News & Politics

President Donald Trump was back on Twitter early Sunday morning, claiming that he pressed Russian President Vladimir Putin on Russian meddling in the 2016 election and said the Democrats are to blame. Trump returned to the U.S. late Saturday from the G20 conference where he had his first face-to-face meeting with Putin since becoming president. Reports have varied on what the two presidents discussed in the their meeting that went nearly two and a half hours. Sunday morning, Trump delivered his Twitter version of the events, writing, "I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election. He vehemently denied it. I've already given my opinion." Trump then turned the blame on the Democratic Party and former President Barack Obama, while claiming Putin's Russia will help the U.S. with its "cyber security" problems.
