US Pres. Trump: Spent a great deal of time talking about alleged Russian interference in 2016 election

He added that he and Putin "spent a great deal of time" on the issue of election meddling, and discussed the Syria crisis at length. Washington and Moscow back different sides in the eight-year-old civil war. He also said he wanted to ask about Israel's nuclear weapons arsenal. He told CBS News previous year that he can't get meetings with us officials in D.C.

The meeting was hotly contested by lawmakers, who demanded Trump cancel the meeting, to agree to bring other USA officials in the meeting, and to prioritize discussing campaign meddling - none of which Trump publicly committed.

Trump received a football of the FIFA World Cup in the news conference. "I don't see any reason why it would be", he replied.
