  • As White House Declares Summit a Success, Sanders Rips Trump-Putin Presser as 'Embarrassing Spectacle'

"It's insane and should be called insane and outrageous, not just by me, but by the U.S. government", McFaul said.

Asked by reporters whether Russian Federation was still targeting the United States, Trump shook his head and said, "No".

Trump has been facing bipartisan criticism over his apparent acceptance at the Helsinki summit of Russian leader Vladimir Putin's denial of election meddling.

With that, Trump declared the contretemps over, insisting, "I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself".

"In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word "would" instead of 'wouldn't", he said.

"That alliance transcends the occupants of the highest office in the two countries", he said.

Two days earlier, Coats was more forceful in his warnings that Russian Federation and other countries would continue their attempts to breach U.S. systems.

At a news conference with Vladimir Putin, Mr Trump said he "didn't see any reason why it would be" Russian Federation that interfered in USA elections.

"It could be other people also - there's a lot of people out there", he said.

"Given the unfriendliness of the press toward the president, why should we focus on a press conference?"

"They continue their efforts to undermine our democracy", Coats said.

"We certainly believe that we are taking steps to make sure they can't do it again", Sanders said.

House Speaker Paul Ryan, who called Russia's government "menacing", said he would consider additional sanctions on Russian Federation and reiterated his support for USA intelligence findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

IN lawmakers question Trump approach to Russia — IN Focus
Trump raised the meddling issue during his first meeting with Putin on the sidelines of the G20 summit in Hamburg previous year . CBS released excerpts on Sunday.

Congress overwhelmingly passed a sanctions law previous year targeting Moscow for election meddling.

Even before the allegations of Russian meddling, tensions were high over Moscow's concerns about North Atlantic Treaty Organisation expansion, Russian annexation of the Crimea peninsula from Ukraine in 2014 and its military backing of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad in the Syrian civil war.

Mr Trump sparked a huge backlash from U.S. politicians when he appeared to suggest that he trusted Mr Putin's opinion above his own country's intelligence agencies.

"We're trying to figure out what would be an appropriate way to push back", Corker told reporters.

Trump said he had been "very strong on the fact that we can't have meddling, we can't have any of that".

The president said, "Thank you very much, no", shaking his head.

When asked whether Trump's initial siding with Putin raised any red flags, John expressed his confidence in the president.

The Russian list includes Browder, the Ziff brothers and former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul, as well as an ex-MI6 agent, Christopher Steele, who compiled an explosive dossier alleging connections between Russia and the Trump campaign and warning that the Kremlin had compromising information on the president.

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, investigating Russia's role in the 2016 election, is looking into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation, an allegation the president denies.

At Wednesday's meeting, Mr. Trump also previewed a "big" announcement on the administration's workforce training initiatives, an agenda item his eldest daughter and White House adviser Ivanka Trump has been working closely on.

Not all Republicans were angry with Trump's conduct in Helsinki. Sanders repeated that Trump was not answering the question posed in the Cabinet meeting earlier, and said Vega didn't understand his response because she asked a follow-up question.

Democrats say the woman who translated for Trump - and the notes she likely took - could provide critical information about the meeting.

Trump referred to the European Union as "a foe" on trade matters in an interview with CBS News that aired Sunday.
