Putin was accused of interfering with the election, seeing Trump triumph over democrat leader Hillary Clinton, something that United States citizens were hoping would be addressed in Monday's summit in Helsinki. "There are lots of people out there".
Amid bipartisan condemnation of Trump's embrace of a longtime US enemy in Helsinki, the USA president delivered a rare admission of error Tuesday.
The Russian list includes Browder, the Ziff brothers and former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, as well as an ex-MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, who compiled an explosive dossier alleging connections between Russia and the Trump campaign and warning that the Kremlin had compromising information on the president.

The tweets came a day after Mr Trump said he had missed out a word when appearing to support Mr Putin's claim that there was no Russian involvement in the 2016 U.S. presidential election.
Less than a week later, the President's understanding of that evidence has been severely tested, as the White House tries to contain the damage from his widely condemned news conference Monday with Putin.
Cecilia Vega, the ABC News reporter who asked the question, said on Twitter that she believes the president heard her clearly. Montenegro is a tiny country with very strong people.
"The President said, 'Thank you very much, ' and said no to answering questions".
Montenegro joined North Atlantic Treaty Organisation a year ago in defiance of Moscow after accusing Russian spies of orchestrating an attempted coup to derail the accession.
