Wait! An election meddling agreement? Neither leader would come out and say it occurred in an unqualified statement but, yet, there is an agreement?
AMBURG, Germany — President Trump repeatedly pushed his Russian counterpart on Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, U.S. and Russian officials said Friday, with the two leaders tentatively agreeing not to meddle in each other's elections in the future.
The accord was a surprising development in the complicated U.S.-Russian relationship, given the reluctance of both Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin to acknowledge Russia's use of hacking and propaganda to influence the U.S. election last year.
But Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said the issue was "a substantial hindrance in the ability to move the U.S.-Russian relationship forward." The two sides are setting up lower-level talks to work out details of the agreement, he said. USA TODAY
