Trump said he had advised May to take a different strategy on Brexit, telling the paper: "I would have done it much differently". "I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it".

Trump, who has publicly praised Russian president Vladimir Putin, brashly criticized his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies for not spending enough on defense during a summit early Wednesday.

Speaking of topics on agenda, the Russian official said that it remains unknown what exact issues will be touched upon at the top-level meeting, adding that Moscow is ready to "consider literally all key issues on the bilateral and worldwide agenda".

Scuffles broke out at one point as attendees - who chanted slogans including "We love you Donald" - passed a nearby anti-fascism protest. "American diplomats have already begun to say that the United Nations should be shut down because it's not needed.Trump also tries to destroy the WTO and isn't sure about necessity of the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation".

Some Democrats echoed McCain's call for Trump to challenge Putin over election meddling, particularly now that he is armed with information from the latest Mueller indictment.

"If we continue to be a little baby in the background as the President thinks we should be, then we're going to continue to get pushed around and there's going to be a very serious outcome in Europe, in the United States, in every free election around this world", said the member of the House Armed Services committee.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi said that Trump's refusal to condemn Putin "makes it clear that meeting with Putin would be both pointless and unsafe", while Senate Intelligence Committee Vice Chairman Mark Warner said the Russian leader "will undoubtedly take full advantage of an ill-prepared President".

In a series of tweets, McCain said the indictment was the "result of the hard work of America's law enforcement and intelligence officials who dedicate their lives to bringing to justice those who wish to do us harm". "But I will absolutely, firmly ask the question", he added. They also allegedly hacked into the computer network of the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee in an operation starting around March 2016. Instead "maybe he should ask Putin to turn over the 12 people indicted to the United States for trial", Podesta said.




Warner said he's concerned the US "President can be taken advantage of" by Putin, and that if a meeting cannot have additional attendees it should be scrapped.

Senator John McCain, also an Arizona Republican, said the indictments add to evidence confirmation an "extensive plot" by Putin's government to spark dissent among US voters, attack the 2016 election, and undermine faith in democracy.

U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, speaking to reporters before his departure to Helsinki on Sunday, pushed back at Democrats who called for the summit to be cancelled.

"I didn't go in with high expectations", Trump told reporters at the Friday press conference with May.

Former Secretary of State John Kerry scolded President Donald Trump for what he called "disgraceful" and "destructive" statements against USA allies in NATO, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization Wednesday.

"But it makes it very hard to do something with Russian Federation". "I love the United States but I love getting along with Russian Federation and China and other countries".

"We're not anti-American. We're anti-Trump", said Alistair Wilson, 67, a retired video producer.
