Trump says he misspoke on Russian meddling

'An absolute disgrace': Republicans blast Trump for his 'disgusting' press conference with Putin

Subsequently, former CIA Director John Brennan said Trump's behavior during the press conference was "nothing short of treasonous".

Trump added: "Frankly, we have not been getting along for the last number of years".

Trump was excoriated on both sides of the aisle Monday for his remarks after his private talk with Putin in which he challenged the conclusion of USA intelligence agencies that Russian Federation was responsible for meddling in the 2016 election.

I think he's doing exactly what he said he's seeking to do, he believes it's better to talk to people and to engage with them and again this obviously has been highly controversial in America and I don't run a commentary on Australian politics let alone American Politics.

"President Putin, he just said it's not Russian Federation".

For more than 15 months, Donald Trump and his administration have refused to publicly condemn the systematic torture, abuse, and murder of LGBTQ people occurring in Chechnya as Vladimir Putin has licensed the violence to continue. We won't let the president say otherwise, but we're facing a question: "Where do we go from here?" Trump also said the Federal Bureau of Investigation needed to find Hillary Clinton's emails.

He called the meeting "really interesting" and deflected criticism of his eagerness to meet with Putin, despite a fuzzy agenda, and the outcome.

"The cover story to accompany the cartoon is titled 'Putin's Poodle: Trump sells out US intelligence agencies with the world watching".

"Yes I do. I hold both countries responsible".

"Diplomacy and engagement are better than hostility", Trump said. "The relationship has improved substantially, he said, as a result of the meeting with Putin". Rand Paul, a Kentucky Republican, who had defended Trump in television interviews, saying he's been the focus of a "partisan investigation" over Russian Federation and that the President is "sensitive to that".

Putin spoke frankly on the topic of Crimea, saying that the USA delegation had expressed its view that the invasion was illegal.

Risch, R-Idaho, joined several fellow Republican members of the Senate Intelligence Committee in voicing his support for USA intelligence and denouncing Russian Federation.

"More importantly, what we intend to do is to make sure that they don't get away with it again and also to help our allies, to help those democracies, those new and older democracies in the world who are going to be facing this Russian Federation again - this Russian Federation aggression again".

Putin noted that Russia would expect the U.S.to return the favor and cooperate in the Russian probe against William Browder, a British investor charged of financial crimes in Russia.

Additionally, Putin stressed that both militaries must work together to crush extremists in southwestern Syria, in part to help ensure Israel's security, something that Putin pointed out was important to Trump.

In an interview with Fox News' Chris Wallace on Monday, Putin once again denied that Russia interfered in the US elections - calling it "utterly ridiculous" that some people think the Russians could have swayed millions of American voters.

Just hours before his meeting with Putin, Trump blamed "many years of U.S. foolishness and stupidity", in reference to previous administrations, and the ongoing Russian Federation probe for the bad state of bilateral relations. We should have had this dialogue a long time ago. They met in private, with only translators present, but Schumer referred to notes that were taken in debriefings of the meeting.
