Republicans opposed the amendment, describing it as an unnecessary political stunt. But Trump Jr. said the Russian lawyer instead pushed for changes to the Magnitsky Act, which punished Russians for human rights violations.
Trump sought to play down the June 2016 meeting between Veselnitskaya, Trump Jr., Jared Kushner, and Paul Manafort: "Most people would've taken that meeting", Trump said. "That's the easy thing for me to do, but that's the stupid thing to do", Trump said.

US President Donald Trump said in an interview Wednesday that he has a good relationship with Russian President Vladimir Putin, after the two met for more than two hours in Hamburg last week.
