"I think we will end up having an extraordinary relationship, I hope so... getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing not a bad thing", he said.

But Trump attempted to keep the atmosphere upbeat, saying: 'Getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing, not a bad thing.

Critics and Trump's own advisers have urged Trump to use the summit to press Putin hard about "malign" activities.

"Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of USA foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!" he tweeted before the summit began.

The Russian ministry of foreign affairs tweeted its response, saying "We agree".

The summit began just hours after Trump blamed the United States - and not Russian election meddling or its annexation of Crimea - for a low-point in U.S. -Russia relations.

Trump has been reluctant to criticise Putin over the years and has described him in recent days not as an enemy but as a competitor. His 2016 opponent Hillary Clinton tweeted: "Great World Cup".

"I've not been here too long [as president], it's getting close to two years, but we'll be having an extraordinary relationship, I hope so".

For Putin, that the summit is even happening despite Russia's semi-pariah status among some Americans and US allies is a geopolitical win.

That attack on the alliance came on the heels of Trump's jarring appearance at a North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels, where he harshly criticised traditional allies over "delinquent" defence spending only to later confirm his commitment to the military alliance that has always been a bulwark against Russian aggression.
