Trump says looking forward to second meeting with Putin

President Trump praises Putin summit and eyes for second sitdown as he labels media 'real enemy of the people'

On July 16, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump had the first full-scale meeting in Helsinki.

Russia's ambassador to the US Anatoly Antonov said Friday that the two leaders had discussed the possibility of a referendum in separatist-leaning eastern Ukraine.

"Probably not the best thing to do", Coats said of that decision by Trump.

Marquis added that any effort to organize a "so-called referendum" would have "no legitimacy".

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a Twitter post that Trump had directed national security adviser John Bolton to issue the invitation, even though US lawmakers and top officials in Trump's administration have not been briefed on what Trump and Putin discussed in Monday's summit with only interpreters present.

The Russian president spoke about the proposal at a behind-closed-doors meeting with ambassadors and diplomats at the foreign ministry in Moscow on Thursday, Bloomberg reported, citing two people who attended the meeting.

Putin, who denied it, or the American intelligence consensus that says Russian Federation did, including Trump's national intelligence director Dan Coats. The official did not specify if that meant Russia's interference in USA elections.

The magazine said in a statement that the depiction "is meant to represent this particular moment in U.S. foreign policy, following the pair's recent meeting in Helsinki, Finland". "Those conversations are incredibly important".

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced Thursday on Twitter that Mr. Trump has asked national security adviser John Bolton to invite Putin to Washington this fall.

Trump has come under fire following the Helsinki talks for what many saw as his unsettling embrace of the Russian strongman - and his seeming disavowal of his own intelligence agencies and their assessment that Moscow meddled in the 2016 election.

No Russian leader has visited the White House in almost a decade.

Trump and Putin held two hours of closed-door talks with no one else present but the interpreters.

Russia is working to prop up the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, whose forces - with Russian military assistance - have targeted anti-regime rebels, killed more than half a million Syrians, and left millions homeless and millions more fleeing as refugees to Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon.


In Moscow, Putin said the summit " was successful overall and led to some useful agreements" without elaborating on the agreements.

He added, "We will see how things develop further", expressing concern about unnamed "forces" in the USA trying to prevent any improvement in relations, notably cooperation in the Syria war or arms control. "There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems.but they can ALL be solved!"

'Okay, ' Coats said with emphasis.

The Russian ambassador suggested a meeting between Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu and his USA counterpart, James Mattis, adding that a group of US lawmakers are also planning to visit Russia, according to Interfax. "We are ready for discussions on this subject".

"Look at the diplomats I threw out", Trump added, referring to the 60 diplomats expelled from the USA in March after the alleged poisoning of ex-double agent Sergei Skripal and his daughter in the UK.

"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".

Following the two leaders' press conference in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday, some pundits and Democratic lawmakers suggested that Trump was "treasonous" or a "traitor" for appearing to side with Putin, rather than with the USA intelligence community, on Russian meddling in the 2016 elections.

Trump had praised the proposal on Monday as an "incredible offer" and Sanders later described it as an "interesting idea" that was being discussed internally.

The White House and the State Department did not respond to a request for comment on the Syria proposals. It was Congress' first formal rebuke of Trump's actions from the summit and its aftermath.

Asked about the Putin invitation, Alaska Republican Sen.

'I say to our people also around the world ... "They should stop invading their neighbours".

While Trump and Putin had met privately on three occasions in 2017, Trump opened the door to a potential White House meeting with him earlier this year.

Putin was last invited to the White House in 2005 by then-president George W. Bush, while former Russian president Dmitry Medvedev visited in 2010.

Donald Trump has defended his meeting with Vladimir Putin.
