Trump's Small Reversal Doesn't Change Much About His Putin Presser

‘You Stood There Like a Little Wet Noodle’: Schwarzenegger Slams Trump After Putin News Conference

US President Donald Trump, grappling with a torrent of criticism over his performance at a Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, said on Tuesday he misspoke at their joint news conference and meant to say he saw no reason why it was not Russia that interfered in the 2016 US election.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY said Americans had "never seen a president of the United States support an American adversary the way" Trump did at the conference.

"I've seen Russian intelligence manipulate many people in my career, and I never thought the United States president would be one of them", Hurd told Jake Tapper.

During Monday's press conference with Putin, he refused to condemn Russia's interference, saying that he accepted the Russian president's denial and took Putin's word over the conclusion of US intelligence agencies, which he has continually attacked during his presidency.

However, he quickly added: "It could be other people". There are a lot of people out there.

He said he was willing to consider additional sanctions on Russian Federation and that Congress would make sure they were not able to "get away with (election meddling) again".

"Let me be really clear", Ryan said as a reporter asked the first of several consecutive questions about Russian Federation during a GOP leadership press conference Tuesday. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be". "I don't see any reason why it would be", he said in a news conference after the summit.

During Monday's news conference, Trump said, "I don't see any reason why it would be" Russian Federation who interfered in the election.

"I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that meddling took place", Trump said adding that others could have also been involved. "There was nobody to collude with".

"There was no collusion at all".

Republicans are unhappy with President Trump's comments at his press conference with Putin.

"Sadly, it is not being reported that way - the Fake News is going insane!" he proclaimed.

It was the President himself who determined in a meeting that he wanted to say he had misspoken, according to officials familiar with the matter, who said Trump led the crafting of the clarification that unfolded Tuesday afternoon.

Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, said he was not buying Trump's new version of events.

"I'm not here to critique anyone else", he insisted, while doing just that with every word.

"I look for the president to maybe illuminate a little further the progress that was made in the closed-door session", Gaetz said, referring to a two-hour meeting earlier Monday between Trump and Putin, at which only their translators were present.

In a hastily called White House gathering of reporters, Trump said he has full faith in the USA intelligence agencies and their assertion that Russian Federation tampered with the 2016 election.

President Trump still maintained that his meetings with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies went well and his summit with Putin "even better".
