Discussing Three-Way Nuclear Deal With Russia, China: Donald Trump

Alexey Nikolsky  Presidential Press Service  TASS

"We're talking about a nuclear agreement where we make less and they make less", Trump told reporters after his telephonic conversation with the Russian President Vladimir Putin.

In a tweet, Trump said he and Putin talked about "the Russia Hoax", among other topics including nuclear arms, North Korea and Venezuela.

White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said earlier that Trump told Putin "the United States stands with the people of Venezuela" and stressed he wanted to get relief supplies into the country.

Friday on CNN's "The Lead", host Jake Tapper accused President Donald Trump of giving Russian President Vladimir Putin's view on the conflict in Venezuela during his comments this Friday afternoon.

Trump said China during trade talks had "felt very strongly" about joining the United States and Russian Federation in limiting nuclear weapons.

The call comes as President Trump continues to face fallout following the special counsel Robert Mueller's probe and amid growing calls for Attorney General William Barr to resign for his handling of the report.

Defense officials said they discussed options on Venezuela.

"We want to obviously have him come in and give us greater understanding and in-depth facts behind the report as well as the underlying evidence", he said.

"Cuba, Russia send troops to prop Maduro up in Venezuela.while we talk/sanction", Graham tweeted.

"We discussed it", Trump said of the report.

Trump said that, at no point, did he warn Putin not to meddle in the next election.

Power issue delays SpaceX space station supply launch from Cape Canaveral
Officials had said the first flight with astronauts may be as early as this summer, but the program is under review. Power on the station is generation by its solar arrays and is then fed through the power channels.

Trump said the two leaders were also considering a new nuclear agreement "where we make less and they make less". Latin Americans remain broadly skeptical of American military intervention - most of their governments have joined the United States in backing Guaidó - and US action could fracture the current consensus over Venezuela.

In a readout of the call, the Kremlin said that Putin "underscored that only the Venezuelans themselves have the right to determine the future of their country, whereas outside interference in the country's internal affairs and attempts to change the government in Caracas by force undermine prospects for a political settlement of the crisis".

Kremlin said Putin informed Trump of the main results of his meeting with top leader of the Democratic People's Republic of Korea (DPRK) Kim Jong Un last week.

Regarding North Korea, Trump's focus was on "the importance of Russian Federation stepping up and continuing to help and put pressure on North Korea to denuclearise", Sanders said.

The two leaders also discussed Ukraine.

They affirmed their shared commitment to step up dialogue in various areas, including on issues of strategic stability, according to the Kremlin.

Trump has repeatedly declined to publicly rebuff Putin for the 2016 operation.

A reporter asked Trump if he told Putin to not interfere again in a USA election, and Trump shut the question down.

Trump's comments stand in sharp contrast to those made a month ago, after Russian Federation sent a contingent of special forces to Caracas. "Now it has come to pass, but it did not make the domestic political situation in the US any easier".

Trump has called the New START treaty concluded by his predecessor, Barack Obama, a "bad deal" and "one-sided".
