According to TheGuardian, during an interview with Jeff Glor of CBS News, Trump said that he told Putin during their meeting that he was "Very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling, we can't have any of that".
With that, Trump declared the contretemps over, insisting, "I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself".
The White House said on Wednesday that Trump would meet with his team about U.S officials being questioned by Russian Federation.
The former combat engineer with the U.S. Marine Corps sat glued to his cellphone screen in his downtown Seattle office, watching live on Monday as the American president suggested he believed Putin's denial that his agents interfered in the 2016 U.S. elections.

Trump said people "who wanted to see a boxing match" were bothered by his rapport with Putin.

Members of Congress, including several powerful Republicans, distanced themselves from Trump's remarks and aligned themselves with U.S. intelligence estimates that Russian Federation had interfered in the election.
