Trump and Putin held undisclosed private meeting at G20

"As the dinner was concluding, President Trump went over to Mrs. [Melania] Trump, where he spoke briefly with President Putin".

The Trump administration has been besieged by allegations that the president's closest advisors colluded with Russian Federation to win the 2016 election.

The White House has appointed Jon Huntsman, a former envoy to China, as the new Ambassador to Russian Federation, it said Tuesday in an online statement.

"It is not merely perfectly normal, it is part of a president's duties, to interact with world leaders", the statement continued.

The news comes as the White House attempts to beat back growing attention on a meeting between Donald Trump Jr. - the president's son - and multiple people with ties to Russia, including a Russian lawyer and a lobbyist.

They have sent a letter to Marcia Lee Kelly, who handles White House security clearances, and Andrew McCabe, the acting Federal Bureau of Investigation director, according to the Washington Examiner. The leaders were all photographed by the press in before going inside.

Bremmer said there was a dinner on July 7 for the G20 heads of state and their spouses.

The president then added that the truck was "beautiful".

At the dinner for world leaders, hosted by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, Putin was seated next to Trump's wife Melania.

Ivanka Trump, the president's daughter and advisor, has a fashion line that relies on low-wage workers creating her clothes in factories in Bangladesh, Indonesia and China, according to the Washington Post last week.

"Each couple was allowed one translator". The Washington Examiner's headline called him the "president of hypocrisy", noting "The Donald J. Trump Collection is made everywhere except in the U.S. His shirts?"

Mr Putin's translator was the only other person present during the conversation between the pair but there was no translator for Mr Trump, something Mr Bremmer described as a breach of national security protocol.

Democratic Delaware Senator Chris Coons said Trump didn't bring a U.S. translator and relied on Putin's, which the senator called a "basic failure in terms of national security protocol". Of course there's a market because we depend in this country for many goods and services, some of which are made in America some of which aren't.

Bremmer said he heard directly from attendees. "They've have had a very hard time, closing at numbers and records that have never been seen before", he said.

Russian media and officials at the time portrayed Huntsman as a "hardliner".

"Fake News story of secret dinner with Putin is "sick", the President wrote on Twitter".

Still, given their earlier meeting at the G20 had attracted so much attention - with differing accounts of exactly what was said - and the ongoing U.S. investigations into possible collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, any discussion between the pair without United States aides present was bound to lead to fevered speculation.
