President of the USA Donald Trump had claimed he had met Putin previously, but then changed his mind, according to an Associated Press article. In 2013, he said that he had done "a lot of business with the Russians" and had met Putin once.

In 2014, Trump described having been in Moscow recently, “and I spoke indirectly and directly with President Putin, who could not have been nicer”.

And in a 2015 interview with conservative talk-radio host Michael Savage, Trump was asked again point-blank whether he’d ever met Putin. “Yes,” Trump said. “One time, yes. Long time ago”.

However, his story began to change during the election campaign, and now both presidents say they've never met before.

It should be reminded that US intelligence agencies believe Russia might have intervened in the last US elections.

As it was reported earlier, The Presidents of the USA and Russian Federation Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin have their first meeting in person at G20 summit today
