"I don't think you'll have any 'Gee, I did it, I did it".
The Helsinki summit is the capstone to a almost week-long trip for Trump during which he has sown doubts about his commitment to the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation military alliance, Washington's so-called special relationship with Britain, and US relations with the European Union that he called "a foe" in trade terms.
President Donald Trump is describing the European Union as a "foe" in an interview taped in Scotland.
"President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today", Trump said as he stood next to Putin at a joint news conference between the two leaders following their talks in Helsinki.
"Russia has done nothing to deserve us meeting them in this way", said Nina Jankowicz, a global fellow at the Wilson Center's Kennan Institute who specializes in Russia, Ukraine and disinformation. "But that doesn't mean they are bad". It doesn't mean anything.
Trump spent the weekend in Scotland at his resort in Turnberry, golfing, tweeting and granting an interview to CBS News in which he named the European Union, a bloc of nations that includes many of America's closest allies, at the top of his list of biggest global foes.
The top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, Mark Warner, said he was anxious about Trump being alone in the room with Putin, without his national-security aides.

Japan nearly paid the price for resting players against Poland and only went through because Senegal had more yellow cards. Once Colombia had scored in Samara , Japan knew it had done enough to advance even though it was losing late in its match.
Trump told CBS News that he is going into the meeting with Putin with "low expectations", but repeated that he thinks it's "a good thing to meet".
Putin made Trump wait for him, arriving behind schedule in Helsinki as the two leaders attempted yet another reset of U.S-Russian relations.
Before Monday's meeting, Trump criticised previous United States administrations on Twitter, saying: "Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of USA foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!"
He writes, "If I was given the great city of Moscow as retribution for all of the sins and evils committed by Russian Federation over the years, I would return to criticism that it wasn't good enough - that I should have gotten Saint Petersburg in addition!" "Well, I might", Trump said when asked about it. So, he wondered what Trump has to ask from Russian President Vladimir Putin for the attacks. The visit has been controversial because of a newspaper interview in which he said the USA would probably not give the United Kingdom a trade deal under the terms of Prime Minister May's Brexit plans, and also said Europe was "losing its character" because of immigration from Africa and the Middle East.
The press conference occurred after Putin and Trump held a meeting in which they were joined only by translators.

Paul also says Putin isn't going to extradite the 12 Russian military intelligence officials charged with hacking Democrats.
"I've not been here too long (as president), it's getting close to two years, but we'll be having an extraordinary relationship, I hope so". A Finnish newspaper placed billboards around Helsinki with various messages for Trump - like "Make Human Rights Great Again" and "Mr. President, welcome to the land of free press".
In response, Mrs May's spokesman said: "We have said before that it is important we engage in constructive dialogue to find the right way forward when it comes to the disagreement now taking place on tariffs".
