Trump says 'I gave up nothing' during Putin meeting

McCain who is battling brain cancer reacted to Trump's Helsinki performance saying it was, "One of the most disgraceful performances by an American President in memory". I don't care what they talked about, I care about what we do. "That is separate from the question of whether or not we should be clear-eyed about who Putin is".

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.

Trump clarified his remarks after returning to the United States, saying that after reviewing a transcript and video of his statements, he realized he had misspoken in a key sentence about Russian interference in the 2016 USA election. That addition was meant, however sincerely, to turn his assertion that he didn't "see any reason why it would be" Russian Federation that interfered into his not seeing any reason it wouldn't be Russian Federation. "Sort of a double negative".

Rep. Trey Gowdy (R-S.C.) said on Sunday that President Donald Trump's advisers should consider leaving the White House if Trump continues to publicly disparage the nation's intelligence community and cast doubt on the evidence that Russian Federation attempted to interfere in the 2016 election.

Rubio said he did not "know what to believe" about Trump's "would" versus "wouldn't" remarks, but he reiterated that he was glad Trump tried to walk back the remark. As I said, it was not a good moment, but it was what it was.

Why? The most immediate rationale is that Trump probably wants to spur skepticism about what Mueller finds just in case Mueller's team uncovers something that more directly implicates Trump or someone close to him. "You need to be the leader of that movement and you need to work with Congress to come up with new sanctions because Putin's not getting the message. you've been tougher than Obama".

He added, "I don't like the way this was handled".

House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy (R-SC) said Sunday that President Donald Trump's top advisers should consider resigning if he doesn't follow their advice on Russian Federation.

Former Trump homeland security adviser Tom Bossert described the assertion as a "cheap shot" and dismissed the significance of the arrest of a 29-year-old Russian citizen named Maria Butina who prosecutors say was working to infiltrate American political organizations. "I'm not sure his rhetoric reflects that, but his policies do". By way of comparison, in the Post-Schar School survey, 87 percent of Republicans said they approved of Trump's overall job performance as president.

Criticizing Trump is, perhaps, something Barletta will never do: Barletta makes no bones about his hope that the coalition that propelled Trump to a win of less than 1 percentage point in Pennsylvania over Democrat Hillary Clinton will deliver a victory for him in November. But the rest of his comments while standing next to Putin make clear that casting doubt on the repeated assertion from experts that Russian Federation had attempted to interfere in the election was precisely his point. "We can not let that happen again", Fitzpatrick said of Russian interference in USA elections.

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