Trump walks back from Putin summit remarks, says he 'misspoke'

Trump walks back from Putin summit remarks, says he 'misspoke'

"And I think we're all to blame".

Kimmel began by calling Trump a "liar" for trying to walk back "what the Helsinki was going through his cotton candy-colored head" when he "took sides with Russia" over the United States intel agencies about the meddling in the 2016 election.

Coats' statement broke with Trump, who expressed doubts at the Helsinki summit with Kremlin leader Vladimir Putin about the intelligence community's finding.

Mr Trump said: "I realise there's a need for some clarification", adding that what he meant "should have been obvious - I thought it would be obvious but would like to clarify in case it wasn't". If we had to pick a favorite we'd probably call it a toss-up between Colbert and Meyers, but that might just be because we're more familiar with them and thus more tolerant of their deliveries and viewpoints.

Donald Trump has backtracked on his claim that he "didn't see any reason" why Russian Federation would be involved in U.S. election meddling.

Despite Trump's assertion that Putin has offered a hand, Mueller's office has suggested that the Kremlin has been less than forthcoming in another criminal case brought against Russian Federation. "That must be the intelligence agencies".

"You were very strong at the end of that press conference", Hannity said, parroting back Trump's "Where are the servers?"

He added: "We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy, and we will continue to provide unvarnished and objective intelligence in support of our national security".

However, Mr Trump found support from Republican Senator Rand Paul, who blamed "Trump derangement syndrome" for the criticism - prompting a supportive tweet from the president himself.

Putin proposed that same plan after they met at a Group of Seven summit in Germany past year.

Ryan's comments came after Trump said at a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin that he sees no reason why Russia would interfere in the US election.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., described the meeting in Helsinki as a "tragic mistake". Putin said that issue came up during their private meetings, but Trump did not discuss it during the press conference.

Putin spoke to Fox shortly after a high-profile summit in which Trump blamed USA "foolishness" and "stupidity" for troubled U.S.

Spokespeople for the Justice Department and special counsel Robert Mueller declined to comment on Trump's comments or on Putin's purported offers for assistance.

"It's a shame, we're talking about nuclear proliferation and Syria, and humanitarian aide, and we get question on the witch hunt", Trump complained.
