U.S. President Donald Trump said he had low expectations for his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday in Helsinki.


“I go in with low expectations,” Trump said in an interview with CBS news published on their website on Sunday. “I’m not going with high expectations.”

Asked about his goals for the meeting, Mr. Trump said only, "I'll let you know after the meeting," promising "nothing bad" is going to come out of the world leaders' discussion.

"I think it's a good thing to meet. I do believe in meetings. I believe that having a meeting with Chairman Kim was a good thing. I think having meetings with the president of China was a very good thing. I believe it's really good. So having meetings with Russia, China, North Korea, I believe in it. Nothing bad is going to come out of it, and maybe some good will come out."
