Trump blames Putin personally for election meddling in latest reversal

Jimmy Kimmel Explains To Donald Trump “Would Vs Wouldn’t” In Video From Letters K, G, an B

He's been doing a very good job.

The remarks comes just two days after Trump was criticized for saying he did not "see any reason why" Russian Federation would be responsible for meddling in the 2016 US Presidential election.

Asked by reporters before a Cabinet meeting whether Moscow was still targeting the United States, Trump shook his head and said, "No".

"These are steps that we've taken because we see that there's a threat there", Sanders said.

Speaking later Wednesday, Sanders told reporters that Trump was saying no to answering questions, not to whether Russian Federation is still targeting the U.S. She said the administration is working to make sure Russian Federation doesn't meddle in the 2018 midterm elections.

Sanders said that she had spoken with the president about the exchange, and Mr. Trump had told her that he was "saying "no" to answering questions". On Tuesday Trump said he had misspoken and that he had complete faith in US intelligence agencies and accepted their conclusions.

"This nonsense of going up and flattering Vladimir Putin, even having a summit with him and then agreeing or saying, "it's an incredible idea" to hand over a bunch of anti-Putin activists and people who worked in the USA government to try and contain Russian Federation is just appalling", Browder said during an interview on FOX Business' "After the Bell".

'There's been no president as tough as I have been on Russian Federation... They would rather go to war than see this. "It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome!"

Trump has faced bipartisan fury at home since the summit in Finland. "I can only say that I do have confidence in our intelligence agencies as now constituted".

However, one day after his meeting and joint news conference with Putin, Trump walked back his comments, saying he "misspoke". There is no rush, but we would like to see the denuclearization of North Korea. "Big results will come!"

"I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", Trump conceded on Tuesday.

At the Helsinki news conference, Trump cast doubt on the findings of the agencies.

He also said that Moscow's offer of assistance in the investigation of Russian military intelligence officials indicted in the U.S. on espionage charges, was "not high on our list of investigative techniques". "There's a lot of people out there".

The news comes after National Intelligence Director Dan Coats warned that cyberthreats from the Kremlin are "blinking red".

During a press conference after the meeting, Trump said Putin had denied that Russian Federation interfered with the 2016 presidential election, and Trump believed him - despite the fact Trump's own intelligence agencies agree Russian Federation was behind hacking attacks and a social media propaganda campaign in Trump's favor.

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