Trump’s failure at Putin summit will come back to haunt him

I think the European Union is a foe, what they do to us in trade.

PIFER: Genuine improvement in U.S.

Trump, who arrived at the White House after his week-long trip to Europe, has defended his comments.

Indian American Congressman Raja Krishnamoorthi said Trump failed to confront Putin on Russian interference in USA elections and placed more trust in the Russian dictator's denials than in the assessments of United States intelligence. Asked if Russian Federation was at all to blame for the poor ties, he said: "I hold both countries responsible".

In some of the harshest criticism yet from members of Trump's party, the veteran lawmaker - a strong critic of the president - said the Helsinki summit was a "tragic mistake" in which Trump was "not only unable, but unwilling to stand up to Putin".

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, a Republican and a Trump appointee, responded to Trump's remarks and stood by the USA agencies.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, a fellow Republican, was openly critical of the president's assessment of Russia's conduct: "There is no question that Russian Federation interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world". They'll conclude the summit by taking questions at a joint news conference.

Trump was also under pressure from Britain to press Putin over the nerve agent poisoning of four people in southern England.

Russian President Vladimir Putin's limousine (above) and US President Donald Trump's "Beast" limousine. Lisa Murkowski says Trump "ultimately validated Putin at the expense of American intelligence by giving credence to Putin's claim to have not interfered in our elections". "However, I also recognise that in order to build a brighter future, we can not exclusively focus on the past - as the world's two largest nuclear powers, we must get along!"

Some at Fox seized on tweeted criticism by former Central Intelligence Agency director John Brennan, who said Trump's performance was near treasonous.

In general, the Russian leader said, the talks with Mr Trump took place in an "open and businesslike atmosphere" and he characterised them as "successful and useful".

President Putin and President Trump attend a meeting in Helsinki on July 16, 2018.

2 die in France during World Cup celebrations
Waving French flags and chanting "We are the champions", supporters united in a party atmosphere throughout the night. Hundreds of guests, including people from soccer clubs connected to the French players, were invited.

Putin pointed out that USA presidents and Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. have been assassinated on American soil. Fox will have a key role in the leaders' attempt to spin the summit, since Trump is being interviewed by both Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson on Monday night, and Putin has sat down with Chris Wallace.

Chuck Hagel, a former senator and defense secretary, said that Trump "failed America" in the press conference. It gave no further details.

While acknowledging there were still challenges ahead in improving relations between the two countries Putin said he was was "glad" at the outcome of Monday's talks.

At the news conference, Trump was invited by reporters to offer any criticism of Russian Federation, but he repeatedly declined.

And so, yes, I think we have elevated this Russian Federation thing to a degree that we are simply deranged by it.

Steven Pifer, a non-resident senior fellow with the Brookings Institution and a former State Department official focused on USA relations with the former Soviet Union, spoke with Reuters editor Helen Coster about the summit. On Monday, officials said another Russian agent had been arrested for seeking to influence United States politics.

Trump's warm words for Russian Federation were a marked contrast from the past week, when he repeatedly rebuked long-standing US allies at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit and during a visit to Britain.

But, insisting he had won the race fair and square, the wealthy property tycoon said: "I have President Putin, he just said it is not Russian Federation".

The pair had held lengthy talks before - on the sidelines of world leader meetings in Germany and Vietnam past year - but this was their first official summit and was being watched closely, especially following the announcement Friday of new indictments against 12 Russian intelligence officers accused of hacking Democratic emails to help Trump's campaign.

Putin did not answer a question on whether he has collected compromising personal material on Trump and his family.

The summit, which was controversial to begin with, came just three days after Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein indicted 12 Russian nationals for conspiring to interfere in the 2016 presidential election - including the hackings of the Democratic National Committee, Hillary Clinton campaign employee's emails and state election systems.
