The first meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin Friday will be closely watched but not because of any expectations of progress. While both have expressed a desire to repair relations, expectations of easing what some call a new Cold War are low. As VOA's Daniel Schearf reports from Washington, the meeting has been clouded by investigations of the Trump campaign's alleged links to Russia and Russian hacking of the U.S. 2016 election.
