President Trump says he did not ask Comey to end investigation

During Donald Trump's joint press conference Thursday with Colombian President Juan Manuel Santos, Trump took time to distance himself and himself only from any "collusion" with Russian Federation.

Last year, President Obama and President Santos announced Peace Colombia, a plan to provide US funding for the post-conflict era in Colombia once a widely-anticipated peace deal was signed.

-Colombian free trade agreement was working well, despite Colombia running a trade deficit with the United States. "It is a world problem and we have to all work together". He has been fighting cocaine production in his country.

He avoided outright disagreeing with Trump's plan to build a wall along the U.S. -Mexico border, but said that he believes "the best way is to collaborate" with other nations. He said he was "highly alarmed" by record levels of coca cultivation and urged the Colombian government to remedy the problem.

Paul Ryan Discusses Obamacare at Wisconsin Republican Convention
Before the amendments were added, the CBO projected the legislation would slice about $ 150 billion over 10 years . Indeed, the bill was kept away from most Republican lawmakers before its release, prompting the spectacle of Sen.

Santos went on at length about what it will take to effectively combat drug traffickers, and then President Trump offered his own somewhat more one-dimensional solution.

Trump met with Lieberman at the White House on Wednesday, The Associated Press reported. That was the White House's position initially after the deputy attorney general argued in a memo that Comey had erred in handling the FBI's investigation into Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton's private email server, even though Trump had praised Comey on the campaign trail past year.

The White House pushed back on reports of the meeting, instead telling NBC News at the time that the former Colombian leaders were invited to Trump's club by one of its members and shared a mere handshake with Trump when he bumped into them there. Colombia is largely considered a major success story for USA foreign policy.

"The drug epidemic is poisoning too many American lives, and we're going to stop it many different ways". Trump said that "FARC is - that was a long, tough situation" and noted that reaching a deal with the guerrilla group after more than a half-century of war was a "long process, and it's been a great thing to watch".

Billionaire Usmanov made $1.3 billion offer for control of Arsenal
Usmanov, who acquired his fortune in the metal industry, is believed to be concerned by a lack of investment in Arsenal . The 63-year-old tycoon, who started out with a plastic bags business, also heads the International Fencing Federation.

"This is the first time that this could be done because of the peace", Santos said.

When asked whether he supported Trump's planned border wall, Santos, who faces very low approval ratings at home, did not answer directly, but focused on the partnership between the two countries.

When reporters asked Santos whether he believed Trump's proposal to build a wall along the US and Mexican border would be effective to counter narcotics smuggling, Santos evaded answering the question directly.
