Under secretary of defense defends Putin invite to DC

German Chancellor Angela Merkel thinks it's a good idea for U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to meet again this year in Washington, D.C. He wrote about this on his Twitter page.

He tweeted Thursday the Russian Federation summit was a huge success except with the "Fake News Media", who he called "the real enemy of the people". "They used to call Reagan the great communicator, but Trump has outpaced him for sure".

This "clarification" didn't address other remarks in which Trump criticised the United States as "foolish" for its approach to Russian Federation and said "I have confidence in both parties". Trump said. "I want to know where is the server and what is the server saying?"

Coats also revealed in the interview with NBC's Andrea Mitchell that he was unaware of what transpired in the private meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki, and restated without equivocation his belief that Russian Federation continues to pose a threat to the American electoral system.

Russia's Interfax news agency reported that Putin also made proposals to Trump involving eastern Ukraine, citing Russia's ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov.

"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.

Secretary of State Mike Pompeo had a sunnier view of the likely second get-together.

President Donald Trump gestures while speaking during his meeting with members of his cabinet in Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington, Wednesday. "It's important to the world that at the right time through a voluntary mechanism these refugees are able to return to their home country, ' he said".

The day after, Trump was back in Washington and said he does accept the intelligence community's conclusion, but added: "It could be other people also - there's a lot of people out there".

"I think that's an incredible offer. OK?" "So, certainly as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible, yes".

More often, however, Trump goes outside the building when seeking advice, this former staffer said. No Russian leader has visited the White House in almost a decade. Russia's Foreign Ministry said the call was initiated by the American side.

Though Trump has long signified a desire to have a strong relationship with Putin and often complimented the Russian leader, his administration has maintained support for Ukraine in its fight against the Russian-leaning separatists in the Donbass region.

"Who do you believe?", Lemire had asked, referring to Trump's well established disbelief in the US intelligence community's ironclad conclusions about Russia's efforts to subvert America's democracy.

A White House National Security Council spokesman said later the United States on Friday rejected a proposal from Russian Federation for a referendum to decide the fate of eastern Ukraine.
