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

Amid uproar Trump says he’s ‘looking forward’ to second meeting with Putin

The lawmakers are seeking answers on what agreements Trump may have reached with Putin in their two-hour meeting on Monday in which they were accompanied only by their interpreters.

During the event, Coats also claimed that he didn't know exactly what happened during U.S. President Donald Trump's meeting with Putin earlier this week.

Moscow signaled its openness to a second formal meeting between the two leaders as criticism of Trump over his first major session with his Russian counterpart kept up in the U.S.

He tweeted Thursday the Russian Federation summit was a huge success except with the "Fake News Media", who he called "the real enemy of the people".

A White House official says Friday that those issues include Russian meddling, nuclear proliferation, North Korea, Iran and Syria.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders announced Thursday on Twitter that Mr. Trump has asked national security adviser John Bolton to invite Putin to Washington this fall. "Look at all of the things that I've done".

"I got severely criticized by the Fake News Media for being too nice to President Putin", Trump tweeted.

Trump on Tuesday said he misspoke during the news conference. And the Russian president already appears to be using the conflict in its western borderlands to rev up the talks.

US Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer called for Mr Trump to reveal what he discussed with Mr Putin.

The US president had initially described the proposal as an "incredible offer".

Sen. Roy Blunt, R-Mo., said he believed the news cycles under Trump will have long moved on to other issues by November and the uproar over the Russian Federation summit would not be a policy issue that would resonate with voters, the Washington Examiner reported.

"If the Russians want a better relationship, trips to the White House aren't going to help", he added.

As the White House tried to put some distance between the two leaders, Trump made a jarring move in the opposite direction on Thursday, offering to host Putin in the autumn.

The possible decision to allow Russian investigators to question USA former diplomats sparked further fury on Capitol Hill. Konstantin Kosachev, head of the upper house of parliament's foreign affairs committee, said Thursday the idea sets a unsafe precedent that threats the "the whole idea of diplomacy", according to Russian news agencies.

Shortly before the vote was scheduled to begin, Sanders issued a statement rejecting the Russian proposal.

Trump on Thursday also accused the news media - which he again dubbed the "enemy of the people" - of distorting the summit and pining for a confrontation between the U.S. and Russian Federation, blaming reporters even as much of the coverage this week has focused on Republicans' condemnations. "The President doesn't underestimate Russian Federation in any way, shape or form", McDaniel said then.
