Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the minority leader, says never in the history of the country has a president supported an American adversary the way Trump supported Putin. “I think that’s wishful thinking”, said Harding. “I don’t see any reason why it would be”.
Trump tweeted from Air Force One on Monday as he travelled back to the United States that he has “GREAT confidence” in his intelligence team but ‘in order to build a brighter future, we can not exclusively focus on the past’. “What about Hillary Clinton’s emails?”
Trump appeared to take the Russian president’s denial of interference at face value while calling the U.S.’s own Justice Department special counsel’s probe as a “disaster”.
“I addressed the issue of Russian interference in our elections”.
“Putin directed an attack on our American democracy & Russian Federation interfered with our elections”, Baldwin tweeted.
Instead, Harden argued, Trump did exactly what Putin wanted. “Yes I did. Yes I did”, he said.
Speaking on Monday, President Putin offered to allow United States investigators to visit Russian Federation to question the officers. First, he said, he believes Putin and Trump’s comments on Syria suggested a concrete agreement had likely been reached to curtail Iran’s presence close to Israel in southern Syria.
As you may be aware, Trump and Putin held their summit in Helsinki today. Trump and Putin finally entered the Gothic Hall in the Finnish presidential palace at 2:10 p.m.
Anderson Cooper has never been one to hold back when it comes to critiquing President Donald Trump.
For his part, Trump criticised the ongoing United States investigation into the allegations as a “disaster”.
And he added: “To all our allies: there are still many of us in Congress that know Russian Federation is not just an adversary to the United States but to freedom loving people everywhere”. “We have discussions on everything from trade to military to missiles to nuclear to China”. “I won that race, and it’s a shame there can be a little bit of a cloud over it”. American presidents must be the champions of that cause if it is to succeed.
Trump answered several questions as he leaned forward in his chair, hands tented in front of him and looking directly at cameras placed in front of the two men. The White House over the weekend took action following CNN reporter Jim Acosta’s attempt to interject a question into a Trump news conference Friday by pulling Trump national security adviser John Bolton from a planned appearance on Jake Tapper’s weekend show.
Putin has denied on multiple occasions Russian Federation meddled in the USA election. “But our cooperation between the two countries has the potential to save hundreds of thousands of lives”, said Trump.
“I have been here not too long”.
“I did not think this was a good moment for our country”, Corker said. I felt this was a message best delivered in person.
“As an American who remembers doing duck and cover drills in school and the terror of the Cold War, I was appalled to see our president call America’s foreign policy “stupid” and ‘foolish, ‘ and even more disturbed that he will not accept that Russian Federation launched a coordinated cyberattack on our country”.
The United States does not have an extradition treaty with Russian Federation, making it highly doubtful the Kremlin would ever voluntarily send over the defendants to be prosecuted in an American court. It’s not a positive force.
