U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin blamed forces within the United States on Thursday for marring what they called the success of their first summit, with Trump saying he looked forward to their second meeting.

The president's most recent comments about the press come after he was criticized by news editorial boards, lawmakers and others for appearing to accept Putin's "strong" and "powerful" denial on Russia's 2016 USA election meddling over the assessment of the American intelligence community.

Within the (several) emojis in Hayden's response, he said: "I'm not laughing". Putin said United States intelligence officers helped Browder.

"But no one expected that", Mr Putin said.

"It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome!" the president wrote.

"He has an interesting idea", Trump said, adding later: "I think that's an incredible offer".

"We're going to have Pompeo come in next week, and I think we'll be much better informed when that is over, as to what the intentions are, where they're trying to take this relationship, was there anything that was agreed to privately in those meetings". He backed away from his public undermining of American intelligence agencies, saying he misspoke when he said he saw no reason to believe Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 USA election. "Because there is no rule of law, as I said, in Russian Federation".

A day earlier, Sanders said the White House was entertaining the proposal raised by Putin in his summit talks with Trump on Monday.

He also lashed out at Europe and US-dominated North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, saying Russian Federation would hit back with an "equivalent response" to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation bases near Russia's borders and other "aggressive steps", but did not elaborate on his comments.

President Donald Trump spoke to members of the media as he met with members of Congress in the Cabinet Room of the White House, Tuesday, in Washington.

"They are feeding millions of their people stories", he said. "Trump is bruised by the idea that Russian election meddling taints his victory, those close to him say, and can't concede the fact that Russia did try to interfere in the election, regardless of whether it impacted the outcome".

It was the second time since the summit that Trump and the White House have blamed a misstatement or misunderstanding for the furore over Russian Federation.

Critics have accused Mr Trump of siding with Russian Federation over his own country by failing to criticize Moscow for what USA intelligence agencies previous year described as Russia's election interference in an attempt to sow discord, aid Trump's candidacy and disparage Trump's Democratic opponent Hillary Clinton.

Trump was condemned for telling a room full of journalists that he accepted Putin's denials of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

Mr Putin faces no serious political opposition at home, and leads a country that has never experienced a democratic transfer of power.
