Mueller's report concluded that the Russian government interfered in the 2016 presidential election "in sweeping and systematic fashion". Mr. Trump eventually had to clarify that he did indeed agree with his intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation intervened, but Trump critics insist he hasn't been forceful enough on the topic.

Sanders told reporters Friday that Mr. Trump and Putin also discussed nuclear agreements, the possibility of including China in a counter-nuclear agreement, the need for North Korea to denuclearize, and the importance of getting supplies through to the suffering people of Venezuela.
