Trump delaying proposed next meeting with Russia’s Putin until 2019

Russian President Vladimir Putin's gift of a soccer ball to U.S. President Donald Trump last week set off a chorus of warnings - some of them only half in jest - that the World Cup souvenir could be bugged.

Mr Trump faced heavy criticism from both sides of the political aisle for failing to publicly rebuke Vladimir Putin, the Russian president, for the Kremlin's interference in the 2016 presidential election during a press conference in Helsinki earlier this month.

The soccer ball that Russian President Vladimir Putin gave to President Trump at their summit in Finland apparently contained a chip that can transmit information to nearby cell phones, according to a report.

United States intelligence agencies have concluded that Moscow interfered to sway the vote toward Mr Trump, and a special counsel is investigating whether Mr Trump's campaign worked with the Russians.

"S$3 o we've agreed that it will be after the first of the year", Bolton's statement said.

"President Trump asked @Ambjohnbolton to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway", Sanders said in a tweet.

Many members of Congress had objected to the two leaders meeting again in the fall and said Putin would not be welcome on Capitol Hill. Asked about Trump's tweet, McConnell said he believed it was clear that Russian Federation had interfered in the election - and the unpopular senator had a stark warning for Moscow. "New Day" host Alisyn Camerota insisted that the question was "deleted from the transcript" because "they don't want the public to see that anymore".

"There's lots of work to do to figure out how to implement that, but the United States certainly wants to be part of help achieving that resolution in Syria, make no mistake about it", he added.

And Putin replied: "Yes, I did".

At his meeting with Putin, Trump blamed the "foolish" behaviour of his own country for the terrible state of relations between Russian and the USA, admitting the situation had "never been worse".

Russian Federation hosted the World Cup final just before Mr. Putin and Mr. Trump met in Helsinki.

He has been facing mounting pressure to act since the US Department of Justice indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials and charged them with hacking and stealing Democratic emails.

Trump, at their Helsinki press conference, had called the offer "incredible".

Ryan said he does not have a problem with Trump sitting down with foreign leaders like Putin, as long as he is delivering the right message.
