Senators plan to resurrect resolution backing intelligence community on Russian Federation

President Donald Trump pursued a blame-the-media strategy as he faced a bipartisan backlash over his handling of the summit in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin

Russian President Vladimir Putin says his first summit with U.S. President Donald Trump was "successful" and is accusing Trump's opponents in the U.S. of hampering any progress on the issues they discussed.

Coats has made clear that American intelligence agencies stand by their assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 USA election, even as Trump has sent conflicting signals, most significantly when he appeared to accept Russian President Vladimir Putin's denials over the assessments of US spy agencies.

President Trump has invited President Putin to visit the USA in the autumn, his press secretary Sarah Sanders said as she tweeted that discussions for the visit were already under way.

"Getting along with President Putin, getting along with Russia, is positive, not a negative", Trump noted, adding that if US-Russia relations are a flop, "I'll be the worst enemy [Putin's] ever had".

"There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems ... but they can ALL be solved!"

Trump, who has struggled to quiet a political uproar over his failure at Monday's summit in Helsinki to confront Putin over Russia's meddling in the 2016 USA election, renewed his fierce criticism of one of his favourite targets, the news media.

The New York Times later reported, and the former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper confirmed to CNN, that Trump was briefed on specific U.S. intelligence indicating that Putin personally ordered the 2016 Russian influence campaign.

The invitation would mark Putin's first visit to the United States since 2007, when he met with former President George W. Bush.

Trump said both he and Putin had spoken to Israel's Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu "and would like to do certain things with respect to Syria having to do with the safety of Israel".

Speaking to reporters after Saturday's match, Williams again praised her opponent's game, saying Kerber played "unbelievable". Her 10th Wimbledon final ended in disappointment though. "I just know going next time, I'll just be ready for that".

"OK. That's going to be special", he said, laughing.

The White House rejected on Friday a Vladimir Putin-backed effort to hold a referendum in eastern Ukraine on the region's future, distancing itself from the idea in the aftermath of President Donald Trump's controversial summit with the Russian leader.

"I don't know what happened", Coats added, when asked about Putin's meetings with Trump in Helsinki.

This ordeal was eclipsed Thursday by the announcement that Putin had been invited to the White House for a visit this fall.

Trump reportedly asked Putin not to announce the proposal at the summit's press conference in order to have time to consider it, according to one of the sources. But he said, "Russia was always open to such proposals".

Trump was condemned for telling a room full of journalists that he accepted Putin's denials of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. In a similar incident, Trump offered a simple "no" after being asked by a reporter if Russian Federation was "still targeting" the United States.

"I have great confidence that the Russians will try and undermine western democracy in 2017, 2018, 2019 and for an awfully long time", Pompeo said in an interview with Fox News.

Democrats in the House sought Thursday to extend a state grant program for election security but were blocked by Republicans.

Trump again criticized previous presidents for their handling of Putin's government, describing predecessor Barack Obama as a "patsy" for the Russians.
