Trump to sit down with Russian foreign minister, one day after firing Comey
A day after firing the FBI director who had been overseeing the sweeping probe into his campaign's ties to Russia, President Trump has just one event on his public schedule: An Oval Office meeting with Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov.
The sit-down between Trump and Lavrov, the first face-to-face contact the president has had with a senior official of the Russian government, will take place Wednesday at 10:30 a.m. in the White House. It will be closed to the press, according to the White House schedule.
Trump and Lavrov are expected to talk about the turmoil in Syria and fight against global terrorism, among other issues, picking up on the conversation Trump had with Russian President Vladimir Putin via telephone on May 2.
