“U.S. President Donald Trump said dealing with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin might be easier than talks with NATO or visiting Britain. He was speaking before departing for a NATO summit, an official visit to Britain, and his first bilateral summit with Putin“. https://www.rferl.org/a/united-states-trump-remarks-putin-russia/29355263.html (There is also video on the White House youtube channel)

“Remarks by President Trump Before Marine One Departure

“So I have NATO, I have the UK, which is in somewhat turmoil, and I have Putin. Frankly, Putin may be the easiest of them all. Who would think? Who would think?
Q On NATO, Donald Tusk, about half an hour ago, said that you should appreciate America’s allies because you don’t have very many. What do you say to —
THE PRESIDENT: Well, we do have a lot of allies, but we cannot be taken advantage of. We’re being taken advantage of by the European Union. We lost $151 billion last year on trade. And on top of that, we spend at least 70 percent for NATO. And, frankly, it helps them a lot more than it helps us. So we’ll see what happens. We have a long, beautiful week.
Q Vladimir Putin (inaudible) friend or foe?
THE PRESIDENT: I really can’t say right now. As far as I’m concerned, a competitor. A competitor. I think that getting along with Russia, getting along with China, getting along with others is a good thing, not a bad thing. I’ve said that many times for many years. So we’ll see. We’re meeting with Vladimir Putin on Monday. We’ll see how that goes.
THE PRESIDENT: They didn’t give it. I have it for him. They didn’t give it. But it will be given at a certain period. I actually do — I actually do have a little gift for him, but you’ll find out what that gift is when I give it.
THE PRESIDENT: No, I haven’t. I really haven’t. We haven’t discussed it.

Britain or Germany need to keep their wayward son. Russia can have him if they want. Trump needs to be banished back to his homeland – maybe the UK and Germany can share him!
