Trump Walks Back Russian Cybersecurity Partnership: We Discussed, but It Cannot Happen

It seems President Trump is backing away from his earlier proposal to set up a mutual cybersecurity partnership with Russia.

Trump initially floated the possibility during a series of tweets where he talked about his G20 meeting with Vladimir Putin and said it was time for a more constructive relationship with Russia. Trump was widely criticized today, not only for indications that he failed to hold Putin accountable for his wrongdoings, but also for suggesting a cybersecurity project with the nation that interfered with the 2016 election.

For now, it looks like Trump will keep touting the agreement he and Putin reached for a ceasefire in Syria.
