Trump, Putin Speak After Russian Leader Praises US Economy

President Trump and Russia's President Vladimir Putin talk during the family

Look at how the markets have grown.

"This indicates the confidence of investors in the American economy".

"You know that all this was invented by the people who stand in opposition to Mr. Trump to present his work as illegitimate", Putin said, echoing arguments made by Trump himself about special prosecutor Robert Mueller's probe. "This means they trust what President Trump is doing in this area".

Asked whether he was impressed by Trump's performance as USA president, Putin said he was not a United States citizen and it is U.S. citizens who should judge their president's performance.

Beyond those concerns, it's also somewhat awkward politically for the president to be seen requesting help from Putin, given the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the USA presidential election and the Trump campaign's alleged collusion.

Putin dismissed the allegations and the idea of a Russian Federation connection as "fabricated".

US Defence Secretary Rex Tillerson said he didn't expect North Korea to drop its weapons programme, but would happily even discuss the weather if it meant Washington and Pyongyang were sitting around the same table. "Acute issues of bilateral relations, as well as the situation in crisis hotspots worldwide were discussed, with an emphasis placed on settling the Korean Peninsula nuclear issue", the Russian news agency TASS reported, citing the press service as saying in a statement.

Nebenzya said North Korea won't halt its nuclear and missile programs "while it feels a direct threat to its security", and that is why Russian Federation and China have urged both sides to take steps to de-escalate the situation.

He also spoke with sympathy toward Trump, describing him as boxed in by political opposition and said that he hopes Trump still wants to improve relations with Russian Federation despite the obstacles he's faced.
