More than half of Russians (56%) anticipate no significant results from the upcoming meeting between Russian President Vladimir Putin and his USA counterpart Donald Trump in Helsinki, the All-Russia Public Opinion Research Center said in a statement on Monday.
"I do think Russian Federation is trying to flip Turkey; they're trying to flip many of our allies", Hutchison said. Trump will meet with Putin next week, and met with Kim at the incredibly weird summit in Singapore in June.

'I'm confident the UK-US alliance will play a leading role in advancing our shared values of democracy and freedom, ' he said.

Allies are braced for a barrage of invective from Trump for not spending enough on defense, and are apprehensive that his often skeptical tone on the alliance that has underpinned European security for 70 years might turn into outright hostility.
This disdain for US allies is essentially the beating heart of much of Trump's foreign policy, it seems. Which means his words and deeds during his European swing will drive policy - especially since aides have acknowledged Trump has few goals for the two summits.
China is expected to match the move with a 25 percent levy on USA goods to the same value on the same day. And most U.S. cars sold in China are made at plants located in China, so they're immune to tariffs.
