Trump and Poroshenko would seem to have a lot in common

Washington CNN  — 

When Petro Poroshenko visited the White House on Tuesday, the Ukrainian President wasn’t greeted by the traditional pomp and circumstance that comes with a foreign leader meeting with the president of the United States.

Poroshenko – who is viewed as an enemy to Russian leaders in Moscow – was scheduled to “drop by” a meeting with President Donald Trump and national security adviser H.R. McMaster during his previously scheduled visit with Vice President Mike Pence, according to the White House schedule.
