In-town pool report 2: Trump Russia comment
Cameron Joseph • New York Daily News
May 16, 2017: 01:35 PM

President Trump and Turkish President Erdogan gave remarks in the Roosevelt room, then pool was escorted into spray at lunch. Full remarks coming but here's what Trump said on Russia meeting at the end of Roosevelt room remarks in response to shouted questions:

"We had a very, very successful meeting with the foreign minister of Russia. Our fight is against ISIS. As Gen. McMaster said, I thought he said and I know he feels that we had actually a great meeting with the foreign minister. So we're going to have a lot of great success over the next coming years and we want to get as many to help fight terrorism as possible and that's one of the beautiful things that's happening with Turkey. The relationship that we have together, we'll be unbeatable."
