Journalist bravely confronts Donald Trump and Vladimir Putin

Bennie Garza | 18 July, 2018, 16:41

Donald Trump was criticised by Americans on both the right and left when he appeared to side with Vladimir Putin, and not his own intelligence agency, over accusations Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 United States election. A Republican aide said the panel originally asked to meet him following Trump's meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un but added Russian Federation to the agenda following the president's tumultuous meeting with Putin.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY said Americans had "never seen a president of the United States support an American adversary the way" Trump did at the conference. Trump, who repeatedly praised and deferred to Putin, was criticised by foreign policy and national security veterans as weak, an insult that is particularly galling to him.

"Donald Trump's press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes & misdemeanors.' It was nothing short of treasonous".

Mr Trump's meeting with Mr Putin in Helsinki was his first time sharing the worldwide stage with a man he has described as an important U.S. competitor - but whom he has also praised a strong, effective leader. "WE got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match" promising "big results will come!"

"The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation, ' sort of a double negative".

Trump, reading from a script, said he believed the assessment of the nation's intelligence agencies that Russian Federation had interfered in the campaign.

U.S. Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) waits for a Banking Committee hearing to begin on Capitol Hill as fallout continued over U.S. President Donald Trump's Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin, in Washington, U.S., July 17, 2018.

President Trump said he accepted his intelligence services' assessment that Russian Federation had interfered.

Last week, Trump met with fellow North Atlantic Treaty Organisation members, pushing them to increase their spending on defence.

"I think what we ought to focus on is additional sanctions rather than just some messaging exercise", the Texas Republican said.

Trump had said there were "two thoughts" on the matter, and "I have confidence in both parties".

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein went to Trump last week and offered to hold off announcing the charges until after he had met with Putin in Helsinki on Monday, Bloomberg reports.

Trump then added that "it could be other people also, there's a lot of people out there".

Senate Foreign Relations member Cory Gardner in April sponsored a bipartisan bill, now awaiting committee consideration, that would require the State Department to determine whether Russian Federation meets the standard for being characterized as a state sponsor of terrorism.

What he had said as he stood next to Putin Monday, in response to a question about whether he believed the usa intelligence community or Putin was, "My people came to me - Dan Coats came to me and some others - they said they think it's Russian Federation. You have the opportunity, two of the world's superpowers, and instead the question is, 'Gee, do you have anything on the president?' That's not the way the press ought to conduct itself".

"Every American should be", Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer, a New York Democrat, said.
