Trump hits back at criticism following summit with Putin
US President Donald Trump has hit back after facing fierce criticism regarding his summit with Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin.
He said the meeting had gone even better than the recent Nato summit.
After talks with Mr. Putin, he contradicted his own intelligence agencies by saying he could not see any reason why Russia would meddle in the 2016 US election that he won.
The remarks have angered even some of his supporters.
In a tweet, Mr. Trump alluded to last week’s Nato summit, which ended with him saying he had secured extra money for defence – something disputed by allies in the Western military alliance.
