President Trump will speak on the phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin Tuesday afternoon, according to a schedule released by the White House.
It is the first time the two leaders have spoken on since Russia criticized the United States’ missile strike on a Syrian airfield.
While Trump had spoken about improving relations with Russia on the campaign trail, recently the President said the relationship between the two superpowers was strained.
“We’re not getting along with Russia at all,” Trump said last month. “We may be at an all-time low.”
