Trump's comments in the days since - he called Montenegro "very aggressive" - raised doubts about the U.S. commitment to defend alliance partners and maintain penalties on Russian Federation for its annexation of Crimea.

On July 16 in Helsinki, Putin said he had wanted Trump in the White House because he thought US-Russia ties would benefit. It later recovered most of its losses.

He appeared to misspeak again when asked by a White House reporter if Russian Federation was still targeting the U.S. and its election system, replying: "Thank you very much, no".

In Helsinki last week, Trump said he didn't "see any reason why" Russian Federation would be behind election meddling in 2016. Whereas Trump has fiercely criticized close US allies in recent months, he has offered little to no criticism of Russian actions around the world.

"During their meeting in Helsinki, the presidents reached an understanding that these useful contacts should be continued", Ushakov told reporters.

In the press conference and interviews afterward, Trump did not offer any specific details on any agreements he might have made with Putin, drawing scorn from Democrats, who sought to interview his interpreter.

And Democratic pollster Fred Yang, who conducted the survey alongside Peter Hart and Republican pollster Bill McInturff, observed that Trump's base mobilizes when he is under fire.

Despite intelligence reports confirming the interference, Trump stated at the news conference that he didn't see a reason that Russian Federation would meddle in the elections.

The Kremlin said on Tuesday it had received a US invitation for President Vladimir Putin to hold a summit with President Donald Trump in Washington at the end of this year, but said there were other chances for the two men to meet as well.
