President TrumpDonald John TrumpCanadian prime minister commemorates victims of Maryland newspaper shooting Trump suggested to Macron that France should leave the European Union: report Maryland newspaper writer in emotional interview: "We need more than prayers" MORE said Friday that he plans to bring up Russia's efforts to meddle in USA elections when he meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin next month. We'll be talking about elections.

"The election meddling issue was definitely something we talked about", Bolton told the CBS "Face the Nation" programme.

The meeting, to be held on July 16 in Helsinki, is likely to worry some U.S. allies, particularly those who want to isolate Russian Federation on the worldwide stage, as well as drawing a fiery reaction from some of Trump's critics at home.

Bolton, who before joining the White House said on television that Putin lied to Trump, said he hasn't changed his mind about Russia's involvement.

Trump denies wrongdoing and calls an investigation into possible collusion between his presidential campaign and Russian Federation a "witch hunt".

U.S. allies who want to isolate Putin, such as Britain, or who are concerned about Trump's attitude towards Russian Federation are likely to be irritated by such a summit.

"We'll be talking about peace. We might even be talking about some of the things President Obama lost, like Crimea, that could come up".

Asked by reporters on Air Force One late on June 29 whether reports about him dropping Washington's longstanding opposition to the annexation were true, Trump said: "We're going to have to see".

11 members of family found hanging blindfolded in north Delhi home
One of the bodies was found lying on the floor and the others hanging from a railing attached to the ceiling, media reports said. Indian TV channels broadcast interviews with neighbours who said the family did not have any discord among themselves.

President Trump suggested that Russia's efforts to "sow discord or chaos" in the US have been successful during a Fox News interview which aired Sunday.

In early 2014, with areas of Ukraine falling into chaos in the wake of a Kiev street revolt that ousted a pro-Russian president, Russian troops - in unmarked uniforms - seized Crimea.

As previously reported "FACTS", Pompeo told how Russian Federation will be able to return in the G8 not to give Crimea to Ukraine.

A Cabinet minister said they worry Trump would want to burnish his deal-maker credentials by outlining a plan to reduce military presence around Europe's Eastern boundaries.

Trump, who is spending the weekend at his golf resort in Bedminster, N.J., also predicted swift approval for the Supreme Court nominee he says he will unveil a week from Monday to replace Justice Anthony M. Kennedy, who announced his retirement last week.

"Germany has to spend more money", he said.

"That's not the position of the United States".
