Trump actively prefers summits with America's traditional enemies, Russian Federation and before that North Korea, than conversation with the countries that count as the US' allies.

Earlier Tuesday, House Republicans have used a party-line vote to block a Democratic measure aimed at condemning President Donald Trump's stunning comments in Helsinki, Finland, about Russian Federation.
That's just how much damage Trump did to his presidency with his embarrassing performance in Helsinki on Monday. "2016 was a testing ground and they will try in the future the outcome of any number of elections around the world which they see as crucial for their national interest", Tchantouridze said.
Trump's remarks at the news conference brought swift condemnation from Democrats and Republicans alike. He criticized members of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, the decades-old military alliance, for failing to spend enough on defense and suggested he might not be interested in "paying for Europe's protection" any longer.
As one of our loyal readers, we ask you to be our partner. During his first year in office, he got North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies to increase their defense spending by $12 billion and twice bombed Putin's ally, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, for his regime's use of chemical weapons.
In addition to consulting Trump, Kelly called Republicans and gave them permission to denounce Trump's remarks, according to three Vanity Fair sources familiar with the situation. In a tabloid interview, he criticized May's Brexit plans, said he might no longer be open to a trade deal with the United Kingdom, and said one of May's political rival would be an excellent prime minister, undermining her at a time when her government is in turmoil.
Trump is fond of invoking this one during various speaking engagements or completely unprompted during one of his earl-morning, caps-lock rage tweets.
Days after he had thrown a gathering of his supposed European allies into chaos by threatening to break with them, US President Donald Trump stood in front of media and said that he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin over the findings of more than a dozen American intelligence agencies, all of which concluded that Russia had attempt to meddle in the US electoral process.
Trump can't acknowledge that Russian Federation interfered in the election, because that gives credence to the collusion crowd. Bannon and Lewandowski are probably on the phone with him as I write this encouraging him to get a bust of Putin for the Oval Office.
Trump does not seem to fathom that the problem with U.S. -Russia relations is not a lack of effort on the part of U.S. presidents.
"I'm not pro-Russia, pro-anybody", Trump said. "There is no equivalency between the Russian harassment of Bill Browder" and the indictment of Russian intelligence agents by U.S. Special Counsel Robert Mueller last week.
"They're not saying don't do this or this is the wrong thing to do", Flake said.
Putin denied anew that the Russian government interfered, but he acknowledged Monday that he favored Trump in 2016.
But she took issue with the president's tone, saying Trump bullied other countries into something and then took credit for it.
"He's held aloft by his base for now, but the base alone is not sufficient and I think we're in for a rough ride this fall.""I have confidence in both parties".
Pomeranz said the damage Trump did by describing the E.U.as a foe and lecturing his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies was significant.
