And that comes amid still renewed discussions of Russia's alleged collusion in the 2016 Presidential Elections. According to Trump official HR McMaster apparently was quoted Thursday as confirming that Trump would be meeting Vladamir Putin "(for the first time)" at the G-20 summit next month in Germany.
Officials say that there is no particularly set agenda for the meeting, although, Trump has requested a "list of deliverables" that can be given to Putin during the meeting. Those deliverables, perhaps, are "among the forgiving type, something, that Trump hopes will trigger Russia to behave better".
In other news, Trump and Russia for some time have been at odds. The two country's have reportedly been at odds over health; healthcare, and the current politically climate.
