Putin summit failed to address global problems

Donald Trump has the perfect excuse to insist he did not kowtow to Putin Bad grammar

Trump sought on Tuesday to calm the storm over what critics said was his failure to hold Putin accountable for what U.S intelligence agencies said was meddling in the 2016 USA election, saying he misspoke in the joint news conference in Helsinki.

Kelly probably figured, with some reason, that a rare display of public pressure from Ryan and McConnell would nudge Trump towards walking his comments back - which he did with this afternoon's Costanza-esque "I said "would" when I meant to say "wouldn't" spin.

After his freakish summit meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin, it wasn't just US media wondering if Trump was compromised by Russia; Putin's own official TV network said the same thing.

In his attempt to walk back his Helsinki remarks, Trump said he accepts the consensus of American intelligence agencies that Russian Federation interfered in the election.

The interpreter, Marina Gross, was the only other American present in the private meeting between Trump and Putin, who was also joined by an interpreter. A lot of people out there.

This is a reversal from his press conference Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin, where he declared that he believed Putin over Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats.

Trump said he reviewed the transcript and clips from the news conference and said he made a mistake when he answered a reporter who asked the USA president if he would publicly denounce the election meddling to Putin.

The Democratic mayor and frequent Trump critic doesn't think the Republican president did so hot.

Last week, Trump met with fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members, pushing them to increase their spending on defence.

When finally asked what he thought of Trump's behavior with Putin, Emanuel spent more than 3½ minutes giving his thoughts.

England icon slams third place play-off
Sensibly, Southgate says he will wait to see how well his players recover from another gruelling contest before picking a side. England take on Belgium for the third place playoff on Saturday, so don't pack away your England shirts just yet.

With this tension, Tchantouridze says Americans should not be too anxious but he says do keep in mind that most of Russia's intercontinental ballistic missiles target the Northeast, as they see it as a seat of power for the country. He just said it's not Russian Federation. I was clumsy in how I said it yesterday, because I didn't want to insult him.

Trump tweeted Tuesday night.

"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.

FYI, what Trump said in Helsinki: "I have great confidence in my intelligence people".

CNN's Anderson Cooper asked Hurd, who is a former CIA officer and member of the House Intelligence Committee, if he trusted Trump's ability to speak on behalf of U.S. interests.

Mr Trump's meeting with Mr Putin in Helsinki was his first time sharing the worldwide stage with a man he has described as an important U.S. competitor - but whom he has also praised a strong, effective leader.

"I consider them (the talks) very successful and useful", Putin said, praising the "frank and business-like atmosphere" of the summit. It seems there are few, if any, who deemed the summit a good idea despite the apocalyptic issues that need to be addressed, i.e., the civil war in Syria, the disastrous nuclear situation in North Korea, and of course, Iran.

"We had direct, open, deeply productive dialogue", Trump said. Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating any potential collusion between Trump campaign associates and the Kremlin. Putin denies any Russian interference in the vote.

Mr. Trump said he misspoke at a joint press conference Monday with Mr. Putin when he said he "didn't know why it would be" Russian Federation that hacked the election.
