Mega deals at stake US gives India waiver from sanctions

Most Americans think President Donald Trump has not been tough enough on Russia or improved the nation's role as a world leader, according to a new poll from the PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist Poll taken after Trump's summit last week with Russian President Vladimir Putin. She also called for protection of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation of Russian interference.

A bare majority of 51 per cent agreed that 'the Russian government has compromising information about President Trump, ' according to a new Quinnipiac University poll, taken following the Helsinki summit where Putin got asked point blank whether he held leverage over the USA president.

Putin acknowledged he wanted Trump to win the 2016 presidential race during a joint news conference with Trump after their July 16 summit in Helsinki. The poll also showed that only 51 percent of Republicans said that they believed the United States intelligence agencies' assessment that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential election, and 42 percent said that simply did not believe what USA intelligence analysts believe about the Russian interference.

He later told Fox News" Chris Wallace in an interview: "We don't have anything on them and there can't be anything on them'. Among white voters without a college degree, who largely voted for Trump in 2016, 49 percent said they approved and 47 disapproved. "They definitely don't want Trump!"

The U.S. intelligence community and a U.S. special counsel have concluded that Russian Federation used a campaign of spreading propaganda on social media and hacking Democratic documents to try to aid Trump's candidacy and hurt his opponent, Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton. Putin denied meddling in the election.

Putin should have given Trump the chance to tell US media that he had extracted concessions from him in a "giveaway game", staying focused on the longer-term goal of stabilizing ties between Moscow and Washington, Markov said on his Facebook page.

It is a rare admission by the U.S. president of Russia's continued attempts to sway American elections.

Putin's top foreign policy aide Yury Ushakov said that several days after the Helsinki meeting the Kremlin received a USA proposal to organise a new summit in Washington "at the end of the year".

Mr Putin said at the summit he would allow the U.S. to interrogate the officials, provided Russian Federation could do the same in America, something Mr Trump called an "interesting idea", to the great concern of senior United States security advisers. The White House later tried to walk back the claim.

Since then, Russian forces backing the Assad regime and USA forces battling the Islamic State in Syria since 2014 have maintained an uneasy detente with both sides attempting to keep out of each other's paths in the country. Critics accused Nr Trump of siding with Russian Federation over his own country by failing to so.
