Donald Trump claims he warned Vladimir Putin against election meddling

Mr. Putin's ambassador to the United States said Moscow is open to discussing such a meeting, even as confusion abounds over exactly what they discussed the first time.

American intelligence agencies concluded previous year that Russian Federation carried out a campaign of hacking and propaganda targeting the 2016 US election, seeking to sow discord and disparage Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

However, neither Trump nor the White House has confirmed any agreements between the two countries. Once he got there, he returned to Twitter to complain about news coverage of Monday's meeting.

Less than a third of Americans approve of how President Donald Trump handled his summit Monday in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin, but nearly 70 percent of Republicans think he did a good job, a new poll found. In the Old Days they would call it Diplomacy. He said he misspoke when he said be didn't believe Russian Federation was behind any cyber attack, only to backtrack again by saying it "could be other people also" who interfered with the election, CNN reports.

Moscow is open to a possible visit by Vladimir Putin to Washington after a surprise invitation from Donald Trump, Russia's U.S. envoy has said.

Huckabee Sanders also announced that the White House would not proceed with a plan to extradite U.S. citizens to Russian Federation for questioning in exchange for Russian Federation allowing its intelligence officials to be questioned as part of the Mueller probe. "I want to make a deal.' I want to make a deal".

Mr. Trump also passed on the chance to rebuke Mr. Putin for Russia's hacking.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had a sunnier view of the likely second get-together. If that meeting takes place in Washington, I think it is all to the good. "Those conversations are incredibly important".

Only interpreters were present for the two leaders' private meeting and details of what was discussed remain unknown.

Mr Trump notably flip-flopped repeatedly over what exactly he said to Mr Putin at the summit, and whether he believes that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election campaign on Trump's behalf.

And Coats was blindsided by the White House announcement Thursday that Putin had been invited to Washington this fall.

The Russian government has been somewhat more forthcoming. He did not elaborate on what Putin's solutions would be.

The Pentagon on Friday announced it's giving $200 million to Ukraine to bolster its defenses as its conflict with pro-Russian separatists rages on.

President Donald Trump continued Thursday to pursue a blame-the-media strategy as he faced a bipartisan backlash over his handling of the summit in Helsinki with Vladimir Putin - and said he would hold another meeting with the Russian leader, perhaps this fall in the White House.

"There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems ... but they can ALL be solved!" Coats, for one, said he does not know what happened during the meeting.

Putin has denied such interference.

Coats made those surprise admissions Thursday in his first public comments since rebutting Trump's questioning of the USA intelligence assessment that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

Time magazine on the cover of its latest 30 July issue features a morphed image of the US President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.

Trump had praised the proposal on Monday as an "incredible offer" and Sanders later described it as an "interesting idea" that was being discussed internally.
