Trump: There is chance to have good relationship with Putin

The United States and its allies can have a good relationship with Russia and its President Vladimir Putin, US President Donald Trump said at a press conference in the United Kingdom on Friday.

Speaking alongside Prime Minister Theresa May, Trump stated that "fake news" and the "rigged witch hunt" in the US media is making it harder to cooperate with Putin. Asked how the US can have a good relationship with Russia if it occupies Crimea, Trump said Putin annexed the peninsula during the Obama administration and it is "just like other bad hands" he took over from his predecessor. He added "I know how to fix" the problem.

May commented that it is of utter importance that Trump goes into the Monday meeting in Helsinki with Putin from a "position of strength" and "unity in NATO."
