"Trump cuddled up to Russian ruler Vladimir Putin in a presser as the two men headed into their Helsinki one-on-one meeting, calling Putin's hosting of the World Cup, beautifully done". Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin.

"As president, I will always put what is best for America and what is best for the American people", Trump explained. The two leaders "spent a great deal of time talking about it", he said. But Monday's session was condemned in advance by members of Congress from both parties after the US indictment last week of 12 Russian military intelligence officers accused of hacking Democrats in the 2016 election to help Trump's presidential campaign. "We've all been foolish", he said, before veering into discussion about his election victory. In response, President Trump, standing alongside a smiling Putin, said he could not be certain that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

Mr. Putin also offered to work with the US analyzing the cyber attacks.

Browder was a driving force behind a US law targeting Russian officials over human rights abuses.

Trump went on to claim the Mueller probe was part of a pattern of "stupidity" that hurt USA relations with Russian Federation.

The Russian Foreign Ministry responded by tweet: "We agree". I think it's kept us separated. "The probe in a disaster for our country". Putin, speaking through an interpreter, once again denied what he described as "so-called interference of Russian Federation".

President Trump doubled down on his belief that the United States and Russia must have good relations and did not mention that 12 Russian officials had recently been indicted for interfering in the 2016 presidential election.

The police say the officer spotted a auto matching the description of a vehicle connected to a murder earlier in the day. Police Activity reports that the occupants of the vehicle were 22-year-old Fidel Miranda and 30-year-old Rene Nunez.


Whether the leaders of the world's two foremost nuclear superpowers would resolve any of their disagreements was an open question as they began their first extensive face-to-face talks since Trump assumed power almost 18 months ago. I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade. I think that the United States has been foolish, I think we've all been foolish.

Speaking to Metro.co.uk, Ms James said: 'The body language between these two men was so emphatically frosty on the way into their meeting that a political conspiracy theorist could argue that it was all staged like a pre-match prizefighters weigh in to add drama to any rapport signals once they come out.

"Most importantly, we have a lot of good things to talk about". He nodded along to some of Trump's remarks before they were translated, showcasing his fluency in English. They met on the sidelines of world leader meetings in Germany and Vietnam a year ago.

The denial comes just days after the release of more indictments stemming from special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, which alleges that 12 Russian intelligence officers hacked the Democratic National Committee, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign, and released emails under the names DC Leaks and Guccifer 2.0, with the intention of impacting the results of the 2016 presidential campaign.

Trump and his aides have repeatedly tried to lower expectations about what the summit will achieve. Trump leaned forward in his chair, his hands tented in front of him and frequently glanced over at the Russian president. At one point, he shot Putin a wink.

Putin said it was "nonsense" to think Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election.

With that, the leaders gave a quick handshake and their private meeting in the opulent Gothic Hall was under way.
