Vladimir Putin says Trump believed his denials that Russia meddled in U.S. election

Vladimir Putin met with President Donald Trump at the G20 Summit, and when Trump reportedly brought up Russia’s hacking of the presidential elections on Friday, the Russian president denied doing it.
Apparently, that was good enough for Trump, and Putin said as much during his press conference Saturday.
“[Trump] .asked a lot of questions on this subject, I was able to answer—answered all of these questions,” Putin said, via CBS News. “I think he took this into consideration and agreed, but, in fact, how he reacted to this … ask him.”
Unfortunately for anybody who’d like to hear from Trump on the matter, he declined to have a post-Summit press conference, unlike most of the other foreign leaders in attendance.
On Friday, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Trump had accepted Putin’s denial, though that wasn’t quite the story put out by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson on Friday.
“I think the president is rightly focused on how do we move forward from something that may be an intractable disagreement at this point,” Tillerson said
Earlier this week, Trump said he thought Russia had interfered.
“Well, I think it was Russia, and I think it could have been other people and other countries. Could have been a lot of people interfered,” Trump said. “I said it very simply. I think it could very well have been Russia, but I think it could well have been other countries—and I won’t be specific, but I think a lot of people interfere.”
Either way, the Russian president said the relationship between Putin and Trump had been “established” at the Summit.
“I do not know how this will sound, but I will say as I see it: Trump on TV is very different from the real person,” Putin said

Why did the French president make such an effort to stand next to Trump at the G20 Summit?

When Donald Trump literally shoved his way past Montenegro’s prime minister to be at the front of a group photo of NATO leaders in March, the internet had a field day with the president’s strong-arming ways. On Friday, French President Emmanuel Macron displayed his own method of getting around several world leaders before a photo op at the G20 Summit so he could stand next to Trump. Watch as Macron graciously makes his way past Canada Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, India Prime Minister Narendra Modi, and Japan Prime Minister Shinzo Abe in order to stand on the of Trump, who was standing at the far end of the bottom row of leaders.


The question is why Macron made such an effort? Was it because he was trying to make one last chance at convincing Trump to return the U.S. back into the Paris Climate Accord (if that was the case, Macron failed)? Was Macron discussing handshake technique?
