“Maybe I won’t have the meeting. Maybe I won’t even have the meeting,” Trump said Tuesday in an interview with the Washington Post. “I don’t like that aggression. I don’t want that aggression at all.”
Trump said he’s awaiting a “full report” from his national security team about the incident on Sunday, when Russia seized three Ukrainian ships and detained 23 sailors. Ukraine imposed martial law in some regions after Russia’s move, a major re-escalation of hostilities that drew recriminations from the U.S. and European Union.
The Trump-Putin get-together in Argentina would be the first one-on-one meeting between the American and Russian presidents since a summit in Helsinki in July. DM
