President Trump has made it no secret that he wants better relations with Russia. As the Trump/Russia investigation winds down in the United States, or heads to a climax where Democrats will try to impeach, it seems Trump now feels more enabled to fulfill his agenda. The summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un was likely aided by Moscow. Much negotiation is going on behind the scenes.
On June 10, the Russian president confirmed he was ready to meet with Trump as soon as Washington was ready for the summit, added TASS.
