Five moments from Trump-Putin press conference

"Back then, he was a private individual, a businessman", Putin said.

Trump spoke at a joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland, after the two met for nearly two hours behind closed doors. But Trump did not strongly condemn the interference efforts, which US intelligence agencies insist did occur, including hacking of Democratic emails, the subject of last week's indictment of 12 Russians.

Asked what Putin gained from the meeting with Trump, Corker said he thought the Russian leader "gained a tremendous amount".

Mid-way through the press conference, Putin have Trump a football as a gift to represent a symbolic handing over of World Cup, which the United States will host in 2026.

Piggybacking off the Russian president's skepticism of USA law enforcement, Trump called the FBI's investigation "a disaster" for the United States, breaking with National Intelligence director Dan Coates' concerns of Russian cyber-attacks. As Trump administration consistently denigrates media, we're deeply troubled by reports that he was forcibly removed from press conference.

The nail was truly placed in the coffin of Trump's allegiance to Russian Federation when he straight up said: "I have real confidence in my intelligence people, but I must tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial".

Today both Russian Federation and the USA face a whole new set of challenges, he added.

Days before the summit, Coats had spoken publicly of his concerns about cyber threats to USA national security and singled out Russian Federation as the most aggressive foreign actor in that arena.

United States allies and political analysts were concerned about what would happen when novitiate Trump came up against Putin, a seasoned politician backed by a long career as an intelligence officer.

It was a rousing evening for the president who went through a range of emotions during France's 4-2 victory over Croatia. An umbrella was produced to keep Putin dry, but Macron looked quite content to courageous the rain.

"Trump's "We're all to blame" says it all", Kasparov tweeted.

"The probe is a disaster for our country".

"This answer by President Trump will be seen by Russian Federation as a sign of weakness and create far more problems than it solves", Graham said in a tweet. "We're talking about a Russian leader who knows all about cybersecurity - he was a Russian intelligence officer himself". We have 90 percent of the nuclear and that's not a good thing, it's not a bad thing.

"I beat Hillary Clinton easily and frankly we beat her..." I think that we're all to blame.

Mr Putin said he and Mr Trump have maintained regular contact through phone calls and meetings at global events, but "the time has come to have a thorough discussion on various worldwide problems and sensitive issues".

"Many countries are not paying what they should".

Their opening one-on-one session ran well past the scheduled 90 minutes. And he just spent two hours alone with a KGB agent. The White House wouldn't immediately confirm the timing. They met on the sidelines of world leader meetings in Germany and Vietnam a year ago. A USA grand jury indicted the Russian agents on Friday for their alleged involvement in hacking email accounts controlled by the Democratic National Committee and Hillary Clinton's campaign, casting a shadow over the Helsinki summit.

In a Twitter post last month before the Helsinki meeting was announced, Trump again appeared to cast doubt on Russian involvement. Instead, Putin landed in Helsinki nearly an hour behind schedule leaving Trump waiting to start the drive to their meeting.
