Russian Federation says Putin, Trump discussed referendum in Ukraine

There was further confusion after the White House said Mr Trump "disagrees" with Mr Putin's offer to allow USA questioning of 12 Russians accused of election meddling in exchange for Russian interviews with the former U.S. ambassador to Russia and other Americans the Kremlin has linked to unspecified crimes.

"Say that again", national intelligence director Dan Coats responded, when informed of the invitation during an appearance at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado.

"I think as time goes by and the President has already mentioned some things that happened in that meeting, I think we will learn more".

Via Twitter, the president declared that "The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media".

A White House official says Friday that those issues include Russian meddling, nuclear proliferation, North Korea, Iran and Syria.

Sanders on Thursday said, "It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it", a day after saying the proposal was going to be discussed by Trump's team.

"We want very much to have a strong Russian Federation because a strong, competent, prosperous, stable Russian Federation is we think in the interest of the world", Clinton can be heard saying in the video.

To Americans back home, particularly the opponents of Trump, the press conference gave them more fodder to criticize the USA president.

"At this stage, when we see that our leaders don't meet that often, we are of course in favor of continuing this dialogue so that it is ongoing, that our leaders meet not just occasionally, but regularly, so they would know and understand each other better".

"There were suggestions, comments, thoughts by President Putin with respect to that inquiry".

Trump initially had described the idea as an "incredible offer".

With the fallout from the Putin meeting matching or eclipsing previous controversies in Trump's turbulent 18-month presidency, critics of his performance in Helsinki included many fellow Republicans.

On Thursday, the White House announced the two leaders would meet again in the fall, around the time of the congressional midterm elections the United States intelligence community says Russian Federation is trying to meddle in.

Since the summit, the White House has been engulfed in crisis after crisis as Trump dug himself into a deeper hole vis-a-vis Russian Federation even after arriving back in the US.

The Russian ambassador said Moscow is ready to discuss a proposed new meeting between Putin and Trump, Interfax said.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said that meeting may come this fall. "Somehow America seems to forget the history of Russia's efforts to undermine western democracy for decades now", Pompeo said. The specifics of what exactly was discussed during the two hour meeting between the world leaders remain uncertain, but Russia's ambassador to the United States told reporters "important verbal agreements" were made, according to The Washington Post.
