Donald Trump backtracks on Helsinki remarks, says he 'misspoke'

Will Hurd is advising against President Donald Trump having solo meetings with other world leaders because "too much is at stake".

The interpreter is Marina Gross.

Anatoly Antonov's statement came amid a backlash against comments made by US President Donald Trump over Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential election, an accusation that US intelligence agencies have confirmed but Russian President Vladimir Putin has denied on multiple occasions.

"If the president can't say directly to President Putin that he is wrong, and we are right and our intelligence agencies are right, it's ineffective and worse, another sign of weakness", he said.

'Serving as a translator, it has been reported that Ms. Marina Gross was the only other American in the room and so the sole reliable witness to the conversation between the two world leaders'. She said Trump was saying "no" to answering additional questions - even though he subsequently went on to address Russian Federation.

This was in direct contrast to the conclusions drawn by Trump's own intelligence agencies. Pompeo is to publicly testify before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee on July 25.

"The sentence should have been 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia, ' " Trump said while reading from a prepared statement at the White House. The press conference followed their private meeting.

On Tuesday, Trump attempted to walk back his widely criticized comments, saying he agreed with the USA intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation interfered in the election. Republican Senate Leader Mitch McConnell and House of Representatives Speaker Paul Ryan called Russia's government "menacing" and said they could consider additional sanctions on Russian Federation. "I have President Putin. Directly contradicted by DNI Coats, who just sounded the alarm about Russia's 'ongoing, ' pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy". "I don't see any reason why it would be", the president said.

Trump's appearance with Russian President Vladimir Putin has drawn broad condemnation from Democratic and Republicans alike.

Democrats are demanding action to rein in Trump and counter Russia, from congressional hearings on the Helsinki summit to increased sanctions against Russia to legislation protecting the special counsel in the Russia investigation, Robert Mueller.

Mainly reading from a prepared statement, Trump on Tuesday said he had complete faith in United States intelligence agencies and accepted their conclusions.
