Sanders says Trump thinks Russian Federation would target U.S.

"I can only say that I do have confidence in our intelligence agencies as now constituted".

Sanders said "there was some conversation about" Putin's proposed exchange during Trump's summit with the Russian leader in Helsinki on Monday, where the two leaders spent about two hours together accompanied only by translators.

Asked later in an interview with CBS News whether he held Putin personally responsible for meddling in the 2016 election, Trump said he did.

On Capitol Hill, top Republican leaders said they were open to slapping fresh sanctions on Russian Federation, but they showed no sign of acting any time soon.

Even many Republicans are lashing out at Trump after his weird performance at his meeting with Vladimir Putin.

The Trump administration, she said, is trying a new approach on its relationship with Russian Federation.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Trump was trying to "squirm away" from his comments alongside Putin.

Democrats and some members of Trump's own Republican party have criticized him for failing to hold Putin accountable and for accepting his denial at face value. As a result, in a Wednesday news briefing, Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to fix Trump's slip-up.

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 US election. "We're taking steps, we're making bold reforms to try to fix this and make sure it never happens again because we take it seriously and because we recognise that our election systems are incredibly important and is certainly a cornerstone of our democracy", the presidential advisor said.

The Trump administration has faced a rocky road since the president's summit last month with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un in advancing Trump's goal of complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. Didn't get very much play relatively speaking.

The NBA world has been waiting to see where Kawhi Leonard will end up, and it appears we may have our answer. Per Wojnarowski and Shelburne, "San Antonio has been determined in demanding a sizeable return on Leonard".

"It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome!" the president wrote on Twitter, borrowing a line from Sen. "But he does believe that they would target, certainly, United States elections again", Sanders said. They would rather go to war than see this.

Trump also accused past American leaders, rather than Russia's destabilizing actions in the usa and around the world, for the souring of relations between two countries.

CNN's Jim Acosta also wanted to know if Trump actually brought up Russian election interference face to face during his meeting with Putin Monday and warned the Russian president to cease it immediately.

In a follow-up tweet, Trump wrote that Russian Federation has agreed to help in delicate negotiations with North Korea.

One current United States diplomat, who said he was "at a f-- loss", called the development a step back in USA diplomacy, according to The Daily Beast.

"I was in the room as well, and I didn't take it the way you did", Sanders told Jackson.

Despite his reluctantly stated acceptance of USA intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation had meddled in the US 2016 presidential campaign, Trump said the meddler "could be other people also", since "there's a lot of people out there".

At the outset of the gathering, Trump upbraided allies for not living up to an agreement on how much they should pay for defense.

"The president also sees this as an opportunity, as he said many times, to be able to work with Russian Federation".
