Trump criticizes Mueller probe, Putin denies election interference.
Both US President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin are praising their recent summit, which featured both leaders criticizing claims of Russian meddling in the US election.
When asked about it, Trump said “I think it’s a disgrace we can’t get Hillary Clinton’s 33,000 e-mails. I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.”
“The Russian state has never interfered and is not going to interfere into internal American affairs including election process,” said Putin.
The two leaders also discussed nonproliferation of nuclear weapons, an important topic considering the combined nuclear arsenals of the US and Russia dwarf the rest of the world.
