U.S. aims to meet deadline on reuniting migrants, government says

She says Putin's "ongoing attacks on our elections and Western democracies" deserve unanimous condemnation from the global community, "not a VIP ticket to our nation's capital".

Democrats, meanwhile, are demanding that the administration provide more information about any promises that Trump may have made to Putin during their meeting in Helsinki.

"There were suggestions, comments, thoughts by President Putin with respect to that inquiry".

That next meeting may be at the White House. "Okay. That's going to be special".

Putin had signalled after the summit with Trump that he and the US President reached several agreements.

Back in Washington a day later, amid attacks from members of both parties, Trump said he did indeed have faith in the US intelligence community's conclusions about Russian meddling, although he also said "others" might be involved.

On Thursday, after an outcry in Congress, White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders issued a statement that Trump "disagrees" with Putin's proposal to have Russian officials question Americans suspected of illegal activity by Moscow, including a former USA ambassador to Moscow, Michael McFaul.

Despite two and a half years of claims - and searches both high and low - that Russian Federation helped to elect Trump and Trump somehow colluded with Russian Federation, no concrete evidence has yet been delivered by the intelligence community or the mainstream media that such a thing occurred.

Democratic lawmakers erupted into chants of "USA!"

A federal judge last month set a July 26 deadline for the government to reunite the children and their parents, many of whom were fleeing violence in Guatemala, El Salvador and Honduras.

Conflicting messages from the White House this week added to the confusion after Trump's overseas trip, during which he appeared to draw closer to Russian Federation after alienating North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies. The Kremlin had said in April that the president had invited the Russian leader to the White House when they spoke by telephone in March.

The invitation would mark Putin's first visit to the United States since 2007, when he met with former President George W. Bush. -Russian relations are "in some ways worse than during the Cold War", but that his meeting with Trump on Monday allowed them to start on "the path to positive change".

Ambassador Anatoly Antonov revealed the discussions amid confusion and concern in the USA about what the two presidents agreed behind closed doors.
