Putin thinks Trump believed his take on election
Russian President Vladimir Putin says he thinks President Donald Trump believed his in-person denials of Russian meddling in the U.S. presidential election.
Putin spoke Saturday after the Group of 20 summit, where he and Trump had their first face-to-face meeting.
He said Trump asked him numerous questions about Russia's alleged interference in the U.S. election during a lengthy discussion on the issue.
Putin says he thinks his answers satisfied Trump, but added that Trump's opinion would be better sought from the U.S. president himself.
Putin said he gave detailed answers, including about his conversations with representatives of the Obama administration. He added he wouldn't divulge their details as the exchanges were confidential. "He asked questions, I replied. It seemed to me that he was satisfied with the answers."
