John Kerry took a hard line Sunday in describing President Trump's meeting with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki this week, Politico reports. Appearing on CBS' Face the Nation, Kerry called the private, unrecorded sit-down "one of the most disgraceful, remarkable moments of kowtowing to a foreign leader by an American president that anyone has ever witnessed." The former Secretary of State went on to explain "why it's dangerous: because it sends a message to President Putin and to the rest of the world that the president of the United States, the leader of the free world, really doesn't have a handle on what he's doing." Kerry added about Trump: "I don't buy his walkback for one second." For other reactions:
- "Not good": Sen. Marco Rubio called Trump's Helsinki meeting with Putin "not a good moment" on Face the Nation. "I think it's an important thing that we engage [Putin]," Rubio says, per the Hill. "I just think it's important that any conversation we have with Vladimir Putin is with the person who he really is."
