President Donald Trump hinted in a new interview he might cancel a planned meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin at the upcoming G-20 Summit because of Russia's aggressive actions against Ukraine.
Trump made the remark during an interview with The Washington Post, noting his decision whether to hold the meeting might hinge on a forthcoming report that will detail the Black Sea clash between Russia and Ukraine on Sunday.
"That will be very determinative," Trump said. "Maybe I won't even have the meeting. . . . I don't like that aggression. I don't want that aggression at all."
The G-20 Summit in Buenos Aires, Argentina, is scheduled for Nov. 30-Dec. 1. Among the hot topics going into the meeting are Russia's actions toward Ukraine and the murder of a Saudi Arabian journalist at the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.
Russia fired upon Ukrainian military ships Sunday, seized three of them, rammed a Ukrainian tug boat, and blocked access through the Kerch Strait.
