Trump says Russian Federation to 'help with North Korea'

"Russia has agreed to help with North Korea, where relationships with us are very good and the process is moving along".
Nothing, however, had quite prepared the world for Trump's comments in Helsinki after hours of meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin, whose government, US intelligence officials have concluded, meddled in the 2016 election, hacked Democratic Party emails and disseminated them in an effort to help Trump win.
But while the United States leader expressed his "full faith and support for America's great intelligence agencies", he insisted that "Russia's actions had no impact at all on the outcome of the election".
"I have full faith and support for America's great intelligence agencies.always have", President Trump announced.
Trump also said on Tuesday that he meant to say during the press conference that he sees no reason why Russian Federation would not be responsible for election interference. And the scripted cleanup pertained only to the least defensible of his comments.
In continuation of an extraordinary series of events leading up to and after the Helsinki Summit, Trump went on to claim that he misspoke when he appeared to take the Russian leader's denial of interference at face value.
Kim thanked Trump for his "energetic and extraordinary efforts" to improve the once hostile relations between the two countries in a letter. And he did not address his other problematic statements during a weeklong Europe tour, in which he sent the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation alliance into emergency session and assailed British Prime Minister Theresa May as she was hosting him for an official visit.
Even then he made a point of adding: "It could be other people also. Lots of other people out there". "There was no collusion at all".
A moment later, the light again wmcdplay what the American leader said that "it was unusual".
The President of the European Commission (EC), Jean-Claude Juncker, denounced today U.S. efforts to split the EU countries up regarding the commercial policy.
Trump sought to calm the storm in comments on July 17, saying that he misspoke in Helsinki when he stated that he saw no reason to think that Russian Federation had meddled.
Trump's summit with Putin came after a June 12 meeting with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un that produced a joint statement committing the sides to the complete denuclearization of the Korean Peninsula. "We know they interfered with our elections, and we have passed sanctions on Russian Federation to hold them accountable".
House Speaker Paul Ryan, R-Wis., told reporters Tuesday that Russian Federation "did meddle with our elections" and said he would consider further sanctions against Moscow. Marco Rubio's proposal to impose sanctions on any country that interferes in U.S. elections. Chris Van Hollen, D-Md., to deter future Russian interference by ordering sanctions against countries if they do.
Corker, chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said he's looking at whether it would be appropriate to ask for any notes taken by the interpreter who was in the room during the private meeting between Trump and Putin in Helsinki.
U.S. investigations into allegations of election meddling have also soured Moscow-Washington relations, with Trump branding the probe a "witch hunt".
Trump's comments saw a major backlash, even inviting criticism from his fellow Republicans and supporters.
"They're not saying don't do this or this is the wrong thing to do", Flake said.
Durbin said backing a tough sanctions bill authored by Florida Republican Sen.
When he said he couldn't see how it "would" have been Russian Federation that was responsible for election interference, he says he actually meant to say he couldn't see how it "wouldn't" have been Russian Federation. Mark Warner, D-Va., top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on Twitter that Trump's comments were "simply false".
"I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't", Trump told reporters at the White House, more than 24 hours after his appearance with Putin. That's the part he corrected on Tuesday.
Among topics on the agenda at the White House will be foreign and security policy, economics and counterterrorism, spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said in a statement.
Secretary of State Mike Pompeo now admits that. negotiations to dismantle the regime's nuclear weapons program. But some of those report's authors have cautioned against reading too much into the various analysis.
That has prompted concern regulators might expand retaliation to trying to hamper operations of American companies in China. Beijing frequently rejects foreign comments about its own policies as improper interference in its affairs.
American Jewish organisations also expressed disapproval. "The Palestinian people will remain the sovereign of this land". Israeli Arab MPs condemned the legislation, but Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu praised it as a "defining moment".
Paul also says Putin isn't going to extradite the 12 Russian military intelligence officials charged with hacking Democrats. Last November, in Vietnam, they agreed to maintain open military channels of communications between their forces in Syria.

Trump maintained Tuesday's summit with Putin went "even better" than his meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies. Erik Paulsen offered a scathing assessment on Twitter , writing: "President Trump's performance in Helsinki was embarrassing".
