NBC’s Andrea Mitchell: There’s Never Been Summit Between KGB Spymaster and POTUS Who Spent Weekend Golfing
On Sunday, NBC News Chief Foreign Affairs Correspondent Andrea Mitchell sat down with MSNBC host Kasie Hunt to talk about the upcoming summit between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin slated for Monday.
Mitchell noted that the summit between the two leaders in Helsinki is “unique.”
“We’ve never had a summit with a KGB spymaster, someone who has completely studied and examined Donald Trump and a president who spent the weekend golfing and has not been preparing.”
She continued on that on Trump’s side, ‘There was no planning for this summit, no deeply organized strategy sessions” to discuss goals and what they want to get out of it.
She further added it was “startling” that Trump is meeting one-on-one with Putin.
“We are not going to have a record of this one-on-one meeting and that is alarming to a lot of former advisors in both political parties,” Mitchell stressed.
She concluded that this meeting was even more impromptu than Singapore “and that’s saying a lot.”
