President Trump told reporters Monday that he will meet with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 Summit on June 28 and 29 in Osaka, Japan.

Why it matters: This will be the first time Trump will meet with Putin since the release of the Mueller report, and the first time he'll meet with Xi since U.S.-China trade talks collapsed, resulting in increased tariffs on $200 billion worth of Chinese goods and threats of retaliation. Trump also told reporters that he hasn't yet decided whether to go forward with new tariffs on $325 billion of Chinese goods, as he has previously threatened.
