Trump holds news conference with Putin following their meeting

President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin held a joint news conference following their first extended face to face talks in Finland today with President Trump saying "I really think the world wants to see us get along."
The President said in addition to discussing trade, Syria and other issues, he brought up Russia’s meddling in the 2016 U.S. Election. On Friday,  the Justice Department indicted 12 Russian agents for alleged hacking during the election.
The one on one meeting between the two leaders is unprecedented. Never has a U.S. President met with his Russian counterpart for about two hours with only translators in the room. 
Following the private talk, staff members joined them for a working lunch. Hours before the summit, President Trump raised eyebrows by blaming the United States for the rocky relationship between the two nations.  He tweeted “our relationship with Russia has never been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now the rigged witch hunt.”  
The meeting started with a bit of drama.  President Putin arrived in Helsinki behind schedule in what has become his tradition of keeping leaders waiting.  President Trump then waited until Putin arrived at the palace before leaving his hotel. 

During the news conference, President Putin once again denied any Russian meddling in the U.S. election.
