Sources say Trump, Hill leaders to meet next Wednesday

Some Republicans have complained that Trump's public efforts are coming late in the legislative year and worry his speech on Wednesday could veer into issues that might overshadow tax reform, including US race relations, North Korea and his differences with Republicans in Congress.

In President Trump's press conference today with Finnish President Niinisto, a Finnish reporter appeared to be trying to get Trump to say something negative about Russian maneuvers in the Baltic.

It's not the easiest case to make when the President is pinned down by some of the lowest approval ratings in history, a revolving door of senior aides and officials, and a staggeringly short list of worldwide supporters, but the past few days may have, in some respects, saved the Trump White House. She first tried to put Niinisto on the spot with a similar question, asking what advice he had given Trump with regard to dealing with such an "adversary".

"One way or the other Mexico is going to pay for the wall", said Trump.

"I would consider many countries threats, but these are all threats that we'll be able to handle if we have to".

Reiterating a 2016 campaign theme on a visit to Springfield, Missouri, Trump will say the U.S. economy is "rigged" to favor the privileged few and urge closing loopholes for the wealthy and special interests to help "Main Street".

Lawmakers will have other vital issues to handle when they return from vacation next week, including raising the federal debt ceiling and avoiding a government shutdown.

But Mexico's Foreign Relations Secretary Luis Videgaray, in Washington for a previously scheduled meeting with Tillerson, said either way, Mexico is "here to help". "We are very protective of that region".

For instance, in this 2015 Pew Research Center poll, despite low marks for government overall, 88 percent of respondents said government has an important role to play in responding to natural disasters, and 79 percent said it was doing a good job on that task. Finland recently inherited chairmanship of the advisory Arctic Council from the United States. I say it loud and clear, I've been saying it for years: I think it's a good thing if we have great relationships, or at least good relationships with Russian Federation. The U.S. hasn't formally responded to the offer to say whether it will accept it.

"Finland has been free of Russian Federation, really-just about one of the few countries in the region that has been-for 100 years".

Earlier this month, Trump said he will build the wall "if we have to close down our government." . The Soviet Union invaded Finland in November 1939.

REPORTER: We have a lot of blonde women in Finland.

"I hope that's not necessary".

Trump adds that he stands by his pardon and says, "I think the people of Arizona who really know him best would agree with me".
