President Trump Sides With Putin At Historic Summit

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview broadcast on Monday that he told U.S. President Donald Trump that Russia is prepared to extend the New START nuclear treaty that expires in 2021.

"First of all, Russia, as a state, has never interfered with the internal affairs of the United States, let alone its elections", Putin said. "President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial". They say they are not in support of Putin and would like to see more democracy in Russian Federation.

The statement from Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, did not directly reference Trump's comments at a news conference alongside Putin in Helsinki.

The White House has struggled to explain why Trump aligned so closely with Putin, and lawmakers in both major parties appeared shocked and dismayed with his suggestion that he believes Putin's denial of interfering in the 2016 elections.

Congressional leaders expressed outrage with Trump's performance, which was viewed as a highly public failure to condemn Putin's incursion into the US electoral process. Sen.

Donald Trump's meeting Monday with Russian president Vladimir Putin was historic in all the wrong ways. "He offered to have the people working on the case come and work with their investigators with respect to the 12 people", Trump said.

Senator Susan Collins said Trump's "position is untenable", while Senate Intelligence Committee Chairman Richard Burr, also a Republican, outlined Russian aggression on several fronts and said the United States "will not tolerate hostile Russian activities against us or our allies".

Mr. Trump and Putin held a joint press conference Monday afternoon after meeting one-on-one in the Finnish capital.

The meeting came three days after the special counsel charged 12 Russian intelligence officers with election interference. "There is no credibility to Putin's denials especially in light of the public evidence and our own US intelligence reports", Faso said.

Asked whether he had wanted Mr Trump to win the 2016 election and had instructed officials to help him, Mr Putin said "Yes I did", although he denied any interference, saying the allegations were "complete nonsense".

Relations between the United States and Russian Federation deteriorated rapidly when Russian Federation invaded Crimea a few years ago.
