Shortly after refusing to condemn Putin and back the US intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation had interfered with the 2016 US Presidential election, Trump was met with a wave of criticism from both parties.

"I think the president owes the American people, and more importantly he owes the intelligence community, all the information that was shared in those two hours when nobody was present", Emanuel said during the news conference at police headquarters.

"I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place", he said. "There was no collusion at all".

Just now, President Putin denied having anything to do with the election interference in 2016.

Speaking at the White House on Tuesday, Trump said he misspoke when he addressed reporters in Helsinki a day earlier.

Trump said it was "sort of a double negative", adding, "I think that probably clarifies things pretty good by itself".

Speaking publicly for the first time since his comments at the summit were widely condemned, Trump said that after reviewing a transcript of his remarks he realized that he meant to say that he "would not" see any reason why Russian Federation didn't interfere.

"Could be other people also", Trump said, appearing to ad-lib. Trump said that Putin had been "extremely strong and powerful" in his denial of attempting to influence America's elections.

Trump has incomparably more influence with the base than the Republican Party's leaders in Congress: outgoing House Speaker Paul Ryan and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell.

Browder's NY financial partners, Ziff Brothers Investments, donated only $1.75 million in the 2016 campaign, spreading it among candidates for many offices in both parties and favoring Republicans in congressional races.

Republicans strongly support President Trump's more orthodox actions, such as his nomination of Neil Gorsuch and Brett Kavanaugh to the Supreme Court and last year's tax bill.

President Donald Trump assured reporters and the public Monday that relations with Russian Federation will improve.

The summit capped a tumultuous trip during which Trump accused North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies of failing to spend enough on their militaries and embarrassed May by saying she had refused to take his advice about how to negotiate Britain's exit from the EU.

He also spoke for equality, saying that "I would have thought we had figured that out by now".

Trump tried to stop the bleeding on Tuesday, with a statement to the press in the Roosevelt Room of the White House, during which the notoriously loathe-to-retreat president sounded a note of contrition.

"Frankly, I don't think those USA presidents at any point came off as not pursuing US security interests, as being taken in by the Soviet leader they were meeting with", said Alina Polyakova, a foreign policy fellow at the Brookings Institution.

That's just how much damage Trump did to his presidency with his embarrassing performance in Helsinki on Monday. One officials said Trump spent the weekend "growling" about the possibility that they would hurt him politically, while another said he was in favor of the release because he wanted to discuss the matter with Putin privately.

With this tension, Tchantouridze says Americans should not be too anxious but he says do keep in mind that most of Russia's intercontinental ballistic missiles target the Northeast, as they see it as a seat of power for the country. USA intelligence agencies have concluded that Russia did indeed wage a cyber-attack against the election, and on Friday, as the Inquisitr reported, Russia investigation Special Counsel Robert Mueller issued a detailed indictment of 12 Russian military intelligence officers for carrying out that cyber-attack.

"In a key sentence in my remarks, I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't", he explained. Unlike many other news organizations, we have not put up a paywall.
