Trump on Putin summit: We came to a lot of good conclusions
In interview with Fox News after meeting with his Russian counterpart in Helsinki, President Trump says Putin is 'a believer in Israel, he’s a fan of Bibi,' and will continue to 'help him a lot.'
“At the end of this meeting I think we really came to a lot of good conclusions, a really good conclusion for Israel, something very strong. He’s a believer in Israel, he’s a fan of Bibi,” Trump told Fox News about President Putin, using Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s nickname.
“And (he’s) really helping him a lot and will help him a lot, which is good for all of us,” the president said.
During a joint press conference after the two leaders’ one-on-one meeting, Trump said that the United States and Russia will work together to ensure Israel's security, adding that Netanyahu had been consulted on the matter.
"We both spoke with Bibi and they would like to do certain things with Syria having to do with the safety of Israel," Trump told reporters. "Russia and the United States will work jointly (in this regard)."
"Working with Israel is a great thing and creating safety for Israel is something both Putin and I would like to see very much," Trump said.
