  • AFP | US President Donald Trump and Russia's President Vladimir Putin shake hands at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki

President Donald Trump, while standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin, refused to acknowledge what major US major intelligence agencies have been saying for more than a year: That Russian nationals, following orders from Putin, interfered in the 2016 election and carried out cyberattacks on American political figures. That's not a good thing that's a bad thing.

Trump took the ball and thanked Putin for the gift.

Earlier Monday, Trump blamed Mueller's investigation into Russia's campaign meddling for hurting relations between the countries.

In fact, Hayes said, Putin no longer worries that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation will do much to force Russian Federation to disgorge the Crimea region, which was legally part of Ukraine when the Soviet Union broke up, but is important to Russian Federation both for strategic and historical reasons.

U.S. Senator Bob Corker (R-TN) speaks with news media at the U.S. Capitol building in Washington, U.S., July 16, 2018.

He made no criticism of Russian Federation on any of the issues that have brought relations between the two powers to the lowest ebb since the Cold War. He's been thinking about this summit for months and months and months and looking at every different nuance and potential weakness of Trump.

Multiple members of Trump's own government and the entire US intelligence community have already concluded that Russian Federation did indeed attempt to sway the vote in Trump's favor.

Former Vice President Joe Biden, a Democrat, weighed in after the summit.

"Flattering dictators will not advance American interests".

"Many countries owe us a tremendous amount of money from many years back, where they're delinquent as far as I'm concerned, because the United States has had to pay for them".

The dossier was funded by the Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee and was circulated among Democrat-friendly news outlets during the 2016 election season.

USA intelligence agencies concluded in 2016 that Russian Federation was behind an effort to tip the scale of the U.S. election against Hillary Clinton, with a state-authorised campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media. Trump wrote on Twitter. Trump told reporters during a breakfast Monday with Finland's president that he thought the summit would go "fine".

"He just said it's not Russian Federation".

"The president must appreciate that Russian Federation is not our ally". "Whoever says we are foes is spreading fake news". Trump leaned forward in his chair, his hands tented in front of him and frequently glanced over at the Russian president. "America wants a good relationship with the Russian people but Vladimir Putin and his thugs are responsible for Soviet-style aggression", Sasse said in the statement.

"Coming close on the heels of President Trump's bombastic and erratic conduct towards our closest friends and allies in Brussels and Britain, today's press conference marks a recent low point in the history of the American presidency", McCain said.

After the glider appeared, Trump was seen cutting across the grass, quickly heading to the entrance of the resort.

The Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said separately that the talks were "better than super" in comments reported by Russian news agencies.

"For the president of the United States to side with President Putin against American law enforcement, American defense officials, and American intelligence agencies is thoughtless, dangerous, and weak", Schumer said.
