  • After huge win will Putin try to stay in power for life

Trump's comments drew significant criticism among USA politicians, including by Arizona GOP Sen.

The Kremlin also said Trump had congratulated Putin. He also did not press Putin on Russia's interference in the 2016 election. After multiple administration officials put out statements condemning Russian Federation for the attack, the White House responded by imposing sanctions on Russian Federation for the poisoning and its interference in the 2016 election.

The Post, citing an unspecified number of officials familiar with the call, said Trump likewise did not listen to aides who gave him talking points to condemn a nerve agent poisoning in the United Kingdom, which the USA has blamed on Russian Federation.

"We don't get to dictate how other countries operate", she said. The White House later said there were no specific plans for a summit meeting.

"Why is the president so reluctant to criticize Putin?"

Mr. Trump said they will likely get together in the not-too distant future to discuss the arms race, which Mr. Trump said is getting out of control.

Russian Federation has received global condemnation after Britain blamed Moscow for the recent nerve agent attack that sickened Sergei Skripal and his daughter. Russian Federation has denied the accusations.

He complained in a documentary released online by Russian state television on March 7 - two weeks before the country's elections - that the US was "unpredictable", though he called Trump a potential partner. "You keep thinking it will change as he sees his own administration take action - that this never-ending well of support for Putin will some how subside".

The data firm which helped Trump to win, has come under strict scrutiny in the probe into Russian election interference. CNN reported that no one from the Trump campaign was copied on the email, the sources said.

"We've been very clear in the actions that we've taken that we're going to be tough on Russian Federation, particularly when it comes to areas that we feel where they've stepped out of place", Sanders said.

The Kremlin also said on Tuesday that Trump congratulated Putin on his win during their call and the leaders spoke "in favor of developing practical cooperation in various areas, including in ensuring strategic stability and combating worldwide terrorism".

With U.S. -Russian relations at a long-time low, Peskov said, "Putin remains open for normalizing relations with our American partners where it is in our interests".

"Satisfaction has been expressed with a certain decrease in tensions around the Korean peninsula", the Kremlin said. Russian Federation has repeatedly said it hoped for better ties with the US under Trump.

Putin received calls from a number of other foreign leaders, including French President Emmanuel Macron, Chinese President Xi Jinping, Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and Indian Prime Minister Narendra Modi.

The White House press office declined to comment on the briefing materials given to Trump.

However, any meeting between the two leaders would be controversial, given the ongoing investigations into whether the Trump campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 elections. "The possibility of organizing a top-level meeting received special attention".
