President Trump Fires Back At ‘Insulting’ Questions Raised By NYT Article

Current and former USA officials told the Post that after a 2017 meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Hamburg, Germany, Trump took his interpreter's notes and told her not to speak of details of the meeting with other administration officials.

Trump was responding to a Washington Post report, which said he went to great lengths to hide details of his discussions with Putin. The report cited unnamed current and former US officials.

Trump surprised his aides by deciding, with just a few hours' notice, to call in to Jeanine Pirro's show on Fox News on Saturday night to push back against coverage of his presidency on multiple fronts, particularly published reports about his approach toward Russian Federation.

'I'm not keeping anything under wraps - I couldn't care less, it's so ridiculous, ' Trump fired back in a phone interview with Fox New's Jeanine Pirro on Saturday night. Many of the President's talking points were rehearsed: "A lot of the people that aren't getting their checks are letting us know, 'We don't care, you've got to solve the crisis at the border, '" he said of the 800,000 federal workers now furloughed due to the partial government.

When asked whether the Senate should subpoena a translator so they can see what Trump and Putin have discussed behind closed doors, Cruz said he would like to learn "a little more" but that it would be premature to take that action.

US officials only learned of Trump's actions when two aides sought information from the interpreter beyond a readout from then-Secretary of State Rex Tillerson, the Post said.

Coons said, "That was a concerning, even alarming report".

At the same time, & as I have often said, getting along with Russian Federation is a good thing, not a bad thing.

Millennials often use such a response to avoid unwanted conversations through text messages by pretending they have no idea who is trying to them.

"Why not release the conversation that you had with President Putin in Helsinki?" Secretary of State Mike Pompeo told CBS' "Face the Nation" that any notion the president was a threat to USA security "is absolutely ludicrous". Their only disagreement with Trump is over which faction of the ruling elite, Trump or his opponents in the Democratic Party, should direct the repression.

"My firing of James Comey was a great day for America", Trump claimed, describing the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director as "a Crooked Cop who is being totally protected by his best friend, Bob Mueller". You sit with the president of various countries.

Trump has repeatedly and vociferously denied collusion with the Russians.

The report about Trump's meetings with Putin follows a Friday report from The New York Times that the F.B.I. opened an investigation into whether or not Trump was acting on Russia's behalf after Trump fired former F.B.I. director James Comey in 2017.

On Sunday, congressional Democrats said the steps Trump took to keep his conversations secret brought forth uncomfortable questions about the relations between the two men and why the USA president echoed some of Putin's positions. "And when you get outside the Beltway, I don't find anybody concerned with this at all", Cruz said.

'Anybody could have listened to that meeting, it is open for grabs.

He added, "I have been FAR tougher on Russian Federation than Obama, Bush or Clinton. I will say this, I don't see any reason why it would be".
