Donald Trump to invite Vladimir Putin to White House in autumn

Trump was nonetheless unfazed by the backlash, deeming the summit as a "great success" in a tweet earlier on Thursday while saying he looked forward to a second meeting with Putin.

"My thoughts were that I needed to correct the record for that", Coats said Thursday at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado. "There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems ... but they can ALL be solved!"

He said: "I don't see any reason why it would be".

"I was just doing my job", Coats told an audience at the Aspen Security Forum in Aspen, Colorado, defending a public rebuke he'd issued on Monday after Trump claimed Russian Federation hadn't targeted the U.S. After coming home, however, Trump said he had "misspoke" during the conference.

Critics complained that Trump was given ample opportunity at a joint news conference on Monday to scold Putin over Russian interference in the USA election but instead accepted Putin's denials over the word of American intelligence agencies.

Asked by reporters on Wednesday if Russian Federation was still targeting the United States, Trump shook his head and said, "No". They didn't do their job, and I think whatever the Russians got away with is because of the weakness the Obama administration had.

He singled out the "Fake News Media" as the real enemy of the people in a series of tweets in which he said Israel, Ukraine and peace in the Middle East would be discussed at the next meeting.

'Okay.' Coats said, chuckling as he appeared to contemplate the prospects.

Trump appeared to accept the information presented to him that proved Russian Federation meddled in the election, the report states.

At a post-summit news conference with Putin, Trump responded to a question about Russian meddling in the 2016 USA presidential election by casting doubt on the findings of his own intelligence agencies and denouncing the "stupidity" of US policies.

Trump was inaugurated as US president on January 20, 2017.

No "consultation" is needed to make clear that US will never cooperate in Putin's crusade against Bill Browder or former USA officials, like Ambassador McFaul.@McFaul served his country honorably.

Just last month, Time used the President in another striking image on its cover, when the Trump administration's policy that separated families crossing the United States border was dominating the headlines.

The US president later claimed to have misspoken and said he accepted the US intelligence community's conclusion of Moscow's interference.

At the Hudson Institute think tank in Washington last Friday, Coats said, "We are not yet seeing the kind of electoral interference in specific states and voter data bases that we experienced in 2016; however, we fully realize that we are just one click on a keyboard away from a similar situation repeating itself".
