White House: Security focus for next Trump-Putin meeting

White House: Security focus for next Trump-Putin meeting

The State Department, by contrast, rejected the proposal - which Trump days earlier had called an "incredible offer - as "absurd".

Sarah Sanders, the White House press secretary, said Trump asked his national security adviser John Bolton to extend the invitation to Putin for a "working level" dialogue between the two leaders.

If that meeting takes place in Washington, I think it is all to the good. "Those conversations are incredibly important".

Some in Trump's inner circle saw the Helsinki summit as problematic for the president and that he looked weak, another source close to Trump said, as he missed a chance to show strength in dealing with Putin by confronting him about the election interference.

It was not clear whether such a meeting would take place before or after the November congressional elections in the U.S.

No Russian leader has visited the White House in almost a decade.

Controversy has raged over the Helsinki summit, with Mr Trump having to correct his own words from the press conference which followed it.

Russian Federation is promising to keep Iran away from Israel's borders, but as Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said Thursday there is reason to doubt whether they can deliver on that.

The record is vital in case the other side has a different understanding or recollection of what occurred, as it "provides the means for the United States side to rebut that country's arguments", McKeon said, adding that it also ensures the USA can follow through on commitments made by the president.

Upon returning from Helsinki, Trump said he had misspoken at a joint news conference with Putin when he questioned why Russian Federation would have interfered in the 2016 election. "It is what it is", Coats said in a verbal shrug. They answered questions at a school from students on women's rights, the details of reducing their nuclear arsenals and their sudden race to put together a government in Afghanistan that represented a cross-section of the country's fractious tribes, subjects that could easily come up again if Trump and Putin repeated the exercise. But he said, "Russia was always open to such proposals". Trump's public doubting of Russia's responsibility in a joint news conference with Putin on Monday provoked withering criticism from Republicans as well as Democrats and forced the president to make a rare public admission of error.

It was the latest about-face from the White House as it struggled to quiet the post-Helsinki summit uproar.

The controversy escalated on Wednesday, when Sanders told reporters Trump was entertaining a proposal from Putin that would allow special counsel Robert Mueller's team to interrogate the 12 Russian military intelligence officials it indicted last week if, in exchange, the U.S. allowed the Russian government to interrogate certain Americans, including the former United States ambassador to Russia, Michael McFaul. Framed fake Time cover with the USA president and the headline "The Apprentice is a television smash!" have been reported to be hanging in five of his clubs.
