'Helsinki has frozen over': Late night blasts Trump-Putin summit

Vladimir Putin

Trump held his meeting just days after a special prosecutor in the United States indicted 12 Russian agents for stealing Democratic Party documents to help him win the vote.

"What we saw today was the President of the United States belittling our country's own men and women in the intelligence community, refusing to acknowledge or hold accountable Putin for Russian hacking in our elections, and standing in the most servile way next to Putin, advancing Russia's interests in spite of what that means for America", she said.

"Do you really believe that someone acting from the Russian territory could have influenced the United States and influenced the choice of millions of Americans?"

The US leader, bent on forging a personal bond with the Kremlin chief despite the election allegations, went into the summit blaming the "stupidity" of his predecessors for plunging ties to their present low.

"Our relationship has never been worse than it is now".

However, "that changed", he said, "as of about four hours ago". "I responded with the words pretty much similar to what I've said to you, and I think we should leave the discussion at that".

Graham: Don’t put the soccer ball in the Oval Office, Mr. President
As you may be aware, Trump and Putin held their summit in Helsinki today. "But I really do want to see the server". While Trump was seen as hopeful about the meeting's outcome, Putin talked about the "problem areas of the world".

Putin "just said it is not Russian Federation. However there are no objective reasons for these difficulties, the current tense atmosphere".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, a Republican, told reporters: "I've said a number of times and I'll say it again".

President Trump sits down for an exclusive "Hannity" interview.

Lawmakers could back bipartisan bills that have already been filed to protect the investigation of special counsel Robert Mueller - a probe that only last week gave the most detailed description of Russian election interference efforts to date in an indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officials. 'We can make another step.

"The time has come to talk in a substantive way about our relations and problem areas of the world".

Added Sen. Marco Rubio: "Foreign policy must be based on reality, not hyperbole or wishful thinking". "I am the same as I always was", Putin replied, adding that Russian Federation has had to react to a change in behavior by the West, from the NATO expansion eastward and the USA withdrawal from the anti-ballistic missile (ABM) treaty, the 1999 NATO attack on Yugoslavia, the Magnitsky Act expanding U.S. laws beyond its borders, and the 2014 coup in Ukraine.

Tragedy struck the South Shore of MA on Sunday when a police officer and innocent bystander were killed in Weymouth. Chesna was shot in the chest and head and taken to South Shore Hospital where he was later pronounced dead.

"However, I also recognize that in order to build a brighter future, we can not exclusively focus on the past - as the world's two largest nuclear powers, we must get along".

The host also mocked Trump for blaming both the United States and Russian Federation for the break down in the relationship between the two countries.

Lasha Tchantouridze is a professor of diplomacy and worldwide relations at Norwich University, who specializes in Russian Federation and the U.S. He says this meeting between the two leaders could be the start of something different.

Putin pointed out that Mueller's previous indictment, against 13 Russians and a catering company, was being contested in a U.S. court, which "has not discovered any trace of interference whatsoever".

Mr Putin said he and Mr Trump have agreed to continue detailed discussions on arms control issues. "North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has never been more together", he said at a breakfast meeting with the Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.

Tchantouridze insists this meeting could be a step in the right direction.
