The precise nature of the blackmail remains a mystery. "But there would need to be the appropriate conditions", Putin said.

Russian business people had hoped the Helsinki meeting, the first between the two presidents, would pave the way for a possible thaw in relations and delay, if not stop, the preparation of more sanctions which have followed thick and fast since Moscow's 2014 annexation of Ukraine's Crimea.

A summit last week between the pair in Helsinki caused Trump serious domestic problems, with the United States president accused of appeasing a man who allegedly tried to tilt the 2016 U.S. presidential election.

Since assuming charge as the President of the United States of America, Trump has been warning the media to not spread "fake news" and be "biased" in its coverage of U.S. politics.

Trump was criticized at home for failing to confront Putin publicly over Moscow's interference in the 2016 USA election, and for seeming to contradict his own intelligence agencies on the threat from Russian Federation.

"Donald Trump is doing what conservative politicians have been doing for a long time but which he is taking to a new level - to use the press as a punching bag, and this plays very well with the conservative base", said Robert Jensen, who is retiring this fall as journalism professor at the University of Texas.

From reportedly raging that CNN was on the first lady's television set, to refusing to take questions from the network, to the White House barring one of its reporters from a press event: the Trump-CNN relationship is toxic.

White House deputy chief of staff for communications Bill Shine and press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders also banned a CNN reporter from that event after she asked Trump several pointed questions during a photo op with European Commission President Jean-Claude Juncker.

The interlocutor added that, according to Putin, the said "referendum" should take place under the supervision of the global community.

"Did I hear you right?" "By all means. By the way, he has such an invitation, I told him about that". "OK, that's going to be special", Coats added with a laugh. Any other national security official in the nation's history would have resigned in protest. "But at this point it's best left to us and them to do that quietly", Giuliani said, noting that he hopes to pin down with Mueller's team "maybe this week" or "maybe next week" whether Trump can sit down for an interview.

Trump's approval rating remains high among his base, with 84% of registered GOP voters approving of his job performance, according to a Reuters/Ipsos survey conducted July 13 to 17.

"I am ready for that", Putin said.

"We are ready for such meetings, we are ready to invite President Trump to Moscow".

Pompeo asked the senators to close their eyes to Trump's actions in Helsinki and pledged that Trump "accepts our intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election".

Last week, Trump told his supporters: "Stick with us".

Most people see it differently, according to new polls from and. He also advised: "What you are seeing and what you're reading is not what's happening". Trump has said he wants to improve ties between the two nuclear powers, whose relations have dipped to a post-Cold War low in recent years.
