President Donald Trump plans to open a dialogue with Russia on Saturday that could eventually lead to the lifting of American sanctions.

When he was asked about that possibility at a news conference on Friday, Trump said it's "very early" to be talking about lifting the sanctions imposed by former President Barack Obama.

"But we look to have a great relationship with all countries, ideally," Trump added.

On "Special Report" tonight, Charles Krauthammer said a "great relationship" with Russia is not a goal in and of itself.

He explained that we would only want a constructive relationship with Moscow if that meant getting them out of the Ukraine, halting the genocide in Syria and stopping them from threatening their neighbors.

"If they act responsibly and humanely, yes, we'll have good relations," Krauthammer said. "Otherwise, we're going to have lousy relations. And we should."

He added that Russian President Vladimir Putin has a "hollowness" in his eyes that betrays his untrustworthiness.

"As long as there is, we are not going to have good relations with this man."
