Two-minute clip http://bit.ly/2KUlLSh The show premieres at 10 p.m. tonight.
PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP to CBS’ JEFF GLOR in SCOTLAND: GLOR: “What’s your goal from the Putin meeting?” TRUMP: “I’ll let you know after the meeting. I have absolutely — it was mutually agreed. Let’s have a meeting. I think it’s a good thing to meet. I do believe in meetings. I believe that having a meeting with Chairman Kim was a good thing. I think having meetings with the president of China was a very good thing. I believe it’s really good.
“So having meetings with Russia, China, North Korea — I believe in it. Nothing bad’s gonna come out of it. And maybe some good will come out of it. But I go in with low expectations. I’m not going in with high expectations. I can’t tell you what’s going to happen. But I can tell you what I’ll be asking for and we’ll see if something comes of it.”
GLOR: “The Russians who were indicted. Would you ask Putin to send them here?” TRUMP: “Well I might. I hadn’t thought of that. But again — this was during the Obama administration. They were doing whatever it was during the Obama administration. And I heard that they were trying — or people were trying to hack into the RNC too, the Republican National Committee, but we had much better defenses.
“I’d been told that by a number of people. We had much better defenses, so they couldn’t. I think the DNC should be ashamed of themselves for allowing themselves to be hacked. They had bad defenses and they were able to be hacked. But I heard they were trying to hack the Republicans too, but — and this may be wrong — but they had much stronger defenses.”
— TRUMP SAYS THE E.U. IS AMERICA’S FOE. GLOR: “Who is your biggest competitor? Your biggest foe globally right now?”
TRUMP: “Well I think we have a lot of foes. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. Now you wouldn’t think of the European Union but they’re a foe. Russia is foe in certain respects. China is a foe economically, certainly they are a foe. But that doesn’t mean they are bad. It doesn’t mean anything. It means that they are competitive. They want to do well and we want to do well.”
GLOR is also interviewing Trump at the White House Wednesday when he returns from the summit.
— NBC’S CHUCK TODD spoke with U.S. AMBASSADOR TO RUSSIA JON HUNTSMAN on NBC’S “MEET THE PRESS”: TODD: “Let me start with a simple question. Is this summit still on? And if so, why?” HUNTSMAN: “Well, listen, it isn’t a summit. I’ve heard it called a summit. This is a meeting. In fact, it’s the first meeting between the two presidents. They’ve had some pull-asides, one at the G20 in Hamburg and the other at the APEC Ministerial in Da Nang, Viet Nam, but this is really the first time for both presidents to actually sit across the table and have a conversation.
“And I hope it’s a detailed conversation about where we might be able to find some overlapping and shared interests. This has not happened before, so there’s a lot in our agenda that’s been built over now many years of a relationship that is terrible fraught. So, yes, it will happen, and it should happen.”
TODD: “Two things, will the president ask Putin to extradite the 12 Russian military officers? And have you formally requested that the Russian government do this? We don’t have an extradition treaty, so we have to make a formal request. Have you already begun that paperwork?”
HUNTSMAN: “Well, the F.B.I. office and the embassy no doubt will work on that. I can’t disclose any details in that regard. Requests can be made. That doesn’t necessarily mean that the Russians are going to follow through with it. But we’ll see if those steps will be taken. I can’t make any announcement right here with you.”
TODD: “Is the president going to make the ask or not?” HUNTSMAN: “I don’t know if he’ll make the ask, but it may be part of the agenda. It may be part of their bilateral meeting together. We’ll have to see. It just came onto the agenda last Friday, so it’s something that’s brand new.”
HUNTSMAN to FOX NEWS’ CHRIS WALLACE on FOX NEWS SUNDAY: WALLACE: “Do you have any doubt that the GRU, Russian military intelligence, conducted these operations?”
HUNTSMAN: “You are asking me personally? Having access to information that may be other people don’t have access to. Those who have followed this issue closely, there’s very little doubt in my mind about what we are seeing.
“The investigation was rolled up almost 30 Russians in total. The process and investigation are playing out and that’s part of holding Russia accountable and responsible for election meddling and malign activity. It’s part of getting through our relationship. This is part of it.
“But let me tell you something else. We’ve got to at some point quit looking in the rearview mirror. We have to be informed by what we’ve been through and use that to educate us as we go forward.”
— JONATHAN KARL talked with JOHN BOLTON on ABC’S “THIS WEEK” about whether Trump should ask Putin to extradite the 12 Russians indicted on Friday. BOLTON: “I think it’s pretty silly for the president to demand something that he can’t get legally. … For the president to demand something that isn’t going to happen, puts the president in a weak position and I think the president has made it very clear he intends to approach this discussion from a position of strength.” NYT’s Mark Landler and Julie Hirschfeld Davis detail larger trend of the disconnect between Trump and his top aides https://nyti.ms/2miVKx1
— SEN. RAND PAUL (R-KY.) on with JAKE TAPPER for CNN’S “STATE OF THE UNION” via Quint Forgey: “Sen. Rand Paul on Sunday sought to justify Russia’s interference in America’s 2016 presidential race, claiming that all countries meddle in foreign elections. ‘I think really we mistake our response if we think it’s about accountability from the Russians. They’re another country, they’re going to spy on us,’ Paul said. … ‘We’re going to do the same.’
“‘We all do it. What we need to do is make sure our electoral process is protected,’ Paul said. ‘They’re not going to admit it in the same way we’re not going to admit we were involved in the Ukrainian elections or the Russian elections.’” https://politi.co/2uxHGnl
CNN POLITICS on their Twitter feed (@CNNpolitics): “CNN’s Jake Tapper explains that State of the Union invited and confirmed national security adviser John Bolton to come on the show, but the White House canceled Bolton’s appearance #CNNSOTU” https://snpy.tv/2umoKJ0
TRUMP spoke with PIERS MORGAN aboard Air Force One before flying from London to Glasgow. MORGAN: “The skeptic in me would say: ‘What is the incentive for America to do a great deal with the United Kingdom?”
TRUMP: “‘We would make a great deal with the United Kingdom because they have product that we like. I mean they have a lot of great product. They make phenomenal things, you know, and you have different names — you can say ‘England’, you can say ‘UK’, you can say ‘United Kingdom’ so many different — you know you have, you have so many different names – Great Britain. I always say: ‘Which one do you prefer? Great Britain? You understand what I’m saying?”
MORGAN: “You know Great Britain and the United Kingdom aren’t exactly the same thing?”
TRUMP: “Right, yeah. You know I know, but a lot of people don’t know that. But you have lots of different names. The fact is you make great product, you make great things. Even your farm product is so fantastic.” https://dailym.ai/2KWZ28a
— @costareports: “Ahead of Putin meeting and following DOJ indictment, Pres. Trump said ‘I can’t tell you that,’ when asked by @piersmorgan if Putin is a dictator. ‘I assume he probably is. But I could name others also. Look, if we can get along with Russia that’s a good thing,’ Trump said.”
Good Sunday morning. The World Cup final between France and Croatia is at 11 a.m. on Fox. THE PRESIDENT was playing golf this morning before leaving for Helsinki, according to pooler Katie Rogers of the New York Times.
BBC — “Theresa May: Trump told me to sue the EU”: “The U.S. president said on Friday at a joint press conference he had given her a suggestion – but she had found it too ‘brutal’. Asked by the BBC’s Andrew Marr what it was he had said, she replied: ‘He told me I should sue the EU — not go into negotiations.’ … Mrs. May laughed off the president’s legal action suggestion, saying she would carry on with negotiations, but added: ‘Interestingly, what the president also said at that press conference was ‘don’t walk away’. ‘Don’t walk away from those negotiations because then you’ll be stuck. So I want us to be able to sit down to negotiate the best deal for Britain.’” https://bbc.in/2LeFFXk
ABOUT TRUMP’S TURNBERRY GETAWAY — ANNIE KARNI in Glasgow: “President Donald Trump did not let the pressure of his high-stakes meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin stand in the way of his typical Saturday routine: Tweeting followed by golf on a Trump-branded course. …
“But it was the latest sign of Trump bending the presidency to fit the old lifestyle he misses — even down to sticking with his own [Twitter] account — rather than being shaped by the demands of the office he occupies. During the course of his trip, Trump has conducted himself more like his pre-presidential self than ever before, while traveling. …
“At a black tie dinner on Wednesday night at Blenheim Palace, he made sure that the dinner included some familiar faces from home, among the Brits — including Newsmax CEO Chris Ruddy, a longtime Mar-a-Lago member and Trump friend, Wall Street billionaire Stephen Schwarzman and BlackRock CEO Larry Fink.” https://politi.co/2KZoF8n
POTUS ABROAD — “‘The arrogant American’: Trump avoids mixing with the public on trips to Britain, other foreign countries,” by WaPo’s David Nakamura: “President Barack Obama had just wrapped up a meeting with British Prime Minister David Cameron when they took a detour, visiting a school in South London where they rolled up their sleeves and engaged a pair of students in a table tennis doubles match. The version of ping-pong diplomacy in 2011 didn’t result in a victory at the table — Obama later said the students ‘whipped us.’ But the informal photo op served a political purpose — presenting the two leaders as close partners in touch with the day-to-day lives of ordinary Britons.
“Such cultural moments have long been a staple of foreign trips for U.S. presidents determined to promote America’s democratic values and openness to the world. George W. Bush shared fish and chips with Tony Blair at the Dun Cow pub in 2003, and Bill Clinton went sightseeing and dined with Blair at a local restaurant in 1997. Not so much for President Trump, who has pursued a radically different approach on his trips abroad, including to Britain over the past week.
“Hewing to a formal itinerary limited to working sessions with Prime Minister Theresa May and a tea ceremony with Queen Elizabeth II, Trump has studiously avoided interacting with the public at large. Aides have said the schedule was intentionally designed to keep the president far away from the mass protests in London that greeted his arrival.” https://wapo.st/2JmJPYk
RUSSIA WATCH — “Just Sitting Down With Trump, Putin Comes Out Ahead,” by NYT’s Andrew Higgins and Neil MacFarquhar in Moscow: “When President Vladimir V. Putin of Russia sits down with President Trump in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday for a meeting he has long wanted, he will already have accomplished virtually everything he could reasonably hope for.
“All he really needs to make his meeting with Mr. Trump a success is for it to take place without any major friction — providing a symbolic end to Western efforts to isolate Russia over its actions against Ukraine in 2014, its meddling in the United States election in 2016 and other examples of what the United States Treasury Department has described as Russia’s ‘malign activity’ around the world. …
“As with any negotiation, timing is everything, and Mr. Putin has been gaining a lot of momentum lately. He will arrive in Helsinki after presiding over the final game of the World Cup soccer tournament in Moscow on Sunday, and will meet an American president who has spent the last week berating his NATO allies and undercutting his host in Britain, Prime Minister Theresa May.” https://nyti.ms/2uCAsyc
— CBS’ MARGARET BRENNAN (@margbrennan): “Russian FM Lavrov on Trump-Putin mtg: ‘Yes, there will be interpreters.’ // Q: Will there be no other aides in the room? Lavrov: ‘Well, as things stand now. That is what the American side proposed and we are polite people, so we have agreed.’”
KNOWING BRETT KAVANAUGH – NYT A1, “Influential Judge, Loyal Friend, Conservative Warrior — and D.C. Insider,” by Scott Shane, Steve Eder, Rebecca R. Ruiz, Adam Liptak, Charlie Savage and Ben Protess: “[A]s with any nominee, Judge Kavanaugh and his supporters are carefully shaping his narrative for the diverse Senate and the broader American public: his mother the judge, not his father the lobbyist; his parents’ early struggles, not their second homes in the Florida Keys and on Maryland’s Eastern Shore; his service as a children’s sports coach and a Catholic volunteer, not his participation in some of the most bitter partisan fights in recent times.
“They do not let on that Judge Kavanaugh is by legacy and experience a charter member of elite Washington: His family’s government-centric social circle, his two summer jobs on Capitol Hill, his White House service, his golfing at the capital’s country clubs, his residence in one of the richest suburban enclaves in America. Nor do they note that Judge Kavanaugh’s nomination is the culmination of a 30-year conservative movement to shift the judiciary to the right.” https://nyti.ms/2LgSSvK
SOME GOOD NUGGETS FROM THE CAMPAIGN FINANCE WORLD …
— AARON SCHOCK, who goes on trial for more than 20 federal crimes in January, spent another $28,511 on legal fees. He has just $73,153 on hand, and has $746,985.45 in debt to Jones Day. Jones Day represented him when he resigned from Congress. Don McGahn, now White House counsel, did some work for Schock at Jones Day.
— MJ HEGAR’s “Doors” campaign video — made by Mark Putnam — was a viral hit (http://bit.ly/2NTyYbB). She’s also raised a pile of money. Hegar, who is running against Rep. John Carter (R-Texas), raised $1.1 million in the second quarter of 2018. She has $867,266.98 on hand. The Putnam video cost $41,118.
2020 WATCH — NYT’S ALEX BURNS and JONATHAN MARTIN: “Warren is Preparing for 2020. So Are Biden, Booker, Harris and Sanders”: “Mr. Biden, 75, is preparing to test a contrasting message this fall, with plans to campaign up to four days a week after Labor Day, people familiar with his strategy said. In his speeches so far, Mr. Biden has struck a gentler chord than Mr. Sanders and Ms. Warren, delivering paeans to bipartisanship and beckoning Democrats to rise above Mr. Trump’s demagogic taunts. … Mr. Biden’s most important step so far has been to help install a close ally, James Smith, as the Democratic nominee for governor in the early primary state of South Carolina.” https://nyti.ms/2JqtrpI
— DAVID SIDERS: “Mayors muscle into 2020 presidential race”: “No mayor has ever sprung directly from City Hall to the White House. But that historic streak stands to be tested in 2020, with at least three Democratic mayors mulling presidential campaigns: Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti, former New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu and South Bend, Ind., Mayor Pete Buttigieg.
“They’re exploiting a newfound opening for politicians at the municipal level, one enabled by broader economic and cultural forces, among them the rise of the Democratic Party’s diverse and ascendant Obama coalition.” https://politi.co/2NSOtkq
OUCH! — “Feinstein gets progressive smackdown,” by California Playbookers Carla Marinucci and Jeremy B. White: “California Democrats, torn by infighting between moderate and progressive factions, rebuked Sen. Dianne Feinstein’s bid for a fifth term — for the second time this year.
“The state party’s executive committee voted Saturday to endorse progressive state Sen. Kevin de León in the general election, signaling what many fear will be a divisive Democrat-on-Democrat battle going toward to the fall in California, where the party hoped to put the focus on a host of crucial congressional races that could determine control of the House of Representatives.
“The endorsement delivers a lifeline to de León’s struggling campaign — and the party’s imprimatur, which is accompanied by valuable access to slate cards, email lists and voter outreach machinery that will allow him to reach an estimated 2 million Democratic voters. And he could also get an infusion of federal campaign cash shared with the party, party officials said.” https://politi.co/2NjyXfZ
IVANKA INC. – “Hudson’s Bay Company In Canada Dumping Ivanka Trump Products,” by HuffPost’s Mary Papenfuss: “Canada’s oldest department store chain is dropping all Ivanka Trump products. Hudson’s Bay Company, founded in London in 1670, has already eliminated more than 150 items from its website, including clothing, shoes and jewelry. It will also phase all of the first daughter’s products out of its 90 stores across Canada in the fall. …
“Officials cited the poor sales performance of the product line owned by the senior White House adviser. … Hudson’s Bay, which is headquartered in Toronto, is the 40th Canadian company that has dropped Ivanka Trump’s products since the boycotts were launched, according to the founder of the movement, Shannon Coulter.” http://bit.ly/2zDEcWb
FOR YOUR RADAR – “Western allies plan White Helmets evacuation from Syria,” by CBS News’ Kylie Atwood and Margaret Brennan: “As Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad’s regime violently assaults the southern region of Syria, an area formerly protected by the Trump administration, the members of the all-volunteer rescue organization known as the White Helmets are in danger of assassination. Once favorites to win the Nobel Peace Prize for their life-saving efforts in rebel-held territory throughout Syria’s brutal seven-year war, these rescue workers are now in need of rescuing themselves.
“CBS News has learned the question of how to extract the emergency workers was raised with President Trump in multiple conversations with allied countries on the sidelines of the NATO summit. The Netherlands, U.K., France, Canada and Germany are scrambling to find a way to save the lives of an estimated 1,000 volunteers and their family members. Around 300 of them are considered to be in imminent danger.” https://cbsn.ws/2zFaPTr
