At 4:10 pm the pool was ushered into the room where President Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin sat side by side.

Trump's comments:

"Presidnet Putin and I have been discussing various things and I think it's going very well."

"We've had some very very good talks. "

"We're going to have a talk now and obviously that will continue."

"We looks forward to a lot of very positive happening for Russia and for the United States and for everyone concerned"

Putin: ( through a translator.)

"We spoke over the phone... but phone conversations are never enough definitely."

"I'm delighted to be able to meet you personally."

"And I hope that as you have said our meetings will yield positive results."

As Putin spoke, Trump looked directly at him and sat with his hands clasped. After their statements, the pool was ushered out. Trump and Putin shook hands. Several reporters in the room asked Trump if he would raise Russia's election meddling. He heard, but ignored the questions.

As the pool left the room, Trump leaned in and said something to Putin, who chuckled.
