White House pushes follow-up Donald Trump - Vladimir Putin meeting to next year

It was, after all, given to the president by the leader of Russian Federation, a country who is no stranger to all sorts of hacking - including the 2016 USA election. Putin already had sent signals that he wasn't interested in coming to Washington.

National Security Adviser John Bolton said Trump wants to wait until after Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into the Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election is completed.

At the joint press conference in Helsinki with Putin last week, the Russian president said Trump "continued to maintain that it was illegal to annex it".

Earlier this month when Russian President Vladimir Putin tossed a soccer ball over to President Trump during a controversial press conference following their meeting in Helsinki, Finland, many political pundits on both sides of the aisle half-jokingly suggested that Trump better check the ball to see if it's bugged.

Even in the case that Trump would want a quick follow-up, Ushakov suggested that Putin and Trump could meet on the sidelines of the upcoming G-20 meet in Argentina. The US president seemed quite thrilled to receive the gift and said: "That's very nice". "I think it would be wise to let the dust settle and then we can discuss all these questions in a business-like way".

The White House continues to deal with backlash over the news conference, including Trump's apparent acceptance of Putin's denial that Russian Federation had meddled in the election.

"I notice that you are not responding to what I am saying", Corker said.

Later, he and Pompeo had an intense exchange when Corker suggested that Trump intentionally creates distrust in institutions like North Atlantic Treaty Organisation.

Corker accused Pompeo of sidestepping questions after asking what motivated the president to "purposefully create distrust" in US institutions and allies.

Tennessee Senator Bob Corker not only presided over Wednesday's three hour grilling of Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, but led the intense questioning President Trump's foreign policy leader endured yesterday.

In prepared remarks, Pompeo said the USA goal in dealing with Moscow is "to steadily raise the costs of aggression until Vladimir Putin chooses a less confrontational foreign policy, while keeping the door open for dialogue in our national interest".

His testimony before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee included a vigorous defense of Trump's policies. "These are two nuclear superpowers".

The US and its European allies have all said the referendum was illegal as it was held without the consent of the government in Kiev and was conducted in a highly flawed manner.

Sen. Chris Coons, D-Del., who sits on the Foreign Affairs Committee and who co-sponsored a resolution last week condemning Russian Federation for interfering in the 2016 election, said he hoped any future meeting would be moved outside the United States. "Because he talked about bringing the US-Russia relationship back to normal".
