Trump's Unreported 2nd Meeting With Putin At G20 Surfaces

20 Julio 2017, 03:00 | Bibiana Flor

US President Donald Trump participated in another undisclosed secret conversation with Russian's Putin at the Hamburg summit in Germany earlier this month.

The White House has confirmed that President Trump and Mr Putin attended a dinner with G20 leaders at the recent Hamburg summit.

According to a U.S. official "during the course of the dinner, all the leaders circulated throughout the room and spoke with one another freely".

The only version of what was discussed was provided to White House officials by Mr Trump himself, as there were no other U.S. aides present at the conversation.

White House officials have said that the United States is open to returning the sites to Russian Federation, although the Obama administration had said they were being used for espionage.

Mueller is investigating possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation during the 2016 presidential election.

Congressional investigators have said they want to hear from all of those involved in the meeting.

Donald Trump "miserable" and already looking forward to the end of his father's term as President of the United States, according to a new cover story by People magazine. As Rachel noted on the show, if there's one thing administration officials should be mindful of right now, it's that undisclosed interactions between Team Trump and Putin's government is a subject of considerable interest.

CORNISH: And this is the Russian translator, right? Putin and Trump focused on pressing issues in bilateral relations, on Syria, Ukraine and North Korea along with cyber security.

USA intelligence agencies believe Moscow tried to tip the election in Mr Trump's favour, something denied by Russian Federation.

"If in fact she did accurately disclose these meetings, who at the White House knew of Mr. Kushner's and Mr. Trump Jr's multiple contacts with Russian officials before they were made public?"

Our president is tweeting, saying, "Fake news story of secret dinner with Putin is sick. Press knew!" he tweeted. They accurately described it, as the Times did, as a "private conversation" that took place at a "leaders-and-spouses dinner". He added: "The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest!" and "sinister".

However, press was not at the dinner, and the second meeting between the two presidents was only confirmed on Tuesday by the White House after other guests at the dinner had remarked privately on it.
