CNN: Trump to speak with Putin on Tuesday

Washington (CNN)President Donald Trump is set to speak by phone with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Tuesday, their first call since Russia denounced a US military strike against Syria last month.

Trump and Putin will talk Tuesday afternoon, a White House official said, in their third phone conversation since Trump took office. They last spoke following a terror attack in St. Petersburg, Russia, in early April, and also chatted a week after Trump's inauguration in January.

The call comes after Putin characterized a US strike against a Syrian government air base "aggression against a sovereign state in violation of the norms of international law." The US strike was in response to a suspected chemical attack by Syrian leader Bashar al-Assad, a Putin ally, on his own people.

Like what? :)
"You stop backing Assad and we give you crimea officially?" I don't think east Ukraine would fly, hence the sanctions mostly stay. Plus. .we are not making deals on Syria because we have no idea about who to back and what next move would make sense :)
And on North Korea. ..I'm not really seeing anything major either

It's more going to be "please don't show pee tape you have of me" "OK but no sanctions, we get Ukraine east and crimea" ;)))
