The president's most recent comments about the press come after he was criticized by news editorial boards, lawmakers and others for appearing to accept Putin's "strong" and "powerful" denial on Russia's 2016 USA election meddling over the assessment of the American intelligence community.

US President Donald Trump's meeting with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin resulted in a "really good" outcome for Israel, the president told Fox News of the Helsinki Summit yesterday.

Amid the backlash, the president later said he misspoke when he cited Putin's "extremely strong and powerful" denial of Russian meddling - despite the conclusions by USA intelligence services.

"The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media", he tweeted. And what's interesting is President Trump, this morning, has just tweeted that he would like to meet President Putin a second time as an opportunity to implement the things that they discussed.

US prosecutors have offered mounting evidence concerning Russian election meddling.

Trump's remarks at a joint press conference with Putin on Monday were condemned by Democrats and Republican leaders.

President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin have become one.

In Moscow, Putin said the summit "was successful overall and led to some useful agreements" without elaborating on the agreements.

China's commerce minister Zhong Shan said that his country was ready to cooperate with the UAE to promote globalization. But Senegal, Rwanda and Mauritius were not among Chinese top partners in the continent.

"We will see how things develop further", Putin said, evoking those in the USA trying to prevent any improvement in relations and "putting narrow party interests above the national interest".

A Kinzhal-armed air squadron assumed combat duty in southern Russia in December and began patrolling the Caspian Sea in April, the Russian military has said. "He views this problem entirely through a political lens, these people say, unable or unwilling to differentiate between the question of whether his campaign colluded with Russia-which he denies-and the question of whether Russian Federation attempted to influence the election". Sanders' statement Thursday stands in contrast to her response in Wednesday's press briefing, when she would not rule out the possibility that the US could provide Russian Federation access to a group of Americans they have accused of being involved in a criminal plot. "What!?" Pelosi exclaimed incredulously in her weekly press conference on Capitol Hill.

The White House later said the U.S. president had been saying "no" to further questions from reporters and that the threat to the United States electoral system "still exists".

Netanyahu released a video commending "the abiding commitment of the USA and President Donald Trump to the security of Israel, as expressed at the meeting between President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin". "I have President Putin".

And while he later acknowledged in an interview with CBS News that Putin was responsible for the effort to undermine the election, he only attributed that responsibility to Putin being "in charge of the country". He said that these forces were sacrificing the betterment of U.S.

Asked how he deals with Trump's conflicting statements about Russia, Coats said: "This is the job I signed up for".

He added that he was "very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling" in his conversation behind closed doors in Helsinki with Putin. "There is just rule of Putin".

Votel stressed that US-Russian militaries do not coordinate in Syria and their interactions, while professional, were tightly restricted by US law.
