However, nearly as many, 35 percent, say Trump handled Putin "about right"; 15 percent say he did not go far enough to support Putin.

That comes after a week of drama, back tracking, a double negative and blistering statements from allies about his attitude toward Russian election interference.

President Donald Trump on Monday morning attempted to combat reports of growing concerns about what Trump and Vladimir Putin discussed during their closed-door meeting a week ago.

Trump has repeatedly cast doubt on the findings of USA intelligence agencies that released a report in January 2017 saying they concluded that Russian President Vladimir Putin had ordered a hacking-and-propaganda campaign targeting the election.

Most Americans do not feel Trump went "too far" in supporting Putin, and while more Americans say United States leadership has gotten weaker than stronger under Trump, his ratings on this question are slightly improved from last fall. He asked his interviewer, "Say that again, did I hear you?"

Criticizing Trump is, perhaps, something Barletta will never do: Barletta makes no bones about his hope that the coalition that propelled Trump to a win of less than 1 percentage point in Pennsylvania over Democrat Hillary Clinton will deliver a victory for him in November.

Tuesday will be the first day Trump and the White House understands what protesters are saying as we have hired an individual who will be translating what the protesters are saying from English to Russian very loudly.
