Pelosi and Schumer: What Does Putin Have on Trump? - Cortney O'Brien

They did not shake hands at the outset of their public remarks.

Where has the Trump administration prioritized Russian interests ahead of American interests? He declared, "The time has come to talk in a substantive way". Trump was widely criticised, including by former CIA Director John Brennan, for meeting with Putin alone.

Trump has vehemently denied anyone in his orbit colluded with the Russians.

The press conference occurred after Putin and Trump held a meeting in which they were joined only by translators.

Trump hailed the summit as being a successful in terms of dialogue and communication between the two nations, despite rising tensions over the last few months.

For the president, it's likely to add another to his list of grievances about a network he has denounced as "fake news". Did Trump say that the US would halt those exercises the way he agreed to halt exercises with South Korea when he met with Kim Jong Un last month?

Trump tweeted early in the day that U.S. -Russia relations were being soured by many years of U.S. "foolishness" and that the rigged "With Hunt" was partly to blame.

"We have offered [the US] to consider building the philosophy of bilateral relations for the long term", Putin said.

"The agenda should be I think, number one, that we should let Vladimir Putin - the president, and his team should let Vladimir Putin know, 'If you want a better relationship, if you want, for example, sanctions to be lifted, it's going to be up to you, '" Sullivan said. This year, Russian Federation hosted the quadrennial soccer tournament, which France won on Sunday. "There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russian Federation, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals". "They were really spectacular games, but it was beautifully done, so congratulations on that".

Was Russia listening? Democrat hack followed Trump speech
The indicted Russians have also been accused of hacking into the software used by computer companies that run the USA elections. The claims were "an old duck" and a "heap of conspiracy schemes", said Moscow's foreign ministry in a statement .

Trump went on to express his hope the pair would "end up having an extraordinary relationship".

Finnish police said Husseini was removed from the room at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki and detained for interrupting the packed event, which was being covered live.

Helsingin Sanomat, Finland's biggest daily newspaper, said Husseini allegedly shouted comments to United States journalists and disrupted the live broadcasts they were doing while awaiting Putin and Trump.

Democrats across the board slammed Trump for his comments in Helsinki.

Both presidents expressed their gratitude to the host country, Finland, and the city of Helsinki.

"I think his base feels that it would have been rude and not productive to stand not six feet away from the president of Russian Federation and call him a liar", said Republican strategist Barry Bennett, a former Trump campaign adviser. With the two men meeting as equals, Moscow was back on the world stage, shaping the agenda, a power player meeting with a friend and peer. We have 90 percent of the nuclear [weapons], and that's not a good thing.

"I will say this", Trump said. I think that we've all been foolish. It's a negative force.

"Please get this rubbish out of your heads", Putin added. As Trump concluded his remarks, the pair turned towards each other and shook hands.

Making note of some of the political reaction to the news conference, Fox news anchor Bret Baier said Trump probably caused himself a lot of problems with his answers.
