Trump may cancel G-20 meeting with Putin
President Donald Trump on Tuesday floated the idea of canceling a scheduled meeting with President Vladimir Putin after Russia attacked and seized three Ukranian naval vessels.
The president, during an interview with The Washington Post, said he was still waiting to receive a “full report” from his national security team on the Sunday episode off the coast of Crimea, which Russia annexed from Ukraine in 2014.
Trump said his decision to meet with Putin at the G-20 summit this week in Argentina would be “very determinative” on the report he receives from his team.
“Maybe I won’t have the meeting. Maybe I won’t even have the meeting,” Trump told The Post on Tuesday. “I don’t like that aggression. I don’t want that aggression at all.”
Ukraine has imposed martial law following the attack. The country’s president, Petro Poroshenko, in an interview with NBC News on Tuesday, called on Trump to tell Putin to “please, get out from Ukraine.”
