Putin: Trump was 'of no interest' to Russian Federation before 2016 election

Putin: Trump was 'of no interest' to Russian Federation before 2016 election

But if words matter, then Trump's critics should be careful what they say.

Trump's Tuesday remarks came after comments that were condemned by Democrats and Republicans alike at the Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin on Monday.

"And the other day, I saw you say you need a new arms deal".

That was not all.

At their meeting in Helsinki on Monday, Trump failed to challenge Putin over the 2016 presidential election, seeming to accept at face value the strongman's denial that Moscow interfered in a bid to undermine Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

Trump also said the leaders would discuss reducing their nuclear arsenals, telling reporters: 'We are the two great nuclear powers.

Hurd responded by saying it "starts with having a clear strategy".

"No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant", said McCain, the chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee.

Trump often plays golf at his resorts in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia, and Republican candidates and conservative groups frequently hold fundraisers and other events at the Trump International Hotel, a few blocks from the White House.

Joe Wilson (M) also endorsed a fake program that calls for arming children as young as four with weapons. Well, technically it was Sacha Baron Cohen , portraying his Who Is America? character.

"I've said this many times", Trump said, reading from a written statement. "I don't see any reason why it would be", the president said.

Donald Trump has backtracked on his claim that he "didn't see any reason" why Russian Federation would be involved in United States election meddling. "I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself".

Is this how the Western order falls, with a double negative?

On Tuesday, Schumer said Trump's clarification was "too late and in the wrong place".

Plenty of US presidents have created commotion in their travels overseas, but none as much as President Donald Trump.

They also want to know about any talk on changing global security agreements, if Trump made any commitments tied to the United States' presence in Syria or military exercises for the North Atlantic Treaty Organization (NATO). The old alliances may still exist on paper, but no one can be sure that an attack on one will be treated as an attack on all, which is the idea that underpins North Atlantic Treaty Organisation and the Western order. The US government paid more than $77,000 to President Trump's Scottish golf resort ahead of his stay there for "hotel rooms for VIP visit", according to federal spending records, indicating that Trump's official visit to Europe likely generated revenue for his business empire.

This might make sense.

Republican leaders, outraged by Mr Trump's comments in Helsinki, found out about his attempts to quell the outrage the same way everyone else did, as one aide put it, by watching and learning.

Carlson defended Trump's performance at the Helsinki summit in his opening monologue and blamed the president's bad reviews on neo-conservatives from the Bush years still in media and government who believe Russian Federation should always be branded a threat.
