'Helsinki has frozen over': Late night blasts Trump-Putin summit

Meeting With Putin'Even Better Than With NATO Says Trump

House Speaker Paul Ryan, calling Russia's government "menacing", said he was willing to consider additional sanctions on Russian Federation, and reiterated his support for United States intelligence community findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

"I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said. "We thought yesterday was the craziest day of this ridiculous presidency".

After the summit, Trump reiterated his stance. "And it has had a negative impact upon the relationship of the two largest nuclear powers in the world. Not only were Trump's comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin", the former Central Intelligence Agency head continued.

"I don't want to insult President Trump when I say this - and I may come as rude - but before he announced that he will run for presidency, he was of no interest for us", Putin said.

The US president was also asked whether he held Russian Federation accountable on any particular issue. We should have had this dialogue a long time ago.

Mr Trump's comments put himself out of step with U.S. intelligence agencies, which concluded that Russian Federation was behind an effort to tip the 2016 USA presidential election against Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton, with a state-authorised campaign of cyber-attacks and fake news stories planted on social media. "I think that's an incredible offer, OK?"

Meanwhile, Mayor of London Sadiq Khan defended his decision to allow the inflatable Trump balloon to pop up over London . He backpedalled away the comments on Friday, saying of May's Brexit talks: "Whatever you're going to do is OK with us".


Some US politicians had called for the summit to be cancelled after 12 Russian military intelligence agents were indicted last week, accused of hacking Mrs Clinton's election campaign.

Another senior Republican, Senator John McCain, said it was "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory".

The Wisconsin Republican says the American intelligence community and the House Intelligence Committee agree that Russian Federation interfered in the election.

Kimmel mocked the president for "spreading the blame around" by saying that others may have interfered with the election besides Russian Federation and for having to write that "There was NO COLLUSION" on his notes.

Mr Trump's former communications director Anthony Scaramucci told CNN the "optics are bad" and "he has to reverse course immediately".

Standing alongside the Kremlin boss, Trump acknowledged that his intelligence chiefs believe Russian Federation hacked and leaked Democrats' emails containing politically damaging information about his rival Hillary Clinton.

Trump wanted to give presser credit where it was due, modestly turning talk to Putin's remarks about Trump.
