Polished Putin, tempestuous Trump are a contrast in foreign policy styles

(CNN)Last year’s Helsinki summit still seems to be paying dividends for Russian President Vladimir Putin.

President Donald Trump’s closed-door meeting with the Kremlin leader last July was in the news again this weekend, following a report by The Washington Post that highlighted Trump’s efforts to keep the details of his face-to-face encounters with Putin from public scrutiny.
The Helsinki summit was a prime example: Trump and Putin met for two hours, accompanied only by translators, fitting what the Post described as a pattern of secrecy about Trump’s encounters with Putin. (When asked about the story, Trump told Fox News host Jeanine Pirro on Saturday he and Putin had “a great conversation.”)
