Russia's President Vladimir Putin talks to US President Donald Trump during their bilateral meeting at the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany, July 7, 2017.

The Washington Post recently reported that the Pentagon was evaluating the cost of transferring or withdrawing the troops - the biggest contingent outside the United States.

"The President has determined that now is the time for direct communication between himself and President Putin and that it is in the interest of the United States. and that's the way he's proceeding", the official said.

Mr. Trump's political opponents in the USA will be looking for any sign that the president goes easy on Mr. Putin, which they would say bolster allegations of Trump campaign collusion with Moscow to hack the 2016 presidential election.

Switzerland's lack of intent exposed by Sweden
Switzerland controlled possession early as Sweden mostly defended with 10 men behind the ball when in their own half. A low-quality match featured some of the worst finishing seen so far at the World Cup , and two efforts stood out.

A senior administration official with knowledge of the situation but not authorized to speak publicly did not initially answer the question about possible troop withdrawals on a conference call with reporters.

Russian Federation has denied these allegations.

Administration officials have also said that subjects discussed with Putin would include Syria, where the administration is looking for a political settlement that would allow the withdrawal of US troops there. So it's understandable for the U.S. to air frustration and ask European nations to do more - especially as some states are yet to meet their standard 2 per cent obligation.

Also in the teleconference, Kay Bailey Hutchison, the USA envoy to the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO), said Russian Federation would be a key topic at the NATO summit in Belgium next week.

Northeast heat wave promises a scorching July Fourth
The National Weather Service reported later Tuesday morning flooding had occurred in the area along Highway 14. A cold front is approaching from the northwest, firing up a few thunderstorms as it inches closer.

The Trump administration has been supportive of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and European countries at a tactical level - actions generally credited to Defense Secretary Jim Mattis.

But Hutchinson, and the USA ambassador to Russia Jon Huntsman, gave upbeat assessments of the upcoming meetings.

Poland, Romania and the Baltic nations of Estonia, Latvia and Lithuania have been asking the US for additional troops for several years.

Asked about the letter, Russian Foreign Ministry Spokeswoman Maria Zakharova said that it was "not an isolated action" and that the wider trend of Washington lobbying for more defense spending from European allies was problematic for Moscow. "I'm not going to get ahead of any announcement or any action he could potentially take, but as you guys know, he's shown some frustration there on the financial burden that the United States unfairly is forced to bear, and he wants changes", White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told reporters this week.

President Trump to name second Supreme Court nominee in 2 years
Wade , the 1973 case that affirmed a woman's right to abortion, and would weaken President Barack Obama's 2010 health care law. Similarly, Justice Neil Gorsuch , who Trump nominated to the Court a year ago , is widely seen as a pro-life conservative.

As part of this plan, Trump could mothball USA bases in Europe and shift most resources spent there and in the Atlantic to the Indo-Pacific region, where China and Iran pose real threats to America-and against which NATO is irrelevant.
