  • Trump under fire after Putin meeting

Media citing anonymous Russian sources on Friday reported that Putin had allegedly proposed to Trump during their meeting that a referendum be held to help resolve the conflict in Eastern Ukraine, and that Trump had asked Putin not to bring up the referendum at the press conference to follow. His ultimate goal? To dominate his neighborhood again, she said, as well as build a foothold in the Middle East and break up Western partnerships, from North Atlantic Treaty Organisation to the European Union, and to "undo the architecture of the post-World War II world".

(They told him afterwards that any journalist would have asked the same question at that point in the press conference.) Over the next few days, Trump then attempted a stunningly bad walk back, called the media the "real enemy" of the American people, and came up with some creative ways to double down and deliberately extend the whole mess. She said Trump was saying "no" to answering additional questions - although that didn't appear to be the case because he elaborated on Russian Federation. "I actually think we'll have a good relationship".

USA 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. "We are still very vulnerable and we don't have leadership from the administration".

A White House National Security Council spokesman said later the United States on Friday rejected a proposal from Russian Federation for a referendum to decide the fate of eastern Ukraine. If that meeting takes place in Washington, I think it is all to the good.

"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, and nuclear".

Numerous politicians have criticised Mr Trump for his post-summit statements raising doubts about Russia's interference in the 2016 United States elections, and past and current intelligence community officials also differed with many of his statements.

His response, in his own words, was "awkward". "He waxed on about his impressions of Putin up close - strong, smart and cunning, in Trump's assessment - and told associates that he viewed the Russian as a formidable adversary with whom he relishes interactions". Some in the president's circle saw parallels in the response to that incident, when the president walked back his August comments critical of "both sides" for protests in the Virginia city, only to later revert to his initial position - that both white supremacists and their detractors shared blame for the violence.

A White House spokeswoman, Lindsay Walters, wanted to make clear that the president "respects the independence of the Fed". "Tightening now hurts all that we have done", Trump tweeted. What happened to Hillary Clinton's emails?

The notion of a $400 million donation to the Democrat's campaign would be out of the question.
