The United States President Donald Trump met with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki on Monday, marking the official beginning of the summit between the two leaders. As the two presidents exchanged pleasantries, both sat down, with Trump starting to make statements. The US President noted that he would be talking about "good things" during his one-on-one talks with Putin. Trump called nuclear weapons a "bad thing," Trump says, "We are two great nuclear powers. It's a bad thing. Hopefully, we can do something about it. It's not a positive force, it's a negative force."
