While the infamous Robert Mueller report that investigates Russia's interference in the presidential elections, still clouds the US politics and has even threatened the chair of the President, Donald Trump managed to jest about the contentious presidential elections of 2016 during his bilateral meet with Russia President Vladimir Putin on the sidelines of G20 Summit in Japan. 

The US President during a media interaction, with a smile on his face, asked the Russian President to not meddle in the US Presidential elections of 2020 and made a finger gesture. 

"Don't meddle in the election, please," said the US President, drawing a smile and silence from the Russian President. 

Shrugging the otherwise differences between the two countries, from Iran to Syria in the recent times, Trump surprinsingly stated that he shares a 'very, very good relationship' with Putin and added that 'many positive things are going to come out of the relationship.'
