Trump says looks forward to second Putin meeting

Trump says looks forward to second Putin meeting

Russia's official assessment of Trump's high-stakes summit with Putin is carefully upbeat.

Asked if he had thought about resigning, Coats said simply: "That's a place I don't really go to publicly".

Ms Sanders said the proposal was "made in sincerity" by the Russian president but Mr Trump "disagrees with it".

What reaction is there to the planned Putin visit?

Trump's Director of National Intelligence, Dan Coats, was unaware of the president's plans to invite Putin to the White House until he was notified while on stage at the Aspen Security Forum conference.

He laughed and said: "That's going to be special".

Coats said he was just doing his job when he quickly issued a statement Monday after the president appeared to give credence to Russia's denial of election interference. "We are ready for discussions on this subject".

Liverpool have made a new bid of € 75m (£66.9m) for Alisson and are close to sealing a world-record deal for the Roma goalkeeper. Alisson is also coming off of a fine season with Roma, keeping 17 clean sheets as his side finished 3rd in Serie A.


During the panel, Coats said he was still not sure what was discussed at Trump and Putin's one-on-one meeting in Helsinki. "In the United States, in Russian Federation, or anywhere else". "The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media".

Trump has faced widespread domestic criticism in recent days following the summit in the Finnish capital Helsinki on Monday, most notably over an initial refusal to blame Russian Federation for meddling in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Trump also accused the news media of trying to provoke a confrontation with Moscow that could lead to war, although concerns about the meeting have been raised by a broad cross-section of Republicans and Democrats.

Russian President Vladimir Putin accused "powerful" forces within the United States of trying to sabotage ties between Moscow and Washington in the wake of a controversial summit with U.S. counterpart Donald Trump.

The idea of allowing a foreign power to quiz US citizens sparked outrage and the US Senate voted 98-0 against it. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said it was "not going to happen".

"Hopefully President Putin will have the 12 identified Russians come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt", said Sanders.

The Democratic resolution, S.Res. 584, says, "It is the sense of Congress that the United States should refuse to make available any current or former diplomat, civil servant, political appointee, law enforcement official, or member of the Armed Forces of the United States for questioning by the government of Vladimir Putin".

Coats looked briefly stunned on stage when NBC's Andrea Mitchell asked him about the invitation.

The Americans in question include former U.S. ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul and alleged crimes include fraud and corruption.

In the latest, on Thursday, the White House had to distance itself from what he had described as an "incredible offer" made by the Russian president.

"Nobody else did what I have done", Trump added.

The announcement comes days after President Donald Trump faced a bipartisan backlash for his widely criticized comments immediately following his first meeting with the Russian leader.

Hours after Trump had equated his own intelligence community's long-held assessment that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election and Putin's denial thereof, Coats issued a statement reasserting the US government's position. On Wednesday, he said he would hold Putin personally responsible for interfering in the election.

Trump has been criticised by many for his close ties to the Russian leader amid accusations of Russian meddling in American politics.
