Putin says had useful interaction with Trump at Vietnam summit

Putin says had useful interaction with Trump at Vietnam summit

Trump said he asked Putin again about the allegations, "you can only ask him so many times".

Clapper piled on: "He seems very susceptible to rolling out the red carpet and honor guards and all the trappings and pomp and circumstance that come with the office, and I think that appeals to him, and I think it plays to his insecurities". "And I think everybody understood this that heard the answer". "But he says I didn't do that". "They were sanctioned at a very high level, and that took place very recently".

"It's very clear that the Russians interfered in the election and it's still puzzling as to why Mr. Trump does not acknowledge that, embrace it and also push back hard against Mr. Putin", he said.

However, he added that the measure was "seriously flawed" and that it "improperly encroaches on executive power, disadvantages American companies, and hurts the interests of our European allies".

On Saturday, President Donald Trump called former CIA Director John Brennan and former Director of National Intelligence James Clapper "political hacks" on Saturday for disagreeing with his friendly stance toward Russian Federation.

"He said he didn't meddle". "I asked him again".

Speaking with reporters later aboard Air Force One, Trump said the Syria statement is "going to save tremendous numbers of lives, and we did it very quickly, we agreed very quickly".

Peskov told CNN's Matthew Chance earlier Saturday that, as far as he knew, Putin and Trump did not discuss meddling in the elections, though he later said it was discussed between the two leaders. "He did not do what they are saying he did".

The director of the CIA has stood by intelligence which is claimed to show Russian Federation did try to meddle in last year's election.

"Every time he sees me, he said: 'I didn't do that.' And I believe - I really believe - that when he tells me that, he means it", President Trump said.

Part of the answer could be that Trump is easily flattered by foreign leaders if they praise him, as Clapper noted.

Trump, now in the Philippines at the end of a 12-day Asia tour, had lashed out at Brennan, Clapper and former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey after facing stiff criticism at home for saying he believed President Vladimir Putin was honest in insisting that Russian Federation had not interfered in the United States election.

But he said that having a friendly relationship with Russian Federation, as opposed to an adversarial one, "is an asset to the world and an asset to our country, not a liability".

"Having a good relationship with Russia's a great, great thing".

Trump said he and Putin had "two or three short conversations" on the sidelines of the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in Da Nẵng, Vietnam. Hope for his help to solve, along with China the unsafe North Korea crisis.

And it wouldn't be a Twitter tirade without a swing at Hillary: "Does the Fake News Media remember when Crooked Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, was begging Russian Federation to be our friend with the misspelled reset button?"

President Trump danced around the question of whether he believed Putin's denials, telling reporters that pressing the issue would have accomplished little.

"Getting along with other nations is a good thing, not a bad thing", he added.
