Trump Turns Heat on Putin Ahead of First Meeting

From Lifezette

President Donald Trump will finally meet Russian President Vladimir Putin face to face Friday at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany.

And Trump, long accused by domestic political adversaries of lending a sympathetic ear to Putin, is likely to offer the Russian president an earful.

The meeting’s tone was set on Thursday, when Trump gave a stirring defense of Western values in Warsaw, Poland. The remarks were definitely aimed at showing Russia that Trump was a pro-Western leader who values freedom and democracy — in contrast to the Russian tradition of autocracy.
