WASHINGTON — Following President Donald Trump’s closed-door meeting with Russian leader Vladimir Putin, Democratic veterans in Congress held a press conference where they rebuked the president’s actions.

“We know that he likes to act tough, with tweets behind closed doors and trash talk at political rallies in front of his supporters,” said Rep. Jimmy Panetta, D-Calif., “but I do not believe the people will accept a president who is unwilling to get tough with our adversaries.”
