Trump and Putin Catch Up On the Phone, Talk Mueller Report

Really, we didn't discuss it, he said, adding they went into great detail on issues such as Venezuela, North Korea and nuclear arms control.

The Kremlin said the two sides confirmed they meant to "activate dialogue in various spheres, including strategic security".

Americans do not fully know the extent of the phone call, however, and any suggestion that Trump encouraged Putin to interfere in American elections is ludicrous.

Venezuelan President Nicolas Maduro, recognized by China and Russian Federation among numerous other countries, has accused the United States of seeking to overthrow his government and install Guaido in a bid to get hold of Venezuela's resources.

Putin and Trump also discussed the possibility of renewing the nuclear arms treaty known as New START, which is set to expire in two years.

Mr Mueller's report was finally published earlier this month after an nearly two-year investigation into Russia's attempts to sway the 2016 USA presidential election and the Kremlin's potential collusion with the Trump campaign.

The interference included both a social media campaign that favored Trump and disparaged Democrat Hillary Clinton, and the hacking of computers maintained by allies of Clinton and the subsequent releases of stolen documents.

Ultimately, Mueller's investigators did not find a criminal conspiracy between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, but they found multiple contacts. The report also did not recommend obstruction of justice charges against Trump, although it laid out potential obstructive acts. "We want to get some humanitarian aid - right now people are starving, they have no water, they have no food".

Russia's President Vladimir Putin. Sanders said on Friday that Trump simply was "relaying what President Putin said to him". She said during the call Trump reiterated the "need and importance of Russian Federation stepping up and continuing to help".

When asked about Venezuela, Sanders said that Trump reiterated a number of times during the call that the focus of the United States is to help the people of that nation.

The White House national security adviser, John Bolton, and U.S. Secretary of State Michael Pompeo both said earlier this week that the Kremlin talked Maduro out of leaving Venezuela after U.S. -backed opposition leader Juan Guaido attempted to end his regime on May 30 by calling for a military uprising.

"This administration has been tougher on Russian Federation than any previous administrations", he said, adding that the show wasn't long enough for him to rattle off election safety efforts.

Despite the president's waffling on the subject, Mueller's report about the evidence of interference was unequivocal.

Robert Mueller speaks during a news conference at the Federal Bureau of Investigation headquarters, 2008.

Putin said Pyongyang had achieved "good-faith fulfilment of its commitments" to the US related to denuclearization, which 'should be accompanied by reciprocal steps'. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo said Maduro had been ready to flee Venezuela on Tuesday but reversed his plan after Russian Federation intervened.

She added that they were also in preliminary discussions about a potential new nuclear disarmament pact between Russian Federation, the United States, and China. "The heads of state expressed satisfaction with the conversation, which was of a businesslike and constructive character".

Some liberal commentators argued that Trump's discussion with Putin might constitute collusion now.

Trump did condemn efforts by Russian Federation or any other country to interfere in America's elections during the 2016 election.
