According to the Post, Trump's alleged behavior is "is at odds with the known practices of previous presidents", who, when meeting with individuals like Putin, for example, "relied on senior aides to witness meetings and take comprehensive notes then shared with other officials and departments".
US officials only learned of Trump's actions when two aides sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout from then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the Post said.
Later, at the same G-20 summit, Trump and Putin spoke at a banquet with only Putin's interpreter present.
After that meeting, Trump and Putin held a memorable joint press conference during which Trump doubted US intelligence agencies' conclusions about Russian election interference.
At the same time the FBI opened a probe into President Donald Trump for possible obstruction of justice after he fired FBI Director James Comey, counterintelligence agents were investigating why Trump was acting in ways that seemed to benefit Russian Federation, according to a source familiar with the matter.

"If you compare objectively, President Trump's policies to Russia compared to President Obama's policies to Russia - by any measure, President Obama was much easier, was much more gentler on Russia". A White House spokesperson told the Post, without mentioning Hamburg specifically, that Trump "has affirmed that he supports the conclusions in the 2017 Intel Community Assessment".
