He returns to Washington now to find the USA capital much the same as he left it - engulfed in the latest revelations about the federal investigation into his campaign's contacts with Russian Federation and with questions about the future of his presidency still swirling.
"Just returned from Europe".
Trump, whose Marine One helicopter landed from Taormina to the soaring soundtrack of the "Air Force One" movie, emerged from two days of closed door summitry to declare his trip a success.
