Putin: US-Russia ties should not be held hostage to Mueller probe

Putin: US-Russia ties should not be held hostage to Mueller probe

Mr Putin denied the claim. We won't let the president say otherwise, but we're facing a question: "Where do we go from here?"

The president framed his remarks as a clarification, but Albright said she is still unclear on how he feels about Russian Federation or whether he believes Putin.

"Those are the worst reviews I've seen since Titanic", Colbert said.

In his comments in the aftermath of a white supremacist riot in Charlottesville, Va., and the assertion today that he holds "both countries responsible" for the poor state of Russian-U.S. relations, Trump has deflected criticism with moral relativism, the tactic popularly known as "whataboutism".

Trump tried on Tuesday to calm a storm over his failure to hold Putin accountable for meddling in the 2016 US election, saying he misspoke in a joint news conference in Helsinki. "I have great confidence in my intelligence people".

How did it play at home? There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russian Federation, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals. They did interfere in our elections.

"No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant", Mr McCain said in a statement. He is also a member of the Senate Committee on Banking, Housing and Urban Affairs and the Senate Finance Committee.

Former CIA director John Brennan slammed Trump's neglect of his own intelligence services.

Southgate added: "I thought Stones was absolutely outstanding and [goalkeeper Jordan] Pickford has had a wonderful tournament". Meanwhile, England head into the game following a 2-1 defeat to Croatia in the semi-final encounter played on Wednesday.

In the United Kingdom, the Guardian splashed on a picture of Trump and Putin's Helsinki handshake with the headline "Nothing short of treasonous: Trump accused over Putin talks". Republican Patriots: "Where are you???"

Many top Republicans remained on the sidelines after the Justice Department on Friday indicted 12 Russian intelligence officials for election-related hacking. Putin said. "This is utterly ridiculous". In an interview with Russian TV outlet Channel 1, Putin offered compliments of Trump following their summit, saying he was an "interesting conversation partner".

Trump "delivered us here with a display of cowardly self-interest", Cuomo said, but this ended up bringing people together.

"Well, first of all, all of us have plenty of political rivals".

At the press conference, Putin laughed off a question about having compromising information on President Trump.

"About four hours after the press conference, Trump tweeted a bit of damage control, saying, "'I have GREAT confidence in MY intelligence people.' However, I also recognize that in order to build a brighter future, we can not exclusively focus on the past - as the world's two largest nuclear powers, we must get along!"

It was also pointed out he made a handwritten note of his own during his "clarification" moment. "Nobody gives it to us, he said".
