Round 2 for Trump-Putin: A fall invite amid summit mop-up

Vladimir Putin Bishop, Wong contract "Trump derangement syndrome"

"Of course, let's see how events will develop further", he said, without disclosing the nature of the agreements he referred to.

He was quoted by AFP as saying in a Moscow speech that Trump's critics in the United States were "pathetic, worthless people", an apparent allusion to a quotation by Soviet satirists Ilya Ilf and Yevgeny Petrov. He called the news media the "real enemy of the people" again in a tweet, a message that resonates with his political supporters. Mr Putin has denied such interference. On Monday, Trump tried to walk back his remark that he didn't see any reason why Russian Federation would have meddled in the 2016 election, after intelligence officials and lawmakers of both parties decried his comments as treasonous. -Russian relations are "in some ways worse than during the Cold War, " but that his meeting with Trump on Monday allowed them to start on "the path to positive change".

In his Twitter comments, Trump claimed that the "Fake News Media" was going "crazy" and that it wanted to see a "major confrontation" with Moscow, even one that could lead to war.

On Thursday, the White House said Trump "disagrees" with Putin's offer to swap the questioning of 12 Russians accused of 2016 election interference for an interview with the former US ambassador.

U.S. lawmakers are calling for a court demand to be issued for the notes of the United States translator who accompanied Mr Trump to his two-hour meeting with Mr Putin.

Following the meeting, Trump faced wide criticism from both Republican and Democratic lawmakers for not directly condemning Putin for trying to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.

Trump and Putin both praised US-Russia military ties and spoke vaguely about Syria to reporters on Monday after their talks in Helsinki, Finland, noting shared concerns for the security of Syria's neighbor, Israel. "I think it's outrageous".

"I think it was Russian Federation".

Coats noted that Pompeo has projected a longer time frame. So right now, you know, we have the Defense Ministry - Russian Defense Ministry, and then the Russian ambassador to the USA mentioning - just mentioning agreements made - verbal agreements. "And it has had a negative impact upon the relationship of the two largest nuclear powers in the world".

Senate Republican leader Mitch McConnell said he asked two Senate panels to recommend additional action aimed at preventing future Russian election meddling and hold hearings on an existing Russia sanctions law.

He added that Russian Federation is "nevertheless open to developing contacts with the United States on the basis of equality".

"They are feeding millions of their people stories", he said.

Despite his attempt at damage control over the reaction in Washington, Mr Trump has continued to insist that his meeting with Mr Putin was something to be proud of and has now said that he is anticipating another summit.

However, all of the clips in the video don't show Trump definitively saying Russian Federation interfered in the election-and many times feature him hedging the statement by claiming other countries could have interfered as well.
