Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko on Thursday welcomed U.S. President Donald Trump’s decision to cancel a previously scheduled meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, after Russia seized three Ukrainian ships at the weekend. “This is how great leaders act!” Poroshenko tweeted.
President Donald Trump abruptly canceled a planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin as he headed to the Group of 20 Nations summit Thursday, citing Russia's seizure of Ukrainian vessels as a source of tension in a relationship he has fostered in the face of criticism.
Trump tweeted his decision from Air Force One shortly after his former lawyer, Michael Cohen, revealed he had lied to Congress to cover up that he was negotiating a real estate deal in Moscow on Trump's behalf during the Republican presidential primary in 2016.Will they really not meet at the summit?
The news ensured any meeting with Putin would spotlight the special counsel's investigation into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Moscow during the campaign. Trump has denied any wrongdoing.
Or is this just spin from the media to connect the Cohen issue with the alleged Moscow collusion? With some dramatic flair?
- Another news report- Doesn't mention any connection to Mr Cohen.
