President Trump says Russian Federation no longer targeting the US

Trump's comments came a day after he walked back his public questioning of USA intelligence findings of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

In his first public comments about the summit, Mr Putin told Russian diplomats that US-Russian relations are "in some ways worse than during the Cold War", but that his meeting with Mr Trump allowed them to start on "the path to positive change".

In an interview with "CBS Evening News," Trump said he agreed with Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, who has repeatedly spoken out about Russia's meddling.

Putin pointed out that his first full-fledged meeting with Trump "resulted in useful agreements".

"I mean the interests of Israel, in particular", Putin said, adding that Trump and he had discussed ways to ensure security on the Golan Heights. Those previous comments, delivered alongside Russian President Vladimir Putin at a summit press conference Monday, had prompted blistering, bipartisan criticism at home.

"The sentence should have been: "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't" or 'why it wouldn't be Russian Federation", he told reporters at the White House.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump claimed that no USA president has been as "tough" as him on Russian Federation.

Putin acknowledges that U.S. President Trump does not recognize the annexation of Ukraine's Crimea.

Just hours before the CBS interview was broadcast, the White House was forced to clarify another statement Trump gave at a Cabinet meeting earlier on Wednesday.

Critics have accused Mr Trump of siding with Russian Federation over his own country by failing to criticize Moscow for what usa intelligence agencies past year described as Russia's election interference in an attempt to sow discord, aid Trump's candidacy and disparage Trump's Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

National Intelligence Director Dan Coats had sounded an alarm, comparing the cyberthreat today to how the way USA officials said before 9/11 that intelligence channels were "blinking red" with warning signs that a terror attack was imminent.

Others say Trump's relationship with Putin, whatever it may be, is positive for the US, and won't change their minds about their president.

At the news conference with Putin, he was asked if he would denounce what happened in 2016 and warn Putin never to do it again, and he did not directly answer. And people understand. I think the press largely makes up a lot of the fuss about a lot of things. "That was a big factor", Trump said.

Lawmakers from both parties have been sounding the alarm over fresh interference by Russian Federation as they push to fortify US election infrastructure ahead of the midterm elections.

He also offered a twisted explanation of his assertion in Helsinki that he could not see "any reason" why Russian Federation would interfere, claiming he misspoke.

Trump has had a tense relationship with US intelligence agencies since before he was elected - largely due to their conclusion that Putin ordered "an influence campaign" in 2016 aimed at helping the Trump campaign and harming his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. I want to work forward with Putin toward peace, toward nuclear reduction, working to put pressure on North Korea and China, working together collaboratively in Syria against ISIS.
