The American president Donald Trump and the Russian leader Vladimir Putin during the G20 summit in Hamburg early this month, a second meeting.

That confirms the White House following reports in the American media.

The informal conversation, that only now has come to light, would a sequel have been on a previous encounter between the two leaders.

On July 7, came Trump and Putin together for a two-hour conversation. Trump would later say that Putin in that conversation would have denied that he interfered with the U.s. presidential election.

Trump responded via Twitter to the suggestions of a “secret dinner” by the “nepnieuws” to name a few. According to the American president, there is nothing peculiar to the holding of an informal conversation with Putin. “Even for a regular dinner between twenty leaders is as sinister considered,” said the president.

Fake News story or a secret dinner with Putin is “sick.” All G 20 leaders, and spouses, were invited by the Chancellor of Germany. Press knew!

Over the follow-up is still a lot unclear. It would be a few hours after the first formal discussion have taken place during a dinner for heads of government.

According to The Washington Post, would Trump halfway through the dinner the spot, have to leave on a chair next to Putin. Trump was alone, and Putin was only in the company of his interpreter. The two used the interpreter of the Russian president as the U.s. interpreter at the dinner the Russian language, not master.

The White House describes the meeting as a “brief conversation” and not a “second encounter”.

An officer of the White House added that the “insinuation” that the government had tried to move the conversation to keep it a secret “absurd, inaccurate and blame”.
