On Tuesday, Trump initially saw no need to walk back his comments, a person familiar with the discussion said in a Bloomberg report. Trump leaned forward in his chair, his hands tented in front of him and frequently glanced over at the Russian president. He also claimed that the United States was responsible for the toxic relationship between Washington and Moscow.

"That is a developing bit of analysis that you're gonna find even on what you would consider to be Trump-friendly media", Rush said.

"To me, it's the only question that interests the American press", reporter Yegor Kolyvanov said on NTV, a Kremlin-controlled national TV channel. "The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russian Federation'".

"I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but President Putin's denial was strong", Trump reiterated.

"We stand by our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and all those countries that are facing Russian Federation aggression". 'So it's amusing that we keep talking about Trump and Russia, when in fact the only person actually known to pay Russian agents was Hillary Clinton, who paid a British spy who then paid British agents who concocted dirt on Trump'.

"The president must appreciate that Russian Federation is not our ally", Ryan said. The drama was playing out against a backdrop of fraying Western alliances, a new peak in the Russian Federation investigation and fears that Moscow's aggression may go unchallenged.

Former CIA director John Brennan had said Trump's remarks were 'treasonous.' So did Fox News host Shep Smith and CNN host Fareed Zakaria.

And he again floated the idea that "other people" could be involved.

Trump told reporters Tuesday at the White House that he misspoke at the summit.

But he says President Trump should not have confronted Putin on election interference, and the president also denied it entirely.

"I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said. I will say this.

In a hastily called White House gathering of reporters, Trump said he has full faith in the USA intelligence agencies and their assertion that Russian Federation tampered with the 2016 election.

In the Finnish capital, Trump had refused to say he believed USA intelligence agencies over Russia's denials of meddling and delivered no condemnation of Moscow's interference. Those final clauses quickly became the focus of journalists who wondered if the president still harbored doubts about intelligence agency findings. "I have a full faith in our intelligence agencies", Trump said, in a prepared statement.

Twenty-four hours after saying he did not have faith in his USA intel agencies and instead believed the "very strong and powerful" words of the strongman standing next to him in Helsinki who orchestrated Russian interference in the 2016 election, Trump announced today is Opposite Day.
