White House: Trump Still Believes Russia Is Targeting Elections

19 Juillet, 2018, 13:15 | Auteur: Anatole Charbonneau

Trump was saying that he had "full faith" in the U.S. intelligence agencies in the aftermath of his Helsinki news conference when the lights in the White House Cabinet Room dimmed and briefly went out, leaving the room mostly in darkness.

Except Trump then answered the question, insisting no president has been as tough on Russian Federation.

White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders is scheduled to hold a White House news briefing at 2 p.m. EDT Wednesday.

During the press briefing, Sanders said Trump was saying "no" to taking more questions, not answering Vega.

"I realize there is a need for some clarification", he said.

Jackson continued by pointing out that this was the second time in three days that Trump or the White House has reversed what the president has said.

"No, you don't believe that to be the case?" the reporter asked over the din.

Sanders denied that was what the White House was doing.

At the meeting in Helsinki on Monday, Trump had effusively praised the Russian president and cast doubt on the intelligence community's finding that the Russians had interfered in the 2016 election.

"I think by stating the fact that Russian Federation interfered with our election, that's a pretty bold call-out of another world leader", Sanders said.
