Following Monday's meeting between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Democrats insinuated that the U.S. president could not be trusted and demanded to get an account of his two-hour meeting with Putin from the translator, who was identified as Marina Gross.
The announcement that Mr. Putin was in talks to visit Washington again comes amid special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's interference in the 2016 USA elections.
Trump later said he had misspoken, and the White House has been struggling to contain a political outcry and confusion over the summit ever since. The White House on Wednesday denied that President Trump said Russian Federation was no longer a threat to the United States.
Trump has come under widespread domestic criticism about the meeting with Putin both from Democratic opponents and some Republicans.
Putin announced the development of a new series of missiles ahead of his re-election in March that would reportedly be capable of circumventing USA missile defenses.
NWS Forecast: Hot, Stormy Tuesday With Possible Flooding
While the Omaha metro will stay mostly dry, showers and storms will be possible mainly after 3 a.m. for counties to the west. Sunshine and warm temperatures once again in the forecast today with highs topping out in the upper 80's to mid 90's.
President Donald Trump has rejected a proposal by Vladimir Putin to allow Russian officials to interrogate a former United States ambassador and other American citizens, White House Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said Thursday. "I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, including stopping terrorism, security for Israel, nuclear".
In a possible dig at Trump's erratic presidency, Putin touted Russia's "consistent, responsible, independent foreign policy".
The Defense Ministry made a string of announcements about progress on the weapons, unveiled in a speech by President Vladimir Putin in March. He did not directly deny that his government had any and said he was not aware that Trump was in Moscow in 2013 for a Miss Universe pageant, a dubious claim given that Trump tweeted that he hoped the Russian leader would attend and at least one member of Trump's entourage was in touch with Kremlin officials about Putin attending the event, according to congressional testimony.
'I think we will learn more.
At the press conference Monday after the summit, Trump appeared to take Putin's word that Russian Federation didn't meddle in the 2016 presidential election.
On Wednesday, he sparked fresh controversy by appearing to say "no" when asked if Russian Federation was still targeting the USA, again contradicting intelligence agencies.
President Barack Obama welcomed then-Russian President Dmitry Medvedev to the White House in 2010, and took him on a burger run at a joint just outside the capital.
But Trump has repeatedly branded his Putin powwow a major accomplishment.
U.S. lawmakers are calling for a court demand to be issued for the notes of the U.S. translator who accompanied Mr Trump to his two-hour meeting with Mr Putin. And on Wednesday, Sanders told reporters that Trump's "no" in response to a query about Russia's continued attempts to meddle was in fact a declaration that he wouldn't answer the question.
