Defiant Trump says Russian Federation not targeting US, calls critics deranged

"He likes President Xi, he likes Erdogan - who I think is the most risky guy in the world", Bannon said, referring to President Recep Tayyip Erdogan of Turkey.

The two leaders held two hours of closed-door talks with no one else present but the interpreters.

Jeff Flake, a Republican from Arizona who has been critical of Trump's performance with Putin, told reporters he'd like to see the translator's notes, but only in a classified setting.

When asked if he holds Putin personally responsible for the election interference, Trump said he does, but declined to say whether Putin had lied.

"We wouldn't actually spend as much time and effort as we are if we didn't believe that [Russia is] still looking at us", she said.

Democratic lawmakers on Wednesday pushed for Congress to subpoena Donald Trump's interpreter, amid a growing sense of alarm over the private summit in Helsinki between the US president and Russia's Vladimir Putin.

On Tuesday, Sen. Jeanne Shaheen, a Democrat from New Hampshire, proposed the idea of bringing the translator before Congress to testify about the one-on-one meeting with Putin, a private discussion that has left lawmakers on both sides of the aisle uneasy after Trump came out publicly Monday and said Putin was convincing in his denial that Russian Federation meddled in the U.S. election.

At the joint news conference between Trump and Putin on Monday, Trump called it an "interesting idea". At a meeting with members of Congress, he read a statement saying that he accepted the us intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

When asked if he would accept Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats' assessment that Russian Federation is engaged in "ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine [American] democracy", Trump answered: "Well, I'd accept it".

Just like I consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in the U.S., he said.

GLOR: "What did you say to him?"

A video that has surfaced showing Melania Trump's horrified expression after shaking hands with Vladimir Putin has sent Twitter into a storm.

CHANG: Yeah. But at the same time, Trump says he wants to have a warmer relationship with Vladimir Putin and hopes someday that they might even be friends. I will tell you though, it better not be. It would allow Special Counsel Robert Mueller's prosecutors to question alleged Russian intelligence agents accused of hacking Democrat emails, but would also give Russian prosecutors access to USA officials allegedly involved with oligarch Bill Browder's tax crimes - notably, former U.S. ambassador to Moscow, Michael McFaul.

According to a transcript posted by the White House, he said: "My people came to me. they said they think it's Russian Federation".
