Trump and Putin discussed possible referendum in eastern Ukraine

Patty Aguilar | 20 July, 2018, 22:15

Coats, the nation's top intelligence official, said "Did I hear you", per the HuffPost, then paused before saying: "OK".

With confusion still swirling around what the two men discussed behind closed doors in Helsinki earlier this week, Ambassador Anatoly Antonov said it's important to "deal with the results" of their first summit before jumping too fast into a new one.

The former Republican lawmaker was banned from travelling to Russian Federation in 2014 for calling out its annexation of Crimea.

Coats said he wished Trump hadn't made the statement backing up the "powerful" denial by Vladimir Putin of election hacking.

"The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media".

In Moscow, Putin said the summit "was successful overall and led to some useful agreements" without elaborating on the agreements. "Trump is bruised by the idea that Russian election meddling taints his victory, those close to him say, and can't concede the fact that Russia did try to interfere in the election, regardless of whether it impacted the outcome".

"Until we know what happened at that two-hour meeting in Helsinki, the president should have no more one-on-one interactions with Putin". "I'm a low-key, understated guy, but that should not be mistaken for what my spine is made out of", Wray said.

Being on the Time cover is something of a personal obsession for Trump. "That's why we are taking steps to ensure this does not happen", White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said.

The week was one of the toughest for Trump since he took office 18 months ago as aides struggled with damage control and convincing Americans that the president did not favor Russian interests over his own country's. He said the summit notably made progress on U.S.

It restated the USA intelligence community's assessment that Moscow did extensively interfere, and continues to interfere.

But the director of national intelligence, who oversees the United States' sprawling spy agencies, has been front and center in the past week as he has pushed back against President Trump over Russia's interference in American elections.

It was the latest about-face in a week of multiple reversals.

Trump later said he misspoke about Russia's election interference and meant to say he did not "see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation".

He said issues such as limiting their nuclear arsenals or ending the Syrian war were being affected by USA internal critics of Mr Trump.

On Wednesday, the Russian Prosecutor General's office listed Americans it wanted to question for "illegal activities", including Michael McFaul, who was USA ambassador to Russia under Democratic former President Barack Obama.

At the same forum in Colorado, deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein released a 156-page report detailing a strategy to combat future attempts by foreign governments to influence United States elections, including by revealing them to the public.
