Donald Trump invites Vladimir Putin to U.S. despite uproar after Helsinki meeting

Donald Trump invites Vladimir Putin to U.S. despite uproar after Helsinki meeting

Trump also congratulated Putin on his suspect re-election victory, despite explicit instructions from his advisers.

The two leaders held a summit in Finland on Monday but few details of what they discussed have emerged. He said Russian diplomats will work with American counterparts to "fulfill the agreements reached". "We are doing MUCH better than any other country!" Trump also told his followers that the Helsinki meeting was a success, except for "the real enemy of the people, the Fake News media".

On Thursday, NBC News also reported that former director of US national intelligence, James Clapper, who was reportedly in the briefing, confirmed that evidence of Putin's involvement of the election was shown to Trump.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., acknowledged Thursday that Trump has had a "bad week" on Russian Federation.

"There's never been a president as tough on Russian Federation as I have been", Trump told reporters on Wednesday. "I don't think he was prepared as well as he should have been". She said at the Aspen Forum that Russian Federation is attempting to "cause chaos on both sides".

This week saw Trump's first summit with Putin since the election.

He defended the decision to charge foreign nationals who are unlikely to be deported to the US.

President Trump is being increasingly vocal about his annoyance at this resistance to his diplomatic overtures, despite avoiding a war with Russian Federation seemingly being an obvious part of long-term U.S. strategic interests.

On Wednesday, Trump answered "no" to a reporter's question on whether Russian Federation was still targeting the United States, only to have Sanders say later he was saying "no" to answering any questions - not to the question itself.

Trump's remarks during a joint press conference with Putin on Monday were widely condemned by both political parties.

Trump has refined and sharpened his presentation since Helsinki.

Coats was asked if there is a risk that nerve agent poisonings in Britain that have been blamed on the Russians are possible in the United States. "President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today".

"Somehow many Americans have forgotten that Russian Federation is our adversary, not our ally, and the reasons for today's tensions go back much farther than the 2016 election", he writes.

President Putin reacted aggressively to questions from USA reporters from the new agencies Reuters and the Associated Press.

The muddied waters have deepened critics' concerns that Trump is not taking threats to the USA electoral system seriously enough. "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". In exchange, Putin wants Russian interviews of Americans accused by the Kremlin of unspecified crimes.

As CBS News has previously reported, Mr. Trump said he wanted them withdrawn within six months.

Coats was speaking to moderator Andrea Mitchell, who noted that not only did Trump side with Russian President Vladimir Putin despite numerous well-substantiated assessments from USA intelligence, he went so far as to call out Coats by name.

Sanders called the legislation "hypothetical" and declined to say whether the president would back it.

It restated the US intelligence community's assessment that Moscow did extensively interfere, and continues to interfere. A similar House vote Tuesday failed on a party-line vote.
