United States senator presents letter from Pres. Trump for Putin

The June 12 meeting between Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong-Un was successful 28 percent of respondents said, while 33 percent said it was unsuccessful and 39 percent said they were not sure.

Such issues have been discussed between USA and Russian leaders for decade, but they have since been overshadowed by an array of controversies including Syria, Ukraine and claims of Russia's meddling in Mr Trump's 2016 election campaign.

"The letter emphasised the importance of further engagement in various areas including countering terrorism, enhancing legislative dialogue and resuming cultural exchanges", Mr Paul wrote in a Twitter post.

But Dmitry Peskov said Wednesday that the letter has not yet been examined by the Kremlin.

Paul, one of the few Republicans to defend Trump's widely panned performance at a July 16 news conference with Putin in Helsinki, said he had travelled to Moscow to encourage diplomacy.

Both Trump and Putin have invited each other to their respective capital cities in the aftermath of last month's Helsinki summit between the two leaders. Rand Paul (R-KY) delivered to Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin was focused on a request for a meeting. However, he undermined those remarks when he quickly returned to calling the special counsel's investigation a "witch hunt", and referred to Russian interference as a "hoax".

The relationship has also created divisions within the administration.

Paul defended Trump's meeting with Putin despite boisterous criticism from Democrats, establishment Republicans, and the mainstream media.

The draft of the order viewed by the Post would allow the US government to impose sanctions on any foreign individual or entity that sticks their nose in a USA election.

CNN aired round two of its panel of Trump voters - split down the middle with three who still support the president and three who regret their 2016 vote - and this time, the topic was a hot one: Russian Federation.

A reported text of the draft bill published Wednesday sent Russia's ruble to lows against the dollar last seen in April.
