President Trump: Putin made ‘incredible offer’ in Russian hacking case

Vladimir Putin makes Donald Trump wait for an hour to meet him in Helsinki

President Trump said Mr Putin had been "extremely strong and powerful in his denial" of any election meddling.

"I do feel that we have both made some mistakes", Trump said, referring to the United States and Russian Federation. Ryan said Russian Federation "remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals".

Other high-profile Republicans also expressed dismay.

"In order to build a brighter future, we can not exclusively focus on the past - as the world's two largest nuclear powers, we must get along!" "This is shameful", Flake tweeted.

Trump called that an "incredible offer".

Ailing Arizona Sen. John McCain, chairman of the Armed Services Committee, whom Trump has repeatedly mocked over his vote against killing Obamacare despite his ongoing battle with brain cancer, released a blistering statement.

He didn't mention a USA grand jury's indictments of 12 Russian intelligence agents on Friday or the Kremlin's interference in the 2016 US election. Trump plays with Putin's nipples before they comically and graphically make out.

Trump stunned a post-summit joint news conference with Putin in which he seemed to buy the Russian strongman's denials.

U.S. intelligence agencies concluded in 2016 that Russian Federation was behind an effort to tip the scale of the USA election against Hillary Clinton, with a state-authorised campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media.

Thomas continued, "Half of Great Britain seems to make a fortune selling pictures of my daughter and her husband". "It is probably the longest time I have gone without speaking to her ever", he said.

Putin will likely not be shooting for official recognition of Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea or the easing of crippling U.S. sanctions, aware that the U.S. Congress would never allow such action.

Trump doesn't want aides, who may take a harder line on Russian Federation, undercutting or interrupting him in his conversation with Putin. "I will say this: I don't see any reason why it would be".

Trump deflected responsibility for confronting Moscow, saying in tweets and interviews that former President Barack Obama had done nothing to prevent the hacks of Democratic email accounts or to punish the Russians afterward. John Brennan, who served as Central Intelligence Agency director between 2013 and January 2017, called the president's comments "treasonous".

Interested in Donald Trump?

Then Trump gave Putin a wink, a gesture that seemed to establish some level of warmth between the two leaders, which has been viewed with suspicion in the west. Republican Patriots: "Where are you???"

While Trump was eager for a made-for-TV moment that will dominate headlines like his sit-down with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un last month, Putin hopes the meeting, mere hours after he presided over the World Cup finals, will help him forge good personal ties with Trump and focus on areas where Moscow and Washington may be able to find common ground, such as Syria.

Clapper described Putin as an "arch enemy of the United States" who seeks to undermine its democracy and elections.

Trump immediately dodged, changing the topic without denouncing Russian Federation or even acknowledging any misconduct. Even Rep. Peter King (R-N.Y.), ordinarily a reliable defender of Trump, said he "strongly disagrees" with the president's take on Russian interference. "For the president of the United States to side with President Putin against American law enforcement, American defense officials, and American intelligence agencies is thoughtless, dangerous, and weak". The damage inflicted by President Trump's naiveté, egotism, false equivalence, and sympathy for autocrats is hard to calculate.
