In a news conference after meeting Vladimir Putin on Monday, Mr Trump also appeared to accept the Russian president's word over that of his own intelligence agencies regarding alleged Russian meddling in the 2016 USA election.
The narrative being pushed by the White House runs counter to Trump's own comments just yesterday saying he doesn't "see any reason why" Russian Federation would be interfering in the election, and called Putin's denial of meddling "strong and powerful".
USA intelligence officers concluded, in 2016, that Russian Federation authorised cyber attacks and fake news stories on social media which aimed to increase the chances of Mr Trump getting elected.
Sergei Lavrov, the Russian foreign minister, said separately that the talks were "better than super" in comments reported by Russian news agencies.
Trump's comments come after he demanded last week that North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies "reimburse" the U.S. for defence costs.

However, Mr Trump found support from Republican Senator Rand Paul, who blamed "Trump derangement syndrome" for the criticism - prompting a supportive tweet from the president himself.

House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said that Helsinki summit "proves that the Russians have something on the president, personally, financially, or politically". "I have President Putin". Vladimir Putin is not our friend and never has been. His regime's actions prove it. The posters, which are in Russian and English, went up ahead of today's meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki. After his electoral victory, which caught even Trump by surprise, the president reluctantly acknowledged Russian meddling in the election - the unanimous consensus of the intelligence community - while in the same breath suggesting other countries could be responsible. To Frum, the summit was a public showing of Russia's sway over the USA president. "This position is untenable and at odds with the forceful response this moment demands", she said.
