  • President Donald Trump center speak during a meeting with members of his cabinet in the Cabinet Room of the White House in Washington Wednesday

Trump, facing uproar over his failure to confront Putin over Russia's 2016 US election meddling, adopted his usual defiant posture two days after their Helsinki summit and called his critics deranged.

"I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said in Helsinki.

As he said it, the lights in the White House flickered as if Putin was in the next room trying to shut him down.

Trump faced withering criticism earlier this week after he seemed to side with Putin over the USA intelligence community over Russian interference in the 2016 election.

"To me, it's a threat that we need to take extremely seriously", said Wray who was picked by Trump himself after he fired the then FBI Director James Comey a year ago. "So certainly as the leader of a country you would have to hold him responsible, yes", Trump told CBS News in an interview.

"Well, I would, because he's in charge of the country. And in that meeting, we discussed many, many things that were very, very positive for both countries", he said. But in return, Putin said he would expect the U.S. to allow Russian investigators to question what he called fugitives on American soil.

"Also, the rest of us less intelligent people in America thought your performance in Helsinki was disgraceful", Lieu said.

Sanders explanation of Trump's "No" was the second time since Monday's summit that Trump and the White House have blamed a misstatement or misunderstanding for the furore over Russian Federation. Earlier in the day, when asked by ABC News" Cecilia Vega if Russian Federation is still targeting the U.S., President Trump replied: "Thank you very much, no." "No?

Democrats are happy to say President Donald Trump undermined American democracy.

The remarks again appeared to contradict his top advisers on the threat posed by Russian Federation, just one day after he said he accepted the conclusion of USA intelligence officials on Moscow's interference in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Putin has denied the allegations. He's been doing a very good job.

John McCain (who has never been a fan of Trump), said that, "No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant".

In a series of early morning Twitter posts, the Republican president said the summit would eventually produce "big results" and accused his critics of "Trump Derangement Syndrome". "The Helsinki meeting was an opportunity to see where the relationship could go in the future".

The timing of the exchange was conspicuous: It occurred five days after a less-than-collegial moment between reporters at a presidential news conference.

U.S. Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats told a congressional committee in February he already had seen evidence Russian Federation was targeting November's elections when Republican control of the House of Representatives and Senate is at stake.

Trump said that he considered Russian President Vladimir Putin to be personally accountable for Moscow's meddling in the 2016 US elections. Then on Tuesday, Trump backpedaled and said he misspoke.

"This was back in 1980, and I thought back to a previous election where I voted, and I voted for the Communist Party candidate", he said.

However, Trump's loyal mouthpiece attempted to spin Trump's comment to reporters at the news briefing: Sanders told reporters that she spoke to Trump and he claims he was "saying "no" to answering questions" instead of saying "no" to the reporter's question itself. Susan Collins of ME said of Trump's one-word response.

"Brennan's a very bad guy", Trump told Fox's Tucker Carlson this week, "and if you look at it, a lot of things happened under his watch". In addition, the two leaders have also held several telephone conversations.
