Trump says Russian Federation isn't targeting U.S.; Sanders says comment was misinterpreted

19 Julio, 2018, 07:26 | Author: Enrique Watson

President Trump said in an interview airing Wednesday that he holds Russian President Vladimir Putin personally responsible for the Kremlin's attempts to meddle in the 2016 presidential election.

Amid bipartisan condemnation of Trump's embrace of a longtime USA enemy in Helsinki, the US president delivered a rare admission of error Tuesday, saying he misspoke by one word when he said he saw no reason to believe Russian Federation had interfered in the 2016 USA election.

But Trump has frequently questioned the Intelligence Community's assessment, including on Monday, in which he sided with Putin over U.S. intelligence on 2016 election interference.

Pressed on whether Trump warned Putin against interference, Sanders said, "The president has made clear to Vladimir Putin that he should stay out of USA elections".

One such opportunity is what Trump termed an "incredible offer" from Putin to allow the US access to Russians accused of election hacking and other interference.

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

At a joint news conference with Trump in Helsinki, Putin referred to a treaty with the United States governing legal assistance each country can provide the other in criminal cases, which, according to its text, would not necessarily require that Russians be allowed to directly pose questions on American soil and vice versa. "I think we've all been foolish".

Trump faced immediate backlash after his press conference with Putin from lawmakers on both sides of the aisle, world leaders, the media and other prominent political figures.

When asked whether there were concerns about the president's credibility given Trump's reversal of his remarks about Russian Federation on Tuesday, Sanders was quick to note she wasn't clarifying anything on Wednesday.

"Absolutely, no doubt", Rep. Pete King of NY said of the GOP report, saying he stands by it based on the intelligence he's seen and because he says he doesn't believe Putin. "It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome!" the president wrote.

When asked what he said to Mr Putin about the issue that has dogged US-Russia ties and become a headache for the US leader, Mr Trump said he was "very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling, we can't have any of that".

"And there's been no president ever as tough as I have been on Russia", Trump told reporters before a cabinet meeting at the White House.

In tweets this week, Browder denied Putin's claim that he donated to Hillary Clinton's campaign in 2016. Then on Tuesday, Trump backpedaled and said he misspoke. Chris Van Hollen of Maryland to slap Russian Federation or other countries with sanctions if they're caught purchasing election ads, using social media to spread false information or disrupting election infrastructure. "Lots of other people out there".

President Donald Trump, right, talks with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo. "I think we did extremely well". I have tremendous faith in Dan Coats, and if he says that, I would accept that.

And Republican Senator Rob Portman said he was glad the President had clarified his comments.

The Justice Department has not commented on Trump's recent remarks. But I'm telling you today, I trust USA intelligence.
