Donald Trump calls negative coverage of his Putin meeting 'fake news'

‘You Stood There Like a Little Wet Noodle’: Schwarzenegger Slams Trump After Putin News Conference

Arnold Schwarzenegger calls Donald Trump a "little wet noodle"

Warner told CNN that he didn't believe Trump, who said that he "misspoke" Monday when he said he saw no reason why it "would be Russia" who interfered with the US presidential election in 2016, siding with Putin's version over his own intelligence agencies.

The comments were the first he has delivered publicly since he landed in the United States Monday, fresh off his summit with Putin in Helsinki, Finland. But, I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today.

In February, 13 other Russians were also indicted on similar charges. There are a lot of people out there.

Trump has previously claimed that he believes the USA intelligence agencies.

"I would like to clarify, in a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word "would" instead of 'wouldn't.' The sentence should have been: 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation, '" he said. "I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia".

He added: 'I will say this: I don't see any reason why it would be, but I really do want to see the server'.

During his Tuesday remarks, Trump also said that his administration took the threat of continued Russian interference seriously and vowed to move aggressively to "repel" any efforts by Moscow to interfere in future US elections.

House Democrats say they will try to force a vote affirming the intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 US elections, and endorsing Ryan's statement rebuking President Trump. "There was nobody to collude with".

But when asked specifically whether he also condemned Trump's defence of the former Russian intelligence officer, Trudeau only targeted Russia.

"There was no collusion at all".

During the press conference following their one-on-one meeting, Putin gave Trump an official ball from the recently completed 2018 FIFA World Cup. He defended President Trump's skepticism to CBS News Tuesday citing the president's experience on the receiving end of "partisan investigations".

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said he wouldn't critique Trump's appearance with Putin.

'As I said today and many times before, 'I have GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people.' However, I also recognize that in order to build a brighter future, we can not exclusively focus on the past - as the world's two largest nuclear powers, we must get along!

I'm glad that Trump has repudiated his absurd statement in Helsinki and now agrees with what our intelligence community has said for over a year.

The defensive tweet came after Trump was hit with harsh criticism for refusing to blame Putin for Russian interference during his presidential election in 2016.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell issued strong words of support for North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies that Trump had criticised during an alliance summit days before his meeting with Putin.
