At a minimum, President Trump deserves credit for saying what he should have said to Vladimir Putin, that he accepts the findings of US intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered with the 2016 election.
The former US ambassador to Russian Federation said as much in a tweet that came in response to President Donald Trump, on a day when he said "no" after a reporter asked whether Russian Federation is still targeting the United States.

When asked if she was reversing what the president had said, she answered: "I'm interpreting it, not reversing it".
The Russian leader praised Trump's mediation efforts in North Korea, but slammed his decision to pull out of the global accord curbing Iran's nuclear activities.

They have also enjoyed a few couples trips together, including visiting Mexico, Africa and India, where they met the Dalai Lama. Every year, I leave feeling so inspired! "That's right, we have to mention the elephant in the room".
