Republicans have criticized trump after his statements about Russian Federation

At the joint news conference in Helsinki, Finland, Trump said that while he has great confidence in the US intelligence community - which has stated clearly that Russian Federation interfered - he doesn't "see any reason why" Putin or his country would be at fault.

Russian President Vladimir Putin said in an interview broadcast on Monday that he told U.S. President Donald Trump that Russia is prepared to extend the New START nuclear treaty that expires in 2021.

Russian President Vladimir Putin says he wanted Donald Trump to win the US presidency, but strongly denied any Russian state meddling in the 2016 USA election.

Asked if he believed United States intelligence agencies, which concluded that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election to help him defeat Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, he said he was not convinced. "Instead, Trump - standing alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin - touted Putin's vigorous denial and pivoted to complaining about the Democratic National Committee's server and missing emails from Hillary Clinton's personal account". "But I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today", Trump said. "I think that the probe is a disaster for our country", Trump said, arguing that the investigation had harmed U.S. -Russia relations.

"There is general agreement in our intelligence community, really on both sides of the aisle, that there was major Russian interference with our elections, and he kind of shrugs it like well, Putin doesn't think that really happens", says Pingree.

Israeli troops shot dead a 15-year-old Palestinian who, the military claimed, had tried to climb over the fence into Israel. Last Friday, one person was killed and 57 were wounded by Israeli military fire in protests at the Gaza-Israel border.

When pressed by Wallace about the hacking, Putin later went on to say: "Listen to me, please: The information that I am aware of, there is nothing false about it, every single grain of it is true".

President Donald Trump says Russian President Vladimir Putin made an "incredible offer" to allow Russian and US investigators to work together on allegations of Russian cyber attacks. It seemed unlikely that American authorities would take seriously any such offer from Putin, and some US lawmakers openly ridiculed the suggestion. "All the more as the United States will host the World Cup in 2026".

Trump's remarks have drawn fire from Democrats and Republican critics in Congress. "It makes us less safe", Biden said of Trump's remarks.

Meanwhile, back in the United States, revelations dropped that a 29-year-old Russian national has been accused of trying to infiltrate American political organizations, including the National Rifle Association.

But Trump crossed a line with his comments Monday, Murphy said, by "throwing the entire intelligence community under the bus".

Queen Elizabeth and President Donald Trump have finally met
Trump, meanwhile, excoriated London Mayor Sadiq Khan, saying he's doing a "bad job" on crime and terrorism in the capital. Ricky Gervais also posted, in reference to the protests happening on Friday during the American president's visit.

"The president's comments in Helsinki were deeply alarming", said Republican Rep. Carlos Curbelo.

"Millions of Americans will continue to wonder if the only possible explanation for this unsafe behavior is the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President Trump".

Well, Colbert found Mike Pence, Mitch McConnell, Paul Ryan and Devin Nunes - also in Putin's pocket.

"The problem isn't Trump having a summit; it's Trump having a policy that's bad for America, bad for our allies, and only good for Vladimir Putin", Kerry said, calling Trump's behavior at the press conference "disgraceful".

Trump's eagerness to improve USA relations with Russian Federation had been met with skepticism in Congress, where lawmakers almost unanimously approved tough sanctions targeting Moscow in 2017.
