Klobuchar Slams Trump For Friendly Putin Call: POTUS 'Coddles Up' To Putin

"That remains our view", Pompeo said on "Fox News Sunday".

"We didn't discuss that".

The intelligence community has long warned Trump of Russia's longstanding interference efforts that show no signs of stopping - and that the President has shown little interest in combating.

Mr. Trump made no point out of his and Mr. Putin's differences over North Korea in describing the name, which lasted bigger than an hour.

President Trump drew widespread criticism for his remarks at a joint press conference in Helsinki on Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Kremlin said Putin informed Trump of the main results of his meeting with top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un last week.

A day later, North Korea launched over the Sea of Japan what satellite images suggested was a short-range missile, spooking nations along the Pacific Rim. "Now new excuses are being sought to attack President Trump".

Both presidents have held their first meeting in Russia's Vladivostok on April 25, and had an in-depth discussion on various topics including the denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula, bilateral relations and relations with the United States. Putin also told Trump that the new leadership in Ukraine should take steps to solve the Ukrainian crisis, the Kremlin said.

"We talked about many things, and he (Putin) is not looking at all to get involved in Venezuela other than he would like to see something positive happen for Venezuela, and I feel the same way". The United States supports in the months of the ongoing power struggle with the leader of the opposition, and even the transitional President Juan Guaidó, Russian Federation called behind the left-wing leader Nicolás Maduro.

A conservative host on Friday was left stunned after President Donald Trump admitted that he had talked to Vladimir Putin about Robert Mueller's investigation - but had not challenged the Russian president for meddling in U.S elections. 'But he knew that because he knew there was to no collusion whatsoever'.

White House press secretary Sarah Sanders speaks with reporters outside the White House, Friday, May 3, 2019, in Washington.

Mueller's report concluded that Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election was "sweeping and systematic", but investigators did not find a criminal conspiracy between Russia and the Trump campaign.

The United States has sent hundreds of tons of food and medical supplies for Venezuela to neighboring Colombia and Brazil, but has not yet been allowed to deliver it.

Defense officials said they discussed options on Venezuela. Something the other administration failed to do, ' she claimed. "The president reiterated that sentiment several times throughout the call", Sanders said. And we're going to do everything that we can to prevent it from happening.

The president spoke to Putin by phone for an hour Friday.
