White House says Trump 'open' to Putin meeting - USA

US President Donald Trump left tosses a soccer ball to his wife first lady Melania Trump after Russian President

Rarely has an RSVP been so complicated.

Asked in Helsinki whether he would extradite 12 Russian intelligence agents indicted in the United States for hacking Democratic Party computers, Putin said he could meet the U.S. government "halfway".

"There are other options (to meet) which our leaders can look at", aide Yuri Ushakov told reporters, citing a meeting of G20 leaders in Argentina which starts at the end of November. "Because he talked about the normalization of Russian-American relations".

According to one of them, Trump asked Putin not to discuss the idea at a press conference after the summit in Helsinki, so that Trump woud have enough time to consider it.

That docile performance in Helsinki required Trump to turn his back on American intelligence officials who have briefed him on the overwhelming evidence of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

In a country where state media portrays Putin as a seemingly infallible leader, even some of his supporters were fretting that he may have made an error by appearing to demonstrably take Trump's side. Moscow was lukewarm and did not immediately accept.

Stormy Daniels arrest pre-planned by police department, emails show
Mr Cohen's lawyer, Lanny Davis , cautioned against believing everything that a lawyer says in the heat of a legal battle. Daniels, whose real name is Stephanie Clifford, was arrested along with two other women.

After the summit, trump harshly criticized both in the United States and in Europe. As the two presidents sat in armchairs, Collins asked Trump whether he felt betrayed by Michael Cohen, the president's former lawyer and fixer, who had released an audio recording of one of their conversations.

Russia is preparing for a meeting of Russian Security Council Secretary Nikolay Patrushev with U.S. National Security Advisor John Bolton, Moscow said on Friday.

Kaitlan Collins and her employer, CNN, say the White House denied Collins access to Trump's Rose Garden event with the European Commission president because officials found her earlier questions "inappropriate".

"That's because Trump is too chicken to hold traditional news conferences and these exercises in photo op-ery often are White House correspondents' only chance to ask questions of the president of the United States".

"I understand very well what President Trump said: He has the wish to conduct further meetings", Putin said while traveling in Johannesburg.

"And I'm ready to come to Washington if appropriate conditions for work are created", he said.

What Trump’s EU Trade Talks Mean for the Shoe Industry
The EU will also reduce barriers and increase trade of American soybeans. "Normally trade discussions take months or a year". Whether any actual concessions have been made or will be made, a freeze on the spiral of tariffs on both sides is good news.

According to Ms. Collins, she told the White House spokespeople that "You're banning me from an event because you didn't like the questions I asked?"

"In total, in 2018 the fleet should receive 26 new ships, boats and vessels, including four ships with the Caliber missile system", Putin said.

It is part of a "power game", said Alina Polyakova of the Brookings Institution, adding that the Kremlin basically drove the entire process in Helsinki and "we're seeing that again now".

Putin is now on a South Africa visit for an economic conference and added that appropriate conditions were required for another summit for talks between the two nuclear powers. The last time Trump was in the Russian capital was in 2013, to attend a Miss Universe beauty pageant.

Referring to USA backlash against Trump over his performance in Helsinki, Putin said that political turbulence in the United States would not derail contacts between the two leaders. The of those wanted by the Russian law enforces includes United States ambassador to the country, Michael McFaul, and financier, Bill Browder, according to Russia's Prosecutor Generals' Office.

The US justice department has been investigating Mr Cohen for months, having raided his home, office and hotel room in search of documents related to a 130,000 dollar (£99,000) payment the attorney facilitated before the 2016 election to Stormy Daniels.
