In a rare televised press conference, the Pentagon chief said the department has received no directives on adjusting the US mission in Syria or other military matters involving Moscow, as a result of last Monday's controversial summit between Mr. Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin.

The president ramped up his rhetoric against the Islamic Republic on Sunday, saying on Twitter that the USA won't tolerate Iran's "DEMENTED WORDS OF VIOLENCE & DEATH" - a response to a warning Iran's president made to Trump.

Standing next to Russian President Vladimir Putin last Monday, President Trump said he had "confidence in both parties", referring to the US and Russia. Seventy percent of GOP respondents told pollsters they do not believe there was compromising information, while only 18% said there was. Just 6 percent of Democrats said they felt the same way. Trump's approval is up one percentage point from June and is at its highest point relative to previous polls of presidential approval jointly conducted by the Wall Street Journal and NBC News reports Breitbart News.

Just 35 percent of U.S. voters believe Russian Federation don't have information on Trump and the remaining 13 percent said they do not know.

Since then, Russian forces backing the Assad regime and USA forces battling the Islamic State in Syria since 2014 have maintained an uneasy detente with both sides attempting to keep out of each other's paths in the country.

The US President himself argued if Russian Federation had compromising material then "it would have been out long ago". Fifty-seven percent of respondents said they anticipate more meddling in November.

Most Republicans have the opposite view, however.

"People have picked sides on these issues", Miringoff said. It's a lot to wrap your head around, but we don't put anything past him.
