The Trump-Putin meeting is facing bipartisan criticism in Congress.
South Carolina Republican Senator Lindsey Graham tweeted that Trump missed an opportunity to hold Russia accountable for meddling in the 2016 presidential election. Graham also said Trump should have given Putin a strong warning to stay out of future U.S. elections.
Virginia Democratic Senator Mark Warner stressed that Russia "massively intervened" in the presidential election. He said it's clear that Russia's aim was to help Donald Trump and hurt Hillary Clinton.
GOP House Speaker Paul Ryan said there is no question that Russia interfered in the election and continues efforts to undermine democracy in the U.S. and around the world. He said President Trump must appreciate that Russia is "not our ally" and must hold Russia accountable.
Arizona Republican Senator Jeff Flake tweeted that it is "shameful" that Trump would blame the U.S. for Russia's bad behavior.
Trump said both nations have been foolish over many years.
Nebraska Republican Senator Ben Sasse argued that blaming both countries was bizarre and flat-out wrong.
