Trump says looks forward to second Putin meeting

Earlier this week, Trump and Putin had held a joint press conference, where Trump had refuted the conclusions made by USA intelligence officials' that Russian Federation meddled in 2016 presidential election.

"I think it was a strong news conference", Trump told CBS news, responding to a question on criticism of his performance at the press conference.

Turning over former US Ambassador Michael McFaul to Russian Federation for questioning would be grounds for impeaching President Donald Trump, Rep. Eric Swalwell declared on Wednesday.

U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, FBI Director Christopher Wray and Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen publicly reaffirmed their confidence in the findings after the Helsinki meeting.

The Russian leader praised Mr Trump's mediation efforts in North Korea, but slammed his decision to pull out of the global accord curbing Iran's nuclear activities. When asked by a reporter Tuesday if Russian Federation was continuing to target the U.S., Trump replied, "No".

Trump has flip-flopped repeatedly over what exactly he said to Putin at the summit earlier this week, and whether he believes that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election.

"I think it's outrageous".

In that stark photo illustration, the towering figure of Trump looms over a sobbing child, who is the subject of a now-iconic photograph taken by Pulitzer Prize-winning photographer John Moore.

Dori could not believe the stumbling on the president's part, calling it "beyond credulity" that Trump's PR experts could not have come up with anything better than "ridiculously trying to flip-flop" on the previous day's comments. I want to focus on how we're going to ratchet down tensions.

President Trump appeared to offer another confounding version of what happened at his summit with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin during an interview Wednesday. When Trump said he couldn't see any reason why Russian Federation "would" have been involved in the USA presidential election what he meant to say was "wouldn't". Nonetheless, Browder was tried in absentia and sentenced to prison in Russia, making him a fugitive of Russian law enforcement.

"The sentence should have been: "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't" or 'why it wouldn't be Russian Federation", he told reporters at the White House.

The information includes stolen emails from the Democratic National Committee that had been seen in Russian military intelligence networks by the British, Dutch and American intelligence services, The Times said.

"All this backtracking is frustrating because we've seen with Trump that if a button gets pushed, he really doubles down and escalates things", the 41-year-old mother of two said.

"At least I can respect the fact that he was honest with us", Bostjancic said.

Newt Gingrich, a staunch Republican ally whose wife Clarissa Gingrich is Trump's ambassador to the Vatican, called the Helsinki news conference the "most serious mistake" of the Trump presidency.

On Tuesday, Trump read from a printed statement, and said he had misspoken in Helsinki.
