Trump and Putin at G20 (July 2017)Russia's influence in the Middle East is one good reason for President Donald Trump to sit down with Russia's president next month, says a Middle East expert.

Following President Trump's historic summit with North Korean dictator Kim Jong Un earlier this month, the White House and Kremlin jointly announced that the President will hold a summit with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki Finland on July 16 to discuss bilateral issues and international relations.

Brigitte Gabriel, founder and president of ACT for America, says she expects Trump to enter that meeting expecting something "fruitful" to come out of it.

"Otherwise he wouldn't go down this road," she says of Trump. "He has proven himself in a very short period of time that he has led this nation."

The meeting comes after John Bolton, Trump's national security advisor, met with Russian officials in Moscow to lay the groundwork for the meeting, The Associated Press reported.

Trump has had only two brief, sideline meetings with Putin in the last year and this will be the first "full-fledged" summit, the AP reported.
