U.S. President Donald Trump issued a playful warning to Russian leader Vladimir Putin: "Don't meddle in the election."

When the two world leaders met at the G20 summit in Osaka, Japan on Friday, Trump brought up the 2016 presidential election that triggered a two-year federal investigation into Russia's possible interference in the election.

After a reporter asked Trump if he would tell Putin not to interfere in the election, Trump said, "Yes, of course, I will."

Trump then turned to Putin and playfully asked him not to do it again. "Don't meddle in the election, president," Trump said to Putin as reporters shouted questions at him.

Wagging a finger at the Russian president, Trump repeated, "don't meddle in the election."

When a Russian interpreter translated Trump's words, Putin laughed.

The moment came after Trump said, "it's a great honor to be with President Putin."

He continued: "We have a very very good relationship and we look forward to spending some very good time together. A lot of very positive things are going to come out of the relationship."

The American media and lawmakers were not pleased with Trump's playful exchange with Putin.

A White House transcript of the meeting said Trump and Putin discussed arms control, Iran, Syria, Venezuela and Ukraine.

    Ohhhh. So he was joking.

    Did yall watch the debate?

  • deadellamore
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    He gave a "playful" warning because he really doesn't take this issue seriously. Deep down, Trump is fine with Putin meddling because he knows Putin would be trying to help him win, and he needs all the help he can get. Joe Biden and/or Kamala Harris would beat Trump right now.

    Kamala can certainly perform,
    ^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^That part. As much as it pains me to say it, I think she did the best last night. She hemmed Joe Biden up nice and proper. But, hopefully she has made herself a target. I want her to explain that little truancy operation she was running.

    They are only discussing it where it should be discussed in the house, none of the candidates even bother with it.

  • Phillybruh

    Joe and Bernie looked so old last night, I don't know man.

  • Phillybruh

    Kamala and Mayor Pete did really well.

  • Decked Out
  • Mr.LeBrickJames

    Joe took some shots (as we knew he would, being the frontrunner) but there was no knockout punch. I thought his answers were pretty solid. Kamala came off as over-aggressive to me.

  • Phillybruh

    No it was no knock out punch but he looked old, he can't do that again or he will be done. I could only Imagine if Sanders were on night one with Warren. Trump and the republicans may prefer Biden, but they don't want either of them.

  • Lucky8

    Which simply means that he should mess with the elections. 45 can fool his dumb down base, but the woke ones know. "Agent, bug eyed, s*it stain mcconnel did not allot election meddling funding for a reason. The vermin is totally against protecting our elections from 45's BFF.

    The Republicans are shameless. Imagine if Obama or any Democratic president acted like this with a foreign power trying to interfere in our elections. These hypocrites wouldn't be turning a blind eye to it like they're doing with Trump. Just disgusting.

  • CookieMobster

    There is nothing wrong with the president of our country being on professionally friendly terms with the leaders of all the worlds countries. In fact that seems way more favorable to me then treating them with hostility and dislike. However at all times one must keep a vigilant watch out of ones side eye. You know like you do that girl at your office or in your neighbor hood that always holler hay guuuurrrlll every time you see her, but you wouldn't want to allow in your click cuz there's just something about her....

    I definitely think the Repubs prefer Harris over Biden. Biden scares Trump. I don't think Harris does at all. Besides, Mr. Race-Baiter himself would probably love to go up against a black woman so his people can quietly play the race card, which he can't do against Biden.

    No one is talking about how Americans are going to be paying for the education of illegal aliens. The socialist debate last night went far left and the outcome will be worse than Venezuela. Joe Biden was the architect of mass incarceration of millions of black men. KAMALA HARRIS father's family were slave owners. Castro want to give 1000 dollars to everyone . Bernie and Liz wants to give free education to illegals and get rid of Medicare. Like all the trolls on here really are dim as rocks. Wake up and stop acting like mindless sheep and be present. The Democrats are going off the rails and if you like paying 45% taxes in the future admit it. Wall street is not paying for this and neither are thier rich donors. Get a effing clue. My word. Stop focusing on BS.

  • TransMichelle

    Thank you...you saved me a post I was going to write earlier. Odumba definitely said it and it was caught on a live mic. But they ignore that. Don't forget something...these black folks here think they have "united" with white liberals but they're being used and brainwashed.There's no help for them. The media can "make or break" anybody they want. Since the media is owned by liberals they are censoring truth and demonizing The Donald. White folks got these nee/grows trained like dogs. While the Demoncrats fight for more illegals to come into the country and offer free healthcare and housing these dumbazz black folks "cut off their nose to spite their face." The anti-American and selfish. They pitiful...! Black people don't know what's in their best interest that's why our neighborhoods and countries are so f^cked up. It's clear that The Donald was making a joke with Putin because he knows, Mueller admitted, and others know that their was NO COLLUSION IN THE ELECTION...!

  • TransMichelle

    They don't hear it because they are brainwashed and trained like dogs. It's amazing that a people can be so dam stupid.

  • TransMichelle

    How many stupid pills do you take per day? Just asking...! All presidents past and present met with world leaders and all other world leaders meet with each other. Black folks are the most immature and least thinking people in the world.

  • Mielle Downey

    It hurts my soul that black people are not present and taking notes. The Democrats have become the terrorists organization in America and are hell bent on destroying the REPUBLIC for financial gain. They want to turn this country into a ish hole.

  • Mielle Downey

    You are not mentally stable and should really evaluate your own mind and how it is working against you. Did you just wake up yesterday? Didn't the other presidents meet at these summits ?

  • TransMichelle

    HAHAHA..I love how The Donald goes over you dumb azz n/ggas heads. You don't get it. That's why our neighborhoods and countries are sh&tholes. PITIFUL..!

  • TransMichelle

    Yep. they want power and don't care who they hurt to get it. They are pitting everyone against everyone else..homosexuals against heterosexuals, children against parents, men against women, blacks against whites, atheist against religion...we are in a spiritual warfare and it's getting dire. We will lose this country and these dumb azz n/ggas not thinkig about they have to live in this country too. The libs, Demoncrats, and the other anti-Americans are censoring truth and others who do not agree with them. This is how it started for the JOOS in Germany prior to the h0l0caust. The censorship was book burning and silencing anyone or group who was against the agenda of domination. It's the same thing that's happening in America but black folks don't care, Black folks have never been able to vote in their best interest, understand nuance, or take into consideration consequence. There's a consequence for their ignorance... they care nothing for this country because they believe that white folks will always take care of them. They don't see what's up ahead...!

  • wigmon68

    Obama knew Russia was trying to influence our elections while he was president. What did he do?

  • Mielle Downey

    The Atlanta Mayor has just endorsed her colonizer Joe Biden. We have the worst leadership in the black community. This cave demon Biden was a segregationist and the architect of the mass incarceration of black men. Black people will never be able to thrive with this slave mentality in our leadership. The black caucus is full of them.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Obviously you missed Trump's response to the reporter who asked Trump what he planned to discuss with Putin.
    Trump reflexively responded: None of your business.

    So Trump was acting as if he were still in private industry and isn't a president who is answers to the American public.

    BTW there is nothing professional about Trump or the dumpster fire he calls an administration.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Stop your BS.

    You know that Obama went to McConnell and Ryan to make joint statement about Russian meddling but they refused so Obama being the non-partisan decided to not make the meddling known.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Why?

    2016 was a dry run. The Russians are going to interfere in next year's election and the Republicans have refused to do anything about it.

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    Does she know about Mayor Pete's local problems with his black constituents?

  • http://batman-news.com Roderick2011

    She has too many liabilities that the GOP would exploit.

    She's Hindu non-Christian)
    She's not ADOS
    She's married to a white man

  • TransMichelle

    Yep...but black folks don't care. The Dems, liberals, and anti-Americans have black folks on speed dial.

  • Ryan

    Huh? The person who runs this blog is republican and they chose to post this. The Russian thing is a afterthought at this point - if they mess with the election again next year there's really nothing that can stop them.

    No question who wears the pants in that relationship.

    Obama wanted to make a statement. He was free to make any statement any time he wanted regardless of what Mcconnell said or didn't say. The 4 leaders in congress had made a statement about election interference just a few months earlier.

    Turn the channel once in a while.

    again though, we have been involved in election meddling for a long time.

    It wasn't McConnell or Ryan.

    No Obama wasn't free to do anything because if he had Republicans would have accused him of interfering in the election.

    When Obama asked McConnell and Ryan to agree to a bipartisan statement they didn't even take him seriously that the Russians interfered in the election.

    Nancy Pelosi Folds: Confirms House Will Reluctantly Pass Trump's Emergency Migrant Border Bill. Oh yeah, Piglosi scrapped the idea of impeaching The Donald too. Remember all that bullsh*t talk about how The Donald was going to be impeached. It's amazing you people here just don't get it. You don't understand nuance and fall for the game hook-line-and-sinker. Me and others on here kept telling you that The Donald WOULD NOT be impeached and the Demoncrats (and their followers) are doing nothing but bluffing. They are the REAL criminals and The Donald has the goods on them. Now the fools want Mueller to testify before Congress basically shooting themselves in the foot. They had bet all their money on the Mueller report (and some of you clowns here were saying "yeez just wait Mueller gonna get em' Just wait"..HAHAHAHA what naive people you are) "The irony is that all the questions the Demoncrats want to ask Mueller, he's NOT entitled to answer. He can't answer any questions involving the investigation of The Donald or his campaign because that was the essence of the report," Dershowitz said.

    Excellent comment from a Political forum I follow:

    Donnie's an embarrassment, the photo-op POTUS. He hangs out with the dictators and bully's at the G20 summits because everybody else has realized long ago that he's a liar and everything that comes out of his mouth has no sincerity and can't be relied upon.

    Theresa May has more balls than Donnie, saying what had to be said to Putin and Bin Salman. Donnie on the other hand, the dictators and tyrants can't believe their good fortune that the U.S. has enabled a village idiot to become president. They don't even need to do anything, Donnie flip flops all on his own in face-to-face meetings, in his efforts to impress them. So much for the Huawei ban, Donnie doesn't mention the Meng case as he said he would, but gives Xi Jinping a freebie in exchange for restarting trade negotiations yet another immediate claim of standing up for and winning big for farmers. U.S. farmers should all be rich by now given all the "deals" Donnie has done that include the other country buying $billions of farm products from them. Too bad those farmers aren't VIP enough to be invited to Donnie's 4th of July party.

    And lastly, tweeting for a quick meetup and handshake photo-op with Kim at the DMZ border in Korea, it's called ignorance, arrogance, and treason. Anything but the diplomacy that he thinks it is in that tiny little mind of his.
