U.S. President Donald Trump said he raised the issue of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election during a summit meeting Monday in Helsinki with Russian President Vladimir Putin. But, speaking at a joint news conference with Putin following their meeting, he declined to condemn Russia publicly. Putin denied any Russian interference and dismissed as “sheer nonsense” claims that Russia had tried to collect dirt on Trump.
