Putin promises Russian military 26 new ships and vessels in 2018

Putin promises Russian military 26 new ships and vessels in 2018

Russian President Vladimir Putin confirmed on Friday that he has invited his USA counterpart Donald Trump to Moscow for a second face-to-face meeting and that he was ready to come to Washington.

The United States is now arming Ukraine, said Portman, noting that he'd pushed both the Trump administration and former President Barack Obama's administration to do.

Regardless of what President Trump said - or meant to say - when he met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, the United States is now weaker.

Two reporters each from the USA and Russian press corps asked questions of Trump and Putin following their July 16 summit in Helsinki.

A White House reporter for CNN was disinvited from a Rose Garden photo opportunity Wednesday after having called out questions to President Trump in an earlier Oval Office meeting about former personal attorney Michael Cohen tape-recording him.

Trump, whose advisers have warned him Russian Federation continues its interference in the run-up to congressional elections in November, met with his national security aides on Friday to discuss election security.

"He just said it's not Russia", Trump said of the Russian leader after criticizing the FBI's investigation for not going after a and missing emails belonging to his opponent in the election, Hillary Clinton.

He cited special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian election meddling as the reason, using Trump's favorite term for the probe: "witch hunt". And Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee that despite Trump's public statements that allegations of Russian interference are "a hoax", he accepts the US intelligence community's conclusion that Russia did meddle in the 2016 election. She also asked about his invitation to Putin to visit Washington.

"As a member of the White House Press pool- @FoxNews stands firmly with @CNN on this issue and the issue of access", tweeted Bret Baier of Fox News.

"Collins was hauled into the principal's office, aka sat down in front of White House media wrangling chief/former Fox News bigwig Bill Shine", it wrote.




He escalated criticism of the Fed, saying the central bank is hurting US economic expansion by raising interest rates, making the dollar more expensive compared with Chinese and European currencies.

Interested in Donald Trump?

The political firestorm has featured prominent members from both parties sharply criticizing the president for his failure to hold Russia accountable for its malicious behavior and choosing the word of the Russian president over that of USA intelligence agencies regarding Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

"They said that the questions I asked were inappropriate for that venue".

USA officials have said Russian interfered in the 2016 election, and McConnell says he thinks the Russians will try again in 2018.

Since Helsinki, Mr Trump has tried to back-pedal on at least some of his comments.

JUST IN: White House releases statement on incident Wednesday with CNN correspondent.

"We leave to the American side, in this case, the interpretation of which agreements were reached and which were not reached", he said.

Ryan has said he did not speak to the president in the days after the Helsinki summit.

"In Washington, Trump would be surrounded by more aides, media, and the entire policy audience".
