Inside Trump's isolated days amid Russian Federation fallout

68% of Republicans approve Trump's handling of summit, poll finds

Asked by the interviewer Jeff Glor why he hasn't specifically condemned Vladimir Putin and if he holds him personally responsible, President Trump said: "Well I would, because he's in charge of the country". The resolution came after Republican leaders barred a vote on two other Russia-related measures. There was also Putin's controversial suggestion that the USA could sit in on the questioning of the 12 indicted Russians - but only if the US would allow Russia to question of Americans whom the Kremlin has accused of committing "illegal activities". Trump said the first summit was "only the beginning" of longer negotiations on numerous contentious issues between the two countries, including arms control, Syria and Ukraine.

The report noted that Trump told aides after the meeting that Putin appeared "strong, smart, and cunning".

A short time later, the White House made another announcement revealing that President Putin had been invited to visit Washington in the autumn.

Trump and Putin just sat down in Finland for a more than 2-hour meeting in which election meddling took center stage.

Trump's misplaced and risky equivocation (he should have firmly rejected Putin's preposterous request) led directly to the vote on Schumer's resolution, which was an unusual display of bipartisanship in these dramatically divided times.

Russian Federation is ready to discuss a proposed new meeting between Putin and Trump, Interfax news agency cited Russia's ambassador to the United States, Anatoly Antonov, as saying on Friday. The principle, reflected in customary worldwide law, was codified by the United Nations in 1961 in the Vienna Convention on Diplomatic Relations, and virtually every country on the planet is a signatory.

Watch: Trump denies Russian Federation still targeting U.S.

Michael McFaul was the target of a smear campaign by Putin during his time in Russian Federation that accused him, among other things, of being a pedophile.

Trump 'ready' to tax all Chinese imports
Trump said he was only expressing his opinion as a private citizen by criticizing the move to raise interest rates . But Trump launched his attack first on Thursday during an interview with CNBC and continued on Friday on Twitter.

President Putin said "useful agreements" had been reached during the summit but we don't know what they are.

Trump allegedly agreed to consider it, but asked the Russian leader to keep deliberations on this issue confidential.

Mr. Trump hinted at a second meeting with Putin on Twitter Thursday morning, saying he looks forward to implementing the things they already discussed in Helsinki.

The U.S. and Russia have been on opposing sides of the conflict in Ukraine, which was unleashed after a popular uprising in 2014 against Ukraine's pro-Russian president and Russia's annexation of Ukraine's Crimean Peninsula a month later.

The referendum Putin seeks is created to give his illegal invasion legitimacy. In 1994, when a small airplane crashed on the White House lawn in the middle of the night, a wisecrack made the rounds: It was CIA Director James Woolsey, trying to get a meeting with the president. The difference? Just two letters and an apostrophe. People were speculating whether Putin had some sort of leverage over Trump that was making him behave in this manner.

Trump has come under fire following the Helsinki talks for what many saw as his unsettling embrace of the Russian strongman - and his seeming disavowal of his own intelligence agencies and their assessment that Moscow meddled in the 2016 election. Putin, who orders journalists murdered and arrests political enemies.

HORSLEY: And whatever tough policies the White House may have adopted towards Moscow have to be weighed against Trump's rhetoric, which is consistently friendly to Putin.
