President Trump, “Expectations low for Helsinki Summit”


Sunday, US President Donald Trump says “nothing bad … maybe some good” will come out of his Summit Monday with Russia’s Vladimir Putin in Finland.

President Trump said in a TV interview that he’s going into the meeting with “low expectations. I’m not going with high expectations.”

The President also tells CBS News that he “hadn’t thought” about asking President Putin to extradite the 12 Russian military intelligence officers indicted this past week in Washington, DC on charges related to the hacking of Democratic targets in the 2016 US election, but says that “certainly I’ll be asking about it.”

The United States has no extradition treaty with Moscow and cannot compel Russia to hand over citizens, and a provision in Russia’s constitution prohibits extraditing its citizens to foreign countries.

President Trump blames the Democratic National Committee (DNC) for “allowing themselves to be hacked.”

The President taped the interview Saturday in Scotland, a day before he was set to leave for Helsinki for the summit.

President Trump says he believes such get-togethers are beneficial. He cites his historic meeting with NKorean leader Kim Jong Un in June as “a good thing” and says “having meetings with Russia, China, NKorea, I believe in it.”

The President said “nothing bad is going to come out of it (Helsinki), and maybe some good will come out.”
