Trump looks forward to second summit with Putin

"It's important that a full-scale meeting has finally taken place allowing us to talk directly".

President Trump came under widespread criticism on Monday for not backing the American intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 presidential election won by him.

"But I let him know we can't have this, we're not going to have it, and that's the way it's going to be", he said.

Clapper, the former director of national intelligence, said this week he continues to wonder whether the Russians have compromising information on Trump. "The combining of faces is a different way for people to see what they couldn't see before".

Trump's comments at the White House followed a series of early morning Twitter posts on Wednesday in which the Republican president said his summit with Putin would eventually produce "big results" and accused his critics of "Trump Derangement Syndrome".

The lively debate in Washington is unthinkable in Russian Federation, where Putin has never faced real political opposition and leads a country that has never had a democratic transition of power.

The announcement that Mr. Putin was in talks to visit Washington again comes amid special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 US elections.

Trump later said he misspoke when he suggested he didn't believe Russian Federation was behind a cyber influence campaign in 2016, but he has not acknowledged that he repeatedly put the U.S. intelligence community's assessment and Putin's denials on the same footing - even giving added credence to Putin's denial.

"They were in charge of national security, they failed and they're now hysterical trying to get us to look at Trump", he said on "America's Newsroom". But now, Gabuev said, "whether this bet on Trump for the long term is a smart one is hard to see".

In a possible dig at Mr Trump's unpredictable presidency, Mr Putin vaunted Russia's "consistent, responsible, independent foreign policy".

Much of the outrage stemmed from one comment Mr Trump made when he appeared alongside Mr Putin on Monday. "I think it was a strong news conference".

"We will see how things develop further", Putin said, evoking unnamed "forces" in the USA trying to prevent any improvement in relations and "putting narrow party interests above the national interest".

While he praised Trump's mediation efforts in North Korea, Putin slammed his decision to pull out of the worldwide accord curbing Iran's nuclear activities.

"The list goes on and on and on", he said. On Tuesday, Russia's defense ministry released a statement saying "it was ready for the practical implementation of the agreements" made between Putin and Trump at the summit, noting it wanted to discuss the New START treaty, interaction in Syria and other military issues.
