"I think the situation in Ukraine is very important. I think that the meetings coming up with Russia and Ukraine are very important. And there's a possibility that a very big progress can be made. It's very important for Ukraine. I think it's very important from the standpoint of Russia also that they work out a treaty, they work out peace because they've been fighting a long time – too long. And I think there's a real good chance that that will happen," Trump said in London Tuesday, speaking at a joint press conference with his French counterpart Emmanuel Macron.
