Kimmel rips Trump's 'clarification ceremony' about Russian Federation meddling comments

Donald Trump was criticised by Americans on both the right and left when he appeared to side with Vladimir Putin, and not his own intelligence agency, over accusations Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 United States election. "Sort of a double negative".

Lively praised Trump yesterday in an email to supporters, but Baker, under pressure from Democrats to disavow Trump's claims, did criticize the president - a day after the Trump-Putin summit press conference.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said later that Trump does believe that Russian Federation may try to target US elections again and the "threat still exists".

Still, remember, the most important thing is that there was no collusion.

Trump stunned the world on Monday by shying away from criticising the Russian leader for Moscow's actions to undermine the election and cast doubt on U.S. intelligence agencies.

Trump added that he had "full faith and support" in USA intelligence agencies and as he repeated the remark, the lights in the room were suddenly dimmed off. "Whoops, they just turned off the lights".

Mr Trump's change of heart came after Barack Obama delivered an excoriating attack on his successor and senior Republicans blasted Mr Trump's performance in Finland as weak and even treasonous.

Coats said last week that Russian Federation has been the most aggressive cyberthreat but other efforts are coming from China, Iran and North Korea as well as criminal networks and individual hackers.

"Well I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it, a lot of bad things happened under his watch", he said.

But, insisting he won the race fair and square, the Republican said: "I have President Putin, he just said it is not Russian Federation. I'm not pro-Russia, pro-anybody, I just want to have this country be safe, I don't want nuclear weapons- even people thinking about it". "And if they refused too, then Congress should subpoena".

Mark Warner, D-Va., top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee, said on Twitter that Trump's comments were "simply false". It's called Trump Derangement Syndrome! How many times have I stood up here and told you what I think about Vladimir Putin?

The drama continued as Trump headed to his next stop, the U.K. His first official visit was overshadowed by fallout from the rhetorical grenade he'd lobbed at British Prime Minister Theresa May before arriving.

In a shocking revelation, no one is buying Donald Trump's latest backflip.

But he also said that "other people" could have been involved, a statement echoing past remarks casting doubt on Russia's role.
