U.S. National Security Adviser John Bolton said President Trump would meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin regardless of political criticism, calling it “complete nonsense” for people to think the meeting is proof of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

A reporter asked Bolton Wednesday afternoon whether agreed that conflicts between Republicans and Democrats in the United States prevent the two countries from having a productive relationship.

“Well, I think a lot of people have said or implied over time that a meeting between President Trump and President Putin would somehow prove some nexus between the Trump campaign and the Kremlin, which is complete nonsense,” Bolton said.

Bolton then told reporters that Trump recognizes that there may be some criticism back home over his decision to meet with Putin.

“What must guide his conduct of American foreign policy is the pursuit of American national interest. And he judges, correctly in my view, that this bilateral summit between himself and President Putin is something he needs to do and will do regardless of political criticism at home,” Bolton added.
