  • Inside Trump's isolation after Putin summit, walkbacks

"My people came to me - [U.S. Director of National Intelligence] Dan Coats came to me and some others - and they said they think it's Russian Federation".

The Washington Post reported that Trump specifically admired how Putin is "strong, smart, and cunning".

The reviews he received were muted - Mr. Trump rarely takes kindly to direct confrontation - but it was a taste of what awaited him on his return in Washington, where stalwart allies like Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell and former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich were speaking out. In exchange, he said, Russian authorities could interview several Americans the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes. "It isn't especially noteworthy to me", he said.

"Hopefully President Putin will have the 12 identified Russians come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt", she added.

The US intelligence community concluded Russian Federation interfered in the election, under the direction of Putin, to help Trump win.

In a series of tweets Thursday morning, Trump argued his summit with Putin "was a great success".

The red-and-white soccer ball tossed to President Donald Trump by Russia's Vladimir Putin is undergoing a routine security screening.

Since he refused to back the U.S. intelligence community's assessment of Russian interference in 2016, Trump has alternated between trying to quell the political uproar he ignited and seeking to avoid backing down from his handling of the summit.

But then he appears to change his mind, telling reporters "we're doing very well" and that "there's been no president ever as tough as I have been on Russian Federation".

"This issue (of a referendum) was discussed", Antonov said, adding that Putin made "concrete proposals" to Trump on solutions for the four-year, Russian-backed insurgency in eastern Ukraine, which has killed more than 10,000 people.

He tweeted Monday as criticism of his comments started to emerge, stating his confidence in U.S. intelligence, but also pushed the necessity for a close working relationship with Russian Federation. That resolution had the support of Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake.

Coats said Thursday he wished the president hadn't undermined the conclusions of American intelligence agencies while standing next to Putin and felt it was his duty to correct the record.

Trump was criticised and quickly retracted a statement earlier this week after he seemed to accept Mr Putin's denial of hacking in their Finland meeting. Putin made similar claims at the time.

He last visited the White House in 2005, when he met President George W. Bush, who welcomed the Russian leader in the East Room as "my friend". Trump said. The idea landed with a thud among officials back in the US.

One official, asked if the reaction to Helsinki would be a more organized process, said this is often how the White House operates. He just said it's not Russian Federation.
