AKIPRESS.COM - President Vladimir Putin feels insulted by allegations of Russian interference in the 2016 US election, Donald Trump has said after meeting him briefly at an Asia-Pacific summit in Vietnam, BBC reports.
"You can only ask so many times... he said he absolutely did not meddle in our election," the US president said.
Mr Putin later dismissed the allegations as "political infighting".
The US intelligence community has already concluded that Russia tried to sway the poll in favour of Mr Trump.
The US justice department has appointed special investigator Robert Mueller to examine any possible collusion involving Mr Trump's team, and legal action has already been taken against several former aides.
