helsinki - US President Donald Trump sees no reason to believe that Russia was trying to influence the US presidential election. He acknowledged that his own intelligence service accused the Russians, but said Russian President Vladimir Putin was very 'strong and powerful' in his denials.
Trump and Putin talked to each other in Finland for about two hours behind closed doors. Both leaders were later satisfied with the consultation. Trump spoke at a joint press conference with Putin about a 'very constructive day' and clearly wanted to improve the relationship between the countries. The alleged interference in the presidential election is one of the problems in that relationship.
Putin acknowledges that he hoped Trump would win the election, but calls the accusations 'nonsense.' The Russian leader said that Russia correctly thinks that US intelligence officials have worked with businessman and Kremlin critic Bill Browder to support the Clinton campaign. There would be $ 400 million from Browder to the campaign.
