Before the two went into a private meeting, Trump failed to mention that he would discuss Russian meddling in the 2016 election with Putin. He had previously told reporters that he would bring it up.
The summit follows an announcement from the Justice Department last week that it had indicted 12 Russian officials for interfering in the 2016 U.S. election.
