After Criticism, Trump Delays Second Meeting With Putin to Next Year

After Criticism, Trump Delays Second Meeting With Putin to Next Year

The announcement caused confusion and criticism, including from members of Trump's own party. "I know. I briefed him on it for over a year", said Pompeo, who served as Central Intelligence Agency director before Trump tapped him for the secretary of state job this spring. "Somehow there's this idea that this administration is free-floating. Make no mistake who's fully in charge of this".

"I want you to know that President Trump has stated that he accepts our intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election", Pompeo said.

Citing the 213 sanctions on Russian entities and individuals since the Trump administration assumed office, Pompeo said "with respect to Russia, this administration has been tougher than previous administrations, and I fully expect it will". The statement follows reports that Putin raised the issue of a referendum on Ukraine in his meeting with Trump last week.

The U.S. intelligence community concluded after the 2016 election that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election to hurt Hillary Clinton's campaign and help Trump win.

Following the summit in Helsinki, Finland last week, Trump asked Bolton to invite Putin to Washington "in the fall" of 2018.

Scott Schober, a cybersecurity expert, said in an interview that the technology would be unlikely to be used for espionage and that any gift a US President receives would be thoroughly vetted to ensure it is safe. Robert Menendez, the ranking Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee.

The law had drawn criticism by a wide range of NGOs and rights groups as a racist bill that would divide the society. And it says the government will encourage the creation of Jewish towns and communities.

Pompeo also testified on the status of negotiating North Korea's denuclearization, saying a great deal of work remains.

"Why does he do those things?" Now some fear Putin may have overplayed a winning hand and are bracing for a US sanctions backlash.

"It's the president's actions that create tremendous distrust in our nation, among our allies", Sen.

The Democratic opposition has launched withering attacks on Trump, demanding additional transparency and going so far as to haul the president's interpreter before Congress.

The US State Department said three "modest proposals" have emerged from the summit: a high-level business leaders' working group; a council of US and Russian political experts, diplomats and military officials; and discussions between the two presidents' national security staffs.

He said the US had not changed its policy on the Magnitsky Act, which Putin has railed against, or Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea.

The US administration stepped up its damage control operation and on Wednesday also delayed a second summit with the Kremlin chief until next year.

The criticism was so swift that Trump subsequently said he misspoke and that he believed Russian Federation had indeed interfered in the election.

Pompeo on Wednesday also defended Trump's performance in Singapore last month with Kim Jong Un, saying that "Americans are safer because of his actions" on North Korea, and his confrontational approach to USA allies at the recent NATO summit, telling the Senate panel that it was an example of the president pursuing "peace through strength".

At a rally in June, Maxine Waters also encouraged people to "push back" against Donald Trump's cabinet by confronting them in the event of a chance public encounter.

The US declaration came after the Russia's ambassador to Washington said Putin had made concrete proposals on resolving the conflict in eastern Ukraine to Trump at the Helsinki summit.

Mr. Putin had not formally accepted the invitation for a fall summit, and no hard date had been set.
