-Putin summit occurred on Thursday.

Berman continued to grill Gaetz on the tweet, and the congressman offered the limp defense that Trump's claim - that "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with Meddling in our Election" - is factually correct, but that the claim is a "lie". "You never know about meetings what happens, right?" the president said.

Following the G20 summit, Trump claimed he directly prodded Putin about the election meddling and said Putin had twice denied any interference by Russian Federation.

National security adviser John Bolton met with Putin in Moscow this week to discuss the upcoming summit, where topics will likely include Syria and Ukraine as well as the re-entry of Russian Federation into the G-7.

Bolton told reporters that he "expects" Trump to bring up the election meddling, but dismissed any insinuation that the two leaders meeting for the third time since Trump took office had any hidden meaning.

The two leaders have met twice before on the sidelines of global gatherings and spoken at least eight times by phone. In 1997, President Bill Clinton met his Russian counterpart Boris Yeltsin in Helsinki. On Wednesday Trump said they would discuss Syria and Ukraine among other issues.

It made no secret on Wednesday of its delight that such a meeting had finally been agreed with Kremlin aide Yuri Ushakov saying the two men were likely to talk for several hours.

The meeting comes amid FBI Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe into alleged Russian interference in the 2016 election. The two discussed the details of the first full summit between the presidents.
