Trump playfully tells Putin, "don't meddle in the election"
UPDATED ON: JUNE 28, 2019 / 9:18 AM / CBS NEWS

President Trump had a closed-door meeting on Friday with Russian President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of the G20 Summit in Osaka, Japan. Before the two leaders met privately with their senior aides, they sat together in front of journalists for a photo opportunity. One of the reporters asked Mr. Trump if he would press the Russian leader to ensure his country does not interfere again in the U.S. democratic process.
"Of course I will," said Mr. Trump with a smirk, before pointing in Putin's direction and saying, "don't interfere in the election." It was unclear whether Mr. Trump followed his sardonic response in front of the cameras with a more serious warning to the Russian leader behind closed doors. The White House did not respond to an inquiry about whether the president's warning was sincere.

U.S. intelligence agencies have concluded that the Russian government carried out an orchestrated campaign aimed at influencing the 2016 U.S. presidential elections. Mr. Trump acknowledged that interference, but rejected the intel communities' findings that the Russians "developed a clear preference for President-elect Trump," and tried to help him.
Ex-intel chief says Russia will "almost certainly" meddle in 2020
In a May tweet, the president appeared to acknowledge "Russia helping me get elected," before walking back the statement later in the day.

    Please, allow me to clarify - Trump supports free trade.

    However, when it is constantly being broken by China Trump has no choice, but respond in kind.

    And you are right, only Trump decided to defend American economy and American workers.

    Trump defends election meddling remarks to Putin

    BY JESSICA CAMPISI 1,554

    President Trump on Saturday defended his remarks to Russian President Vladimir Putin in which he appeared to make light of Russian interference in the 2016 election.

    "You have to take a look at the word. I did say it," Trump said during a news conference at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in Osaka, Japan.

    Trump said Saturday during a news conference that he and Putin had a “tremendous discussion” and suggested election interference came up at another point during their conversation, adding: "I did say it, and I did discuss it a little bit after that, too.”

    A White House readout issued after the roughly 90-minute meeting between Trump and Putin on Friday made no mention of election interference.

    Trump had met with Putin Friday where he was pressed by journalists on whether he would tell Russia not to interfere in U.S. elections.

    “Yes, of course, I will. Don’t meddle in the election, please. Don’t meddle in the election,” Trump said, pointing to Putin and flashing a grin.

    Putin appeared to chuckle in response.

    The exchange drew sharp criticism from those who have accused Trump of being too friendly with Putin.

    Trump’s meeting with Putin marked the first time the two met face-to-face since former special counsel Robert Mueller finished his nearly two-year probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

    In an interview this week with the Financial Times, Putin dismissed Mueller's findings, saying it was “strange" that Russia was still being accused of interference. He also praised Trump as “talented” while adding that "the liberal idea has become obsolete."

    Trump and Putin also shared a laugh during the summit over frustration with journalists, with Trump saying, "Fake news is a great term, isn't it? You don't have this problem in Russia, but we do."

    Putin responded in English: "We also have. It's the same."

    Numerous critics of Putin and Russian journalists have turned up dead over the years in Russia, and the country ranks toward the bottom among all nations in terms of press freedom, according to the World Press Freedom Index.

    Trump regularly derides coverage he dislikes as "fake news" and has labeled specific news outlets the "enemy of the people."

    Trump says he brought up Khashoggi murder with Saudi crown prince

    Trump says he brought up Khashoggi murder with Saudi crown prince
    BY JESSICA CAMPISI 1,830

    President Trump insisted Saturday that he raised the murder of journalist Jamal Khashoggi in his meeting with Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman, CNN reported.

    “I did mention it to him very strongly,” Trump told reporters when asked about the murder. “That was a bad event.”

    “I asked him what was happening,” he added.

    Trump's comments came during a press conference at the Group of 20 (G-20) summit in Japan. The president told reporters Friday that he was "extremely angry and very unhappy" about Khashoggi's killing, but claimed that "nobody has directly pointed a finger" at bin Salman, CNN reported.

    The CIA and a United Nations report implicated bin Salman in Khashoggi's murder, accusing him of authorizing the killing.

    Asked about the CIA’s determination that bin Salman ordered Khashoggi’s murder, Trump said he “cannot comment on intelligence.”

    “We can declassify,” Trump said. “The truth is, I don’t want to talk about intelligence.”

    Trump defended his relationships with world leaders broadly, saying of the Saudi Crown Prince, "I get along with Mohammed."

    Khashoggi, a Washington Post columnist who was critical of bin Salman and the Saudi government, was killed by Saudi operatives in October after he entered the Saudi consulate in Istanbul.

    While Riyadh initially claimed ignorance of the killing, the country’s attorney general later backtracked, acknowledging that Khashoggi was murdered and the killing was premeditated.

    An independent investigation by a United Nations (UN) human rights expert recommended a probe into bin Salman in connection with the murder, citing “credible evidence” supporting Saudi Arabia’s responsibility for the “deliberate, premeditated execution” of Khashoggi.

    Bin Salman has continued to deny any role in the killing.

    While several lawmakers believe it is certain that bin Salman is behind Khashoggi’s murder, Trump has instead underscored the benefits of the U.S.’s relationship with the Saudi kingdom, praising the prince Friday as “a friend of mine.”
