What Dori would have said Tuesday if he were President Trump

What Dori would have said Tuesday if he were President Trump

It comes amid a flurry of criticism over his recent comments about Russian Federation. He added that he thinks he's been tougher on Russian Federation and its president, Vladimir Putin, than any other USA president. "President Trump undercut our intelligence, elevated a brutal dictator who's taking advantage of the United States".

You know what? I believe our intelligence agencies.

He appeared to respond again: "No". Konstantin Kosachev, head of the upper house of parliament's foreign affairs committee, said Thursday the idea sets a risky precedent that threats the "the whole idea of diplomacy", according to Russian news agencies.

"It's imperative we get to the bottom of what is going on so we can be prepared to protect ourselves in advance of the 2018 elections", Graham said. And so if Putin really wants to get hold of me to do all this questioning that he's talking about, he's actually approached the wrong head of state.

The president's response, as it was initially understood by the media, including CBS News, seemed to contradict Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats' statement released shortly after the president's summit in Helsinki, which said the intelligence community has "been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

The former Australian prime minister said the U.S. president had clearly made a mistake when he said he believed Russian President Vladimir Putin over his own intelligence agencies.

US intelligence officials have said Russian election interference efforts are continuing and now target the upcoming congressional elections in November.

He told a congressional committee in February he had already seen evidence that Russian Federation was targeting the upcoming mid-term elections in November. "Just like I consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in this country", he said.

According to Nauert, the proposals included establishing a high-level working group with business leaders from both countries and an "expert council" that would include political scientists from the USA and Russian Federation, current and former diplomats as well as former military officials - similar to an initiative between the United States and Soviet Union years ago.

In the CBS interview, Trump asserted he was leading a hard-line policy on Russian Federation.


The White House has been under siege since Monday dealing with the fallout from lawmakers and the media stories that resulted from Monday's meeting in Helsinki.

In the survey, 42 percent of all registered voters approved of his job performance, which is consistent with averages thus far.

Some 71 percent of Republicans polled approved of his response to Russian Federation, while only 14% of Democrats were in favour.

"Well, I would [consider him personally responsible], because he's in charge of the country", Trump told Glor.

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California labeled the discussion "BATS-T CRAZY" and demanded Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to "put a stop to this notion immediately".

Senators Jeff Flake and Chris Coons, an Arizona Republican and a Delaware Democrat, are reportedly working on a nonbinding resolution to endorse the intelligence committee's findings. He just said it's not Russian Federation.

When asked if she was reversing what the president had said, she answered: "I'm interpreting it, not reversing it". Instead, we must settle for Schwarzenegger verbally abusing Trump.

"And I think President Putin knows that better than anybody", Trump said. Russian officials have said they want to interview Kremlin critics Bill Browder and former U.S. Ambassador to Russia Michael McFaul. The next day, Mr Trump claimed he had misspoke, and had meant to say he did not see any reason why Russian wouldn'tbe responsible for interfering in the 2016 vote.

A few hours earlier, Trump had answered "no" when asked if the longtime USA foe was still targeting American elections.

After Sanders' comments, McFaul wrote on Twitter, "I hope the White House corrects the record and denounces in categorical terms this ridiculous request from Putin". Trump later sought to walk back his stance, saying he misspoke using a double negative.
