A round-up of GOP Senate reactions to President Trump’s meeting with Vladimir Putin

Shortly after President Trump concluded his bilateral meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, Senator Ben Sasse (R-Nebraska) took to the Senate floor and made one thing very clear – Putin emerged as the winner of the summit, not the United States.

We did not negotiate from a position of strength. We acted from a position of weakness. As a result, one of the world’s worst despots walked away today from Helsinki with a win.

Reaction from other Republican Senators varied, but many agreed that the summit was not a win for the United States, and that Putin poses a continued threat to U.S. national security that cannot be ignored.
