Trump strikes back at critics of Helsinki summit with Putin

As White House Declares Summit a Success, Sanders Rips Trump-Putin Presser as 'Embarrassing Spectacle'

White House denies Trump said Russia no longer targeting U.S.

In rebutting Mr Trump's dismissive comments about U.S. intelligence on Monday, Mr Coats said in a statement: "We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

Following a one-on-one meeting with Putin in Helsinki on Monday, Trump denigrated American intelligence institutions in defence of assertions by Putin that Russian Federation was not involved in attempts to influence the outcome of the 2016 presidential election.

"I'm interpreting what the president said, I'm not reversing it", Sanders said.

Trump also claimed he was "very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling", telling Glor he told Putin so in their one-on-one meeting.

The hosts of "Outnumbered" unanimously applauded "Fox News Sunday" anchor Chris Wallace for his tough one-on-one interview with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"He wants to work with his team and determine if there's any validity that would be helpful to the process", Sanders said.

Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations panel, has floated a resolution similar to Flake's. He also said he has faith in USA intelligence agencies.

On Wednesday, part of our discussion on Russian Federation and election interference looked at how Trump's actions might be seen among his supporters.

"We're going to have a massive effort to try to get to what happened".

However, despite her quick acclimation, it seems she "has found certain rules in the royal household hard to understand". Markle also pointed out that he's not a fan of royal protocol and the meticulous rules that must be followed.

"I wish the president hadn't backtracked, I just wish he'd stuck with what he said originally", said John from Worcester, Massachusetts.

Sanders explanation of Trump's "No" was the second time since Monday's summit that Trump and the White House have blamed a misstatement or misunderstanding for the furore over Russian Federation.

US President Donald Trump has been forced to backtrack after a media storm following his seeming defence of Russian Federation over claims of meddling in his country's presidential elections in 2016. So we called in Paula Reid, justice and legal affairs correspondent for CBS News and Julie Hirschfeld Davis, White House correspondent for The New York Times.

"I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", Mr Trump conceded on Tuesday.

He also offered a twisted explanation of his assertion in Helsinki that he could not see "any reason" why Russian Federation would interfere, claiming he misspoke.

More than 24 hours later, Trump took a stab at damage control, saying he misspoke and that the Russians could have meddled, though he added that "other people" could have as well. White House press secretary Sarah Sanders said the president actually was saying "no" to the prospect of answering more questions, not responding to the specific question.

"The sentence should have been: "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't" or "why it wouldn't be Russia".

Like Swalwell, Democratic leadership in both the House and Senate have tried to tamp down calls for Donald Trump's impeachment and most Democratic candidates have shied away from using it as a campaign issue in the 2018 national election.
