Swamputin, not

Times UK: Donald Trump is planning to hold a summit with Vladimir Putin within weeks of becoming president — emulating Ronald Reagan’s Cold War deal-making in Reykjavik with Mikhail Gorbachev. 
 Trump and his team have told British officials that their first foreign trip will be a meeting with the Russian leader, with the Icelandic capital in pole position to host the superpower talks as it did three decades ago. In a bid to reset western relations with the Kremlin, Trump will begin work on a deal limiting nuclear weapons.
Incoming White House press secretary Sean Spicer on Saturday evening denied a report that President-elect Donald Trump would be meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in his first foreign trip as president.Spicer called the report in The Sunday Times highlighted by media outlets "100 percent false" in a tweet.
