But I just asked him again, and he said he absolutely did not meddle in our election.
In Tokyo, no sooner did Trump's plane leave the tarmac than the finance minister declared that "We won't do an FTA". "I really believe that when they said it was just a peace offering, they meant it".
But once again, in that same answer, Trump chose to empathize with Putin, even suggesting that the US ought to consider pulling back on sanctions imposed on Russian Federation.
"What do you mean you believe him?".
In fact, Trump has stated that one of the ways to obtain Russia's help in solving the North Korea crisis is by getting China to support US efforts and initiatives. "I don't know why the ambiguity about this", Mr. Brennan said during a recent appearance on CNN. We know this because Mr. Trump actually used the words, "political hacks", to describe the two veteran intelligence officials (as well as former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey), who believe Mr. Trump is getting played by Mr. Putin like composer Igor Stravinsky seated at the piano - masterfully. The notorious 45th US President confined himself to a formal handshake with Putin at the photoshoot ceremony, but was evasive and quickly retired.
Recently, U.S. lawmakers questioned representatives of tech giants Facebook, Twitter and Google about Russia's use of their social media platforms to spread disinformation during last year's presidential campaign. It's obvious. He had the most to gain and it helped get him elected.
I would love for Brennan, Clapper or any reporter to list what Obama, Kerry or Hillary did to make the world a safer place during his eight years before they lecture Trump about being played.
Trump, Source C continues, even offered to defend Bill Clinton during impeachment proceedings: "He said he did not inhale".
After a brief unscheduled meeting between President Trump and President Putin, the United States and Russian Federation released a joint statement on Syria. "I pray all the hatred in the United States will stop and everyone works together to restore our Nation instead of trying to cause World War III", another added. "They (Russia) have been at this a hell of a long time". And in the end, even if Russian Federation did meddle in our elections, maybe we ought not punish them for having done so since they've been heavily sanctioned in a way that prevents a friendly posture. But Trump doesn't believe that the country didn't have an influence. John McCain, chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, who felt obligated to issue a statement over the weekend reminding everyone that "Vladimir Putin does not have America's interests at heart". Russian Federation believes it to be in its interest to keep Assad's Syria as a proxy ally and eastern Ukraine (indeed Ukraine as a whole) as a de facto part of Russian Federation.
What exactly he will announce is a mystery but he promised to reveal all when back home in the White House.
Over on Late Night, Meyers made jokes at the president's expense during his "Closer Look" segment. "So you look at that and you have President Putin very strongly, vehemently says he had nothing to do with them".
"I have been asked it a million times; it is true, yeah of course". If they don't, his successor may have occasion to remark that Russian Federation has never had a better friend than Trump.
