Trump reveals why he called Putin on fourth term victory

And Now What? Russian Foreign Policy in Putin’s Fourth Term

It was not clear if President Trump, who prefers to hear briefings, read the notes provided to him, according to sources.

The announcement came after China threatened to retaliate to U.S. President Donald Trump's measures, stoking fears of a looming global trade war. Putin is also embroiled in other controversies such as the nerve agent poisoning of a former Russian double spy in the United Kingdom.

"An American president does not lead the free world by congratulating dictators on winning sham elections", said Sen.

Her comments were notably tougher on Russian Federation than those coming from the White House.

"Getting along with Russian Federation (and others) is a good thing, not a bad thing", the president wrote.

The White House chaos emerged as lawmakers heard that Russian Federation - slapped with United States sanctions over its meddling in the 2016 election - remains a menace as the country gears up for congressional polls in November.

The call to Putin was the second time this month that Trump has made an impromptu announcement that he planned to meet with a foreign leader, although his March 8 decision to hold talks with North Korea's Kim Jong Un appeared to carry more weight and has sparked a flurry of internal planning.

At the State Department this week, spokeswoman Heather Nauert said it was "no surprise" that Putin was re-elected, adding that some people were paid to turn out to vote and opposition leaders were intimidated or jailed.

White House officials did not dispute the report, but said whoever leaked it could be subject to dismissal.

"If this story is accurate, that means someone leaked the president's briefing papers".

According to the information of the source, USA president is livid that someone else in his inner circle leaked to "The Washington Post" secret details about that phone call with Putin.

It was an unusual threat. "If you don't like the guy, quit!" said Republican Senator Marco Rubio.

According to the post, advisors also suggested the president condemn Russian Federation for that attack.

Yermakov - the head of the ministry's non-proliferation and arms control department - alternated between tough talk and quips and said in response to a question from a British official: "I am ashamed for you".

He defended his call on Twitter on Wednesday afternoon. The Senate Judiciary chairman said he wouldn't comment specifically about the call, but told CNN. What he did in Georgia, what he did in Ukraine, what he did in the Baltics, in London.

Mr Trump is facing an investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller into potential links between his presidential election campaign and Russian Federation.

Johnson also agreed with an MP who suggested Putin would exploit the 2018 football World Cup in Russian Federation as Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler did the Berlin Olympics. John McCain, R-Ariz., said in a statement. The two presidents subsequently sat down together at last summer's G-20 meeting in Germany, and at an Asia-Pacific economic summit in November. It may be recalled that Putin received less than 65% of the votes polled in 2012.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel also congratulated Putin this week.

He posted: "I called President Putin of Russian Federation to congratulate him on his election victory (in past, Obama called him also)".

It was also reported the US President ignored specific warnings from his national security advisers ahead of the telephone call. Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort has pleaded not guilty to a variety of money laundering and other criminal charges.
