Putin slams Trump's U.S. critics

The Latest Putin says US-Russia summit was successful

Trump has faced sharp criticism from USA lawmakers - including key Republicans - and others who denounced his performance at a July 16 joint press conference with Putin following their Helsinki meeting.

"They truly have taken advantage of the US, but not for long!" he said.

That stands in sharp contrast to the rain of criticism the USA president has faced at home.

Those same forces appeared ready to sacrifice hundreds of thousands of United States jobs and hurt U.S. business and security while waging their divisive political battle, Mr Putin said. "The combining of faces is a different way for people to see what they couldn't see before".

Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, tried on Tuesday to stage a symbolic vote to support the findings of Russian interference, but was blocked by Republicans.

One of those being sought by Russian Federation is former USA ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul, but allowing him to be questioned would breach the legal immunity normally granted to a country's foreign service. Since he refused to back the United States intelligence community's assessment of Russian interference in 2016, Trump has alternated between trying to quell the political uproar he ignited and seeking to avoid backing down from his handling of the summit.

"My people came to me - Dan Coats came to me, some others - they said they think it's Russia", Trump said, referring to the USA director of national intelligence. President Donald Trump: "Well, I would, because he's in charge of the country, just like I consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in this country". She said the USA hopes Putin will have the indicted Russians "come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt". "But no one expected that", Putin said.

The 3 reasons Google was fined $5 billion by the EU
The Commission believes Google's mobile strategy has unfairly strengthened its dominance of internet searching. Google prevented Android phone makers from selling devices that run "forked" versions of the operating system.

Much of the outrage stemmed from one comment Mr Trump made when he appeared alongside Mr Putin on Monday.

The Russian leader praised Mr Trump's mediation efforts in North Korea, but slammed his decision to pull out of the global accord curbing Iran's nuclear activities.

Well, I think we can all agree that there's merit in seeking a more constructive relationship with Russian Federation. The Russian Defence Ministry has said it is ready to implement what it called agreements on increased co-operation with the US military in Syria. "That's going to be special".

"Above all, we need the translator who was present at the one-on-one meeting with President Putin to testify openly before Congress", Schumer said.

Kosachev also said if the summit turns out to be a failure, it won't be the fault of Putin or Trump.

If Putin's speech to the envoys raised serious issues, the Foreign Ministry, known by its Russian acronym MID, used the occasion to make a sardonic quip.
