Trump blames 'double negative' for furor over Putin meeting

What Dori would have said Tuesday if he were President Trump

"I'm calling for a hearing with the USA interpreter who was present during President Trump's meeting with Putin to uncover what they discussed privately".

"The sentence should have been: 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia.' Sort of a double negative".

"A USA president on foreign soil talking to our biggest enemy- or adversary, or competitor, I don't know how we define them these days- is essentially letting the guy get away with this", Fox Business anchor Neil Cavuto insisted.

Kilmeade addressed Trump directly with the following statement as reported by The Daily Beast. "And the media do about the money not say, and only write that I was rude", said he.

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.

The US leader also reiterated what he said was his "full faith and support for America´s great intelligence agencies". "Lots of other people out there".

His backtracking failed to quell the controversy.

"This has to be recognized for what it is, which is simply an effort to clean up the mess he made yesterday, which is beyond the capacity of any short statement to fix", said Adam Schiff, the senior Democrat on the House of Representatives Intelligence Committee. Flake said his goal is to bring the proposal to the Senate floor and have it pass with unanimous consent by this week or next.

Perhaps he should call Putin and have the summit all over again, just to clarify exactly what the president of the United States of America really meant.

On his way back aboard Air Force One, President Trump must have been watching the backlash on TV. The speaker said he stood by his Monday statement that "the president must appreciate that Russian Federation is not our ally". He said then that he "briefed President Trump about these allegations earlier this week".

Members of Congress from both parties have suggested possible legislation to toughen US sanctions against Russian Federation and enhance election security ahead of November's midterm voting. Trump added that there is no reason that makes him believe that Russian Federation interfered.

Congress overwhelmingly passed a sanctions law previous year targeting Moscow for election meddling.

Amid bipartisan condemnation of his embrace of a longtime USA enemy, Trump sought to end 27 hours of recrimination by delivering a rare admission of error Tuesday.

Even before the allegations of Russian meddling, tensions were high over Moscow's concerns about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation expansion, Russian annexation of the Crimea peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and its military backing of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war. I believe in our intel agencies, our intelligence agencies.

The warning comes in the commission's first detailed response to the USA department of commerce following Trump's threat to hit imports of European cars with tariffs.

"Yesterday, President Trump handed global leadership and stature --free of charge-- to Vladimir Putin, a man who has spent his entire life working against the interests of the United States and who brutally suppresses and murders his own citizens", said Shaheen said in a statement. Trump chose before, ultimately putting the issue into the spotlight just 72 hours before the high-stakes meeting, the people said.

"It was important for the President to know what information we've uncovered because he's got to make very important decisions for the country, so he needs to understand what evidence we have of foreign election interference", Rosenstein said. He also went after his Justice Department, calling its investigation into Russia's efforts and potential collusion with Trump's campaign a "disaster for our country".

Putin has denied allegations of election interference.

Not all Republicans were angry with Trump's conduct in Helsinki.

None of this explained why Trump, who had tweeted several times and sat for two TV interviews since the Putin news conference, waited so long to correct his remarks.
