Republican base overwhelmingly supports Donald Trump's comments at Helsinki summit

"It's important that a full-scale meeting has finally taken place allowing us to talk directly".

President Donald Trump: "Thank you very much".

This question, of course, refers to the cyber-attacks that Moscow has allegedly launched against the United States, and as it seems, POTUS somehow managed to stop them.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders announced President Donald Trump instructed his national security adviser, John Bolton, to invite Putin to the US capital for a second summit, even as the confusing fallout continues from their initial summit.

Facing growing backlash from his own party, the president held a meeting at the White House Tuesday, attended by members of Congress and the media, where he attempted to backtrack his comments. Putin, on Thursday, said that greater cooperation between Russian Federation and the USA was necessary for global stability, noting, like Trump had, that as the world's largest nuclear powers they have a responsibility to get along.

"Say that again?" Coats offered. "Today, the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack".

During an interview with CBS News on Wednesday, Trump said that he would consider Putin personally responsible for any Russian interference. "I let him know we can't have this".

In the interview, he also claimed he put it to Putin in "very strong" terms that the USA would not tolerate any repeat of the interference in future elections.

You recall the Helsinki Summit?

The pair of tweets were the latest indication that Trump is doubling down on his Russian rapprochement strategy even as his approach to Putin continues to draw bipartisan criticism and questions abound as to what Trump and Putin agreed to during their first meeting.

Meanwhile, Russian politicians are angry at proposals by U.S. lawmakers to question Trump's translator about what the men discussed privately before their news conference.

This runs counter to the rhetoric of US military leaders, who view Russian Federation, along with China, as a high-priority military threat. But, this wouldn't be president Trump if he didn't add a thing of his own like "it could be other people also. There's a lot of people out there".

The cover comes amid walkbacks, clarifications and contradictions by Trump following his joint news conference with Putin on Monday in Helsinki.

The Republican president later said he had misspoken and accused "some people" of hating the fact that he got along with Mr Putin. He just said it's not Russian Federation. "The sentence should have been: 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation'".

Just days after Vladimir Putin, the Russian President, met his American counterpart, Russia's defence ministry has flooded its social media feeds with videos showing a variety of new nuclear weapons systems undergoing flight tests.
