Melania Trump's facial expression after greeting Putin sparks Twitter meltdown

He's been doing a very good job. "I'm not sure we can change his mind about it, but I'll tell you, we can pass a law that does something about it". "It better not be".

Members of Congress from both parties have suggested possible legislation to toughen US sanctions against Russian Federation and enhance election security ahead of November's midterm voting. But he declined to say whether his faith in the intelligence community leads him to the conclusion that Putin's denials are untrue.

Trump added: "Just like I consider myself to be responsible for things that happen in this country".

"Certainly I can't have any confidence in the past".

"I think I did great at the news conference". I think that [CIA Director] Gina [Haspel] is excellent. But, he added: "I think it was, what, $100,000 worth of Facebook ads?"

The New York Times cited several people who attended a highly classified intelligence briefing January 6, 2017 who confirmed Trump was told about Putin's involvement.

Nancy Pelosi, Democratic leader in the House of Representatives, tried on Tuesday to stage a symbolic vote to support the findings of Russian interference, but was blocked by Republicans.

On Tuesday, Trump attempted to walk back his comments by claiming he meant to say he didn't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation. All three have been vociferous critics of the president - after the president's press conference in Helsinki, Brennan said Mr. Trump's performance was "nothing short of treasonous".

It was used by Rand Paul, the Republican senator for Kentucky, earlier in the week as he became one of the few politicians to defend Mr Trump's election meddling comments. "No", Mr Trump responded, shaking his head.

He also offered a twisted explanation of his assertion in Helsinki that he could not see "any reason" why Russian Federation would interfere, claiming he misspoke.

"Well, I would, because he's in charge of the country. The system is blinking" and that "today, the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack".

Even as the White House said the offer, made by Putin to President Donald Trump at their summit in Helsinki on Monday, was under consideration, the State Department called Russia's allegations against the Americans "absurd", suggesting that any questioning of them would not be countenanced by the US.

The White House said on Wednesday that Trump would meet with his team about U.S officials being questioned by Russian Federation.

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.
