Most Americans think President Donald Trump has not been tough enough on Russia or improved the nation's role as a world leader, according to a new poll from the PBS NewsHour, NPR and Marist Poll taken after Trump's summit last week with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump have agreed to continue their "useful contacts" and may meet by year's end, a Kremlin aide said Tuesday, as tensions rise in Washington over the direction of the United States leader's Russian Federation policy.
This comes following a turbulent few weeks for Trump; initially thanks to a backlash over the now defunct family separation policy at the USA southern border, and more recently following his press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin. Pressed on the point during the news conference in Helsinki, Trump said both the us and Russian Federation were to blame for the nadir in relations.
Trump interjected during the press conference with a less than ironclad denial: "And I have to say if they had it, it would have been out long ago, ' the president said".

They are very aggressive people, they may get aggressive, and congratulations, you are in World War Three". A spokeswoman for the German Economy Ministry said: "We want to avoid a spiral of tariffs".
Press secretary Sarah Sanders later explained that the President was saying "no", he was not taking any questions, not that he felt Russian Federation was no longer targeting United States elections. Among white voters without a college degree, who largely voted for Trump in 2016, 49 percent said they approved and 47 disapproved.
Trump's ratings for handling the summit represent a weakened moment for him, but they are not markedly worse than ratings of his presidency overall in other recent polls.
Considering the history, it's unlikely they would flip to the other side, especially with the growing relations between Trump and Putin.
The U.S. intelligence community concluded after the 2016 election that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election to hurt Hillary Clinton's campaign and help Trump win.
Trump invites Putin to United States amid criticism over Helsinki meet
Trump and Putin discussed, and what agreement or agreements they reached, has been the topic of much discussion and confusion . President Donald Trump has invited the Russian leader Vladimir Putin to the White House this fall for a second get-together.
The Helsinki Summit hit headlines last week when Trump was asked about Russian interference in the U.S. election.
The poll also found low ratings for the summit, with voters saying it was a failure for the USA, 52% to 27%, and a success for Russian Federation, 73% to 8%. "This is what he does", Trump said.
While the president tweeted as recently as Tuesday that "no President has been tougher on Russian Federation than me", Congress produced the most severe sanctions yet against Russian Federation without White House support. She says the US still hopes Putin will have the 12 Russians indicted on charges brought by the Justice Department "come to the United States to prove their innocence or guilt".
