Trump says looks forward to second Putin meeting

White House spokesperson Sarah Sanders

Then on Thursday, the White House said he "disagrees" with Mr Putin's offer to allow U.S. questioning of 12 Russians who have been indicted for election interference in exchange for Russian interviews with the former USA ambassador to Russia and other Americans the Kremlin accuses of unspecified crimes.

"Hopefully President Putin will have the 12 identified Russians come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt", said Sanders.

Republicans and Democrats both accused him of siding with an adversary rather than his own country after he shied away from criticizing the Russian leader for what US intelligence agencies say were Moscow's efforts to undermine the 2016 election. Answering questions from reporters, Trump stopped short of condemning Russia's meddling in the 2016 United States election and appeared to take Putin's denial at face value. "Just like I consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in this country", Trump said to CBS News.

For their part, the Ukrainian government said on Wednesday that it regards Putin's endorsement of the Crimean referendum as tantamount to the Russian leader confessing to a crime.

Coats's remarks reportedly ruffled feathers in the White House.

But sanctions legislation can be notoriously complicated to write, and the broad scope of the measure - which would snap stiff sanctions on Russia's banking and energy sectors if the director of national intelligence found evidence of interference in the 2018 election - could have spillover effects that would hit United States businesses. "In the United States, in Russian Federation, or anywhere else", he said in a statement.

Konstantin Kosachev, head of the upper house of parliament's foreign affairs committee, said the idea sets a risky precedent that threats the "the whole idea of diplomacy", according to Russian news agencies.

He said it was "the president's prerogative" to keep his discussions with Putin to himself.

"The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why I wouldn't, or why it wouldn't be Russian Federation'".

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

Trump clapped back at his critics and said he was "far tougher on Russia" than his predecessors.

At the news conference with Putin, he was asked if he would denounce what happened in 2016 and warn Putin never to do it again, and he did not directly answer.

Then, after she repeated it, Coats said, "That's going to be special". An animated version online shows President Trump fully transforming into Putin in about 15 seconds. And as the days pass and Trump's comments about Monday's summit become more and more contradictory, Moscow appears to be quietly losing hope for a thaw in Russian-U.S. ties under Trump.

Russian Federation was also seeking to interview Michael McFaul, another Putin critic who was USA ambassador to Moscow under President Obama.

Putin doesn't blame Trump for that. One staffer reportedly said, "Coats has gone Rogue".

"The reason that the Russians are probably leaking this information is because they don't want a nuclear war either", Stone said on July 27, 2016.

"It is connected to his ability to fulfil these agreements, which, to my mind, is artificially restricted by the U.S. Congress and some U.S. agencies, let alone intelligence services", Kosachev added.

"And so, make no mistake about it, we are very clear with our adversaries, when it's in our best interest, to share with them what we're doing", he said.
