I gave up ‘nothing’ in Russia summit

  • I gave up ‘nothing’ in Russia summit

"President Putin, he just said it's not Russian Federation".

And later at a joint news conference with the Kremlin strongman, Trump sided with Putin over the USA intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 election.

"People have lost focus of the good that has come out of that meeting".

In the same interview on Thursday, Coats publicly broke with Trump over his decision to meet privately with Putin in Helsinki, Finland, saying, "if he had asked me how that ought to be conducted, I would have suggested a different way".

Trump then goes on to elaborate that the Mueller probe is, in fact, a "witch hunt".

Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on the findings of USA intelligence agencies that released a report in January 2017 saying they concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered a hacking-and-propaganda campaign targeting the election.

GOP Sen. John McCain called Trump's performance at the news conference "disgraceful", and House Speaker Paul Ryan publicly contradicted the president when he said "there is no question that Russian Federation interfered in our election".


The man he is trying to unseat in November's election, two-term Democratic U.S. Sen. Half of the poll was conducted before and the day of Trump's infamous joint press conference with Putin in Helsinki and half was conducted the day after.

However, Trump sent out a tweet last night saying the following. Pat Toomey of Pennsylvania, did not shy away from criticizing Trump's comments in Helsinki. "I think the Russians elected a former KGB agent and he spends all of his time and their resources squandering it on penny ante spy tactics". "I don't understand the apparent blindness (Trump) has to Putin's hostile acts".

Dealing with the fallout from two summits at once, President Donald Trump says he's "very happy" with the pace of North Korea's denuclearization, despite Kim Jong Un having taken no major steps toward that aim since their summit in Singapore last month.

Moscow has said "agreements" had been reached over the situation in Syria.

Criticizing Trump is, perhaps, something Barletta will never do: Barletta makes no bones about his hope that the coalition that propelled Trump to a win of less than 1 percentage point in Pennsylvania over Democrat Hillary Clinton will deliver a victory for him in November.

Trump's high rating, up one percent from June, is thanks largely to support of Republicans, 88 percent of whom told pollsters that they approve of the job he's doing. Vice President Mike Pence, meanwhile, is headlining a fundraiser for Barletta in Philadelphia on Monday.

As Trump flip flops between agreeing that there was Russian interference in elections and saying that it's untrue, the White House scrambles to explain.
