The Latest: Schumer says Putin will take advantage of Trump

The Senate’s top Democrat says he “Absolutely” doesn’t feel comfortable with President Donald Trump’s planned one-on-one meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin because he’s afraid of “What he would give away” without aides present to stop him.

Minority Leader Chuck Schumer tells reporters that when Trump met with the leaders of China and North Korea, “They took him to the cleaners.”

The New York Democrat says it’s even worse for Trump to meet with “a very, very clever, out for himself man like President Putin alone.”

Responding to criticism from Donald Tusk, the President of the European Council, who complained that Trump is “Criticizing Europe almost daily,” Trump says the United States is “Being taken advantage of” by the European Union.

Trump says he is referring to the trade imbalance with Europe and the American contribution to NATO. President Donald Trump says he “Can’t say right now” if Russian President Vladimir Putin is a friend or foe.

Trump spoke to reporters Tuesday before departing the White House for a trip that will take him to a NATO summit meeting, bilateral meetings in the United Kingdom and a sit-down with Putin in Helsinki next week.

Trump is headed to Brussels, Britain and Scotland, then to Finland, where he’s expected to sit down with Russia President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.
