How The Trump-Putin Relationship Resonates With The President's Supporters

  • Republicans mull curbing Trump after Putin summit

"The president and his team has 24 hours - 24 hours - to come up with a reason why Trump took Russia's side against America, and the best they could come up with is "nuh-uh". Putin said United States intelligence officers helped Browder. "I would, because he's in charge of the country".

"We need to be working feverishly here to harden our defenses", Graham said after delivering an impassioned floor speech late Tuesday.

Mr Trump's meeting with Mr Putin in Helsinki was his first time sharing the global stage with a man he has described as an important United States competitor - but whom he has also praised a strong, effective leader.

House Republican Mike Turner accused Mr Trump of having damaged American foreign policy by failing to take Russian Federation to task.

Sanders explanation of Trump's "No" was the second time since Monday's summit that Trump and the White House have blamed a misstatement or misunderstanding for the furore over Russian Federation.

US President Donald Trump (L) and Russia's President Vladimir Putin arrive to attend a joint press conference after a meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki, on July 16, 2018. "There are lots of people out there".

There was disappointment however when Trump seemed to not only rubbish claims of Putin's interference, but to defend the country's innocence over the findings of his own intelligence agencies.

Putin has denied the allegations.

Earlier Wednesday, Trump claimed that no USA president has been as "tough" as him on Russian Federation.

Sanders said "there was some conversation about" Putin's proposed exchange during Trump's summit with the Russian leader in Helsinki on Monday, where the two leaders spent about two hours together accompanied only by translators.

The case will come before the courts again on August 3, although Mafi was excused from having to appear personally on that date. Mafi, the 2017 Australian Super Rugby player of the year, is out of contract with the Rebels at the end of this season.


Next GT-R will be 'world's fastest super sportscar'
Nissan had previously developed hybrid powertrain with twin-turbo V6 that will be used for the 2016 LMP1 GT-R race auto . It will be surprising if Nissan ignores electric assistance in the next GT-R trying to compete with other supercars.


The phrase "Trump Derangement Syndrome" is used by the president's supporters to describe how his critics get so infuriated that they lash out excessively at his behaviour.

"And he shouldn't be happy about it because there's never been a president as tough on Russian Federation as I have been". "I think I'm speaking for John Brennan and Mike Hayden, it's nearly a badge of honor, when the President sees fit to go after individual private citizens", said Clapper.

Mr. Trump called Brennan a "low-life" in Wednesday's interview, saying that "in the past, it's been awful".

Democratic leaders immediately called for Trump to cancel the scheduled meeting with the Russian president, but the White House said the summit would go ahead. "Directly contradicted by DNI Coats, who just sounded the alarm about Russia's 'ongoing, ' pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

Trump's comments came a day after he walked back his public questioning of US intelligence findings of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

"My administration will repeal any attempt to interfere in our elections", he said.

CBS Evening News' Jeff Glor landed an interview with President Donald Trump that's set to air in increments over the next couple of days. "I think he's a very bad person". "They are very aggressive people, they may get aggressive, and congratulations, you are in World War Three".
