Mr Trump has risked the ire of Republicans by appearing to contradict his own intelligence services

Trump said Tuesday he misspoke a day earlier when he seemed to side with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the conclusion by the U.S. intelligence committees that Russia had meddled in the 2016 USA presidential election.

President Donald Trump continues to deny Russian interference in the us election, doing so again in a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin Monday.

Mr Putin issued a categorical denial to claims that the Kremlin was involved in interfering in the United States presidential election of 2016, which Mr Trump won.

Independent Sen. Angus King serves on the Senate Intelligence Committee and says President Trump's comments were astounding, and they ignored the findings of his own intelligence agencies. I have President Putin he just said it's not Russian Federation. I have President Putin.

Instead, the two can be heard laughing as they decide to charge Webb with reckless driving and arrest her anyway. Prosecutors have dismissed the case against Webb, according to NBC affiliate WXIA-TV in Atlanta .

When questioned about Russia specifically, a majority of registered voters (55 percent) said they disapproved of Trump's handling of Russian relations, while only 37 percent approved of the same.

"Today was a sad and unprecedented day in history - an American president stood with Russian Federation over our own country", she said in a statement.

Trump also attacked special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, calling it "a disaster for our country". However, he also says there are a lot of issues that the two men likely discussed and it's hard to tell what could come next. "I think we need to go a little further than that".

The president added that Putin told him that "he wants to be very helpful with North Korea".

Pacquiao knocks down Matthysse to claim welterweight crown
Filipino boxing analysts said Pacquiao was back in his old form and showed his skill in boxing. Pacquiao now improves to 60-7-2 win-loss-draw record with 39 knockouts.

Trump came under great pressure to raise the alleged meddling with Putin, who has on numerous occasions denied any wrongdoing.

Former House Speaker Newt Gingrich, a strong Trump supporter, called the president's remarks "the worst mistake of his presidency".

Sullivan's criticism came a day after he appeared on Sunday talk show Meet the Press, where he said he felt the president's meeting with U.S. North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO) allies was a success overall, and that the Russian Federation meeting should proceed. Russian Federation "remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals", Ryan said. It is a fact that Russian entities hacked US presidential campaign accounts, launched cyberattacks against at least 21 states, attacked USA voting system software companies, and engaged in social media misinformation campaigns during the 2016 campaign.

Expect (nothing) much: To prevent any backlash against a possible failure of the summit, Trump has already shielded Putin and himself by saying that he doesn't expect much from the meeting, while hoping for an "extraordinary relationship".
