President Trump Sides With Putin At Historic Summit

The leaders touched on issues including tensions on the Korean peninsula and the situation in Syria during their first summit, Putin said at a joint press conference.

Mr Trump said: "Our relationship has never been worse than it is now".

Having denied Russian interference in the election and the possibility that the Russian government may have blackmail on Mr. Trump, Putin said that the USA and Russia are "starting to achieve some understanding" between each other.

Trump's appearance drew an avalanche of backlash from both parties in Washington, with some U.S. officials going so far as to condemn his remarks as "treasonous".

Sen. Orrin Hatch said he trusts the work of US intelligence and law enforcement personnel who are sworn to protect the country from foreign and domestic enemies. "We've all been foolish".

"I never thought I would see the day when our American President would stand on the stage with the Russian President and place blame on the United States for Russian aggression", tweeted Sen. "They never paid any taxes - neither in Russian Federation or the United States and yet the money escaped the country".

- Trump and Putin agreed there was no collusion.

The summit concluded Trump's tumultuous, week-long tour of the continent marked by disagreements with European leaders, divisions within North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, and anti-Trump protests in the United Kingdom.

Dan Coats, the director of national intelligence, has continually sounded the alarm that Russian Federation will look to also interfere with the USA midterm elections in 2018.

Rosenstein also risked angering Russian President Vladimir Putin by claiming his country's GRU - equivalent to the Central Intelligence Agency - then spread the stolen documents online.

Unsurprisingly, the summit's outcomes are seen in Russian Federation as triumphant.

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.

In fact, some political pundits in Russian Federation predicted the outcome.

But others with Utah ties blasted Trump after his meeting Monday with Putin in Helsinki.

Mr Trump, when asked about a Russian gas pipeline to Germany, noted that the United States and Russia compete in the energy market.

"Better than super", he said in televised remarks. From the context he meant incredible in the sense of great, rather than hardly credible.

He does not own a mobile phone, has a poker-face countenance, and values old friends and KGB colleagues who are now top government officials or billionaire oligarchs. "This is the message the President should deliver to Russia", Reichert said in an emailed statement.

Both leaders then shared a handshake in front of reporters, before heading off for their meeting.

Both consider independent media enemies and cut political Gordian knots with authoritarian, iron-fisted decisions.

Trump was also under pressure from Britain to press Putin over the nerve agent poisoning of four people in southern England.

"So, I'm sure by [Tuesday's] show, later [Monday], may even have a different take on this thing", Limbaugh said.

Rep. Justin Amash of MI tweeted that someone could be in favour of improved relations with Russian Federation and of Trump meeting Putin "and still think something is not right here".

FILE - U.S. Sen. "He was a rich person, but, well, there's plenty of rich persons in the United States".

Relations between Russian Federation and the West were severely strained by Moscow's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine in 2014 and Russia's support for separatists in eastern Ukraine. The jewel in the crown of Russian czars "returned to motherland" after a referendum, Putin proclaimed, and Russians were jubilant. US-Russia relations are uncertain.

Trump has been vague about Crimea.

"The world is not waiting for journalists to ask questions", Rush said. "When the President plays these moral equivalence games, he gives Putin a propaganda win he desperately needs".

"This legislation to punish Putin cronies for the murder of my lawyer and other human rights violations has really upset Vladimir Putin", he said. A US grand jury indicted the Russian agents on Friday for their alleged involvement in hacking email accounts controlled by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign, casting a shadow over the Helsinki summit. Bill Clinton lifted Moscow by inserting what then was a chaotic and bankrupt Russian Federation into Israel-Arab peacemaking, adding it as an equal member of a "peace quartet", alongside the European Union, the United Nations and the United States. But it wasn't unexpected.

I also believed and publicly commented on a recent bipartisan report from the Senate Intelligence Committee that declared the NSA/CIA/FBI assessment to be accurate and a "sound intelligence product".
