U.S. President Donald Trump rejected Russian President Vladimir Putin's proposal that Russian authorities be allowed to question American citizens, the White House said Thursday, after the offer drew fierce criticism in the United States.The offer Putin described was to permit U.S. law enforcement officials to observe questioning by Russian officials of the indicted officers in exchange for letting Russian investigators question Americans on other matters, specifically mentioning a case involving London-based financier Bill Browder, a onetime investor in Russia.Trump Monday called the idea "an incredible offer". The White House's announcement was the latest as it struggled to quiet an uproar over Trump's failure to confront Putin over Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.In Moscow, Putin said "powerful" U.S. forces were trying to sabotage the summit's achievements, but said he and Trump had begun to improve U.S.-Russia ties anyway.
