ABOVE VIDEO: Trump, Putin express hope for ‘positive results’ at G-20

(FOX NEWS) – President Trump pressed Russia’s Vladimir Putin on U.S. election meddling while also making headway on the Syria crisis during their first formal meeting on Friday, according to administration officials who offered details on the highly anticipated sit-down in Germany which lasted more than two hours.

One of the big questions going into Friday’s meeting on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Hamburg was whether Trump would confront Putin over long-standing allegations of meddling in last year’s presidential campaign.

Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters that Trump in fact opened the meeting with those concerns, leading to a robust discussion.

“The president pushed Putin, on multiple occasions — Putin denied involvement, as I believe he has done in the past,” Tillerson said.
