White House spokesperson says Trump, Putin talks sanctions


Trump tweeted Sunday morning that "sanctions were not discussed".

"Well, in all due respect, and I think very highly of the senator, but let me just comment on that". Moscow is eager to sell the appointment of a U.S. special envoy on Ukraine as a breakthrough.

Some media reports may have prematurely assumed that the creation of a joint commission on cyber security was already decided, she said.

"They're the most aggressive, most effective cyberattackers in the world", Stewart said.

The US and Russian sides have issued sharply conflicting accounts of Friday's meeting, with Putin saying on Saturday that Trump had been "satisfied" by his denials of any Russian interference in the polls. It may stop accusing the U.S. of abetting terrorists in Syria.

"I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election", Trump said of their meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit.

Also at the Summit, world leaders announced their commitment to the Paris Climate Accord despite President Trump's decision earlier this year to pull out.

"The President absolutely did not believe the denial of President Putin", Priebus said.

"The G20 Summit was a great success for the US - Explained that the US must fix the many bad trade deals it has made".

The broad language appeared to be an attempt to keep Washington in the big G20 tent in terms of trade policy, even though leaders recognize there are broad differences of approach.

"It's yet to be seen what is going to be of Assad", Priebus said.

The White House later issued a statement refuting Lavrov's claim. He asked pointed questions, I answered them. As trade expert Prof Simon Evenett points out, this pledge "has been broken every 13 hours since it was agreed", as governments racked up 5,886 new trade restrictions. Indeed, it was a tough way for Kerry to end nearly 34 years in public office. The President pressed President Putin, on more than one occasion, regarding Russian involvement. For Russia, North Korea's nuclear and missile programs are a check on U.S. global power. In their appeals to ethnocentric nationalism and their disregard for the values that unite democracies across geography and cultures, Trump and Putin have more in common than having rooted for the same candidate last fall. How do we live with one another? Russia has denied trying to influence the US election.

The only deliverable is a scrappy local cease-fire on a secondary front in south-west Syria, which went into effect Sunday morning.

The problem with the cyberworld is that you often don't know what's happened until it's too late. "Do we have enough respect for our citizens to protect our borders?"

President Donald Trump appears to be backing away from the idea of working with Russia to create a "cyber security unit" to guard against election hacking. Mr Trump was intransigent in the face of appeals by other nations to recommit to the Paris climate change agreement. Asked about the discrepancies on Saturday, Putin spokesman Dmitry Peskov joked, "Trust Lavrov".
