Meeting With Putin "Even Better" Than With NATO, Says Trump

Meeting With Putin

Facing withering criticism over Monday's deferential joint news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, President Trump asserted Tuesday that he misspoke when he said that Russia had not interfered with the USA presidential election.

Mr Trump was speaking after returning from the Helsinki summit to widespread anger over his performance during a news conference with Vladimir Putin.

It was a missed opportunity for Trump to not publicly state his support for the conclusions of American intelligence officials and demand Russian Federation not interfere in any future elections, Murkowski said. "A lot of people out there".

Trump called Putin "extremely strong and powerful" in his denial of Russian interference, and said he doesn't "see any reason why" Russian hackers would have gotten involved with a US election - despite the recent indictment of 12 Russian intelligence officers for that exact crime.

Ryan also forcefully condemned Putin's denials of interference, indirectly taking a swipe at Trump, who said he found them credible.

This evening he said that what he meant to say was he didn't see any reason why Russian wouldn't be responsible for meddling in the 2016 vote.

But on Tuesday, Trump claimed that he misspoke, explaining that he meant to say that he saw no reason why it would not be Russian Federation. "I will say this, I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said. It came just three days after 12 Russian intelligence officials were indicted in the us for cyberattacks on the Democratic National Committee and the Democratic presidential campaign of Hillary Clinton.

In the U.S., the New York Post went with a headline of "See No Evil" with "Prez gives big Bear hug to wicked BFF Vlad, jabs USA intel", at the top of the page.

"Details from the private Trump-Putin talks in Helsinki will spill out in coming days, but Monday's joint press conference was a personal and national embarrassment", the conservative newspaper said in a scathing editorial.

"The Russian state has never interfered and is not going to interfere into internal American affairs including election process", Putin said.

FLOTUS Melania Trump has gone viral after a clip emerged which appears to show her face falling after being introduced to Vladimir Trump.

The condemnation for his performance at the Helsinki news conference, including from many fellow Republicans, matched or eclipsed previous controversies in Trump's turbulent 18 months in office.

Crapo introduced the bill "in response to Russia's violation of the territorial integrity of the Ukraine and Crimea, its brazen cyberattacks and interference in elections, and its continuing aggression in Syria", he said Monday.

The Russian leader came away from the summit as the alpha male in the room, easily besting his American counterpart.

Speaker of the House Paul Ryan, R-Wis., takes questions from reporters.

Sen. Chris Murphy, a Connecticut Democrat, asked in a Twitter comment, "If you're on the Trump national security team, and you've been out there saying how strong Trump is on Russian Federation and how serious our commitment is to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation, how do you not resign after the last four days?"

The president also offered thanks to Kentucky Republican Sen.

Lawmakers had urged Trump to press for the extradition of the 12 Russian intelligence agents named in the indictment but Putin did not commit to doing so.

That Trump could stand next to Putin and go out of his way to please the autocratic leader was "disgraceful", in the words of CNN's Anderson Cooper.

Spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said a 2 pm meeting with Members of Congress that had been closed to press would be opened up so that the president could make remarks on his trip to Finland.
