On Monday, he told reporters "we don't like what's happening either way", but on Tuesday, in an interview with the Washington Post, he suggested that he might cancel the Putin meeting over the crisis.

She did not say why the meetings with Recep Tayyip Erdogan and Moon Jae-in had been downgraded.

This is in reference to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. She was expected to arrive late to the summit, and the meeting did not appear on Trump's schedule for Friday.

Scrapping the meeting with Putin, though, did not eliminate all of the President's flair for make-or-break drama.

"First of all, questions related to bilateral relations, we need to think about how to start talking on matters of bilateral relations, on matters of strategic security and disarmament and on regional conflicts", he told journalists in a regular press briefing. But if you want to talk about actual diplomacy, things that are happening with Russian Federation, that is a very different thing.
