DNI Dan Coats Calls Out Trump's Russia Comments At Aspen Security Forum

The backlash has thrust Trump onto the defensive, leading to days of conflicting statements from both the president and the White House.

-South Korean military exercises Trump canceled for being "tremendously expensive", and nearly the size of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day Parade.

Meanwhile, Clapper said he and other intelligence officials briefed Trump on January 6, 2017, before his inauguration, that there was Russian interference in the 2016 election, and the "the fact that President [Vladimir] Putin was directly involved and directly ordered this".

Mr Trump has faced fierce criticism for contradicting his own intelligence agencies by refusing to blame Russian Federation for meddling in the 2016 election. "They truly have taken advantage of the USA, but not for long!"

Trump's comments in support of arch-rival Russian Federation were condemned by both Democrats and Republicans. Trump made a rare personal correction on Tuesday, telling reporters he misspoke and meant to say "wouldn't" instead of saying he didn't see any reason why Russian Federation "would" interfere.

"The Summit with Russian Federation was a great success, except with the real enemy of the people, the Fake News Media", he wrote. "The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation'". "I have President Putin. We are doing MUCH better than any other country!"

The July 30 issue also includes an article about the leaders' controversial summit in Helsinki, Finland on Monday. The two presidents met for over two hours one-on-one, with only translators, meaning that no written record of what was discussed exists.

"They were in charge of national security, they failed and they're now hysterical trying to get us to look at Trump", he said on "America's Newsroom". "I think it was a strong news conference". "I think we did extremely well". "We should have had this dialogue a long time ago".

One of those being sought by Russian Federation is former USA ambassador to Moscow Michael McFaul, but allowing him to be questioned would breach the legal immunity normally granted to a country's foreign service.

"The list goes on and on and on", he said.

"Trump's behaviour was a total disaster for long-term prospects of the normalization of the U.S. -Russia relationship", said Alexander Gabuev of the Carnegie Moscow Center.

He added that Russian Federation is "nevertheless open to developing contacts with the USA on the basis of equality". Interestingly, the merged image of the two leaders has scared many people on social media. Putin warned however of the dangers of Moscow and Washington failing to continue to mend ties, saying the New START strategic arms reduction treaty would expire in a year and a half unless work on extending it started now.

The New START treaty, which was agreed to by President Barack Obama and President Dmitry Medvedev, confirmed and expanded Cold War-era commitments by Russian Federation and the U.S.to reduce their deployed nuclear warheads.
