7:13 am
thing, not a bad thing. >> i really think the world wants to see us get along. we are the two great nuclear powers. we have 90% of the nuclear, and that's not a good thing. it'sad thing. and i think we hopefully can do something a ut that because it's not a positive force. it's a negative force. so we'll beha talking about among other things.
7:14 am
>> and with that, the world awaits. i look forward to our personal discuson, which i think begins now, and then we're going to meet our whole team. you have quite a few representatives, and we all have a lot of questions, and hopefully we'll come up with answ great to be with you. >> thank you very much. thank you. thank you, everybody.k thu very much. >> so the ceras wille

ushered out or turned off, and the two will get downo the business of some of those topics the president brought up. trade and china, among other things. just a brief opening remarks there from t president. and as we said, they'll now go off to a 90-minute session. let me bring in ambassador mcfaul. the president talked about something we haven't spent a lot time on, but nuclear weapons. are there points of agreement? what would b the specific issues on the table? >> in 2010, our two countries signed the new start treaty %ducing by the nuclear weapons both can have. it expires in 2021. negotiations for what happens after that need to start now. i'm encouraged he put that issue on the list. i wlso struck by what was not on the list. syria was not on the list, n ukraine w on the list, and russian meddling, russian violation of our sovereignty in 2016 was alsoot on the list.
7:16 am
>> and lester, there is some concern among some of the president's critics that he's going to offer concessions onme of those varpoints that ambassador mcfaul raises. will president trump scale back sanctions against russia? will heagree to remove some of those. those are things putin wants to ask for. you have both sides lowering expectations thathere's fought going to be some big deal coming out of the talks. >> there's much more to come. we will eventually see the two in a joint news conference, the fit time they will have taken questions together. we'll have coverage throughout the morning on nbc news. for now, that's an nbc news special report. i'm. lester holt in helsin good day. and we're back now on "today" wit more on president trump's historic summit with vladimir putin. >> we're joined b senior national security analyst juanz te. he served as the deputy national
7:17 am
security adviser for the second bush pres three days after the russians were indicted forelection meddling. we watched a special report where president trump didn't bring that up. you would think that would be issue one in their meeting together where do y think it will fall if at all? >> it should fall at the top of e list. you have an indictment that gives the president ammunition to pve to president putin that there was meddling. his reaction has been prove it. well, now you have an indicent thatets into gross detail about how his intelligence services went about hacking the u.s. systems and affecting the election, at leastttempting to. i expect this to be top of the list. it should be. what you have is a hyperpersonalized diplomacy. you have diplomacy that startst he summit, doesn't end with the summit, and a president, as you saw, thed a kind of reset moment of his own. he's trying to reset relations. i think he was trying to be as diplomatic as possible, starting
7:18 am
with compliments on the world cup, but hopefully the mting in private gets a lot tougher and more seous. >> kristen welker mentioned the president tweing about united states foolishness and stupidity, calling the mueller investigation a rigged witch hunt. the russian foreign minister retweeting, we agree. >> this is predictable. what you can imagine president putin trying to do is divide him from u.s. poly and his own advisers. that is to say, put his arm aroundnt presirump and play to his instincts and tweets saying look, this investigation, we'r both being affected by it. they're trying to affect our relationship. this is witch hunt. n syria, let us help you get out. on crimea, you have admitted it. this is really russian territory. if that then changes the president's perceptions and policy, which is the most important thing here, then that i think that tweet is an indicator that the russians see an opening here to pla to the
