The historic meeting contained more than a few controversial revelations, and the media is apparently fixating on Putin's admission that he wanted Trump to win in 2016, as both Trump and Putin denied that Russia had meddled in the race or had colluded, as well as Trump's unwillingness to publicly condemn Russian interference.
As Trump declared the Cold War (and the more-recent tensions between the US and Putin's regime) "a thing of the past," Putin admitted that he wanted Trump to win "because he talked about bringing US-Russia relations back to normal."
Asked point-blank if he had collected "compromising material" on President Trump when Trump traveled to Moscow for the Miss Universe pageant in 2013, Putin said he wasn't even aware of Trump's visit at the time, and that there were hundreds of American business luminaries in town at the same time. Collecting information on all of them would have been impossible, Putin said. Trump added that if Russia did have the long-rumored kompromat, "it would have been out long ago."
