Trump expects ‘big results’ from Helsinki summit

Trump expects ‘big results’ from Helsinki summit

"We believe that the threat still exists", she said, "which is why we are taking steps to prevent it".

Later, Ms Vega tweeted that the president had been looking directly at her when he answered.

A Reuters/Ipsos poll this week found that despite a firestorm of media criticism, Mr Trump's Finland summit had no real impact on his overall approval ratings.

Trump said he had personally warned Putin against election meddling during his meeting with the Russian president.

Trump has been consistent in some respects. "The intelligence community has been going after him for two years". "The president and his administration are working very hard to insure that Russian Federation is unable to meddle in our elections, as they have done in the past", she added, insisting she is "interpreting" Trump, not "reversing" him.

Even one of Mr Trump's most loyal Republican supporters, Newt Gingrich, said the comments were the "most serious mistake of his presidency".

Meanwhile, NATO members already anxious about Trump's commitment to the European defence alliance have a new reason to be nervous. And the scripted cleanup pertained only to the least defensible of his comments.

"The bottom line is, different people will characterize it differently", Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer told reporters this week of Trump's conduct toward Russian Federation.

"No, you don't believe that to be the case?" the reporter asked over the din. "I've asked the same question".

Trump went on to say that Montenegro, a small Balkan country on the Adriatic Sea, could somehow be the instigator of conflict, as opposed to, say, a country like Russian Federation.

"The president was flat out wrong", Michael Morell, former deputy and acting director of the Central Intelligence Agency said about Trump's remarks after the Cabinet meeting.

What exactly did Trump say?

But the White House confirmed Wednesday that they did talk about an issue Mr. Putin later raised at their joint news conference in a way that was inappropriate as well as disturbing. "Now I understand that. but that's the way it was set up".

However, there is concern that so little is known about the substance of what Putin and Trump discussed in their private meeting with only translators present.

France's World Cup winners given heroes' welcome in Paris
The Etoile station is, for now, "On a 2 Etoiles" (We have 2 stars), to denote France's second World Cup victory. In honor of the returning heroes, several of Paris' metro stops have been temporarily renamed.

US President Donald Trump has lashed out at "haters" who condemned his meeting with Russia's president.

Later asked by a reporter at the White House if "Russia is still targeting the U.S.", Trump looked at the reporter and said, "No".

"The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation - sort of a double-negative, '" Trump said.

"No", Trump responded, then restated his claim about how tough he was on Russian Federation.

"He just said it's not Russia", Trump said.

Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats said last week that "the warning signs are there". The Americans wanted for questioning by Moscow include Michael McFaul, the former United States ambassador to Russian Federation, and American-born financier Bill Browder, who successfully lobbied the U.S. government to impose new sanctions on Moscow.

An American wanted by the Russian government has become the subject of worldwide diplomacy for the second time in a week.

While he may have been hesitant to label Russian Federation as an enemy of the United States, Donald Trump has not shown similar caution when speaking about his political enemies or his perceived adversaries in the American press.

Mr Schumer said: "We will work to protect our security".

Democratic politicians are pushing for Congress to subpoena Donald Trump's interpreter, amid a growing sense of alarm over the private summit in Helsinki between the U.S. president and Russia's Vladimir Putin.

"It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome!"

At the time, Browder was operating a successful enterprise in Russian Federation when it was seized by the Moscow government and Browder was expelled from the country.

US intelligence officials have said Russia's efforts to undermine elections are continuing and now target the November 6 congressional races. But Putin has accused Browder of perpetrating the fraud, which Browder denies. "Not doing so creates moral equivalency between a legitimacy USA indictment of Russian intelligence officers and a insane, completely fabricated story invented by Putin".
