Rubio: Trump Can't Reach for 'Win-Win' When Putin Wants 'Zero-Sum'

'An absolute disgrace': Republicans blast Trump for his 'disgusting' press conference with Putin

Some lawmakers had also called on Trump to reiterate the USA position opposing Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea.

Added NBC's Hallie Jackson: "I think a fair word would be extraordinary. The president lays himself at Vladimir Putin's feet".

"Diplomacy and engagement are better than hostility", Trump said.

Trump has been reluctant to criticise Putin over the years and has described him in recent days not as an enemy but as a competitor.

Putin proposed that same plan after they met at a Group of Seven summit in Germany a year ago. The summit also started almost an hour late.

President Trump later tweeted to say that he has "great confidence" in his intelligence agencies.

Hua made the remarks at a press conference, commenting on the first official face-to-face meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

From aboard Air Force One, Trump complained in tweets that he was not getting enough credit for his meeting with Kim and railed that "Much of our news media is indeed the enemy of the people" as he headed to sit down with Putin.

"We haven't seen an American so owned by a Russian since Rocky IV". And Trump continues to reject Mueller's probe as a "witch hunt", despite the indictments of Russian hackers and intelligence officials.

Al Jazeera's Kimberly Halkett, reporting from Washington DC, said there was "nearly universal" criticism of Trump's actions in Helsinki.

Israel Cuts Off Gas Supply to Gaza
Israel has stepped up it strikes since then to signal its new threshold for engagement after months of largely refraining to act. Egypt has also maintained the blockade with Israel over the strip, in an attempt to weaken Hamas.

Following the one-on-one meeting, Trump and Putin began a larger meeting with other US and Russian officials, and will end the summit with a joint press conference.

"This was a very good day for President Putin", said Sen. They were meant to be seen by both world leaders as they traveled from the airport to the meeting.

The reason for Putin's delay was not clear.

Trump held a meeting with Putin on Monday and seemed to accept Putin's denial of Russia's intention to interfere in the US elections.

While many USA officials are blasting Trump's performance, Trudeau wouldn't comment, and instead repeated his condemnation of Putin and Russian Federation. And he seemed to endorse a plan Putin proposed that would allow the special counsel Robert Mueller's team to work with Russian investigators to question 12 Russians indicted last week. Those agents broke into Democratic Party email servers, stole tens of thousands of messages, and leaked them on Russian-controlled web sites. "But the journalists think it's all about them, which is what tells me that many of them, 'cause I think they still to this day get up every day hoping. this day is gonna be the day that whatever smoking gun evidence is out there is finally revealed that will allow them to get rid of Donald Trump".

Colbert responded to Putin's question saying, "Yeah".

"The West's attempts to isolate Russian Federation failed", read the headline on a report on Monday's summit meeting in state-run newspaper Rossiisskaya Gazeta. "We are puzzled with many aspects of these investigations in the part that concerns us and our country, but let's leave it behind the brackets".

Putin spoke to Fox shortly after a high-profile summit in which Trump blamed USA "foolishness" and "stupidity" for troubled U.S.

Trump's repeated warm words for Russian Federation were a marked contrast from the past week when he repeatedly rebuked traditional USA allies at a summit of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and a visit to Britain. Although Finland is not a member of the alliance, it does cooperate on peacekeeping, training and security missions. His proposal to trade access to Russians accused of hacking in return for Russian investigators engaging in investigations of Kremlin critics was "an incredible offer", according to Trump. "It's a shame that there could even be a little bit of a cloud over it".
