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."


It's been 31 days since The New York Times reported that Russia is paying the Taliban to kill U.S. soldiers. Other news outlets have confirmed the news, and provided more details.
