“You have spent the week taking on NATO allies, criticizing Prime Minister May on her own soil, and I wonder are you giving Russian President Vladimir Putin the upper hand heading into your talks, given that you are challenging these alliances that he seeks to break up and destroy?” Welker asked, adopting a standard mainstream media line on Russia.
