National Security Adviser John Bolton says Trump will press Putin on election meddling.
The national security adviser had said a year ago, before joining the Trump White House, that Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 election was "act of war" and warned: "We negotiate with Russian Federation at our peril". "We're going to be talking to them about Syria".
A senior US official told CBS News that the set agenda with Putin includes an extended one-on-one meeting with Mr. Trump, which has heightened concern among some USA officials regarding any concessions that may be made when the two are in the room together. "Could you please talk to us about the dead reporters in Annapolis?"
Bolton then defended Trump's "we'll see" comment, noting that the President often uses that term to show "that he's willing to talk to foreign leaders about a range of issues and hear their perspective".

Asked by journalists from the pool of the White house, whether the United States recognize the Russian Crimea, trump replied, "Look".
As recently as Thursday, Trump tweeted that Moscow says it did not interfere. The president has repeatedly minimized the conclusion of the USA intelligence community that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election to help him win.

Bolton also said he discussed Russia's annexation of Crimea with Putin and his aides during a 90-minute meeting.
Peskov said Moscow is ready to follow the path of normalising Russia-U.S. relations to the extent Washington is ready to do.
"I think the president will have to pursue that further and I think that's one reason why he and President Putin need to have this conversation".
"Right, but saying "we'll see" suggests it might be", Brennan added. "Putin was pretty clear with me about it and my response was we're going to have to agree to disagree on Ukraine". "Spain, France, it's unfair what they've done to the United States".
