US President Donald Trump joked with Russia's Vladimir Putin as the two men sat down at the G20 for their first bilateral meeting at the G20 in Japan.
When asked by reporters if he'd raise the issue of election US interference with Putin, Trump laughed and with a smile told the Russian President to stay out of the 2020 vote.
"Don't meddle in the election," Trump said to Putin, wagging his finger at the Russian leader.
It was a lighthearted moment — in Trump’s mind — that came at the start of the men’s first meeting since the conclusion of Robert Mueller’s investigation.
The US special counsel found after an investigation that Russia had tried to interfere in the 2016 US presidential election, which he said should concern "every American."
Speaking on Friday, Trump said he enjoyed a “very, very good relationship” with Putin, and said “many positive things are going to come out of the relationship.”
