The Latest: Putin says US-Russia summit was successful - AP News - Breaking News

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders announced on Friday that Trump had asked his National Security Adviser John Bolton to invite Putin to Washington in the fall and that discussions were already under way.

Trump's remarks come ahead of a scheduled July 25 visit to Washington by European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker to discuss "a wide range of priorities" with the USA president, including a "focus on improving transatlantic trade".

At the press conference with Mr. Putin, Mr. Trump refused to directly say Russian Federation was responsible for hacking the Democratic National Committee and meddling with the 2016 presidential election. CNN has previously reported that Trump was briefed on the report by the United States intelligence community, which found that Putin ordered an "influence campaign" aimed at helping Trump and hurting Hillary Clinton in the 2016 presidential election.

Senator Bob Corker (R-Tennessee), chair of the Foreign Relations Committee and another Trump critic, said that summoning the translator and demanding her notes would set a bad precedent.

"There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems.but they can ALL be solved!"

"I watched the president's interaction with President Putin after their one-on-one meeting". "But it made me wonder if people are suspicious that he revealed sensitive, classified intelligence, including human source information, to the president of the Russian Federation". But that is the president's prerogative, ' Coats said.
