Under a barrage of criticism from the left and the right over how he handled a press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin Monday, President Trump announced Thursday morning he plans to hold a second meeting with the Kremlin leader.

During an interview with CBS News Wednesday night, Trump said he holds Putin accountable for attacks on the U.S. election system in 2016.

During the White House briefing Wednesday, Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said President Trump addressed the issue of election meddling with Putin during their meeting in Helsinki and warned against it happening again.

"The President has made clear to Vladimir Putin that he should stay out of US elections," she said.
