Report: Top Trump aides worry about what he will say in Putin meeting

President Trump's top aides are reportedly worried about what their boss will say to Russian President Vladimir Putin when they meet at the upcoming G-20 summit, according to a report from the New York Times.

Among the topics that aides are concerned Trump may discuss with Putin is their mutual distrust of the media, the Times reports.

Trump himself isn't worried about the meeting at all, according to the Times report. The president is more concerned with being criticized by German Chancellor Angela Merkel over his decision to exit the Paris climate agreement.

Former Defense Department official Derek Chollet told the Times that Putin will be very prepared for this meeting saying, "he's someone who is a master at manipulation."

Chollett went on to say, "I expect an Olympian level of macho posturing between these two leaders, who both understand the power of symbolism."
