The US president said that he had a great meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, and lamented that the liberal American media are trying to present these contacts in a negative light by all means.

Trump and Putin met for the first official summit in Helsinki, Finland on July 16.

On July 19, the US president expressed hope to have his next meeting with Putin in Washington so that the two leaders could begin to implement the ideas that they had discussed during the Helsinki summit.

The two presidents had a one-on-one private conversation discussing the Syrian refugee crisis, the situation in Ukraine, denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula and Russia's alleged meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.
