President Donald Trump refuses to tell the American people whether or not he has talked with President Vladimir Putin about Russia's bounty program to pay the Taliban to kill U.S. soldiers.
Trump was finally asked about it, and if he discussed it last week during his call with the President of the Russian Federation.
"We don't talk about what we discussed, but we had plenty of discussion," Trump told reporters when finally asked. He added, "I think it was very productive."
