Trump was roundly criticized for that news conference Monday in which he appeared to go along with Putin's claim that Russian Federation did not interfere in the 2016 election. The president's comments come after his widely criticized press conference with Putin in Helsinki, Finland, on Monday, in which Mr. Trump appeared to say he had no reason to believe Russian Federation interfered, which would contradict the findings of multiple USA intelligence agencies.
One day after President Donald Trumpclarified that he believes Russian Federation likely interfered in the 2016 presidential election, he said Wednesday he thinks the Kremlin no longer targeting the US and its elections.
Such conduct from Trump mirrors his response to the white supremacist march in Charlottesville, Virginia, and its violent aftermath in August, in which a counterprotester was murdered by a white supremacist who rammed into a crowd with his auto.
Jackson continued by saying this was the second time in three days that Trump or the White House has reversed course on what the president has said.
But the White House is still on the defensive this week when it comes to Russian Federation, and Sanders acted pretty quickly here to try to tamp down this latest controversy. But he couldn't hold onto that position for long: Just a day later he once again denounced what he called the "alt-left" counter protesters. And, then all of a sudden, he's gone haywire because they got to him, and they probably got him to say things that maybe he doesn't even mean.
"There's been no president ever as tough as I have been on Russia", Trump said. Do they have any problem? But, he added: "I think it was, what, $100,000 worth of Facebook ads?"
President Trump's assertion flies in the face of his own director of national intelligence Dan Coats. Already, some Republican pundits are condemning Trump.
Chuck Schumer, leader of the opposition Democrats in the Senate, said the President's retraction of his previous comments was a sign of weakness. Lindsey Graham (R-S.C.) said. Moscow has convicted Browder in absentia of massive tax fraud, and Putin said on Monday that some U.S. officials may have helped the oligarch take millions of dollars out of Russian Federation.
