If there is any good news for President Trump coming out of his summit meeting and press conference yesterday with Vladimir Putin, it may be that his widely condemned comments about Russia’s interference in the 2016 election have distracted attention from the rest of their agenda.

In his remarks to the press, the Russian dictator claimed bilateral agreement on a litany of initiatives ranging from past and future arms control measures, keeping weapons out of space, establishing a commission of academics, businessmen and others to advise on U.S.-Russian relations, “cooperation” on terrorism and cyber threats, saving the Iran deal, etc., etc.

These are among the hardy perennials of Kremlin efforts to subvert U.S. security. President Trump needs now to clarify — and walk back — any mandates for institutionalizing Moscow’s agenda in ways that would make the appalling Obama-Clinton "reset" with Russia seem robust.
