Time magazine’s latest cover shows Trump and Putin morphed into one

Trump has agreed to continue an ongoing working-level dialogue between the two security council staffs, she said.

"Certain forces are trying to disavow the results of the meeting in Helsinki", and hamper progress on what they discussed, such as limiting their nuclear arsenals or ending the war in Syria, Putin said.

Trump has come under widespread domestic criticism about the meeting.

While many people remain horrified by Trump's relationship with Russian Federation, the president continues to tweet about the success of the Summit and even hinted at a second one. He said it would have been naive to expect that the summit could have resolved problems that had built up over many years in the space of a few hours, but that a start had been made.

He cited US sanctions and the expulsion of alleged Russian spies from the USA, telling reporters that Putin "understands it, and he's not happy about it".

"That's going to be special", a visibly surprised Coats said.

News of a second Trump-Putin summit came soon after the Senate voted unanimously to rebuke Putin's attempt to convince Trump to hand over current and former American officials for questioning - an offer Trump had previously called "incredible".

He was quoted by AFP as saying in a Moscow speech that Trump's critics in the United States were "pathetic, worthless people", an apparent allusion to a quotation by Soviet satirists Ilya Ilf and Yevgeny Petrov.

Taken as a whole, the videos are likely to be seen as Kremlin muscle-flexing as both sides jockey for the upper hand after the summit between Mr Putin and Donald Trump, the US President in Helsinki. After the meeting, the U.S. president had declared that he believed Putin's claims that Russian Federation had not interfered in the USA presidential election.

Many critics also complained that there was no record of agreements, if any, that were reached between the two during their one-on-one meeting. 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.

Despite bipartisan criticism, Trump pointed blame at the media, tweeting: "The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russian Federation, even a confrontation that could lead to war". "I think it was a strong news conference".

He also lashed out at Europe and US-dominated North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, saying - without elaboration - that Russian Federation would hit back with an "equivalent response" to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation bases near Russia's borders and other "aggressive steps".

"I told you so!" The European Union just slapped a Five Billion Dollar fine on one of our great companies, Google.
