'I misspoke' on Russian Federation election meddling

'I misspoke' on Russian Federation election meddling

In Helsinki, as Putin looked on, Trump said the following to a question about whether he believed USA intelligence agencies, or Putin's denials of interference: "My people came to me ... they said they think it's Russian Federation".

Those comments came after Mr. Trump struggled to blame Russian Federation for election meddling in the Monday press conference in Helsinki, when Mr. Trump said all he could do is "ask the question" about meddling and said Putin was very strong in his denials.

While Trump has faced intense criticism over Helsinki, he is not entirely without defenders. He said that Russian Federation "did meddle with our elections" and that he would consider further sanctions against Moscow. "Sadly, it's not being reported that way - the Fake News is going insane!"

"President Trump is at best extremely weak and gullible on the worldwide stage, and at worst is beholden financially, politically, or personally to a hostile foreign power", Polis said in a series of posts on Twitter. Bob Corker of Tennessee.

But Paul has maintained that the outrage is less about substance and more about "Trump derangement syndrome".

He went on to say Mr Trump had shown he was both "unable" and "unwilling" to stand up to Mr Putin, labelling the USA leader's performance a "pathetic rout".

The political firestorm over his performance in Helsinki has engulfed the administration and spread to his fellow Republicans, eclipsing most of the frequent controversies that have erupted during Trump's turbulent 18 months in office.

His remarks, siding with a foe on foreign soil over his own government, was a stark illustration of Trump's willingness to upend decades of US foreign policy and rattle Western allies in service of his political concerns. But I have - I have confidence in both parties. "Russia's attacks on our electoral system damage the very democratic principles upon which our country was built".

Standing alongside Putin, Trump steered clear of any confrontation with the Russian, going so far as to question American intelligence and last week's federal indictments that accused 12 Russians of hacking into Democratic email accounts to hurt Hillary Clinton in 2016.

Facing widespread backlash, President Donald Trump backpedals from remarks made during Helsinki summit in which he appeared to side with Russian president's denials of interfering in the 2016 USA election.

He said he had just reviewed the transcripts and a clip of the answer he gave at the summit and realized he needed to clarify his statement.

Going into Monday's meeting in Helsinki, Trump said he wanted to improve relations with Russian Federation, which he characterized as the worst they've ever been.

In general, United States media organizations covered the early stops in President Trump's tour through Europe conventionally, which, in the Trump era, means that the tour played as spectacle.

Both Democrats and Republicans had slammed Trump's performance a day earlier at a summit in Helsinki, Finland, where he praised Putin, a former KGB intelligence officer who told Trump that Russian Federation did not interfere in the election.

Speaking after the summit, prominent Republican senator John McCain said: "Today's press conference in Helsinki was one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory. Sadly, it is not being reported that way - the Fake News is going insane!" the president tweeted Tuesday morning. Rand Paul, R-Kentucky, have defended Mr. Trump.

One tweeter hit back at the president, writing: 'Fake News, huh?

Paul's efforts drew praise from Trump, who tweeted: "Thank you @RandPaul, you really get it!"
