USA voters: what's your reaction to Trump and Putin's meeting?

Share

The Western world waited with bated breath on Monday for President Donald Trump to castigate Vladimir Putin and demand answers from the Russian president.

"I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", he said.

Trump has denied collusion and casts Mueller's probe as a witchhunt that detracts from his election victory.

On Tuesday, government officials in Moscow said he meant $400,000, not $400 million.

"My people came to me, [Director of National Intelligence] Dan Coats came to me and some others, they said they think it's Russian Federation".

"The meeting between President Putin and myself was a great success, except in the Fake News Media!"

"These are people that, in my opinion, are truly the bad people and they are being exposed for what they are and it's a shame that it has to happen, but it's really hurt our country", Trump said.

At a rambling news conference after one-on-one talks, Trump said not a single critical word about Russian Federation on any of the issues that have brought relations between the Washington and Moscow to a post-Cold War low, from Ukraine to Syria.

THE FACTS: Was this a misunderstanding set off by his saying "would" instead of "wouldn't"?

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) joined the chorus of lawmakers pushing back on Trump's performance in Helsinki but was careful not to openly criticize the president.

But they marked a stunning reversal for the President, who less than 24 hours earlier had refused to back the findings of the intelligence community while standing next to Putin at a joint press conference.

Trump has been a almost solitary figure in his administration in holding onto doubts about whether Russians tried to sway the election.

Donald Trump has offered an "extraordinary show of trust", after siding with Russian president Vladimir Putin's assertion that Moscow did not interfere in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. US intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia did indeed wage a cyber-attack against the election, and on Friday, as the Inquisitr reported, Russia investigation Special Counsel Robert Mueller issued a detailed indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence officers for carrying out that cyber-attack. According to Bolton, "Both President Trump and President Putin think they may be able to find constructive solutions". Unlike his rhetoric, Trump's Russian Federation policy has actually been a dramatic improvement over that of his predecessor. "I am nervous that the longer this goes on that it's harder to fix and that the allies will take different roads and will decide that we are not dependable".

The indictments were announced by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein on Friday, and claim Russians stole then released Democrat campaign documents. Putin's initial figure suggested a huge chunk of her money came from a small cabal of financiers.

"I think he's so unclear and is only interested in superlatives", said Albright, who worked on the National Security Council and as the US ambassador to the United Nations before becoming secretary of state.

The Democratic Party's biggest financiers are reportedly pushing Warner, who is known on Capitol Hill as a moderate, to run for president in 2020.

Many analysts have criticised Trump's meeting with Russia's head, as European allies have recently clashed with Moscow on a number of issues. "I think that the United States has been foolish". They have paid $33 Billion more and will pay hundreds of Billions of Dollars more in the future, only because of me.

In a tweet, he wrote: "Our relationship with Russian Federation has NEVER been worse thanks to many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity and now, the Rigged Witch Hunt!"

THE FACTS: No, increased military spending by North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members is not "only because" of him. President Barack Obama and Russian president Dmitry Medvedev were caught in an unscripted, open-mike moment.
