President Trump said Friday he will raise the issue of Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election when he meets with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki next month. "I'll talk to him about everything," the president told reporters aboard Air Force One en route to his golf club in New Jersey.
"We're going to talk about Ukraine; we're going to be talking about Syria. We'll be talking about elections ... we don't want anybody tampering with elections," Trump continued. "Perhaps the world can de-escalate. We might be talking about some things President Obama lost."
The Trump-Putin summit is scheduled for July 16. Finland has a long history of being neutral ground for Russia and the United States.
