Friday morning marks Trump’s first state meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, who is accused of attempting to interfere in last year’s U.S. presidential election. Putin is said to have directed cyberattacks on Democrats in order to help Trump win. Trump is expected to discuss the Kremlin’s annexation of Crimea and its role in Syria’s brutal civil war, but it’s unclear if the election meddling will come up.

“I look forward to all meetings today with world leaders, including my meeting with Vladimir Putin,” Trump said in a tweet. “Much to discuss.”

Trump is deeply unpopular worldwide, particularly in Germany where thousands of people on Thursday night protested his visit. He has also repeatedly clashed with German Chancellor Angela Merkel and other world leaders over key issues like immigration, trade and climate change.
