Defiant Trump says he had 'absolute right' to share information with Russia
Trump says he wanted to share with Russian Federation "facts pertaining to terrorism and airline flight safety". Trump's claims, calling the reports that the US president disclosed intelligence "complete nonsense".

The huge cast features Andrea Riseborough, Sarah Silverman, Bill Pullman, Alan Cumming, Austin Stowell, Jessica Mcnamee, Natalie Morales, Fred Armisen, Martha MacIsaac, Mickey Sumner, Bridey Elliott, Eric Christian Olsen, Wallace Langham, Matt Malloy and Elisabeth Shue. They're all working under the direction of Little Miss Sunshine and Ruby Sparks filmmaking duo Jonathan Dayton and Valerie Faris with a script from Slumdog Millionaire writer Simon Beaufoy.

Battle of the Sexes' official synopsis continues, explaining that King was "trapped in the media glare", while noting the match's participants "were on opposite sides of a binary argument, but off-court each was fighting more personal and complex battles". King would break ground as a pioneer for women's equality, and while Riggs struggled with his off-court demons (namely gambling), King had to come to terms with her sexuality.

Battle of the Sexes swings into theaters September 22.
