For Russia, Trump is creating more problems than he solves

In a series of tweets on Thursday, Trump accused the "fake news media" of pushing U.S. confrontation with Russian Federation, adding "they ... hate the fact that I'll probably have a good relationship with Putin".

Trump on Thursday listed the topics discussed as "stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear proliferation, cyber attacks, trade, Ukraine, Middle East peace, North Korea and more".

It comes after Trump held a press conference with Putin in Helsinki on Monday, in which the USA leader was accused of not pressing his Russian counterpart on the election meddling that both the Central Intelligence Agency and the Federal Bureau of Investigation have concluded was conducted by Moscow.

Trump, appearing with President Vladimir Putin, at first said he didn't believe Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 election - but then said he does.

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

The latest cover of Time magazine has once again taken aim at President Donald Trump, merging his image with that of Russian President Vladimir Putin. "In general, it was a success and led to useful agreements", Putin said at a conference of Russian ambassadors. "Of course, let's see how events will develop further", he said, without disclosing the nature of the agreements he referred to. "I think this one, especially the presentation that was made at the end, was disconcerting to most Americans and certainly was to me", Corker said.

Putin made what Trump called an "incredible offer" during a joint press conference concluding their summit in Helsinki, for which Trump received bipartisan condemnation at home.

Putin had both good and bad things to say about Trump in a broad speech about foreign policy.


Having Donald Trump in the White House is looking increasingly like a liability for the Kremlin, rather than an asset.

Graham said Trump was right to criticize previous administrations for their handling of Russian Federation.

The White House later said the United States president had been saying "no" to further questions from reporters and that the threat to the USA electoral system "still exists". "And I think we're all to blame" for the poor relations that exist between the USA and Russian Federation.

Before McConnell announced Thursday's vote on the Schumer-Menendez-Schatz resolution, Senate Republicans blocked two efforts to bring up resolutions affirming lawmakers' support for the intelligence community's assessment, the special counsel's probe into alleged ties between Trump and the Kremlin, and urge the president to take a harder stand against Russian Federation. "We are doing MUCH better than any other country!"

"I thought it would be obvious but I would like to clarify just in case it wasn't".

Sanders did not say whether Trump supports the idea of letting Russian authorities question USA officials. But now, Gabuev said, "whether this bet on Trump for the long term is a smart one is hard to see".

He added that US legal restrictions imposed in response to Russia's annexation of Crimea in 2014 provide no room for military-to-military coordination or collaboration with Russian Federation.
