  • Trump says he 'misspoke' after Putin meeting, accepts Russian election meddling

At a press conference after their two-hour-long meeting in Helsinki, Finland, Trump, standing next to Vladimir Putin, said he did not "see any reason why" Russian Federation would be responsible for the election meddling.

Trump, who had been given numerous opportunities to publicly rebuke Putin in Helsinki, praised the Russian leader during the news conference for his "strong and powerful" denial of the conclusions of USA intelligence agencies that the Russian state meddled in the election.

After insisting that he accepts "our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", Trump added: "Could be other people also. Sadly, it is not being reported that way - the Fake News is going insane!" the president tweeted Tuesday morning.

"I have confidence in both parties", he said separately, referring to the US intelligence agencies and Putin, though the two parties have completely opposing accounts of Russia's actions in 2016.

Cornyn suggested sanctions legislation as an alternative to plans for a resolution supporting the intelligence community's findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 election.

He also noted that the current blowback from the meeting "really shows people hatred for President Trump". Lotta people out there. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said. "I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said.

'President Trump I just saw your press conference with President Putin, and it was embarrassing, ' Schwarzenegger said, addressing the president in a 45-second clip he posted to Twitter.

"Two days of infamy where an American president used moral equivalency; failed to condemn a U.S. adversary and hate groups; and betrayed U.S. values/interests", Miller said.

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.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said earlier Tuesday he wouldn't critique Trump's appearance with Putin.

As President Trump was slammed with criticism from both Democrats and Republicans alike about his Monday denial of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, he sought to "clarify" his remarks a day later - a move that received attention from elected officials. Other party leaders and lawmakers called it "disgraceful", "shameful", "regrettable" and "disappointing". Vladimir Putin does not share our interests. I believe Russian Federation is a state sponsor of terror and I've introduced legislation that would mandate the State Department to determine whether Russian Federation merits this designation, along with their allies Iran and Syria that are already designated.

Trump has faced an onslaught of criticism from Republicans and Democrats for meeting with Putin, whose government has been accused of trying to discredit his election rival Hillary Clinton.

Putin said he had indeed wanted Trump to win the election - a revelation that might have made more headlines if not for Trump's performance - but had taken no action to make it happen.

Speaking to reporters in the Oval Office on Tuesday, Trump said he had misspoken.

TRT World spoke with former Republican Congressman Ron Paul, who said Trump-Putin summit was a success. I will say this. All you need to know is: We ran a brilliant campaign, and that's why I'm president.
