Trump And Putin Discuss Forming A Cyber Security Unit

Trump And Putin Discuss Forming A Cyber Security Unit”

But after finding out that he, in fact, did, they then switched to questioning whose account they should believe.

Moscow has denied any interference, and Trump says his campaign did not collude with Russia. A Democratic congressman, Adam Schiff of California, says expecting Russia to be a credible partner in any cybersecurity initiative "would be dangerously naive". Liberal and conservative media pundits in the United States provided extremely contradicting spins to the meeting.

Describing his two-hour-long meeting with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin in Hamburg on the sidelines of the G20 Summit on Friday as successful, Trump, in a series of tweets on his return from Hamburg, said he discussed a series of issues with Putin. If you are a big corporation with good climate policies that has shied away from engaging politically, it's time to engage.

The suggestion immediately raised eyebrows and suspicions from both American and allied intelligence officials and lawmakers. That is not just my view; that is the view of an overwhelming majority of Americans and most Republican members of Congress. After all, tough new sanctions on Russia just passed the Senate nearly unanimously. "To forgive and forget when it comes to Putin regarding cyberattacks is to empower Putin, and that's exactly what he's doing".

Of the idea of teaming with Russia on cybersecurity, Graham said, "It's not the dumbest idea I've ever heard, but it's pretty close".

Many are not aware that it was the G20 that President Bush turned to. But it's hypocritical of them to whine about that when they had/have colleagues at MSNBC who claimed, on air, that President Bush lied to get us into a war in Iraq.

Lavrov, following Putin and Trump's first face-to-face meeting, held an on-camera briefing that was streamed live on Russian media.

"Discussions may still take place", Sanders said, after noting the "need to have conversations with our adversaries".

Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, was asked on CNN's "State of the Union" why Trump would not state, publicly and explicitly, that Russia had meddled in the U.S. election.

"Mr Trump's former presidential rival was referring to Syrian President Bashar Assad and his regime's use of chemical weapons against its own citizens". "It can't-but a ceasefire can, & did!"

"Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded and safe", Trump wrote early on Sunday.

The political points he might have earned were quickly knocked off the board as he and a string of top aides acquiesced to the Kremlin's claims that Trump accepted Putin's denial of election interference. In his email, Goldstone said that the "Crown prosecutor of Russia" offered to provide the information on Clinton to the Trump campaign in a meeting with Aras Agalarov.

Doug Heye, the former communications chief to former House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, noted that Trump could "be very influential" in pressuring several GOP opponents of the current bill who represent states he won handily in 2016 if he headed to those states to boost the health care bill, similarly to how President Barack Obama rallied support for the Affordable Care Act before it passed.

She said of the landmark talks between the two men in Hamburg: "Nobody, except the participants of that meeting, knows how that proposal was formulated and how President Trump reacted". The start for that is a ceasefire in Syria, but we have witnessed numerous times over the past years how shaky announced ceasefires in Syria have been. "Now it is time to move forward in working constructively with Russia!" This aggressiveness was evident in Russia's efforts to influence the 2016 US election, and we assess that only Russia's senior-most officials could have authorised the 2016 US election-focused data thefts and disclosures, based on the scope and sensitivity of the targets. I am glad that Trump has turned out to be an adult in this situation. The two world leaders, whose alleged relationship has sparked a raging controversy, talked for over two hours during their meeting, only attended by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov and translators.

"Something has to be done about it", Trump argued ominously.
