Contradicting a statement by Donald Trump, White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders says conversation took place during G20 meeting
Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin discussed sanctions related to Russian meddling in the 2016 US election when they met last week, the White House said on Monday, contradicting an earlier statement by the US president.
In the first White House press briefing in 10 days, spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said that during the two presidents’ meeting on Friday, “there were sanctions specific to election meddling that I believe were discussed, but not beyond that”.
Sanctions were not discussed at my meeting with President Putin. Nothing will be done until the Ukrainian & Syrian problems are solved!
