"It's very important to understand that we're living in one world, on one globe where we are highly interdependent, so it's very hard for me to understand the kind of philosophy America first and only the America first and nothing else", Torstila said.
"I think we could probably get along very well", Trump added, referring to his scheduled summit with Putin.
"I don't think you'll have any 'Gee, I did it, I did it".
Mr. Huntsman, who is in Helsinki for the Trump-Putin powwow, said Russia's takeover of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 is on the agenda. China is a foe economically. "They had bad defences and they were able to be hacked". It doesn't mean anything. His national security adviser said they weren't looking for any "concrete deliverables".
Mr Trump said he respects Europe's leaders but says they have taken advantage of the United States on trade and defence spending.
"There's no evidence so far of the president's involvement at all in this", Paul said of Russia's interference in the 2016 US presidential election. "It means that they are competitive".
In a shocking statement, Trump termed the European Union, one of America's biggest allies, a "foe".
Trump had said at a Friday joint press conference with May that he had provided a suggestion to her about handing Brexit negotiations, and that she had not taken it. "Germany made a pipeline deal with Russian Federation". "You're supposed to be fighting for someone and that someone gives billions of dollars to the one you are guarding against. I think it's ridiculous, so I let that be known also this time".
Trump suggested Germany was "waving a white flag" to Russian Federation.
She told the BBC: "He told me I should sue the European Union - not go into negotiations". It is highly unlikely the Russians will ever be sent to the US.
When asked by CBS if he would ask Putin to extradite the Russians to the United States, Trump said he might.
But for the United States, and frankly the U.K. and other places, to get along with Russian Federation and China and all of these other places...that's a good thing, that's not a bad thing. "Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out". They're going to interfere in our elections. Trump regularly criticizes American news media outlets and has called out some journalists by name. Speaking to CBS, he repeated a claim made in tweets from Scotland on Saturday - that his predecessor did not do enough in response to Russian interference.
