"I actually told Theresa May how to do [Brexit], but she didn't listen to me", Trump said in the Sun interview, and then mused that May's Conservative Party rival, Boris Johnson, "would be a great prime minister".

Vladimir Putin has everything to gain from his first summit on Monday with US President Donald Trump.

"Putin is not America's friend, nor merely a competitor".

"We want to find out about Syria". We'll be talking about other parts of the Middle East. "I think that's a real possibility", he said.

More recently ties have been strained by a probe into alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 United States presidential election and suspected collusion with the Trump campaign, as well as by the poisoning of a former Russian spy in Britain. I will be asking that question again.

"I think we'll get along well".

Trump's assertion that Russia is a competitor and not an adversary is contrary to the judgments of USA intelligence agencies and his chief diplomat, Mike Pompeo, who at his April confirmation hearing to be Secretary of State, said the United States needs "to push back in each place we confront them", referring to the Russians.

Russian President Vladimir Putin's foreign affairs adviser reaffirmed Moscow's insistence that it did not try to influence the election as the U.S. Justice Department was preparing to announce charges against the 12 Russians.

Nikonov said Trump was now strong enough to pursue his own agenda.

The Kremlin has always been trying to arrange a summit, betting that Putin and Trump will get on well and stop a sharp downwards spiral in bilateral ties.

McCain wasn't the only Republican senator to criticize Putin following the indictments.

While nobody on either side expects big breakthroughs, including on USA sanctions, the summit is seen by Moscow as United States recognition of Russia's status as a great power and an overdue U.S. realisation that its interests must be taken into account. The Russians have interfered with our elections, they committed a crime, they are a foe.

Despite Russia's semi-pariah status among some Americans and U.S. allies, the Kremlin has always been trying to arrange a summit, betting that Putin and Trump will get on well and stop a sharp downwards spiral in bilateral ties.

When Trump was asked about his threat to pull the USA out of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, he said that idea was no longer necessary and mentioned the member nations' financial commitments.

Princess Diana's favourite flower was the white rose - leading many to think Kate was making a subtle nod to her. Prince Louis was born on April 23 and is a younger brother to Prince George , 4, and Princess Charlotte , 3.

The Finlandia Hall congress centre, where the two leaders and up to 2,000 of their officials and diplomats will meet, has been freshly painted.

During Friday's news conference with May, Trump dismissed critics of the meeting, characterizing it as deliberations that led to positive results, including every member vowing to allocate more money for defense.

He said that in Helsinki, Trump should "reverse his disturbing tendency to show America's adversaries the deference and esteem that should be reserved for our closest allies".

He said that it was German Chancellor Angela Merkel, not him, who was beholden to Putin because of a pipeline system Russian Federation is expanding between their countries.

The Helsinki talks culminate a week of Trump's bull-in-a-China-shop diplomacy in Europe.

May's office said it would not comment on The Sun article during a greeting with Trump and May at the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst to review a military exercise.

"It reflects the way Trump and certainly some of the people in his orbit view things", Jeff Mankoff, deputy director of the Washington-based Centre for Strategic and International Studies, said in a phone interview.
