Trump Says He Wants To Meet With Russia's Putin Soon

Russian Federation is also facing huge pressure from Britain and its allies to explain how its former double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter were poisoned on British soil with a nerve agent the United Kingdom says is Soviet-designed. Relations between the two countries instead have remained tense amid the allegations of Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election and the investigations of whether there was collusion between Trump's campaign and Russia. They remain critically ill.

During Tuesday's briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders responded to a question about McCain's critique by saying, "The president has maintained that it is important for us to have a dialogue with Russian Federation".

Before a meeting with the Crown Prince of Saudi Arabia, the president said he will talk with Putin about issues pertaining Ukraine, Syria, and North Korea.

"We had a very good call", Trump said, adding that he expects to meet Putin "in the not too distant future to discuss the arms race, which is getting out of control".

"The two leaders discussed the state of bilateral relations and resolved to continue dialogue about mutual national security priorities and challenges", said a statement from the White House. Two people familiar with the notecards acknowledged that they included instructions not to congratulate Putin.

It was not clear whether Trump read the notes, administration officials said.

The Kremlin spokesman says it's no big deal that U.S. President Donald Trump didn't congratulate Vladimir Putin on his re-election as president.

The president's tone drew a rebuke from Sen. "An American president does not lead the Free World", he said, "by congratulating dictators on winning sham elections".

Putin won his fourth term in Sunday's presidential election with 77 percent of the votes.

Congratulating him, German Chancellor Angela Merkel called for "sustainable solutions" to global challenges without specifying which ones. "I wouldn't read much into it", Corker said.

Sanders said Trump didn't criticize the conduct of Russia's election in the call. The White House later said there were no specific plans for a summit meeting.

In his conversation with Mr Macron, Mr. Putin described the nerve agent allegations as "unsubstantiated and said Russian Federation was willing to hold a joint investigation".

Dafuq? Notice he didn't mention the poisoning of an enemy and his daughter on British soil or Russia's ongoing cyber attacks. Russian Federation denies interference in the election.

"I had a call with President Putin and congratulated him on the victory, his electoral victory", Trump admitted, because of course he did.

Nauert's comments are notably tougher on Russian Federation than those of the White House.

"We will work to cultivate the relationship with Russian Federation and we will impose costs when Russian Federation threatens our interests, but we will also look for places to work together when it serves our interests", the spokesman added.

Trump has always been reluctant to publicly criticize Putin.

Trump noted that his administration was spending $700 billion to upgrade the USA military, and said he would never allow Russian Federation, or any other country, to approach its military might.

"We don't get to dictate how other countries operate".

"Putin was elected", she added. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said "the president can call whomever he chooses" but noted that "calling him wouldn't have been high on my list".

"The president can call whomever he chooses", McConnell said at his weekly news conference Tuesday. "I'm always reminded of the election they used to have in nearly every communist country where whoever the dictator was at the moment always got huge percentage of the vote".

Sanders told reporters that Trump also didn't raise the issues of election meddling or Russia's allegedly tainted voting process.

They spoke after Washington slapped a new round of sanctions against Moscow created to punish Russians responsible for attempts to interfere in the 2016 presidential elections. "Putin remains open to normalizing relations with our USA partners, where it is of interest and crucial", Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov said on Tuesday, according to the Russian-state news agency TASS. It's disheartening at a time when our trans-Atlantic partners really need a boost.

"Everyone is trying to figure out what does this mean", Wright said.
