President of the United States Donald Trump was hiding the details of the first negotiations with President of Russia Vladimir Putin at the G20 Summit in Hamburg in 2017, reports the Washington Post citing the sources.
The newspaper found out that after the talks with Putin, the U.S. President has allegedly taken the notes of the translator, who was present at the meeting and told him not to spread it around.
The secret was revealed when a White House adviser and a senior State Department official sought information from the interpreter. The interpreter refused their request.
Soon, Trump answered the accusations by claiming that he is not keeping anything under wraps, reports Fox News.
According to him, he had a conversation like every president does because that is what presidents do.
‘I had a conversation like every president does. I do it with all countries. We had a great conversation. We were talking about Israel and securing Israel and lots of other things. I am not keeping anything under wraps,’ Trump said.
On November 28, the U.S. President Donald Trump threatened to cancel the meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin due to Russia’s aggressive capture of the Ukrainian vessels and sailors in Azov Sea, as he said in the interview for The Washington Post.
