U.S. President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed working together to end the violence in Syria Tuesday in their first phone call since U.S. airstrikes in Syria strained U.S.-Russian relations.Putin took the call after a rare visit from German Chancellor Angela Merkel, where tensions between Russia and the West were laid bare. The Kremlin, which called the talks between Putin and Trump business-like and constructive, said the two leaders had emphasized coordinating their actions to fight international terrorism.Putin, standing alongside her, bristled at the suggestion Russia had meddled in the U.S. election and that it was planning more of the same in Europe.Allegations about Russia trying to get Donald Trump elected as U.S. president were "rumors," Putin said, generated as part of internal political battles in the United States.
