He said Trump had raised accusations of Russian interference in United States elections. "That must be the intelligence agencies".

"Who do you believe?" One wannabe strongman who prefers palling around with despots, usually with the sort of unbridled power that Trump wishes he had, instead of talking to democratic leaders whose leadership styles depend on building consensus. "2016 was a testing ground and they will try in the future the outcome of any number of elections around the world which they see as crucial for their national interest", Tchantouridze said.

He did not directly mention Trump, but his comments were clearly a response to the President's heavily criticised performance in Helsinki.

Donald Trump has backtracked on his claim that he "didn't see any reason" why Russian Federation would be involved in U.S. election meddling.

"I think the president owes the American people, and more importantly he owes the intelligence community, all the information that was shared in those two hours when nobody was present", Emanuel said during the news conference at police headquarters.

"The Russians are not our friends and I entirely believe the assessment of our intelligence community."
"North Atlantic Treaty Organisation has never been more together", he said at a breakfast meeting with the Finnish President Sauli Niinisto.

Despite getting pushback for the comments he made, he repeated that sentiment when he sat down with Carlson.

Standing side-by-side on stage with the man accused of complicity in an attack on the very bedrock of American democracy, Trump said his intelligence people "think it's Russian Federation". Trump never admits he was wrong, so his attempt at a do-over yesterday - saying he meant to say he didn't see a reason why Russian Federation "wouldn't" have interfered in the election, instead of "would" - is an indication that even he realizes he finally hit the wall.

The president also vowed to stop Russian Federation or any other country from cyber attacks on this year's midterm elections. There are a lot of people out there. "There was no collusion at all".

Meanwhile, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said, "it's what I wish he would have said initially, and I'm glad he said it now". Mr. Obama assured the Russian: "Let me get reelected first", he said, "then I'll have a better chance of making something happen. on all these issues, but particularly missile defense. this can be solved, but it's important for him to give me space... this is my last election".

Rick Wilson, a conservative who has always been critical of Mr Trump, says elected party members are horrified by his latest controversy. "They are motivated by their persistent and consistent dislike of the president". "I am nervous that the longer this goes on that it's harder to fix and that the allies will take different roads and will decide that we are not dependable". "This was the nightmare scenario", another Republican in frequent contact with the administration said... "I didn't know [Putin]" during the election, Trump said.

Many Republicans are laying the groundwork to ignore the conclusions of Special Counsel Robert Mueller's inquiry, which President Trump calls a "witch hunt".

"Just standing and selling your country downriver on foreign soil in front of your adversary - there's no precedent for such disgraceful and irrational behavior", Brinkley said.
