United States President Donald Trump may seems initiating sour relationship with Russia even though he was on positive note few days before in a summit with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, Finland.

Lately he has rejected the proposal of Putin to allow Russian officials to interrogate a former US ambassador and other American citizens saying the idea is an incredible offer.

Meanwhile, outrage is being seen in US about how Putin ever can consider such proposal.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders said, “It is a proposal that was made in sincerity by President Putin, but President Trump disagrees with it.”

In fact the Russian leader unveiled the proposal after the summit while briefing to the media jointly with Trump on Monday.

Putin was asked whether there could be the extradition of twelve Russian intelligence agents who were indicted in US very recently for hacking Democratic Party computers.

The leader said, “We can actually permit official representatives of the United States… into the country and they will be present at this questioning.” Putin added further that they would thereafter expect US to reciprocate.

Trump on his part said to the media the offer is an incredible one and Congress would not allow this to happen.

The latest statement from Sanders makes thing clear that such deal with Russia was not in the cards and probably the 12 identified individuals need to come to US to prove their innocence.
