Trump-Putin II: Planning fall event in aftermath of HelsinkiUnbowed by swirling criticism of his summit encounter with Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump swiftly invited the Russian leader to the White House this fall for a second get-together. Cleanup from the first has continued with no letup and Trump belatedly decided Putin's "incredible offer" of shared U.S.-Russia investigations was no good after all.No Russian leader has visited the White House in nearly a decade.Trump's public doubting of Russia's responsibility in a joint news conference with Putin on Monday provoked withering criticism from Republicans as well as Democrats and forced the president to make a rare public admission of error.Trump initially had described the idea as an "incredible offer".He restated the U.S. intelligence assessment about Russian meddling and Moscow's "ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".While they had met privately on three occasions in 2017, Trump opened the door to a potential White House meeting with Putin earlier this year.
