US puts off Putin visit until next year

US reveals when Putin Trump next summit to take place

The expression of concern about Russian meddling is a change in tone for the president, who has repeatedly expressed doubts about Russia's role in interfering in the 2016 US election.

The Trump administration sought to fend off accusations the president is too soft on Russia on Wednesday, putting off a proposed second summit with Russian leader Vladimir Putin and declaring the US will never recognize Russia's 2014 annexation of Crimea.

The shift marks a stunning turnaround for the president, who had faced intense blowback from Republican lawmakers after his cozy summit with Putin in Helsinki, Finland last week.

Trump took heat for initially appearing to accept Putin's denial of meddling in the 2016 USA election. The White House video, she alleged, cut out a key question from Reuters' Jeff Mason, who asked whether Putin wanted Mr. Trump to win the election.

Ushakov said there were "other options" to consider for a bilateral meeting, including at the Group of 20 meeting, which both leaders are expected to attend, in Buenos Aires at the end of November. He said the US would hold to its long-standing principle of refusing to recognize Kremlin claims of sovereignty over territory seized by force in violation of worldwide law.

That soccer ball Russian President Vladimir gifted to President Donald Trump during the Helsinki Summit on Monday, July 16 may have had a bug in it after all.

Mr Pompeo later reassured senators that the United States would not lift sanctions against Russian Federation until Moscow returned control of Crimea to Ukraine.

He said he found it "very discouraging" that Pompeo couldn't answer questions about what went on in the two-hour discussion between the presidents, and that there isn't a formal presentation about the meeting.

He may have been giving businesspeople and celebrities alike a chance to explore the various facets of running a big business as the host of The Apprentice, but as far as California Representative Maxine Waters is concerned, President Donald Trump is the one playing the apprentice role when it comes to his relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

He blasted a lack of information from the Trump administration and said many lawmakers have left their meetings at the White House without a clear sense that there is a coherent strategy in place.

Still, Trump's tweet Tuesday is the US president's firmest confirmation to date of ongoing Russian attempts to interfere in the USA democratic process.

"I am afraid at this point that the Trump administration is being taken for a ride, " he said.

"S$3 o we've agreed that it will be after the first of the year", Bolton's statement said. However, he then abruptly issued the invitation to Putin. Many Republicans joined Democrats in criticizing Trump's performance.

"You can't keep your assets in roubles because the rouble is linked to the dollar and if there will be more sanctions the rouble will suffer", said one businessman, asking not to be named because he didn't want to be linked with sanctions risk. "The offer was conveyed by US National Security Adviser John Bolton".
