REPORT Trump Set To Meet With Putin
The Kremlin has announced that a meeting between President Trump and Russian President Putin has been set. The White House has yet to announce the meeting.

According to The Hill:

The White House and Kremlin have agreed to stage a summit meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, the Russian government announced on Wednesday.

Russian foreign affairs adviser Yuri Ushakov said U.S. national security adviser John Bolton and Putin decided on a time and place to hold the high-stakes meeting, according to multiple media outlets. The two men met on Wednesday in Moscow.

The details will likely be announced on Thursday. Trump and Putin are expected to meet next month, when the U.S. president will be in Europe for a summit with North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies and a visit to the United Kingdom.

Officials are planning to hold the Trump-Putin summit in a third country. Media outlets have named Helsinki, Finland, or Vienna, Austria, as potential locations.

This would add another high-level meeting to an already packed Europe trip for President Trump. It will be interesting to see how this plays out alongside the NATO meeting Trump will attend.
