White House insists Trump believes Russian Federation still a threat

White House insists Trump believes Russian Federation still a threat

The president said, "Thank you very much, no", shaking his head.

Holt asked Wray about reports from early this year that he threatened to resign after Attorney General Jeff Sessions pressured him to fire FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

He appeared to respond again: "No".

The threat, according to Sanders, "still exists, which is why we are taking steps to prevent it". The president also answered questions after saying "no".

He praised his presidency saying, "It's only getting better as new greatly improved Trade Deals start coming to fruition".

On Monday, Trump met Putin in Helsinki, Finland, where he said that he had raised the issue of Russian meddling into the U.S. presidential elections.

Speaking later Wednesday, Sanders told reporters that Trump was saying no to answering questions, not to whether Russian Federation is still targeting the U.S. She said the administration is working to make sure Russian Federation doesn't meddle in the 2018 midterm elections.

Trump has also appeared on several occasions to question the U.S. intelligence findings that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 vote in a bid to undermine Democratic candidate Hillary Clinton.

He told a congressional committee in February he had already seen evidence that Russian Federation was targeting the upcoming mid-term elections in November. It would have just made things worse if I had stood next to him and called him a liar. He also attacked his Democratic opponents and the Federal Bureau of Investigation, and said he held both countries accountable for their state of relations.

Mr. Trump has contradicted Coats recently, telling "CBS Evening News" anchor Jeff Glor that he doesn't know if he necessarily agrees with Coats' warning about the "critical" threat of potentially devastating cyberattacks targeting USA systems.

Facebook moderators accused of turning blind eye to under-age accounts
Dispatches reveals the racist meme that Facebook moderators used as an example of acceptable content to leave on their platform. Facebook later said that these videos violated their policies on hate speech and that they would investigate the incidents.

Despite the controversy, Republican voters seem to be sticking by Mr Trump.

Trump has come under widespread domestic criticism about the meeting.

In the survey, 42 percent of all registered voters approved of his job performance, which is consistent with averages thus far.

Some 71% of Republicans polled approved of his response to Russian Federation, while only 14% of Democrats were in favour. Now it is the depths of Trump's own devotion to Putin that are attracting wider scrutiny and, incidentally, starting to become a viable election issue for Democrats in November midterm elections.

Democratic Rep. Ted Lieu of California labeled the discussion "BATS-T CRAZY" and demanded Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to "put a stop to this notion immediately". Meanwhile leading Democrats appear to be sensing a political opportunity, hoping they can pick up votes by appearing tougher on standing up to Russian Federation than the Republicans. "He recognises the fact that 90 per cent of the world's nuclear weapons are under the direction of the U.S. and Russian Federation", she said.

But McFaul, who served as ambassador from 2012 to 2014 and has written a memoir describing Putin's mission to discredit him, said he was alarmed that the White House would even entertain the idea. Instead, we must settle for Schwarzenegger verbally abusing Trump.

The immediate diplomatic reaction to Trump and Putin's press conference was scathing.

Even Republican lawmakers who accepted Trump's Tuesday walkback, when he explained that he misspoke when he said he had no reason to believe Russian Federation was involved in election interference, sounded the alarm yesterday.

On Tuesday, Mr Trump said he had reviewed the transcript and realised he needed to clarify. Not all. And I have to say this, some of the most honourable people I know, some great people, are reporters, journalists. "Sort of a double negative". "That was a big factor", Trump said.
