While Donald Trump came home to criticism from left and right after his first summit with Vladimir Putin, the Russian president came home to universal praise. Putin yet again denied the allegations of Moscow's interference in the 2016 USA presidential elections, adding that Russian Federation was ready to participate in a joint probe if any real evidence was presented. Ryan says Russian Federation "remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals".
What did President Trump say?
Sen. John McCain called it "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory".

Trump has always been at odds with his own intelligence community, largely clashing over a report released by US intelligence officials concluding that Putin ordered "an influence campaign" in 2016 aimed at helping the Trump campaign and harming his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton. The only points of disagreement came when Putin gently chided Trump for withdrawing from the Iran nuclear deal and when the Russian leader, not Trump himself, explained the US position on Russia's annexation of Crimea.
The episode could alienate Republicans who looked past Trump's other mistakes - his recorded remarks about grabbing women and his refusal to denounce neo-Nazi protesters - as well as undo goodwill Trump has amassed from a strong economy, Scaramucci said. By extension, he is telling Putin and the world that he believes the shady Russian president over his own intelligence agencies.
After all, that was the ultimate goal of Russia's election meddling, US officials have assessed.
The ministry said in a statement Tuesday that it's ready for "practical implementation" of agreements reached by Trump and Putin.
The potential implications are many, including in Latvia and Ukraine where Canada has troops, and in terms of further election interference, says Fen Hampson, director of the global security and politics program at the Centre for International Governance Innovation in Waterloo, Ont.
