US President Donald Trump said in a new interview that he hadn't thought of pressing Russian President Vladimir Putin on extraditing the dozen Russian officials charged with hacking Democratic Party emails, while continuing to blame Democrats for the stolen emails that upended the 2016 presidential campaign. "Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news", Tusk tweeted late Sunday during an EU-China summit in Beijing, without naming Trump directly.
Interviewed on ABC'S "This Week", Bolton said the summit will start with a "direct one-on-one conversation" between Trump and Putin and what happens from there "will be determined by the two parties".
"There's no evidence so far of the president's involvement at all in this", Paul said of Russia's interference in the 2016 US presidential election.
Russian Federation has no extradition treaty with the United States, however.
"No, no - we're going into negotiations with them", May said as she replied Trump's themselves. "They were doing whatever it was during the Obama administration", he told CBS's Jeff Glor on "Face the Nation".
Several lawmakers have spoken out since the indictments for Trump to cancel the meeting, to agree to bring other USA officials in the meeting, and to prioritize discussing campaign meddling. "So, because we waste time saying Putin needs to admit this and apologize, he's not going to admit that he did it".
Speaking to ABC's This Week, national security adviser John Bolton said: "The United States does not have an extradition process with Russian Federation so it's pretty hard to imagine how that would happen". Putin has said Russians indicted by special counsel Robert Mueller - 13 other individuals and three entities were named in February - will "never" be extradited.
"I think we could probably get along very well".
The summit is expected to address a range of issues, including Syria, nuclear weapons and election meddling. Trump regularly criticizes American news media outlets and has called out some journalists by name.
German Foreign Minister Heiko Maas on Sunday warned Trump against making any unilateral deals with Russian Federation that come with a cost for the US' Western allies. "What we need to do is make sure our electoral process is protected".
Sen. Chris Murphy, D-Conn., rejected Bolton's assertion that the indictments put Trump in a stronger position going in to the meeting.
"I love those countries", he claimed.
The first one he named was the European Union, traditionally a close ally to the U.S.
Mr Huntsman was interviewed on NBC's "Meet the Press" and Mr Paul appeared on CNN's "State of the Union".
