President Donald Trump is coming under growing pressure from lawmakers to respond to allegations that Russia offered bounties for killing American troops in Afghanistan.

President Donald Trump told reporters in Washington that the details of his upcoming meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin is "none of your business."
