Trump Reverses Summit Remarks, Saying Russia Meddled in Election

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

Kinzinger said Trump needed to speak to the nation about what happened - in person and not on Twitter. The topic is tax policy, but people will be looking to see if he says more on Russian Federation. Trump tweeted. In all, Trump's remarks amounted to an unprecedented embrace of a man who for years has been isolated by the USA and Western allies for actions in Ukraine, Syria and beyond. "In a key sentence in my remarks I said the word "would" instead of 'wouldn't'".

On Tuesday, Trump said he misspoke and instead meant to say he didn't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation.

"Sort of a double negative", he added - repeating the laborious clarification several times.

Trump also said, "I had a great meeting with NATO" last week that preceded his talks with Putin. CNN called it "The most shameful, stunning moment of the Trump presidency". "He's got to reverse course immediately". "Too bad Trump didn't have the guts to say that yesterday while with his authoritarian friend, Vladimir Putin".

Former House speaker and longtime Trump ally Newt Gingrich put it yet more bluntly.

Earlier Tuesday, House Republicans have used a party-line vote to block a Democratic measure aimed at condemning President Donald Trump's stunning comments in Helsinki, Finland, about Russian Federation.

Even hosts on the Trump-preferred Fox News have been critical of his handling of the summit.

"Whatever happened to all that?" he said, before giving a large sigh. (Trump's then-economic adviser Gary Cohn offered a rare rebuke of his boss, saying "citizens standing up for equality and freedom can never be equated with white supremacists, neo-Nazis, and the KKK.") And earlier this year, at a private meeting at the White House, Trump offered shifting explanations on whether he used a vulgarity to describe some African nations.

Israel says its use of live fire is necessary to defend its borders and stop infiltrations. At least eight large fires burned in southern Israel near the border with Gaza on Monday.

One lawmaker to defend Trump was Sen.

"I think the president did a good thing by meeting with Putin and I think it's a mistake for people to try to turn this into a partisan escapade", the Kentucky Republican said on CBS. But President Trump made clear he feels that any acknowledgement of Russia's election involvement would undermine the legitimacy of his election.

But the meeting is officially slated as a discussion on "tax reform 2.0", as Mr. Trump pushes another GOP attempt to further lower tax burdens.

"We stand by our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and all those countries who are facing Russian aggression", Ryan said.

'On the world's stage, in front of the entire globe, the President of the United States essentially capitulated and seems intimidated by Vladimir Putin.

But on Tuesday, Trump claimed that he misspoke, explaining that he meant to say that he saw no reason why it would not be Russian Federation.

He also promised that "we're doing everything in our power to prevent Russian interference in 2018" elections.

"Let me be really clear".
