    Da Nang, Vietnam (CNN) President Donald Trump suggested on Saturday he's done confronting Russian President Vladimir Putin over his country's election meddling since it's insulting to the Russian leader.

    Trump said he took Putin at his word that Russia did not seek to interfere in the US presidential election last year, despite a finding from US intelligence agencies that it did. The fraught relations between the two leaders was underscored anew when Putin's spokesman said election meddling did not come up when they spoke, even though Trump said it did.

    And he stressed that bigger issues persist between the United States and Russia that require the two leaders to move on.

    "He said he didn't meddle. He said he didn't meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times," Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One as he flew from Da Nang to Hanoi in Vietnam. Trump spoke to Putin three times on the sidelines of summit here, where the Russia meddling issue arose.

    "Every time he sees me, he says, 'I didn't do that,'" Trump said. "And I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it."
    So there!!!!

    Russia just announced that CNN must register its personnel as 'foreign agents' in order to conduct interviews there. -A bit of karma that CNN should've seen coming.

    The 'old' CNN would've had access to a Russian President in a setting like the Pacific Summit. They could've asked Vlad that, themselves.

    Asking the President about asking Vlad, goes nowhere.

    SNL had some fun with this on Saturday, even though Alec Baldwin wasn't on. They did a Roy Moore sketch, that had an actor playing Pence lecturing him about his scandal. There was a comment or question regarding taking the issue to the boss and the Pence character said "I don't think I need to take it to Putin". Pence also told Moore that it didn't help with his defense that he dressed like Woody from Toy Story.
