"So ask yourself, why would Putin be trying to get Donald Trump elected president?"

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) called President Trump's invitation to Russian President Vladimir Putin to meet at the White House "beyond belief" in a statement Friday.

"This thing happening in the U.S. with now is some sort of a farce, some sort of comedy", he said.

He said: "The summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the fake news media".

Clinton questioned why Trump did not confront Putin over Russia's election interference. "I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, including stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more".

US prosecutors have accused Maria Butina of working to infiltrate political organizations, including the National Rifle Association, before and after Donald Trump's election as president in 2016.

The president was asked what he said to Putin, and he replied that he was "very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling". I have President Putin - he just said it's not Russian Federation.

There are hopes inside the administration that the next summit will be more traditional, with US and Russian negotiators meeting ahead of time to set up an agenda and try to reach agreement on some issues.

He also spoke about the new plans, created to pre-empt cyber attacks against the United States at an early stage. Almost all f those efforts have been described in cases brought by Mueller and the Justice Department this year.


USA prosecutors say Maria Butina, 29, exploited her close links with the powerful NRA gun lobby while posing as a visiting graduate student to endear herself with senior Republicans, guided by one of Russian President Vladimir Putin's major political supporters, Alexander Torshin.

"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. She added: "I think in the totality, the president, in terms of his policy, has been incredibly hard on Russian Federation".

"The president is wrong", GOP Sen.

Only one other American, State Department translator Marina Gross, was in the room with the American and Russian presidents, and the White House has offered few details about what was discussed. Told that Sanders had since clarified, she responded: "There's a walk-back of the walk-back of the walk-back of the walk-back?"

"The president's views on interest rates are well-known, and his comments today are a reiteration of those long held positions, and public comments", Walters said in a statement.

"The United States should not be penalized because we are doing so well".

The notion of a $400 million donation to the Democrat's campaign would be out of the question. She highlighted economic sanctions put in place by the Trump administration that have hurt both the Russian economy and Putin's approval ratings.
