Republican senator proposes resolution backing USA intelligence agencies

Trump tried on Tuesday to calm a storm over his failure to hold Russian President Vladimir Putin accountable for meddling in the 2016 US election, saying he misspoke in a joint news conference in Helsinki.

Russia's President Vladimir Putin tried to lighten the mood at a post-summit news conference with US President Donald Trump on Monday by giving him a World Cup football which was made in Pakistan. "I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", he said.

He also said he accepts the American intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation interfered in the election, but he denied that his campaign had colluded in the effort.

"I have great confidence in my intelligence people".

Following his press conference with President Trump, Russian president Vladimir Putin sat down Monday with Fox News' Chris Wallace for an exclusive interview.

"I don't think the president is the only one in this political system in the United States that's guilty of conflating the two issues of meddling and collusion", Caputo said.

"There is no question that Russian Federation interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy", Ryan said in a statement.

"I beat Hillary Clinton easily and frankly we beat her.We won that race and it's a shame that there can be even a little bit of a cloud over it", he said.

Trump's refusal to condemn Putin and Russian Federation over the USA intelligence community's findings garnered harsh blowback.

He said that the media was at the summit in Helsinki to asked President Trump a "gotcha" question. "I think it is the terrorist groups who are to blame who destabilized the situation in the country". "But the journalists think it's all about them, which is what tells me that many of them, 'cause I think they still to this day get up every day hoping. this day is gonna be the day that whatever smoking gun evidence is out there is finally revealed that will allow them to get rid of Donald Trump".

Talking heads: When Putin called Trump the first time to congratulate him on his inauguration, they ended up speaking for an hour, despite interpreters.

"But to be clear, Trump yesterday lost any chance he had of ever being a legitimate American president".

Arizona Republican Sen. John McCain, chair of the Armed Services Committee, said the press conference was "one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory".

As the report noted, those insiders said Trump was "truthful" in his initial statements, noting that he truly did believe Vladimir Putin over the opinion of USA intelligence agencies.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll conducted after his news conference with Putin found that 55 percent of registered US voters disapproved of his handling of relations with Russian Federation, while 37 percent approved.
