Meeting face to face with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump's "America First" policy will be put to the test if he opts to confront Russia over intelligence that Moscow meddled in the 2016 presidential election.All 17 U.S. intelligence agencies have agreed that Russia was behind last year's hack of the Democratic Party's email systems and tried to influence the 2016 election to benefit Trump.Trump will be under pressure to side with the U.S. intelligence agencies and press Putin on the issue of election meddling, something he has thus far been reluctant to do. Trump has staunchly denied that he had any contacts with Russia during his campaign. Putin's spokesman Dmitry Peskov told Russian news agencies after the White House's announcement that Putin is expecting to meet with Trump in Hamburg.Trump frequently said he was hopeful of improving American ties with Russia.
