Trump contradicts own remarks on alleged Russian meddling

Mr Trump was trying to make clear after his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin that he fully supports the USA intelligence community and its finding that Russia interfered in the 2016 elections. Among other things, Trump refused to denounce Putin and Russian Federation for interfering in the 2016 presidential election and attacked special counsel Robert MuellerRobert Swan MuellerSasse: US should applaud choice of Mueller to lead Russian Federation probe MORE's probe, calling it a "disaster" for the country.

He said he accepted the intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation had meddled in the election, and offered a rambling explanation of his assertion that he could not see "any reason" why Russian Federation would interfere.

"So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki", Trump tweeted early Wednesday morning. Every US intelligence agency has concluded that Russian Federation did.

The return of American remains from the Korean War was one of the agreements made by President Donald Trump and North Korean leader Kim Jong Un last month at their historic summit in Singapore.

The Terminator star's comments of disappointment come after Trump's recent visit to the U.K.to meet Queen Elizabeth.

"I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today."
I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be". "The sentence should have been.'I don't see any reason why it WOULDN'T be Russia", Trump said.

"I think there's a lot we can do together", the Senate's No. 2 Republican, John Cornyn of Texas, responded.

This means that the poll registered no drop in Trump's approval from the outrage expressed on many cable news channels and on social media.

"But the president didn't want to address it in front of Vladimir Putin, which is a head-scratcher", said Bartiromo, who recently came under fire for a friendly interview with Trump in which she repeatedly agreed with or glossed over the president's controversial or misleading statements. "And if they refused too, then Congress should subpoena".

He said the sentence should have been, "I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation", rather than, "I don't see any reason why it would be Russian Federation".

"There's a possibility that we may well take up legislation related to this", McConnell said on Capitol Hill Tuesday after mentioning Sen.

Foreign Relations Committee, told reporters.

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.
