Trump later reiterated his support for the intelligence community on Twitter, while adding that diplomacy between Russian Federation and the US must also be a priority.

Press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders mentioned Syria, Iran, Israel, arms control, Russia's annexation of Crimea from Ukraine and its meddling in 2016 USA election as having been discussed.

The US President had also mentioned that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign was "a disaster for our country", while also saying that it had negatively impacted US-Russia relations.

Putin made the offer in exchange for the United States allowing Russian Federation to question people "who have something to do with illegal actions in the territory of Russian Federation".

"As I expressed to the president on my third visit to the Oval Office as his adviser, I said: 'Mr". "I was just doing my job", he said.

She said the US hopes Mr Putin will have the Russians indicted on charges brought by the US Department of Justice "come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt".

Trump's director of national intelligence, Dan Coats, said in response to a question at the Aspen Security Forum in Colorado: "Well, you're right, I don't know what happened at that meeting".

Last week, following Trump's widely panned summit with the Russian president, Coats offered a wary assessment at odds with the president's desire for a closer relationship with the former head of the KGB.

"President Trump asked [national security advisor John Bolton] to invite President Putin to Washington in the fall and those discussions are already underway", she added. Trump on Tuesday said he misspoke during a joint news conference in Helsinki when he said he did not see why Russian Federation would meddle in the election.

Democratic Senate Leader Chuck Schumer criticized the president's plan to host Putin at the White House, tweeting that the election security and the American people were the "biggest losers" this week. She said at the Aspen Forum that Russian Federation is attempting to "cause chaos on both sides".

While they had met privately on three occasions in 2017, Trump opened the door to a potential White House meeting with Putin earlier this year.

How did Trump respond to Putin's suggestion?

At the summit with Trump in Helsinki, Putin proposed letting Russians observe interrogations of former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul and other Americans.

"I have President Putin; he just said it's not Russia", Trump told reporters.

On Monday, Trump appeared to accept Putin's denial of Russian interference in the United States 2016 presidential election at their joint press conference in Helsinki, sparking uproar in Washington.

On a related note, Trump on Wednesday took a complete U-turn on election meddling, and blamed Putin for Russia's alleged attempts in interfering in the 2016 USA presidential election. "That's not going to happen", US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CBN News on Thursday.

Still, from Putin's perspective, the summit put Moscow and Washington on "the path to positive change".

On Monday, Mr Trump claimed that he "didn't see any reason" why Russian Federation would be involved in USA election meddling, a comment that sparked bemusement and anger among U.S. politicians and commentators.

US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who issued the indictments against the 12 Russians last week, said on Thursday that the US would seek to warn the public in the future when it believes foreign states are trying to influence elections.
