Huckabee Sanders: Trump and Putin Discussed ‘Sanctions Specific to Election Meddling’ (The Washington Free Beacon)
White House spokeswoman Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday that President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed sanctions "related to election meddling" during their meeting last week, refuting a tweet by Trump a day earlier.
Trump tweeted on Sunday that "sanctions were not discussed at my meeting with President Putin," adding that nothing would be done until the "Ukrainian & Syrian problems are solved!" The two met face-to-face at the G-20 summit in Hamburg, Germany on Friday.
A White House reporter, however, directly asked Sanders at Monday's White House press briefing if the two discussed sanctions at the G-20 summit.
