Media condemn Trump-Putin-presser

Criticism comes from the left and the right.

President Trump, the former press spokesman Sean Spicer acknowledged on Sunday that his former boss should have been faster in the clarification of his comments during a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin last week over Moscow’s meddling in the 2016 presidential elections, but the fault of the media for blowing the issue out of proportion.

Speaking of Howard Kurtz on Fox News’ “media hype” on Sunday, Spicer said that Trump had said, he fumbled his words when he appeared to side with Putin, and cast doubt on U.S. intelligence conclusions about the Russian interference, added, however, that Trump had spoken in the past, very clearly about Russian hackers.

“I think the Problem is the degree and the intensity with which they went after him,” Spicer said of the media. “There’s this anger from the media was that a lot of people thought that you had to react.”

Spicer added: “the Majority of Republicans, most Americans are glad he did.”

While Spicer that half of the Americans is not true that the majority of Republican voters across the country approve of trump dealing with the summit in Finland, Putin, the latest polling shows.

According to a Washington Post-ABC News poll released on Sunday, 50 percent of Americans disapprove of how the President dealt with his summit with Putin, with just 33 percent approve. The question to trump, casting doubt on U.S. intelligence services in relation to the Russian intervention, the number jumped to 56 percent opposed to approve and only 29 percent.

Trump’s public doubts as to the blame Russia for disruptions in 2016 — to clarify if he tried “” his remarks a day later — triggered cross-party condemnation in Washington and resolved to seek congressional lawmakers to toughen sanctions against the longtime US foe.

By the time Trump came back to the United States, the parade of the critical comments was to a stampede, leaving the President of the most isolated, he would be in the White house since last year, the controversy over white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville.

Trump waited 27 hours, and five sent a tweet and sat there for two TV interviews after his first comments, in Helsinki, before you claim, he would be interference from a confusing “double negative” and mean “would” instead of “not” in a key sentence at his press conference about who was responsible for the choice.

“The sentence should have been: I see no reason why I would — not or why it would not be Russia”, the President said on Tuesday before a meeting with Republican members of Congress.

The next day brought a fresh challenge. Trump appeared to answer “no” to a reporter s whether Russia was targeting the United States, to say, While hours later, press Secretary Sarah Sanders was born Trump had simply tried to put an end to the questioning, by saying “no”, although he continued to discuss, to Russia.

And Sanders created a fresh headache for the administration, as you said, the White house was still reviewing a proposal from Putin to the access of Russian law-enforcement authorities to the Americans, which the Kremlin accuses of unknown crimes, in return for US access to the interrogations of the Russian agents for their alleged roles in a interference in the election of 2016. The State Department refused, however, to the proposal, the Trump days before, had been the “incredible offer as “absurd.”

In spite of the cleaning within the ring road to Helsinki, the new survey suggests that it has done little to shift attitudes towards trump. In the average of recent polls compiled by Real Clear politics finds that nearly 53 percent of Americans disapprove of the President, compared to just over 43 percent approve.

President Barack Obama saw 46 percent of Americans with
favorable views of him at the same point in his presidency, in July 2010, while 46 percent disapproved. Similarly, 69 percent of Americans approved of President George W. Bush in July 2002, while 24 percent disapproved.
