TIME cover morphs Donald Trump into Vladimir Putin

Donald Trump invites Vladimir Putin to visit Washington in autumn

President Trump's decision to invite Russia's foreign minister and ambassador to the US into the Oval Office during the Russian delegation's May 2017 visit to the White House.

Mr Trump notably flip-flopped repeatedly over what exactly he said to Mr Putin at the summit, and whether he believes that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election campaign on Trump's behalf.

At the same forum in Colorado, deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein released a 156-page report detailing a strategy to combat future attempts by foreign governments to influence U.S. elections, including by revealing them to the public.

The White House later clarified that the president was saying "no" to answering more questions.

Only Sens. John McCain (R., Ariz.) and Richard Shelby (R., Ala.) were absent for the vote.

At the time, White House officials worked to convince a skeptical president that the Nordic capital would serve as a more effective backdrop - and warned of a firestorm should a West Wing meeting go through. In a story explaining the cover, the editors said the merged image represents the conflict between the question of alleged collusion with Russian Federation and the question of whether Russian Federation attempted to influence the 2016 presidential election.

The Russian leader praised Mr Trump's mediation efforts in North Korea, but slammed his decision to pull out of the global accord curbing Iran's nuclear activities.

"I would have suggested a different way, but that's not my role", Coats said, adding that the "risk is always there" that Putin may have recorded the meeting.

Before inauguration, Trump reportedly saw evidence Putin personally ordered election interference
Asked by reporters whether Russian Federation was still targeting the United States, Mr Trump shook his head and said, "No". Trump on Tuesday said he misspoke , attempting to clarify that he believed the intelligence community.

President Trump Has Muddled Message on Russian Meddling
Later that evening Trump was on CBS for an interview and said Putin was only to blame "because he's in charge of the country". When asked if Russian Federation was continuing to target the US, Trump shook his head and said "No".

Such a meeting would be another step towards discussing and resolving problems between the two countries, he said.

In the US presidential campaign that year, Akhmetshin and Veselnitskaya appeared to gain traction.

Russian President Vladimir Putin's request to U.S. President Donald Trump for a joint investigation of former U.S. officials sought by the Kremlin for "illegal activities", including a U.S. ambassador to Russia, is just the latest effort in a years-long campaign to undermine a U.S. law that imposes financial sanctions on Putin's officials.

Illustrating the gulf between Trump and some of his own advisers, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said on Thursday that he did not know what Trump and Putin discussed in their private meeting. "No one makes a big deal of that".

I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be". "We are ready for discussions on this subject".

Trump himself tweeted: "The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media". After coming home, however, Trump said he had "misspoke" during the conference. It was Congress' first formal rebuke of Trump's actions at the summit and in its aftermath.

Trump and Putin held two hours of closed-door talks with no one else present but the interpreters.

In a later briefing, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders insisted that Trump's "no" actually meant he was not taking any more questions from reporters.
