Trump deflects question on Russia meddling against Putin presser

President Trump, after being questioned by a reporter if he believed that the AMERICAN intelligence service, or Vladimir Putin denial about the intervention in the 2016 elections, says he has confidence in both parties; John Roberts reports on the key issues of the post-summit press conference.

President Donald Trump was governed by Dictionary.com Monday, tweeted the definition of “traitor” after his extraordinary joint press conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki.

Trump came under fire for his performance in the press conference, with the critics on both sides of the political aisle slamming his handling of questions about alleged Russian interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential election. Standing next to his Russian counterpart, Trump openly questioned his own intelligence agencies’ conclusions that Moscow was to blame for meddling in the election of Trump’s advantage and seemed to accept Putin’s insistence that Russia’s hands were clean.

In a tweet, former director of the CIA, John Brennan described the Chairman of the performance in the press conference as “nothing less than a betrayal,” and his remarks as “imbecilic.”

In response, Dictionary.com tweeted that searches for the word “imbecilic” on the platform up to shoot.

The White House has not yet responded to a request for comment from Fox News.

During the press conference, Putin said that he indeed wants Trump to win the 2016 โ€” as a result of his policies, but took no action to make it happen.

TRUMP MAKES FIRST TWEETS AS PRESIDENT

Putin also suggested on Monday that Moscow and Washington may jointly conduct criminal investigations in a dozen Russian intelligence officers accused of hacking into 2016 during the AMERICAN election campaign โ€” an idea Trump praised as an “incredible offer.”

The press conference closed out the Trump card-Putin summit, where the American president delivered what seemed like a warm hug from the man who for years has been isolated by the US and the Western allies of Russia’s activities in Ukraine, Syria and beyond.

U.S. Sen. John McCain struck a Trumpet after the press conference. The damage inflicted by President Trump’s naivety, selfishness, false equivalence, and sympathy for rulers it is difficult to calculate. But it is clear that the summit in Helsinki was a tragic mistake,” he wrote, in a statement.

The Arizona Republican and Chairman of the Senate Armed Services Committee added that Trump is not willing to stand up to Putin. “He and Putin seemed to speak from the same script as the president made a conscious choice to defend a tyrant at the fair questions of a free press, and to provide Putin an uncontested platform to spew propaganda and lies the world,” McCain added.

The top began just hours after Trump the debt of the United States โ€” and not the Russian election intervention or the annexation of the Crimea โ€” for a low point in U.S.-Russia relations.
