Protester dragged out of hall ahead of Trump-Putin conference

Ahead of Trump's meeting with Putin, both Republican and Democratic lawmakers had urged the US president to press for the extradition to the United States of the Russian agents.

Monday's session was condemned in advance by members of USA congress from both parties after the U.S. indictment last week of 12 Russian military intelligence officers accused of hacking Democrats in the 2016 election to help Mr Trump's presidential campaign.

Mr Trump also told ITV's Good Morning Britain that Mrs May should seek a "carve out" in any Brexit deal with the European Union which would allow the United Kingdom to secure a trade agreement with the US. "I think that the United States has now stepped forward along with Russia", Trump said, adding that he feels that the USA and Russia have "both made some mistakes".

Trump later said he misspoke and walked back his comments after a wave of Republican lawmakers voiced their concern. The summit also started almost an hour late.
