Russian president Vladimir Putin says Trump was "satisfied" with the Russian's assurances that Moscow did not meddle in America's 2016 elections. Well, that's that then.
Speaking at the end of a G20 summit in Germany where the two leaders met face-to-face for the first time, Putin said he believed he had been able to establish a personal relationship with Trump, and that the initial groundwork had been laid for an improvement in US-Russian ties.
Their meeting was subject to intense scrutiny, following allegations that Moscow had tried to help Trump win the White House, and a Washington investigation into the Russia ties of Trump associates.
So, Vlad tells Don, "trust me, I did nothing to swing that election your way," and Donnie buys it.
