Republican U.S. Senator Rand Paul said on Wednesday he delivered a letter from President Donald Trump to Russian President Vladimir Putin's government, but the senator and the White House offered different characterizations of the message.

At the time, uncertainty about what Mr Trump and Mr Putin discussed during the private meeting in which members of the press were also banished from caused a stir. That summit was widely criticized on Capitol Hill for Trump's failure to side with USA intelligence officials who say Putin was responsible for Russia's theft of Democratic emails and use of social media propaganda in 2016.

Back in Washington, Trump clarified his remarks and has said that Russian Federation interfered, but has continued to call the claim that Russian Federation tried to help him win and Mueller's investigation "a big hoax".

"The document is a draft and that it could change", The Washington Post said, citing a White House official.

The White House told Fox News that Paul asked Trump to write a letter of introduction to the Russian leader. On the Senate floor, Paul objected to a resolution expressing support for the intelligence community, as well as special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, calling it a sign of "Trump derangement syndrome".

In addition, Putin in Helsinki allegedly spoke with trump about the new ban the deployment of weapons in outer space and called for the establishment of a consultative mechanism at the level of Ministers of defence and foreign Affairs.

The president later corrected some of his remarks, saying he misspoke. In addition to tensions over election meddling, the two countries are also at odds over Syria and Ukraine.

Paul's colleagues in the Senate from both parties introduced legislation last week to impose strict new sanctions on Russian Federation.

Among the proposals Putin's Trump - extension for five years of validity of the contract on Strategic offensive arms (start-III). The U.S. director of national intelligence would be required to conclude if any foreign nations interfered in elections one month after Americans cast their votes, triggering strict sanctions within 10 days if interference was detected.
