Ortagus: Biggest Takeaway from Trump-Putin Meeting Is Putin and Lavrov Lied About It

‘They came out of meeting and lied about what happened between the president and the secretary of state’

HUNTSMAN: "Let’s start with your reaction on this. Morgan, start with you there was a lot of hype of what was going to be talked about this morning. Democrats saying he wasn’t going to bring up meddling in the election. That was the first thing he brought up." 
ORTAGUS: "I wasn’t surprised it was two and a half hours long and what’s going on around the world and where Russia is meddling. Russia is providing to our enemies in Afghanistan. You see ongoing issues in Ukraine. They could be potentially involved what’s going on in the Asian region as relates to North Korea. None of this surprises me it was that long. Listening to you and the team talk this morning, I agree one the biggest take aways for me is this the fact that the Russian president came out and lied right away. Lavrov lied about the meeting with trump. Have to deal with Russia. They are a player. You can’t ignore them they are a player in the Middle East. We have to be very careful in trusting them. They came out of meeting and lied about what happened between the president and the secretary of state tillerson had to deny what lavrov said to the media."
