Trump had said he and Putin discussed reducing nuclear weapons worldwide.

Democratic lawmakers have pushed for Congress to subpoena Donald Trump's interpreter, amid a growing sense of alarm over the private summit in Helsinki between the USA president and Russia's Vladimir Putin. "The president will work with his team and we'll let you know if there's an announcement on that front".

On Wednesday, Sarah Sanders wouldn't say that the Trump administration was opposed to the idea of U.S. citizens and officials, including former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, being interrogated by Russian officials.

Trump has also appeared on several occasions to question the USA intelligence findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 vote in a bid to undermine Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

The New York Times' Maggie Haberman asked Sanders if Trump would entertain Putin's proposal to question former USA ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, and busniessman Bill Browder. Already, some Republican pundits are condemning Trump.

In the survey, 42 percent of all registered voters approved of his job performance, which is consistent with averages thus far.

At a news conference with Vladimir Putin, Mr Trump said he "didn't see any reason why it would be" Russian Federation that interfered in U.S. elections. "I have President Putin".

Trump added, "We're doing everything in our power to prevent Russian interference in 2018", when midterm elections that will determine control of Congress will be held. "We want to see the notes", Senator Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told MSNBC.

Representative Andy Harris, a member of the Caucus, said: "I disregard and discount anything that involves the mainstream media press".

Sanders, who was in the room when Vega asked the question, said she interpreted it differently and was not reversing Trump's position.

Trump, facing a political uproar over his failure to confront Putin during their Helsinki summit on Monday over Russia's 2016 US election meddling, adopted his usual defiant posture, calling his critics deranged. I will tell you though: "it better not be, it better not be", Trump told CBS News.

When asked if she was reversing what the president had said, she answered: "I'm interpreting it, not reversing it". I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be".

Even then, Trump made only a narrow retreat on Tuesday, saying he misspoke a single word in Helsinki.

MICHAEL MCFAUL: The prosecutor general's spokesperson implied that I was being considered as a criminal in this investigation and that somehow in their cockamamie schemes that Bill Browder was laundering money out of Russian Federation to help the Clinton campaign and I and several other former government officials were helping him doing it.
