"Don't meddle": Trump meets Putin at G20

President Donald Trump told Russian President Vladimir Putin on Friday (June 28) not to meddle in the U.S. elections, appearing to make light of a scandal that had led to a two-year investigation into his campaign's contact with the Kremlin during the 2016 elections.

Asked by a reporter whether he would raise the issue during a bilateral meeting with Putin, Trump said: "Yes, of course I will." Trump then turned to Putin to give the directive twice while pointing at the Russian leader.

Putin maintained a smile as the remark was interpreted for him.

Trump and Putin were heading into a meeting on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan.

It was the first time the two leaders have had a formal face-to-face meeting since a controversial high-profile summit in Helsinki last July.
