Amid harsh criticism, Trump tries a tougher tone on Russian Federation

What drew particular skepticism was Trump's explanation that he misspoke one word, that he meant to say "wouldn't" and not "would", as in "I don't see any reason why it would" be Russian Federation.

BOB MENENDEZ: Pro-Kremlin media at this moment are putting out more information supposedly about agreements that were arrived by President Trump with President Putin than anything that I know as the senior-most Democrat on this committee, that as far as I know that any member of the committee knows and that the American people know. After a meeting with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo earlier this month, North Korean officials described the USA stance during the talks as regrettable, gangster-like and cancerous.

As he said it, the lights in the White House flickered as if Putin was in the next room trying to shut him down. "The president and his administration are working very hard to make sure that".

POTUS was immediately questioned on whether he had raised Russia's meddling in the United States election, and he pivoted to a weird rant about Hillary Clinton and the ongoing independent counsel investigation into his campaign's alleged collusion with Russian Federation.

But the agencies' responses were contradicted by White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, who said the president's "team" is considering the Russian request, which Trump at the summit had called "an incredible offer".

Trump returned to the subject of his relationship with Putin later Wednesday morning, asserting that some people would rather go to war than see him get along well with Putin.

He added on Thursday afternoon: "To see scenes we've witnessed over the past month means everything to us as players and staff". We have the chance to win a medal at the World Cup, which only one other English team has ever done.


He also told CBS that he holds Putin responsible for Russian interference in the 2016 campaign and that he agrees with the USA intelligence community's conclusions. "It's insane and should be called insane and outrageous, not just by me, but by the USA government", McFaul said. "So certainly as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible", the US President said.

"The sentence should have been, "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't, or why it wouldn't be Russia" instead of "why it would", Trump said Tuesday of the comments he had made in Helsinki. Asked before a cabinet meeting at the White House whether Russian Federation was still targeting the US, Mr Trump shook his head and said: "No". I think that Dan Coats is excellent.

"It's imperative we get to the bottom of what is going on so we can be prepared to protect ourselves in advance of the 2018 elections", Graham said.

Some Democrats cast Trump's remarks as only the latest worrisome signal of the president's loyalties.

"Well, I would, because he's in charge of the country".

"These actions are persistent".

He has "full faith" in United States intelligence agencies, he went on to say, and that he accepted their findings that Russian Federation had meddled in the elections.

"We never said, 'Just kidding, '" she said, adding: "You can take the fact that the president has credibility because he saw that he had misspoken, and he wanted to clarify that yesterday, which he did".

"Also, the rest of us less intelligent people in America thought your performance in Helsinki was disgraceful", Lieu said.

Asked in the CBS interview Wednesday whether he agrees with Coats's assessment, Trump said that he does - a shift from an interview with the same network last weekend in which he cast doubt on his intelligence chief's warnings. "I'd accept that. He's an expert".

She said the extra spending on border security was "essential to deterring, preventing, and denying illegal border crossings by would-be illegal immigrants, human traffickers, criminal aliens, child smugglers, and drug dealers".
