Obama issued an anniversary declaration with Medvedev in 2010 as the U.S. sought to ‘reset’ relations with a new Russian leader; the two sides had recently signed an arms-control pact
President Trump issued a symbolic joint statement Saturday with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in a move that has stirred debate within the Trump administration and spawned concern among some lawmakers on Capitol Hill, according to people familiar with the document.
The unusual declaration is intended to commemorate the 75th anniversary of a meeting between American and Soviet troops at the Elbe River on April 25, 1945.
