Man arrested over paraglider protest at Trump resort

When asked by CBS if he would ask Putin to extradite the Russians to the United States, Trump said he hadn't thought of that idea but that he might.

Trump's first response to special counsel Robert Mueller's initial charges against Russian government officials for interfering in American politics came in tweets the president posted while at his golf resort in Scotland, two days before a high-stakes summit in Finland with Russian leader Vladimir Putin. Where they're going to be paying Russian Federation billions and billions of dollars a year for energy, and I say that's not good, that's not fair.

Speaking on the BBC, she said: "He told me I should sue the European Union - not go into negotiations".

"I think we have a lot of foes", the USA leader told CBS News in an interview broadcast Sunday that was taped the day before at his Turnberry golf course in Scotland. A provision in Russia's constitution prohibits extraditing its citizens to foreign countries.

In the interview, CBS News's Jeff Glor asked Trump what he considers his biggest foe globally, prompting Trump to lament the EU's trade policies.

Allies are nervously waiting to see if Trump sidles up to the canny Russian leader in the same way he has embraced other autocrats such as China's Xi Jinping, and even North Korea's Kim Jong Un.

The president says "nothing bad is going to come out of it (Helsinki), and maybe some good will come out".

At another square in Helsinki on Sunday, a small group of people, including members of the nationalist Finns Party, staged a pro-Trump rally.

Ferdinand believes that Pogba struggled at United because Mourinho has not figured out the right position to play him. France's Paul Pogba is one of the most scrutinized players in the world . "He was the talisman of this team".

Trump and Putin have held talks several times before. She added that Trump also said: "Don't walk away". But we had much better defenses.

Trump also says he intends to pressure Putin over the rapid growth and modernisation of Russia's nuclear arsenal.

Trump complained: "No matter how well I do at the Summit", he'll face "criticism that it wasn't good enough". In the past, Trump has pointed to denials by Kremlin officials, and says he wants a good relationship with the country.

The Trump-Putin summit is still on despite a Friday bombshell from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III, who indicted a dozen Russian military officers for their efforts to interfere in the 2016 USA election.

Before leaving the USA for his visit to Europe, he said his meeting with the Russian president "may be the easiest of all".

"I think we could probably get along very well", Trump added, referring to his scheduled summit with Putin. "But, in a trade sense, they've really taken advantage of us, and many of those countries are in North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and they weren't paying their bills", Trump said.

He told ABC's "This Week" that "it's very important that the president has a direct one-on-one conversation" with Putin, and European leaders have expressed support for it. Those have been sustained since former CIA Director Mike Pompeo was installed as top USA diplomat in April and despite the president's growing calls for friendship with Putin. And, in a stunning remark, he called the European Union a "foe" of the United States on trade matters. But that doesn't mean they're bad. "The collective blood pressure between the United States and Russian Federation is off-the-charts high so it's a good thing these presidents are getting together", he said. Bolton described the meeting as "unstructured" and said: "We're not looking for concrete deliverables here".

The president has repeatedly said the investigation into Russian election meddling is a "rigged witch hunt" that makes it hard for him to do substantive deals with Moscow.
