President Trump says likely to soon meet with Putin

Trump has often refrained from outright condemnation of Russian Federation and has mostly refused to comment on claims that the country tried to influence the last presidential election.

She said: "That's not simply what today's call was about".

"It was agreed to develop further bilateral contacts, including taking into account changes in the leadership of the U.S. State Department". President Donald Trump has not called and has no plans to do so at present, White House spokesman Hogan Gidley told journalists Monday.

On Sunday, Putin secured a landslide victory in a presidential election that saw him return to the Kremlin for a fourth term with a record vote share of 76.66 percent.

Outgoing Secretary of State Rex Tillerson has said it's "almost beyond comprehension" why a state actor would deploy such a unsafe substance in a public place in a foreign country where others could be exposed.

The notecards are similar to the one Trump was photographed clutching during a White House meeting with students and parents after the mass shooting at Marjory Stoneman Douglas High School in Parkland, Florida, officials said.

Hughes could welcome enforcer back for Wigan clash
Hughes will be pleased to get a first win under his belt as he looks to save Southampton's league season after the global break. Dusan Tadic's corner was stabbed goalwards by Hojbjerg and Wigan's Dan Burn couldn't react quick enough to clear off the line.

Trump himself has always been reluctant to publicly criticize Putin.

The White House said Trump limited conversation to "shared topics" on which the United States and Russian Federation could find common ground, like Ukraine, Syria, and North Korea.

"We had a very good call", Trump told reporters at the White House after the exchange, noting that the pair "will probably be meeting in the not-too distant future to discuss the arms race, which is getting out of control".

The US leader failed to mention the nerve-agent attack - despite the US issuing a statement last week, along with Britain, France and Germany, condemning Russian Federation. London has blamed Moscow for the attack, a charge Russian Federation denies.

Trump's call came at a period of heightened tensions between the two nations after the White House imposed sanctions on Russian Federation for its interference in the 2016 USA election and other "malicious cyberattacks".

"We've been very clear in the actions that we've taken that we're going to be tough on Russian Federation, particularly when it comes to areas that we feel where they've stepped out of place". They also confirmed the need for cooperation on strategic stability.

Vikings Make Siemian Trade Official
Wright, who was cut Friday, appeared in 83 games, including four playoff games during which he caught nine passes for 129 yards. Denver raced out to a 6-2 start that season but faltered late in the year, and Siemian was hampered by several injuries.

The statement says they also expressed satisfaction with the apparent easing of tensions over North Korea's weapons program.

Trump and Putin last met in Vietnam during the Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit. Russian Federation has repeatedly said it hoped for better ties with the USA under Trump. Many others, including German Chancellor Angela Merkel, sent congratulatory telegrams.

Later, at her daily press briefing, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders defended the president's handling of the call.

In a statement about the call between the two leaders, the Kremlin described diplomatic problems facing Russian Federation and the US and confirmed Putin's intent to meet with Trump. "The possibility of organizing a top-level meeting received special attention".

"As I said before, when it comes to the missiles and the planes and all of the military equipment, there is nobody that even comes close to us in terms of the technology and the quality of the equipment", the president continued. Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has pleaded not guilty to a variety of money laundering and other criminal charges.
