White House clarifies Trump's statements about Russian interference in U.S

Donald Trump thinks intelligent people approve of him

She said Trump was answering "no" to reporters' requests to ask questions - not to whether he believes Russian Federation is still targeting the United States.

"The only reason there was a walk-back is that the president was forced by pressure from many of my Republican friends here, from his allies in the media, and his own White House staff", Schumer said on the Senate floor.

In rebutting Trump's dismissive comments about USA intelligence on Monday, Coats said in a statement, "We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

The White House said on Wednesday that there is "still" a threat of Russian meddling in the USA elections, claiming that president Donald Trump was not referring to that issue when he responded to journalists hours earlier.

Grassley said that this week President Trump "missed a real opportunity" when he failed to denounce Russia's interference in the 2016 election that sent Trump to the White House. "And there's been no president ever as tough as I have been on Russia", Trump said before the Cabinet meeting, adding that Putin "understands it and he's not happy about it".

"I had a chance to speak with the president after his comments, and the president was - said, "Thank you very much, ' and was saying 'no" to answering questions", Sanders said. "We continue to urge Russian authorities to work with the US Department of Justice to pursue those in Russia who in fact perpetrated the fraudulent scheme that Russia refers to that targeted not only Mr Browder, but also his company and. the Russian people as a whole".

Trump's comments during the interview and U.S. intelligence assessments conflicted with Putin's denials that Russian Federation had interfered with the 2016 election.

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

While repeating his attacks on the FBI, Justice Department and Clinton, Trump also said that he did not "see any reason why it would be" Russian Federation who interfered in the 2016 election.

US President Donald Trump speaks by phone with Russia's President Vladimir Putin in the Oval Office at the White House, January 28, 2017.


"In a key sentence in my remarks I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't", he said.

"And he shouldn't be happy about it because there's never been a president as tough on Russian Federation as I have been".

Since the election, there has been great suspicion over the relationship between Trump and President Putin.

In rebutting Trump's dismissive comments about USA intelligence on Monday, Coats said in a statement, "We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

Talking about North Korea, Trump said that Russian Federation agreed to help with North Korea.

Rep. Peter Welch, D-Vt., called Trump's comments with Putin "stunningly reckless" in a statement on Monday.

USA lawmakers are calling for a court demand to be issued for the notes of the U.S. translator who accompanied Mr Trump to his two-hour meeting with Mr Putin. "We're taking steps, we're making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again because we take it seriously and because we recognise that our election systems are incredibly important and is certainly a cornerstone of our democracy", the presidential adviser said.

Trump told CBS News that he holds Putin responsible "because he's in charge of the country, just like I consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in this country. It is truly unbelievable", Clapper said on CNN Monday, after Trump's press conference.

In an unprecedented attack, former Central Intelligence Agency director and ardent Trump critic John Brennan, tweeted that Trump's "news conference performance" was "nothing short of treasonous".
