Mid Day - - World - Don­ald Trump

WASH­ING­TON: US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump has de­nied re­ports that he did not share de­tails of some his meet­ings with his Rus­sian coun­ter­part Vladimir Putin, say­ing that he would not mind re­leas­ing those de­tails.

“Well, I would (re­lease de­tails of the con­ver­sa­tions with Putin) I am not keep­ing any­thing un­der wraps,” Trump told Fox news in an in­ter­view fol­low­ing a re­port by the Wash­ing­ton Post that claimed he has con­cealed de­tails of his face-to-face en­coun­ters with Putin from se­nior of­fi­cials in ad­min­is­tra­tion.

“I don’t care. I mean I had a con­ver­sa­tion like ev­ery pres­i­dent does, you sit with the pres­i­dent of var­i­ous coun­tries. We had a great con­ver­sa­tion. We were talk­ing about Is­rael and se­cur­ing Is­rael and lots of other things and it was a great con­ver­sa­tion. I’m not keep­ing any­thing un­der wraps. I couldn’t care less,” he said.

Trump de­scribed the news re­port as “ridicu­lous”.

“The Wash­ing­ton Post is al­most as bad as prob­a­bly as bad as The New York Times. I have a one-on-one meet­ing with Putin like I do with ev­ery other leader and I had many one-on-ones. No­body ever says any­thing about it,” he said.

‘I meet with ev­ery leader in­di­vid­u­ally...No­body says any­thing. But, I meet with Putin, they make a big deal. Any­body could have lis­tened to that meet­ing. That meet­ing is open for grabs’
