At RNC meeting, no one is sweating Trump-Putin summit

Homeland Security Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen speaks at the Immigration and Customs Enforcement agency headquarters in Washingt

The remarks came amid the rain of domestic criticism over his performance in his first meeting with Putin in Helsinki, and Russia's request to question American citizens including former U.S. ambassador Michael McFaul.

The assessment found that Russian efforts favored Trump and the Republican Party, but Nielsen would not definitively comment on that piece of the report. "We are ready for discussions on this subject", he said.

Coats, a two-time former senator, criticized the current atmosphere of intelligence oversight in Congress. "Things have been accomplished, but I think it could be a much better atmosphere", he said.

"So I had a meeting that lasted for more than two hours".

Trump is planning to host Putin for talks in Washington later this year, after a first bilateral meeting in Helsinki on Monday.

However, Russia "was always open to such proposals".

Pressed by reporters on how she viewed her relationship with Trump in light of his repeated criticism of Germany's asylum policies, defense spending and trade surpluses, a diplomatic Merkel stressed the importance of transatlantic cooperation.

Conflicting messages from the White House this week added to the confusion after Trump's overseas trip, during which he appeared to draw closer to Russian Federation after alienating North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies.

"She also said she has yet to see any evidence that Russian Federation orchestrated a cyberattack on our democracy to support President Trump's candidacy".




By Thursday, White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders issued a clarifying statement: "It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it".

She denounced Trump's "frightened fawning over Putin" as a threat to American democracy and called on House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.) to declare that the Russian leader was not - and would never be - welcome on Capitol Hill. The secretary's denial came a day after Sanders, the White House press secretary, indicated that no final decision had been made.

"I think that's an incredible offer. OK?"

President Trump came under widespread criticism on Monday for not backing the American intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 presidential election won by him.

The White House backtrack came just before the Senate voted overwhelmingly against the proposal.

The families' separation sparked an worldwide outcry, and President Donald Trump ordered that the practice be halted on June 20.

However, neither Trump nor the White House has confirmed any agreements between the two countries.

Nielsen seemingly agreed with the president's previous statements, saying that, "I have to work with everyone to help communities understand, what are the warning signs?". -Russian relations are "in some ways worse than during the Cold War", but that the meeting with Trump allowed a start on "the path to positive change".
