Trump Says Relations Have Never Been Worse Between Us and Russia
July 16, 2018
Our relationship with Russia has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!— Donald J. Trump (@realDonaldTrump) July 16, 2018
President Trump tweeted that relations between Russia and the US have never been worse, right before the summit meeting with President Putin, and even called the current situation a “witch hunt”.
The summit will take place today, July 16, 2018, in Helsinki, Finland. The main goal of the summit is the normalization of Russian-American relations, which came under threat after the events of 2014 in Ukraine and Crimea and allegations of Russian “meddling” in the American Presidential elections two years ago. The Syrian crisis is also on the agenda for the meeting.
This isn't the first time that Helsinki has played host for vital international talks. Back in 1975, the Helsinki Accords lowered the tensions between the Soviet bloc and Western countries.
