Philipp Thiel

I'm afraid about the future. I don't expect a third world war but maybe something like that, with North Korea, Turkey, [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, Trump.feedback

Vladimir Putin

Ramping up military hysteria in such conditions is senseless; it's a dead end. It could lead to a global, planetary catastrophe and a huge loss of human life. There is no other way to resolve the North Korean nuclear issue, save that of peaceful dialogue.feedback

Vladimir Putin

I consider the presence of peacekeepers – one could call them not peacekeepers, but people who ensure the safety of the OSCE mission – to be completely appropriate. It would help resolve the problem in eastern Ukraine.feedback

Vladimir Putin

[The United States] has committed an obvious violation of property rights. So, for starters, I would advise the Foreign Ministry to take the matter to court. We'll see how efficient the much-praised American judiciary is.feedback

Vladimir Putin

But we will not do this yet. Let us see how the situation develops further.feedback

Vladimir Putin

Strictly speaking, if we talk about complete parity, there [would] be not 455 diplomats in Moscow, but 155 less. So, we reserve the right to make a decision about this amount of US diplomats in Moscow too, but we will not do that yet, we will see how the situation will be further developing.feedback

Vladimir Putin

It's hard to deal with people who confuse Austria and Australia, but there's nothing you can do about this.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

Because we do not react to such (questions about) business themes, and this is not our job, we left this matter without a response.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

I can confirm that among the mass of emails there was an email from Mr. Michael Cohen. This really happened. We cannot discuss the hundreds and thousands of various requests from different countries we get with President Putin.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

I confirm that among the general mass of emails, also came such an email from Mr Michael Cohen. That really happened.feedback

Nancy Pelosi

President Trump's kowtowing to Vladimir Putin is endangering our national security and emboldening a dangerous tyrant. What do the Russians have on President Trump that he would flirt with lifting sanctions and weakening NATO?feedback

Nancy Pelosi

I want to know what the Russians have on Donald Trump. I think we have to have an investigation by the FBI into his financial, personal and political connections to Russia, and we want to see his tax returns, so we can have truth in the relationship between Putin, whom he admires, and Donald Trump….feedback

Chelsea Clinton

[My husband] Marc & I visited Russia as tourists in 2006-Tretyakov, Hermitage, Pushkin, Tolstoy's home, Novodevichy, public parts of Kremlin & great food.feedback

Clint Watts

Trump's claims to have nothing to do with Russia are clearly false with revelations Cohen emailed the Kremlin directly to gain support for a Trump Tower Moscow. Trump's laudatory comments of Putin came at times when Trump's companies also sought Kremlin-assisted business help.feedback

Michael Cohen

Over the past few months I have been working with a company based in Russia regarding the development of a Trump Tower – Moscow project in Moscow City. Without getting into lengthy specifics. the communication between our two sides has stalled. As this project is too important, I am hereby requesting your assistance. I respectfully request someone, preferably you, contact me so that I might discuss the specifics as well as arranging meetings with the appropriate individuals. I thank you in advance for your assistance and look forward to hearing from you soon.feedback

Mark N. Katz

He really seems to have had some expectations that Trump would be more "reasonable" than Obama. I can't help but feel, then, that Putin must be disappointed that his Trump gambit has failed.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I was just speaking to the Secretary (of State Rex Tillerson) and we're talking about coming up with an answer ... by September 1st we'll have a response.feedback

Michael McFaul

Cutting our staff by 755 people will do tremendous damage to our diplomatic mission in Russia. That the president does not appreciate this obvious fact suggests that he does not understand what embassies do in the pursuit of American interests.feedback

Donald J. Trump

There are a lot of killers. We've got a lot of killers. What, do you think our country is so innocent?feedback

Nicholas Burns

As a Foreign Service veteran, I find it lamentable that our great career diplomats are treated with such disrespect by their President. A shameful statement by Pres. (president) Trump. He justifies mistreatment of US diplomats by (Russian president Vladimir) Putin. If he was joking, it shows his true character.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

I want to thank him because we're trying to cut down on payroll.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

Unfortunately, it's a totally unfounded and unworkable way of thinking about the world, let alone running U.S. foreign policy.feedback

Evelyn Farkas

It is outrageous that he would thank Putin for anything, given everything Putin has done to attack American sovereignty and how poorly the Russian government has treated American personnel posted in Russia. The president appears completely determined to find no fault with anything Putin does. What if Putin threatened Guam with a military attack?feedback

Nicholas Burns

If he was joking, he should know better. If he wasn't, it's unprecedented. A president has never defended the expulsion of our diplomats.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I do respect him. I respect a lot of people, that doesn't mean I'm going to get along with him.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I want to thank him because we're trying to cut down our payroll and as far as I'm concerned I'm very thankful that he let go of a large number of people. There's no real reason for them to go back.feedback

Garry Kasparov

The two leaders' wishes for closer relations have been thwarted -- for now.feedback

Stephen Colbert

As of Friday, Donald Trump is on a 17-day vacation at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey. He's there to relax after months of grueling golf at Mar-A-Lago. The president swears he's not taking it easy. Meetings and calls? Trump has to do all that during his vacation? Man, I would not want to work for Vladimir Putin. Over the weekend, footage leaked of the president taking one of his high level meetings, a summit of New Jersey's top bridesmaids. He's definitely running.feedback

Seva Gunitsky

[Trump's comments are] oddly similar to the Russian response. MFA's focus on 'certain circles' signals they're still appealing to Trump's distrust of Congress/deep state – and he agreed.feedback

Donald J. Trump

In its haste to pass this legislation, the Congress included a number of clearly unconstitutional provisions.feedback

Sarah Huckabee Sanders

Right now we're reviewing our options, and when we have something to say on it, we'll let you know. We'll let you know when that's going to happen.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

We are continuing to work on this issue. We expect our American counterparts to make the right choice.feedback

Michael McFaul

I don't think they are going to walk away from that just yet. I believe that Putin still believes there might be something he can do with Trump.feedback

Edward Fishman

This bill doesn't preclude him from issuing tougher sanctions. That doesn't make any sense.feedback

Vladimir Putin

This goes beyond all reasonable bounds. And now these sanctions -- they are also absolutely unlawful from the point of view of international law.feedback

Sauli Niinisto

I do not quite agree with you that the issue is about imposing sanctions or adhering to U.S. laws. I understand it is the suspicions about the American election process that lie behind this. That is why the United States is proposing sanctions.feedback

Vladimir Putin

At a certain moment we will have to respond. It is impossible to put up forever with such boorishness toward our country.feedback

Dmitry Peskov

These contacts do not require any authorization from the Kremlin and they were not carried out on behalf of the Kremlin.feedback

Ben Cardin

A nearly united Congress is poised to send [Russian] President [Vladimir] Putin a clear message on behalf of the American people and our allies, and we need President Trump to help us deliver that message.feedback

Anthony Scaramucci

We're going to focus and refine the messaging from the White House. He's one of the most effective communicators that has ever been born, and so we're going to make sure to get that message out directly to the American people. He basically said to me, Hey, you know, this is, maybe they did it, maybe they didn't do it. The mainstream media position on this, that they interfered in the election. It actually in his mind, what are you guys suggesting? You're going to delegitimize his victory?feedback

Dan Coats

There is no dissent. They are trying to undermine Western democracy.feedback

Ben Cardin

I believe the proposed changes to the bill have helped to clarify the intent of members of Congress as well as express solidarity with our closest allies in countering Russian aggression and holding the Kremlin accountable for their destabilizing activities. A nearly united Congress is poised to send President Putin a clear message on behalf of the American people and our allies, and we need President Trump to help us deliver that message.feedback

Vladimir Zhirinovsky

Victory for Trump would be a gift to humanity. But if Hillary Clinton wins it will be the last U.S. president ever.feedback

Vladimir Zhirinovsky

Most Americans should choose Trump because men have been leading for millions of year. You can't take the risk of having one of the richest, most powerful countries led by a woman president. Men all round the world sometimes say such things that are just for their comrades. We must only consider his business (and political) qualities.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The fact that President Putin and I discussed a Cyber Security unit doesn't mean I think it can happen. It can't-but a ceasefire can, [and] did!feedback

Sergey Lavrov

By the way, we provided to the US on that very day when the presidents met in Hamburg, our military provided to the Pentagon our objective data we received from our radars located just on the border with North Korea. And, according to that data, it is not an intercontinental missile. But the Americans say they have their own calculations.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

They might have met even much more than just three times. Maybe they went to the toilet together, that was a fourth time.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

There is also a room where they get together before an event starts. They cannot arrive all at the same time on the bus. After the dinner was over…I was not there…President Trump apparently went to pick up his wife and spent some minutes with President Putin…so what?feedback

Sergey Lavrov

I cannot say that we are not considering a threat what is going on with the Korean peninsula because of what North Korea is doing in gross violation of the Security Council resolutions. We do not believe in regime change anywhere. I hear very enthusiastic voices in the United States, including in some parts of this administration, that the patience has been over and they must do something because the threat is growing and growing, intercontinental ballistic missile was launched … And those who keep those scenarios in their minds, I believe they are not responsible as politicians.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

There is also a room where they get together before an event starts. They cannot arrive all at the same time on the bus. They "might have met even much more than just three times.feedback

Stephen Colbert

The White House has downplayed this meeting, calling it a brief conversation at the end of dinner. Brief, because after all how long does it take to give someone your room key? Gentlemen, if your collusion lasts longer than an hour, please consult the FBI.feedback

Samantha Bee

I wonder where so many Americans got that concern. It's shocking that so many dead people would vote for Hillary considering she probably killed them in the first place. His new commission introduced themselves with a friendly get-to-know-you letter to all 50 secretaries of state.feedback

Trevor Noah

Maybe we've been parenting Trump the wrong way. Because clearly, if we tell him to stay away from that bad boy Vlad, we're going to push him right into his arms. By the way, that bad boy knows the trouble he's causing, because just listen to how he trolled the US.feedback

Trevor Noah

This is genius when you think about. Every other resistance movement should've done the same thing. You just tie yourself to a popular fad and make it look like it's bigger than it is. But it turns out, fidget spinners aren't the only thing Russia is toying with. I just don't understand why he would do this. If the perception of you is that you're colluding with Russia, just don't have a private conversation with the president of Russia. Like, if there are rumors that you have sex with sheep, even if they are false, just stay away from sheep for a while.feedback

Samantha Bee

Since the commission wants to know so much about us, let's find a little about them, starting with vice-chair Kris Kristofferson Kobach. Back in the 80s when his Harvard classmates were getting laid and protesting apartheid, Kris was writing an anti-divestment thesis under the tutelage of Samuel Huntington, an adviser to the white South African regime who favored enlightened despotism.feedback

Samantha Bee

How the fuck do you go to Harvard, Yale and Oxford and come out a birther? Tucker Carlson is right. College is stupid! And Kobach's voter fraud snipe-hunt even earned him a place in the very exclusive too-out-there-for-Fox-News club. Guys like this have been playing the long game, methodically chipping away at the Voting Rights Act since the moment LBJ signed it and then left the room to expose himself to the steno pool. And now, this president has handed them the key to the candy shop.feedback

Trevor Noah

That's exactly what we're worried about. Remember the last time he spoke with the Russians? He accidentally spilled Israeli state secrets. We know he'll say anything to make him look cool. Putin will be like, So Donald, how many nuclear submarines do you have now?, Let me tell you Vlad, we have literally millions of submarines.feedback

Samantha Bee

Who is he besides a man whose name sounds like it's twirling its mustache?feedback

Stephen Colbert

How stupid can you be? You're in the middle of what could be the worst scandal in US history. People think you colluded with the president of a hostile foreign power. Then you go out of your way to meet with him again and you don't tell anybody? That's like if OJ does get out on parole and immediately goes glove shopping. But here's why it's hard. He lies about everything. He lies about crowd size, voter fraud, til death do us part. This might actually be a nothing-burger, but every time they tell us it's a nothing-burger, it turns out to be a juicy quarter-pounder with sleaze.feedback

Samantha Bee

And just like that, there goes Russia's reputation as a fun country. The reason Russia is banning fidget spinners is because at an anti-Putin rally a bunch of people were giving out free fidget spinners. So Putin was like, Fidget spinners means you're against me.feedback

Michael McFaul

In spending so much time with Putin he was not spending time with other leaders. Both regarding substance and symbolism, that's important. Obama used a Russian interpreter a few times for pull-asides. Obama always prepared for pull-asides. In a 'prebrief' beforehand, we would discuss what to say, what to watch for, what to push.feedback

John McLaughlin - Central Intelligence Agency

If you remember that meeting that he had in the Oval Office with a couple of Russian diplomats where he slipped on some intelligence and revealed some sources that he shouldn't have revealed, I'm not sure if he is familiar enough with sources and methods on intelligence to have sort of a brief conversation with a Russian president at this point.feedback

Michael McFaul

It's important to have someone taking notes so that the U.S. government knows what commitments the president made to Putin. Whatever the president says becomes policy, and is very difficult to walk back. But it's hard for lower level officials to follow that policy if they don't know what he said.feedback

James Stavridis

Worst of all, this further divides our politics and injects confusion [and] thus places us at significant risk as a result.feedback

David Cohen

Trump has no way of knowing whether what he said was accurately translated. Nor does he know whether what Putin told him was accurately translated.feedback

Ian Bremmer - Eurasia Group

There were a lot of empty seats. Donald Trump got up from the table and sat down with Putin for about an hour. It was very animated and very friendly. Putin's translator was translating. I found out about it because people were startled.feedback

Ian Bremmer - Eurasia Group

The people I talked to weren't timing. It wasn't five minutes. Brief implies it's five minutes or 10 minutes.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I said: 'Look, we can't – we can't have – now, he said 'absolutely not' twice. What do you do? End up in a fistfight with somebody, OK?feedback

Heather Conley

The problem is you didn't have a third party there to say, No, this is what was said. It is critically important for there to be a record of what was assured, promised, discussed.feedback

Steffen Seibert

The chancellor, in any case, was not surprised or confused by anything.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

Russians make up a pretty disproportionate cross-section of a lot of our assets. We see a lot of money pouring in from Russia.feedback

Ian Bremmer - Eurasia Group

Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is 'sick.' All G 20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew!feedback

Ian Bremmer - Eurasia Group

The Fake News is becoming more and more dishonest! Even a dinner arranged for top 20 leaders in Germany is made to look sinister!feedback

Ian Bremmer - Eurasia Group

I've never in my life seen a relationship between two major countries where the interests are so misaligned while the leaders are so buddy-buddy. It doesn't add up. Trump has been inconsistent on his China policy, he's been inconsistent on his Nato policy. On any foreign policy issue he's been on both sides. Except Russia. It doesn't make sense. The fact he was willing to do this in front of global leaders shows he just doesn't care how America is perceived.feedback

Jen Psaki

The problem with the administration's explanation that 'this is normal' is that is Putin, and this is Russia. Not only has Russia been an adversary for some time, but this is a guy who directed an intervention into our election when Trump was elected. Clearly, it's different.feedback

Ian Bremmer - Eurasia Group

Never in my life as a political scientist have I seen two countries – major countries – with a constellation of national interests that are as dissonant, while the two leaders seem to be doing everything possible to make nice and be close to each other. Pretty much everyone at the dinner thought this was really weird, that here is the president of the United States, who clearly wants to display that he has a better relationship personally with President Putin than any of us, or simply doesn't care. They were flummoxed, they were confused and they were startled.feedback

Ian Bremmer - Eurasia Group

It's very clear that Trump's best single relationship in the G20 is with Putin. US allies were surprised, flummoxed, disheartened. You've got Trump in the room with all these allies and who's the one he spends time with? I sat on this for days hoping they would talk about it. I knew last week. It didn't happen. I'm an analyst; I'm not in the business of breaking news.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He didn't say that. No. He said, I think he accepted it, but you'll have to ask him.' That's a big difference.feedback

Donald J. Trump

What do you do? End up in a fistfight with somebody, okay? I'm not saying it wasn't Russia.feedback

Chris Ulrich

Trump looks like he's walking over to greet Putin, so he is giving away his power in that moment. Trump re-established the balance by grabbing Putin's elbow: This is support and is also a power move. Think about in a job interview, you walk over to the boss and shake their hand. We saw Hillary Clinton do this in the first debate with Trump: great moment for him, as he looked presidential. Later after that, Trump re-establishes the power with Putin with touch and a pat on the back – supportive, as almost to say, good job,' like Trump is in charge.feedback

Trevor Noah

So, the new conspiracy theory is that Putin actually wanted Hillary to win. And that's why he colluded with Trump Jr? There is no problem President Trump can't blame on Hillary. He'll be in bed, like, I can't believe Hillary couldn't get it up tonight. Lock her up.'.feedback

Trevor Noah

After a week-long tirade on Twitter, President Trump last night finally decided to speak with words to an actual human being about the rumors of Russian collusion. I say human being, but it was actually conservative pastor and Jeff Sessions' troll cousin Pat Robertson. Well, I'm sold. For the record, Vladimir Putin wasn't just a master KGB agent for 16 years and one of the Soviet Union's top spies in Berlin. But Trump knew he could break Putin by simply asking him the same question twice. That was his plan?feedback

Mary Dejevsky

The French president showed elegance and discretion with Trump, as he has with Putin. His diplomatic skill shows up Theresa May’s ineptitude• Mary Dejevsky is a writer and broadcaster. Within hours of Air Force One touching down in Paris there was fresh confirmation that no foreign visit by this US president comes without its risks. Betraying what the kindest interpretation would describe as an old-fashioned eye for the ladies – let’s face it, he is 71 – Donald Trump had strayed from the conventional introductions to compliment his host’s wife, Brigitte, on her figure. He then turned to her husband, the president of France, to remark: “She’s in such good physical shape. Beautiful, isn’t she beautiful?”.feedback

Stuart Stevens

It's like being raised in a church and someone says, Actually, no, you're a Buddhist.feedback

Stuart Stevens

The role of the Republican Party has been to tell the truth about what Russia and the Soviet Union was, not what it was pretending to be. Now some conservatives have gotten into the 'let's give Russia the benefit of the doubt' business.feedback

Rush Limbaugh

My guess is that Trump voters would say: 'Hey, you know what? I kind of like the fact that Putin's endorsed Trump,' . At least Putin's killing terrorists. At least Putin's made an enemy out of ISIS. We don't seem to be able to do that. He's looking like a real man.feedback

Ron Wyden

How is it was plausible that nobody told then-candidate Trump about it? We´ve got to ask about this. We´ve got to get to the bottom of it.feedback

Fareed Zakaria

The president’s rosy attitude toward the historic U.S. enemy seems out of line with his worldview.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I said to him, were you involved with the meddling in the election? He said, absolutely not. I was not involved.' He was very strong on it. I then said to him again, in a totally different way, were you involved with the meddling?' He said, I was not – absolutely not'. What I said, I asked him, were you involved?' He said, very strongly – said to him a second time – totally different – 'were you involved?' Because we can't let that happen. And I mean whether it's Russia or anybody else, we can't let there be even a scintilla of doubt when it comes to an election.feedback

Donald J. Trump

[W]hen I want a strong military, you know she wouldn't have spent the money on military. When I want tremendous energy, we're opening up coal, we're opening up natural gas, we're opening up fracking, all the things that he would hate, but nobody ever mentions that.feedback

Vladimir Putin

The Trump that you see on TV is very different than the real Trump. He perfectly understands whom he is talking to and answers questions quickly. I think personal relations were established.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I said, Did you do it?' And he said, No, I did not. Absolutely not.' I then asked him a second time in a totally different way. He said, Absolutely not.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I'm not saying it wasn't Russia. What I'm saying is that we have to protect ourselves no matter who it is. Whether it's Russia or anybody else, we can't let there be even a scintilla of doubt when it comes to an election.feedback

Donald J. Trump

President George W. Bush originally negotiated the South Korea trade deal in 2007.feedback

Donald J. Trump

There are many things that I do that are the exact opposite of what he (Putin) would want.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Yeah, I think we get along very well and I think that's a good thing, that's not a bad thing. People said, Oh they shouldn't get along.' Well, who are the people that are saying that? I think we get along very, very well. We are a tremendously powerful nuclear power, and so are they. It doesn't make sense not to have some kind of a relationship. And that's why I say, why would he want me? Because from day one I wanted a strong military, he doesn't want to see that.feedback

Richard Cohen

Failure to make the case will surely be used by Trump and his legion of useful idiots into a blanket exoneration.feedback

Andrew McCarthy

Trump’s relationship with Vladimir Putin’s regime should be examined — and not in a vacuum.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

If it's what you say, I love it. If we made a temporary deal, I think it would be a great thing for people, but it's really up to him. Obamacare is a disaster. The numbers are out. It's exploding like I said it would. So basically, if we could do a one-year deal or a two-year deal as a temporary measure, you'll have block granting ultimately to the states, which is what the Republicans want. That really is a repeal and replace.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

Veselnitskaya "stated that she had information that individuals connected to Russia were funding the Democratic National Committee and supporting Mrs. Clinton. Her statements were vague, ambiguous and made no sense. No details or supporting information was provided or even offered. It quickly became clear that she had no meaningful information.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

So what I keep hearing about that he would have rather had Trump, I think 'probably not.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Everyone here is talking about why John Podesta refused to give the DNC server to the FBI and the CIA. Disgraceful!feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

We are the most powerful country in the world and we are getting more and more powerful because I'm a big military person. As an example, if Hillary had won, our military would be decimated. That's why I say, why would he want me? Because from day one I wanted a strong military, he doesn't want to see that. There are many things that I do that are the exact opposite of what he (Putin) would want.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

Look. Something happened and we have to find out what it is, because we can't allow a thing like that to happen to our election process. Somebody did say if he did do it you wouldn't have found out about it. Which is a very interesting point. It's really the one question I wish I would have asked Putin: Were you actually supporting me?feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

I think many people would have held that meeting. It was a 20-minute meeting, I guess, from what I'm hearing. Many people, and many political pros, said everybody would do that. In retrospect, I probably would have done things a little differently.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

People said, Oh, they shouldn't get along. Well, who are the people that are saying that? I think we get along very, very well. We are a tremendously powerful nuclear power, and so are they. It doesn't make sense not to have some kind of a relationship.feedback

Hope Hicks

It never happened. There was no communication between the campaign and any foreign entity during the campaign.feedback

Angela Merkel

You are familiar with the American position, you know that unfortunately – and I deplore this – the United States of America left the climate agreement, or rather announced their intention of doing this, so what becomes clear in this declaration is the dissenting view of the United States. But I am very gratified to note that the other 19 member-states of G20 say that the Paris agreement is irreversible, that we feel committed to what we agreed on and that it is to be implemented as quickly as possible.feedback

Svetlana Lukash

President Putin proposed forming a working group. This does not mean that it should start working immediately, virtually tomorrow. Nobody, except the participants of that (Hamburg) meeting, knows how that proposal was formulated and how President Trump reacted. But this does not mean that there won't be cooperation between the two nations in this sphere in any form which suits them both.feedback

Nikki Haley

Everybody knows that Russia meddled in our elections,'. This is Russia trying to save face.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

You know, the past, I don't know if we will ever come to an agreement, obviously with our Russian counterparts on that. I think the important thing is how do we assure that this doesn't happen again. In all candidness, we did not expect an answer other than the one we received.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded... and safe. The G20 summit was a great success for the US. Explained that the US must fix the many bad trade deals it has made.feedback

Chris Uhlmann - ABC

He was an uneasy, lonely, awkward figure at this gathering, and you got the strong sense that some of the leaders are trying to find the best way to work around him. We learned that Donald Trump has pressed fast-forward on the decline of the United States as a global leader. He managed to isolate his nation, to confuse and alienate his allies and to diminish America.feedback

Richard Haass

Overall, the trip embraced nationalism much more than internationalism. There was further rejection of free trade, nothing on climate change, disrespect of free media, and a pro forma pushback versus Russian interference in our politics.feedback

Nikki Haley

They're doing this across multiple continents. And they're doing this in a way that they're trying to cause chaos within the countries.feedback

Nikki Haley

Everybody knows that Russia meddled in our elections. Everybody knows that they're not just meddling in the United States' election.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

The president pushed Putin on multiple occasions – Putin denied involvement, as I believe he has done in the past. The two agreed this was a substantial hindrance to the ability to move the Russian, U.S. relationship forward. Do we have the same objectives in mind? By and large, our objectives are exactly the same, but how we get there, we each have a view.feedback

Lindsey Graham

It's not the dumbest idea I've ever heard, but its pretty close. He gave a really good speech in Poland, President Trump did, and he had, what I think, is a disastrous meeting with President Putin. When it comes to Russia, he's got a blind spot. And to forgive and forget when it comes to Putin regarding cyber-attacks is to empower Putin and that's exactly what he's doing. There's only one person in Washington – that I know of – that has any doubt about what Russia did in our election, and it's President Trump.feedback

Vladimir Putin

He asked questions, I replied. It seemed to me that he was satisfied with the answers.feedback

Donald J. Trump

To move forward in working constructively with Russia! Putin & I discussed forming an impenetrable Cyber Security unit so that election hacking, & many other negative things, will be guarded and safe. Questions were asked about why the CIA & FBI had to ask the DNC 13 times for their SERVER, and were rejected, still don't have it. Fake News said 17 intel agencies when actually 4 (had to apologize). Why did Obama do NOTHING when he had info before election?feedback

Lindsey Graham

He's doing a good job in Afghanistan, North Korea and ISIL. But when it comes to Russia, he's got a blind spot. And to forgive and forget when it comes to Putin regarding cyber-attacks is to empower Putin and that's exactly what he's doing.feedback

Ash Carter

When confronted with something wrong, they ask for U.S. intelligence -- old trick -- and propose a working group, in this case on cyber. But this is like the guy who robbed your house proposing a working group on burglary.feedback

Steven Mnuchin

You know, we're not going to make comments about what other people say. President Trump will be happy to make statements himself about that.feedback

Lindsey Graham

He is literally the only person that I know of that has any doubt about what Russia did in 2016. The more he talks about this, the more he throws our intelligence communities under the bus.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The G 20 Summit was a great success for the U.S. - Explained that the U.S. must fix the many bad trade deals it has made. Will get done! ... I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election. He vehemently denied it. I've already given my opinion ... We negotiated a ceasefire in parts of Syria which will save lives. Now it is time to move forward in working constructively with Russia!feedback

Ash Carter

I've seen all this going back to Russian – Soviet days. When confronted with something they've done wrong, they ask for US intelligence – old trick.feedback

Steven Mnuchin

He focused on the cease-fire in Syria, which is a major accomplishment. He talked about Ukraine and he talked about North Korea, so this was a very substantive meeting. Why would President Trump broadcast exactly what he said in the meeting? Strategically that makes no sense. He's made it very clear how he feels.feedback

Vladimir Putin

I believe it would not be entirely appropriate on my part to disclose details of my discussion with Mr Trump. He asked, I answered him. He asked pointed questions, I answered them. It seemed to me that he was satisfied with those answers.feedback

Vladimir Putin

(Trump) asked a lot of questions on this subject. I, in as much as I was able, answered these questions. It seems to me that he took these (answers) on board and agreed with them, but in actual fact, it's best to ask him how he views this. He started to ask pointed questions, he was really interested in particular details. I, as much as I could, answered him in a fairly detailed way.feedback

Lindsey Graham

It's not the dumbest idea I've ever heard, but it's pretty close. Nobody is saying, Mr. President, that the Russians changed the outcome...but they did try to attack our election system. They were successful in many ways. The more you do this, the more people are suspicious about you and Russia.feedback

Steve Hall

The Russians will establish some sort of counter-terrorism cooperation as a chit, a quid pro quo, and withdraw it because of some of the other things we're doing.feedback

Steven Mnuchin

After a very substantive discussion on this, they reached an agreement that they would start a cyberunit to make sure that there was absolutely no interference whatsoever, that they would work on cybersecurity together. And President Trump focused the conversation on Syria and the Ukraine and North Korea.feedback

Vladimir Putin

He raised many questions on the issue. I answered all these questions, as far as I could. I think that he took it into account and agreed. Actually, you would better ask him how he found it.feedback

Vladimir Putin

As I see it, Television Trump is very different from the real person. He is absolutely concrete, absolutely adequately perceives the interlocutor, quite quickly analyzes, answers questions or draws from the discussions some new elements. As regards personal relations, I think they are established. There is no basis to believe that Russia interfered in the electoral process of the United States.feedback

Vladimir Putin

There is every reason to believe that we will be able to at least partially re-establish the level of cooperation that we need. I very much hope (for an improvement in relations) and it seems to me that some basis for this has already been created. It seems to me that the US position (on Syria) has become more pragmatic. There is a comprehension that if we combine our efforts, we can achieve a lot.feedback

Vladimir Putin

He asked many questioPresident Donald Trump and first lady Melania Trump get off Marine One before prior to boarding Air Force Onens on the subject, I tried to answer them all. It seems to me that he has taken note of that and agreed, but it's better to ask him about his attitude.feedback

Donald J. Trump

We are committed to securing your access to alternative sources of energy, so Poland and its neighbors are never again held hostage to a single supplier of energy.feedback

Nikki Haley

I think we need to be realistic about what happened. You had two men walk into the room. You had two men who knew the exact same thing, which is Russia did meddle in the elections. I think President Trump wanted to make sure that President Putin was aware that he was acknowledging it, that he knew it. I think President Putin did what we all expected him to do, which was deny it. And I think that is what it is. President Trump still knows that they meddled. President Putin knows that they meddled, but he is never going to admit to it. And that's all that happened.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

My feeling is that it's been confirmed that the presidents, both the Russian and the American, are driven above all by the countries' national interests and that they understand these interests primarily as looking for mutually beneficial agreements and not trying to act out some confrontation scenarios, not trying to create problems out of nothing.feedback

Vladimir Putin

I had a very long conversation with the president of the United States. Many issues had accumulated, including Ukraine, Syria and other problems, some bilateral issues. We again went back to counterterrorism and cyber security issues … phone conversations are never enough definitely. I'm delighted to be able to meet you personally. And I hope that, as you have said, our meetings will yield positive results.feedback

Vladimir Putin

As for personal relations, I think that they are established, . The Trump we see on TV is very much different from the real person. I think that if we continue building our relations like during our conversation yesterday, there are grounds to believe that we'll be able to - at least partially - restore the level of cooperation that we need.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I look forward to all meetings today with world leaders, including my meeting with Vladimir Putin. Much to discuss.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

President Putin denied such involvement as I think he has in the past.feedback

Emmanuel Macron

Our world has never been so divided. Centripetal forces have never been so powerful. Our common goods have never been so threatened.feedback

Zerlina Maxwell

It's completely inappropriate. What qualifications and experience does Ivanka Trump have in her background that should put her at the table with world leaders like Theresa May and Vladimir Putin? Literally a foot over from Vladimir Putin. This just goes to, I think, the level of inherent corruption in this administration.feedback

Vladimir Putin

[Trump] asked a lot of questions on this subject. I, inasmuch as I was able, answered these questions. It seems to me that he took these [answers] on board and agreed with them, but in actual fact, it's best to ask him how he views this. I believe that we have established personal relations already. It seems to me that if we build our relations the way that our conversation went yesterday, then we all have grounds to believe that we can, at least in part, restore the level of cooperation that we need.feedback

Andrei Kortunov

We still don't know how able President Trump is in terms of delivering on anything specific in these agreements because Russia is still toxic in Washington. Anything he agrees will be looked at with suspicion in Washington.feedback

Andrei Kortunov

The overall public reaction here is positive because people were concerned how this confrontation might end.feedback

Maria Snegovaya - Facebook

Let's congratulate Vladimir Vladimirovich with a geopolitical victory?feedback

Alexei Pushkov

The neocons are furious. Trump accepted Putin's words about Russia's noninterference in the American election. He does not want to stand at the 'anti-Russian hysteria' bus stop. It was important for Trump to hear Putin: After all, back in Washington, he is fed informational gruel that is mixed up in the fake.feedback

Andrei Kortunov

It is important that they finally met because if you look at the history of the relations between Washington and Moscow, these relations always depended to a large extent on the personal contact between the two leaders. They defended their trenches, but tried to keep options for future compromises open.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Let me characterize: the meeting was very constructive, the two leaders I would say, connected very quickly. There was a very clear positive chemistry between the two. There are so many issues on the table. . . . Just about everything got touched upon. . . . Neither one of them wanted to stop. I believe they even sent in the (U.S.) first lady at one point to see if she could get us out of there, but that didn't work either. . . . We did another hour. Clearly she failed!feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

Just about everything got touched on to one degree or another.feedback

Juliette Kayyem

With Trump doing nothing, he's enabling Putin. Trump wants Putin's help in 2020. Just say it directly. It's so obvious.feedback

Danielle Pletka

He does not have grand theories or ideas. Insofar as someone is useful to him they are fine. Insofar as they interfere, they are bad.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

The positive thing I observed – and I've had many, many meetings with President Putin before – is there was not a lot of re-litigating of the past. I think both of the leaders feel like there's a lot of things in the past that both of us are unhappy about. We're unhappy, they're unhappy.feedback

Sergey Lavrov

U.S. President Trump said that he heard firm assertions from Russian President Putin that it is not true and that Russian authorities have not meddled in the elections. He (Trump) said that he accepts these assertions. That's it.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

We look forward to a lot of very positive things happening for Russia, for the United States and for everybody concerned.feedback

Jose Fernandez

One of the things that we've heard this week is that Trump hadn't come up with an agenda, for example, with the meeting with Putin, and if you don't have your talking points straight, if you don't have the questions that you want to prepare for, it's really difficult to get something out of these meetings.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

And I think this is our first indication of the US and Russia being able to work together in Syria, and as a result of that, we had a very lengthy discussion regarding other areas in Syria that we can continue to work together on to de-escalate the areas in violence once we defeat ISIS and to work together towards a political process that will secure the future of the Syrian people.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

There was not a lot of re-litigating the past. I think both of the leaders feel like there's a lot of things in the past that both of us are unhappy about. We're unhappy. They're unhappy. I think the perspective of both of them was, this is a really important relationship. … How do we start making this work? How do we live with one another? How do we work with one another?feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

I think the president is rightly focused on how do we move forward from something that may be an intractable disagreement at this point. The Russians see it a little differently than we do, so we're going to continue those discussions and ask them to do more. Russia does have economic activity with North Korea. As to the nature of the two hours and 15 minutes, let me characterise: the meeting was very constructive, the two leaders I would say, connected very quickly. There was a very clear positive chemistry between the two.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

He's added that 'there was so much to talk about' that neither leader 'wanted to stop.feedback

Vladimir Putin

I had a very lengthy conversation with the President of the United States, there were a lot of issues such as Ukraine, Syria, other problems, some bilateral issues. We again returned to the issues of fighting terrorism and cybersecurity.feedback

Norm Eisen

The thing that was missing in President Trump's pleasantries … he didn't confront; he only embraced. There is a series of enormous issues with Russia and … what I was listening for was a subtle undertone: 'Of course we have some challenges to discuss.feedback

Jerry Moran

It's worthy of a national debate that includes legislative hearings.feedback

Richard Engel - National Broadcasting Company

For President Trump, meeting President Putin may be a way to thumb his nose at critics -- to show he's NOT scared of the multiple investigations into his inner circle's ties to the Kremlin. But for Russians who've tried to stand up to Putin, Trump is being played -- has been from the start.feedback

Garry Kasparov

He's definitely playing into Putin's hands. Putin's a dictator, and dictators by definition don't play chess, so that's why I believe I have to defend the integrity of my game… I would rather say he's playing a poker game… He's a, he's a poker player, he's a card player, he's a gambler.feedback

Donald Trump Jr.

So I guess they weren't effective threatening the admin so they go after & bully a 15 y/o? Seems in line w their 'standards'. With all the Cameras clicking away rapid fire you can't actually hear what they're saying? How many pictures do you need of the same scene?feedback

Wolfango Piccoli

The Kremlin seeks to discuss a wide range of topics from economic relations to the conflicts in Syria and Ukraine, while the U.S. side prefers a loose agenda for this first official meeting. It is unlikely that this closely-watched meeting will result in any tangible outcomes.feedback

Vladimir Putin

One could say that the level of trust on a working level, especially on the military level, has not improved, but rather has deteriorated. He is a very colourful person, talented, without any doubt. It is not our business to determine his merits, that is up to US voters, but he is the absolute leader in the presidential race.feedback

Alexander Kokcharov - IHS

It is unlikely that any deals or breakthroughs will be reached during the brief meeting at G20, however, it will be a foundation for future meetings between Trump and Putin.feedback

Alexander Kokcharov - IHS

The bilateral meeting between Trump and Putin will likely be brief, under one hour. It will be their first meeting, therefore it is likely to be very introductory with both parties attempting to establish relationship between the two leaders.feedback

Vladimir Putin

We've had a very long discussion with the US president. Many issues accrued, including Ukraine, Syria and other problems, as well as some bilateral issues.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Just as Poland could not be broken, I declare today for the world to hear that the West will never, ever be broken. Our values will prevail. Our people will thrive. And our civilization will triumph.feedback

Derek Chollet

I expect an Olympian level of macho posturing between these two leaders, who both understand the power of symbolism. Putin will be very prepared for this meeting. He's someone who is a master at manipulation.feedback

Angela Merkel

Unfortunately–and I deplore this–the United States of America left the climate agreement, or rather announced their intention of doing this. I think it's very clear that we could not reach consensus, but the differences were not papered over, they were clearly stated.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

The president was rightly focused on how do we move forward from what may be simply an intractable disagreement at this point. Do we have the same objections in mind? By and large, our objectives are exactly the same, but how we get there, we each have a view. Maybe they've got the right approach and we've got the wrong approach. Our position continues to be that we see no long-term role for the Assad family or the Assad regime, and we have made this clear to everyone.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

The president opened the meeting by raising the concerns of the American people regarding Russian interference in 2016 election. Putin denied such involvement, as he has done in the past. The two leaders agreed this is of substantial hindrance. They agreed to exchange further work regarding commitments of noninterference in the affairs of the U.S. and our democratic process as well as other countries. This is our first indication of the US and Russia being able to work together in Syria.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

The president opened the meeting with President Putin by raising the concerns of the American people regarding Russian interference in the 2016 election. They had a very robust and lengthy exchange on the subject. The president pressed President Putin, on more than one occasion, regarding Russian involvement. President Putin denied such involvement, as i think he has in the past. The two leaders agreed though that this is a substantial hindrance and the ability to move the Russian-U.S. relationship forward and agreed to exchnage further work regarding commitments of non-interference.feedback

Jonathan Freedland

As the G20 summit shows, the US under its erratic president is losing its soft power – and its friends. In the movie version, they would have talked for a few minutes and then found an excuse to dismiss their foreign ministers and interpreters. At long last, Vladimir Putin and Donald Trump would be alone and in private. Putin would look the American up and down, as proud as a father gazing upon his grown son. “We did it,” Putin might say softly, almost to himself. “We actually did it.”.feedback

John Podesta

BTW, I had nothing to do with the DNC. God only knows what you'll be raving about on twitter by the time we get to Utah. Dude, get your head in the game. You're representing the US at the G20.feedback

Vladimir Putin

The "North Korean nuclear program is a very acute problem. We must not lose our self-command; we need to act pragmatically and very carefully.feedback

Johnny Isakson

The return of these two facilities to Russia while the Kremlin refuses to address its influence campaign against the United States would embolden President Vladimir Putin and invite a dangerous escalation in the Kremlin's destabilizing actions against democracies worldwide.feedback

Bill Pascrell

Since the Reagan administration, U.S. officials have believed that these facilities were also being used for intelligence-related purposes.feedback

Barack Obama

We resolve to reset US-Russian relations so that we can cooperate more effectively in areas of common interest. Today we've made meaningful progress and demonstrated through means and words what a more constructive US Russian relationship can look like in the 21st century.feedback

Joe Biden

I don't trust Mr. Putin. Hopefully the president was being stylistic rather than substantive.feedback

Marius Livingston

The place looked like a military command centre. What was once a tranquil retreat was suddenly the center of the world's attention.feedback

Yuri Ushakov

We realize that the situation is difficult and relations with Russia have become hostage to the U.S. political infighting, but so what? We have difficulties of our own.feedback

Dmitri Trenin

If Putin has a positive view, as a minimum he will give [Trump] more time to sort things out. But he could possibly conclude that he [Trump] may not succeed in sorting things out and, moreover, doesn't really want an honest deal. If Putin decides it's not going to work, he will drop all constraints.feedback

Dmitri Trenin

I would be surprised if Vladimir Putin offers any concessions in exchange for restoring what Russia sees as its inalienable rights. If no agreement is reached, Russia will take retaliatory measures, which could trigger new U.S. moves.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think it could very well have been Russia, but I think it could well have been other countries. I think a lot of people interfere. I think it's been happening for a long time. The real story is that President Obama did NOTHING after being informed in August about Russian meddling.feedback

Francis Rooney

I'd like to see the president figure out how to engage Russia on North Korea. What I suggested to the president here a while back was that since we have all these conflicting issues about Russia right now, and we're still reeling from the fact that they took Crimea, maybe this is an opportunity to reset the Russia relationship in a positive manner.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I have nothing to do with Putin. I've never spoken to him. I don't know anything about him other than he will respect me.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think the biggest thing we have is that we were on 60 Minutes together and we had fantastic ratings. One of your best-rated shows in a long time. So that was good, right? So we were stablemates.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He's been very nice to me. If we can make a great deal for our country and get along with Russia that would be a tremendous thing. I would love to try it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Look at Putin – what he's doing with Russia – I mean, you know, what's going on over there. I mean this guy has done – whether you like him or don't like him – he's doing a great job in rebuilding the image of Russia and also rebuilding Russia, period. And you know what? They want to be friendly with the United States. Wouldn't it be nice if we actually got along with somebody?feedback

Donald J. Trump

Putin has big plans for Russia. He wants to edge out its neighbors so that Russia can dominate oil supplies to all of Europe. I respect Putin and Russians but cannot believe our leader (Obama) allows them to get away with so much … Hats off to the Russians.feedback

Donald J. Trump

He's running his country and at least he's a leader, unlike what we have in this country. I think our country does plenty of killing also, Joe, so you know. There's a lot of stupidity going on in the world right now, a lot of killing going on, a lot of stupidity.feedback

Vladimir Putin

He is absolutely the leader in the presidential race. He wants to move to a different level of relations, to more solid, deeper relations with Russia and how can Russia not welcome that – we welcome that.feedback

Donald J. Trump

I think it was Russia, but I think it was probably other people and/or countries, and I see nothing wrong with that statement. Nobody really knows. Nobody really knows for sure. Let me just start off by saying I heard it was 17 agencies. I said, boy, that's a lot, do we even have that many intelligence agencies, right? Let's check it. And we did some very heavy research. It turned out to be three or four. It wasn't 17.feedback

H.R. McMaster

There's no specific agenda. It's really going to be whatever the [US] president wants to talk about.feedback

Adam Schiff

If the president is not going to be the leader of the free world and champion human rights and democratic governance, who is? There is nothing the Kremlin would like to see more than a president who will settle for a grip and a grin, and walk away saying that he had this fabulous meeting with the Kremlin autocrat.feedback

Fyodor Lukyanov

It is going to be a great show, but there is no agenda and there was no preparation. The only meaning that's left is for Putin to figure out, based on his intuition, if any business can be done with this person, or if Trump is unable, or even unwilling, to engage.feedback

Dmitri Trenin

If Putin comes to the conclusion that even if Russia and the US reach agreement, Trump would be unable to implement it for domestic policy reasons, he would lose interest in seeking an agreement. He believes that personalities not states, armies or companies determine the course of global events. If Putin has a positive view, as a minimum he will give (Trump) more time to sort things out.feedback

Michael McFaul

He comes with an agenda. He also does his psychological homework He will raise things about people's backgrounds and things they've done 15 years ago. I have seen that before. Here he is trying to build a relationship with Trump. He still believes at the end of the day he can pull Trump towards his agenda and wants to do it.feedback

Donald J. Trump

America is committed to maintaining peace and security in central and eastern Europe. We're working with Poland in response to Russia's actions and destabilising behaviour, and we're grateful for the example Poland has set for every member of the NATO Alliance by being one of the few nations that actually meets its financial obligations.feedback

Michael McFaul

[Trump] should know and we should understand: Putin is coming with an agenda. Putin is going to be prepared. If you are going to freelance it, doesn't mean he's going to. He is a very effective interlocutor.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Now, the thing I have to mention is: Obama was president when he find out about this in August. The election was in November. That was a lot time. He did nothing about it. They say he choked. Well, I don't think he chocked, when he though Hillary would have won the election, he said let's not do anything about it. Had it been the other way he would have done something about. He was told in early August that Russia was trying to get involved or meddling pretty strongly with the election. The reason was he thought Hillary was going to win….feedback

Donald J. Trump

Poland has been a great friend, ally and a partner with respect to our military. We fought shoulder to shoulder in many different encounters. We are particularly grateful for the action Poland has taken to defeat ISIS and other terrorist organizations. Poland has been right there for us.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

The United States is prepared to explore the possibility of establishing with Russia joint mechanisms for ensuring stability, including no-fly zones, on the ground ceasefire observers, and coordinated delivery of humanitarian assistance. We call upon all parties, including the Syrian government and its allies, Syrian opposition forces, and Coalition forces carrying out the battle to defeat Islamic State, to avoid conflict with one another and adhere to agreed geographical boundaries for military de-confliction and protocols for de-escalation.feedback

Donald J. Trump

The triumph of the Polish spirit over centuries of hardship gives us all hope in which good conquers evil and peace achieves victory over war. Our freedom, our civilization, and our survival depend on these bonds of history culture and memory and more than ever. Poland is in our heart and its people are in that fight. I declare today for the world to hear the West will never, ever be broken, our values will prevail, our people will thrive and our civilization will triumph. America and Europe have suffered one terror attack after another.feedback

Rex W. Tillerson

While there are no perfect options for guaranteeing stability, we must explore all possibilities for holding the line against the resurgence of ISIS or other terrorist groups. The United States believes Russia, as a guarantor of [Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's] regime and an early entrant into the Syrian conflict, has a responsibility to ensure that the needs of the Syrian people are met and that no faction in Syria illegitimately retakes or occupies areas liberated from ISIS's or other terrorist groups' control.feedback

Thomas Kleine-Brockoff

At first, I think she thought she could manage him. After all, she's made a study of all these leaders – Putin, Bush, Obama. You could almost see her analyze Trump, run through the various scenarios and approaches for dealing with him. Now I think she realizes there aren't really any.feedback

Michael Kimmel

It's as old as American politics and yet it feels new in this iteration. Everything is a manhood test. Even CNN has to be wrestled into the ground in a fake match, not a real one. To me, that's the metaphor, the WWE. It's two hyper-idealized versions of masculinity getting into the ring. Everyone loves the over-the-topness of the pretense, because everyone knows no one can get hurt. In this case, someone could get hurt.feedback

Adam Schiff

This is not putting America first, but continuing to propagate his own personal fiction at the country's expense. President Trump must have the courage to raise the issue of Russian interference in our elections directly with President Putin; otherwise, the Kremlin will conclude he is too weak to stand up to them. That would be a historic mistake, with damaging implications for our foreign policy for years to come.feedback

Vladimir Putin

On the Syrian problem and the Middle East in general, it is clear to all that no progress will be made without joint constructive work.feedback

Andrei Kolesnikov

The Kremlin is astonished that the president cannot behave like a real president, like ours, so what can they do in this situation?feedback

Vladimir Frolov

They hope to sway the policy deliberations with direct contact.feedback
