Miscommunication Reigns After Trump's Meeting with Putin

Setting aside the fact that this now is Putin's word against Trump's due to the recklessly secret nature of the meeting, the American President's answer should have been a flat out "no".

"Trump has faced intense scrutiny for his handling of Russian Federation this past week, after he sided with Putin's denials of election interference during a press conference in Helsinki, Finland", The Hill's Jacqueline Thomsen noted.

Coats issued a rare statement rebutting the president's Monday comments during a press conference with Putin doubting the findings of the intelligence community on Russian election interference.

A White House National Security Council spokesman said later the United States on Friday rejected a proposal from Russian Federation for a referendum to decide the fate of eastern Ukraine. He restated the USA intelligence assessment about Russian meddling and Moscow's "ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy". Her lawyer says the trial is being politicized and Russian embassy staff were only allowed to visit her in jail on Thursday.

Under such bitter criticism, Trump said a day later that he simply misspoke.

The Kremlin has yet to formally respond to the proposal, but Mr Trump has said he is looking forward to his second meeting with Mr Putin.

While they had met privately on three occasions in 2017, Trump opened the door to a potential White House meeting with Putin earlier this year.

In watching the week's events transpire, a former senior administration official told Business Insider it was unclear to them whose, if anyone's, advice the president was taking regarding the fallout from the summit. If Coats had been in Washington instead of the conference, he would have been informed about the plan, one source familiar with the inner workings of the White House said on condition of anonymity. Antonov would not give further details of what was discussed at the Helsinki summit about Ukraine. Obama didn't do it. Obama was a patsy for Russian Federation.

Cecilia Vega, the ABC News reporter who asked the question, said on Twitter that she believes the president heard her clearly and that Trump was looking directly at her when he spoke.

Russian Embassy representatives visited Butina in Washington on Thursday, and said in a statement that she is in good health but "has difficulties in adapting to prison conditions". One day later, the USA president stated that he had "misspoken" at the press conference and that he had actually meant the opposite. "It wasn't always conciliatory in that meeting", he said, without elaborating.
