President Trump Delays Putin Visit Until 2019 Due to Mueller Probe

President Trump Delays Putin Visit Until 2019 Due to Mueller Probe

Trump said he holds "both countries responsible" for Russia's interference in the 2016 USA presidential election because "we're all to blame".

McFaul, named ambassador by President Obama, is one of 11 Americans now on a list of those Putin wants Russian authorities to be able to question in exchange for allowing the US government to question the Russians indicted just before the Helsinki summit.

After days of similar walk-backs, Sanders later released a statement saying that the proposal was "made in sincerity" by Putin but Mr. Trump now "disagrees with it".

Two-thirds of Americans - 69 percent - also think Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 USA presidential election.

In part, the support for Trump among his base may be driven by a steady stream of media articles interviewing Trump supporters who say that they continue to support Trump no matter what, according to an analysis by author Noah Berlatsky, writing for The Huffington Post this week.

American voters gave Trump a 38 percent job approval rating in this poll, compared to 42 percent approval rating in a June 20 survey after the summit with North Korean leader Kim Jong-un.

More than anything, however, it seems an attempt by Trump to already cast blame elsewhere if Democrats win in a country that has grown disgusted by his unceasing blunders, scandals, and horrific policies.

"We will not be doing anything additional" in Syria, with regards to Russia's military presence in the country, Mr. Mattis said in a joint press conference with Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, Australian Minister of Foreign Affairs Julie Bishop and Australian Defense Minister Marise Payne. The rest have no opinion.

Trump explained that he mixed up "would" and 'wouldn't when speaking about Russia's involvement.

Trump faced intense criticism from Democrats and even some Republicans after appearing to suggest that he believed Putin's denial that Russian election meddling took place over the information provided by his own intelligence agencies. Just 8 percent of Americans said the president is too tough on Russian Federation, and that idea received weak support, regardless of where the respondent fell on the political spectrum.

Sixty-nine percent say they believe there was Russian interference in the 2016 election, compared to 24% who said there wasn't. But a smaller 31 percent disapprove, with 18 percent offering no opinion. Trump has since clarified his remarks to side with the intelligence community.

Mr Trump's handling of North Atlantic Treaty Organisation relations also was judged.

Trump has continued speaking about Russian Federation since his meeting with Putin. Additionally, the poll showed 58% don't approve of how Trump's dealing with immigration while just 31% approved. But white men, who last month approved by a margin of 12 percentage points, are now divided, with 49 percent approving and 47 percent disapproving.

Trump faced a bipartisan tidal wave of criticism after a news conference with Putin in Helsinki where he gave credence to Putin's denials of Russian interference while seeming to question the conclusions of USA intelligence agencies.

Still, Trump's tweet Tuesday is the US president's firmest confirmation to date of ongoing Russian attempts to interfere in the USA democratic process.

Last week, Trump told reporters he mistakenly said he didn't see a reason why it "would be" Russian Federation who meddled in the 2016 elections instead of saying "wouldn't". In contrast, most Republicans - 58 percent - appear hopeful that Russian Federation will not interfere in US elections this fall. While that approval rate is high compared to most other demographic groups, it's a significant drop from just last month, when the same group of voters approved of Trump's performance 57-36 percent. Those without college degrees are almost three times as likely to say they have no opinion of Trump's performance.

"You can't keep your assets in roubles because the rouble is linked to the dollar and if there will be more sanctions the rouble will suffer", said one businessman, asking not to be named because he didn't want to be linked with sanctions risk. Men were slightly less disapproving of the president's handling of the summit than women, but the gap was not statistically significant. Retweeting Kapur, Trump added three little American flags in his caption. But younger and older Americans tended to offer similar assessments to other questions.

Democrats had a sampling size advantage among the poll's respondents. There is a margin of error of plus/minus 3.3 points.
