Trump Attempts To Calm Fears: 'I Gave Up NOTHING' To Putin

But public reaction nationally appears more muted than in Washington, where Trump faced withering bipartisan criticism for appearing to side with Putin over United States intelligence agencies at a Monday news conference held in Helsinki. "I have President Putin; he just said it's not Russian Federation", the president continued, only moments after Putin conceded that he had wanted Trump to win the election because of his promises of warmer relations with Moscow. To simultaneously accept President Putin's denial of Russia's illegal intervention-to treat this as an issue on which we will simply have to agree to disagree-represents a major capitulation on the part of the United States.

"I think he should've been stronger, standing up for the fact that Putin has interfered in the past, is still doing it in the future".

Monday's firestorm erupted when Trump, standing side-by-side with Putin in Helsinki, refused to say he believed that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election, or to publicly condemn it. Podesta's emails, they hacked into the DNC, it could be us next.

Particular interest has focused on the conversation in the wake of Trump's ill-received press conference in Finland, when he suggested that he believed Putin's denial of Russian interference in the 2016 election rather than the findings of US intelligence agencies. Released online Saturday under the Freedom of Information Act, the documents note the political ties to Steele's work but said it still believed some of his report to be "credible".

The president's handling of the Putin meeting had some in the media describing last week as the worst week of his presidency, and former CIA Director John Brennan went as far to describe Trump's behavior as "treasonous".

Trump had begun his day Monday on Twitter, blaming American "foolishness and stupidity" for years of escalating tension with Russian Federation, as well as the "Rigged Witch Hunt", in reference to Mueller's investigation.

Trump had just days earlier confirmed his acceptance US intelligence conclusions about Russian interference.

"These numbers don't budge", Bill McInturff, one of the pollsters who worked on this survey, told NBC News. "I know it's hard", Graham said.

"I can tell you this, Brett, the president has access to every bit of evidence", Gowdy explained.

Republicans continue to give President Donald Trump huge approval ratings from within their ranks, even after his controversial summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"The possibility of a civil war in Nicaragua is real", Rubio said.
