Putin has been driven closer to China by a sharp decline in relations with the West after Moscow's 2014 annexation of Crimea and support for a separatist insurgency in eastern Ukraine.
"The experience I have with the US President shows that, despite the fact that his actions are often criticized, especially recently, including in the worldwide arena and in the area of economy, nevertheless, this experience shows me that he is a reasonable man, he knows how to listen and responds to the arguments given by the interlocutor".
Mr Trump made the comment at the White House after hours of further escalating his rhetoric against longtime allies over USA trade practices.
President Trump on Saturday doubled down on his calls for Russian Federation to be reinstated to the G-7 group of nations, saying that the group would be more meaningful if that country could be brought back into the fold.
"Both share scepticism towards American hegemony and distrust USA intentions, both are authoritarian personalistic rulers", he said.
Russian Federation was admitted to the club at the annual summit in Denver, Colorado in the Western United States, amid tensions within the group, with U.S. President Bill Clinton and British Prime Minister Tony Blair pushing for Moscow's inclusion while other members of the G-7 opposing the decision.
But Mr Trump insisted it would be an "asset" to have Vladimir Putin back at the summit table.
Trump contends that other countries "have been taking advantage of the United States on trade".
When Donnie Trump asked a gaggle of reporters last week, "Why are we having a meeting without Russian Federation being in the meeting?" no one answered. But he downplayed the tension, saying, "When it all straightens out, we'll all be in love again".
Trump has also said that his meeting with Emmanuel Macron, the French President is the test of trade but they are working out the differences efficiently.
"Maybe the American president doesn't care about being isolated today, but we don't mind being six, if needs be", Macron said.
On Sunday, Trump's chief economic adviser, Larry Kudlow, accused Trudeau of undermining the United States and its allies with comments at the G7 summit. They are also a fresh reminder that efforts by other leaders to woo Trump in hopes of swaying his opinion have been largely unsuccessful.
"I share his concern".
Iranian President Hassan Rouhani, whose country is an observer member of the SCO, will also attend the summit at a time when China and Russian Federation are seeking to save the Iran nuclear deal following Trump's withdrawal from the pact.
Stepping onto the world stage for a pair of high-profile summits, President Donald Trump is scrambling the usual breakdown of allies and adversaries. There must be a clear understanding between the leaders of the two nuclear superpowers before some mishap somewhere results in unimaginable catastrophe for both countries and for the whole world. "And we've made a lot of progress today", Trump said. "It will start first of all to hurt U.S. workers". Some countries have retaliated with their own levies on US imports. "Everyone agreed, including President Trump".
Critics argue that the growing USA isolation is risky at a time when Trump is making diplomatic overtures with North Korea and in the Middle East and could use the support of allies. Ali was convicted in 1967 of avoiding military service.
"Italy's global position is absolutely not in question, but we are certainly in favour of dialogue and we are very attentive that sanctions should not impact Russian civil society", Conte said, according to Italy's public news agency, ANSA. Noting Ali's conviction had been overturned, Tweel said "there is no conviction from which a pardon is needed". From there, he planned to jet to Singapore for an unprecedented summit with the leader of North Korea, which is technically still in a state of war with the US and considered by Trump's administration to be a state sponsor of terrorism. Trump criticizing the Group of Seven nations host and stepped back from the generally positive tone that had ended the two-day meeting in Quebec.
Pruitt, Trump said, "is doing a great job within the walls of the EPA".
Putin also said they discussed Iran but didn't provide details.
