Trump, Putin Discussed 'Concrete Proposals' On Ukraine, Envoy Says

U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats seemed to have been in the dark about Russian President Vladimir Putin's White House invitation.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said John Bolton would be making the invitation following Mr Trump's meeting with the Russian president earlier this week in Finland.

That next meeting may be at the White House.

"Obama didn't do it", Trump told CNBC in an interview at the White House. He said he wished Trump hadn't met alone with the Russian leader-and hadn't questioned intelligence agencies' conclusions on Russian election interference.

In return, Mr Putin wanted permission for Russian Federation to interview Americans the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes.

She said the US hopes Mr Putin will have the Russians indicted on charges brought by the US Department of Justice "come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt". Over the course of the interview, he rather diplomatically made it obvious he was not happy with President Trump's conduct alongside Putin at their summit in Helsinki.

"That's going to be special", he added, prompting laughter from the audience.

In a possible dig at Trump's unpredictable presidency, Putin vaunted Russia's "consistent, responsible, independent foreign policy".

"Then we would expect that the Americans would reciprocate and they would question officials, including the officers of law enforcement and intelligence services of the United States. who have something to do with illegal actions on the territory of Russian Federation, and we have to request the presence of our law enforcement".

The top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, Adam Schiff of California, formally requested Thursday that the committee issue a subpoena for Gross to testify, but he was overruled by Republicans who hold the majority in the House.

Waziri added that the sarcophagus is unusual for its size; it's the largest to ever be discovered in Alexandria . Before the sarcophagus was opened , some had hoped that the remains of Alexander The Great might be inside it.

Trump's public doubting of Russia's responsibility in a joint news conference with Putin on Monday provoked withering criticism from Democrats and Republicans alike and forced the president to make a rare public admission of error. "We are all for the dialogue to be continuous and for the leaders meeting not from occasion to occasion but regularly, in order to better understand the issues and to resolve them", Antonov said.

"I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed", he wrote.

The president was boosted on Friday by his secretary of state, who presented himself in lockstep Trump on a second summit - this one in Washington -- with Putin this fall.

Mr Trump may have been encouraged by recent opinion polling showing that while the public at large is uneasy with Mr Trump's Russian Federation policies, his Republican base - by a sizeable majority - is fine with his performance. Both Trump and Putin have declared the meeting a grand success that is soon to reap great rewards in numerous geopolitical realms, yet even the most complete accounting of the talks - one provided by Putin - suggests that any outcomes are far from certain.

"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.

"The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media", Trump wrote on Twitter.

American intelligence agencies concluded previous year that Russian Federation carried out a campaign of hacking and propaganda targeting the 2016 US election, seeking to sow discord and disparage Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. She said Mr. Trump's "frightened fawning over Putin is an embarrassment and a grave threat to our democracy".

The Kremlin has the final say, but hasn't responded yet to the proposal Mr. Trump made Thursday.

However, neither Trump nor the White House has confirmed any agreements between the two countries.

This is not the first time the magazine has depicted Trump on the cover.
