WASHINGTON (AP) President Donald Trump said Thursday he wants another meeting with Russias Vladimir Putin to start implementing ideas they discussed in Helsinki, casting the summit as a starting point for progress on a number of shared concerns.
Pushing back against criticism of his Putin meeting, Trump accused the news media of trying to provoke a confrontation with Moscow that could lead to war, although concerns about the meeting have been raised by a broad cross-section of Republicans and Democrats.
Trump tweeted a list of topics discussed at the summit, including terrorism, security for Israel, Mideast peace, Ukraine, North Korea and more, and wrote: There are many answers, some easy and some hard, to these problems... but they can ALL be solved!
I look forward to our second meeting so that we can start implementing some of the many things discussed, he wrote. Trump also met with Putin last year in Germany and Vietnam.
Despite bipartisan criticism, Trump pointed blame at the media, tweeting: The Fake News Media wants so badly to see a major confrontation with Russia, even a confrontation that could lead to war. They are pushing so recklessly hard and hate the fact that Ill probably have a good relationship with Putin. We are doing MUCH better than any other country!

Way to go boss. Keep meeting. Keep meeting privately. Keep their heads exploding. Keep your agenda on schedule and under budget. The nitwits can’t run psy ops in the media on 63 different sets tracks.
[Trump accused the news media of trying to provoke a confrontation with Moscow that could lead to war]
That is EXACTLY what the liberal news and the Democrats want.
In your face, MSM!
Then after the meeting the President removes the hard drive from the laptop and destroys it with a sledgehammer on national television and says "today I am using the time honored Hillary Clinton method of data encryption."
At least one main stream liberal will have a serious stroke over that ...
A lot of jaws will be hitting the floor for sure.
Go Trump Go! Ignore the enemedia and keep doing what you’re good at; MAGA!
[media wants war with Moscow]
Did the President tweet about this? Anyone?
[security for Israel, Mideast peace]
Beware the combination of these two things, Mr. President.
There’s some real bad mojo coming at the end of the Church Age regarding these things.
(my personal belief it that he doesn’t know these things)
LOL I love this guy!
Well it’s not like Putin is some Angel of God like he’s portrayed in some circles here on FR.
He’s got bad mojo all the way with what his country will do double-crossing Israel. And it appears that it will be him because I don’t see anybody else prepped to take his spot in Russia anytime soon.
Yeah, it’s hard to say when Ezekiel 38 will come. But it WILL come, that’s for sure.
In the meantime, I’m not for starting war with Russia simply over the fake liberal outrage (that’s not directed at you, simply an observation).
By no means is Russia without guilt. I certainly don’t suggest that.
But crazy McCain wants war with Russia and so do his liberal friends.
Agree with all that you wrote Brother!
