Trump says he'll bring up election meddling with Putin

Ahead of the big Trump-Putin summit, Fox News' Chris Wallace spoke with National Security Advisor John Bolton about his recent meeting with Vladimir Putin and the public rhetoric from President Trump on Russian Federation. "We've now got ISIS in a good spot, but a lot of people over here are very anxious about leaving Syria and giving it to the Iranians and the Russians, which would throw the whole region into chaos".

Asked by reporters whether he was considering - as has been reported - dropping Washington's opposition to the 2014 land grab, Trump said: "We're going to have to see".

On June 15, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said, commenting on media reports alleging that US President Donald Trump said Crimea was Russian at the G7 summit, that the Crimean issue was closed for Russia.

USA intelligence agencies have alleged that Russian hackers had tried to help Trump win the White House, something Russia has flatly denied. Graham said he is glad the two are meeting but expressed fears that Trump won't truly confront Russian President Vladimir Putin on Syria and ISIS during their upcoming July 16 summit meeting in Helsinki, Finland.

On Thursday, the CNN quoted unnamed sources as saying that Trump believes he can strike a deal with Putin on a so-called exclusion zone in southwest Syria that will allow the United States to "get out ASAP". He has repeatedly praised his peer while straining ties with numerous United States' closest allies.

"I don't read the way he conducted these meetings the same way", Bolton said. Last week, he tweeted that "Russia continues to say they had nothing to do with meddling in our election", while at the same time attacking the Federal Bureau of Investigation. Trump denies any collusion and has called the probe a "witch hunt". Trump tweeted last week.

The president was obviously not intentionally referring to the discord caused in the U.S.by his election and the subsequent actions of him and his administration, but rather the discord which has resulted from the Russian Federation investigation. Asked if the USA would recognize Russia's claim on Crimea, he said: "We're going to have to see". "Putin was pretty clear with me about it and my response was we're going to have to agree to disagree on Ukraine". The US president said he may also raise the issue of Crimea's reunification with Russian Federation in 2014.

"No, that's not the position of the United States" Bolton said.

He gave a similar answer when he was asked if he would lift the sanctions on Russian Federation.
