President Trump Says He Holds Putin 'Responsible' for Election Meddling

Early Wednesday, Trump was back to touting a meeting that he said would lead to "big results" and "many positive things", including Russia's help with his efforts to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons.

"The president. was saying "No" to answering questions", White House spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said at a news briefing later.

U.S. President Donald Trump and Russia's President Vladimir Putin shake hands during a joint news conference after their meeting in Helsinki, Finland, July 16, 2018.

The anniversary of Trump's inauguration in January also led protesters to play his infamous Access Hollywood tape, in which the now-president bragged about committing sexual assault, on a loop near the White House for 12 consecutive hours.

"The president ... was saying "No" to answering questions", Sanders said at a news briefing.

The spokeswoman said Trump and his administration are "working very hard to make sure that Russian Federation is unable to meddle as they have done in the past". "I let him know we can't have this, we're not going to have it, and that's the way it's going to be", he continued. "We're living in the real world, OK?"

Trump's comments during the interview and USA intelligence assessments conflicted with Putin's denials that Russian Federation had interfered with the 2016 election.

"I can only say that I do have confidence in our intelligence agencies as now constituted", Trump said to CBS News.

On Tuesday, Trump said he misspoke at a Helsinki news conference with Putin and that he accepted intelligence agency conclusions about Russian meddling, although he hedged by deviating from his prepared notes to say "it could be other people also". Many on Capitol Hill, including House Speaker Paul Ryan, plainly stated their support for the conclusions of investigators that Russian Federation interfered in the election after the presidents' Helsinki meeting.

Unbowed by swirling criticism of his summit encounter with Vladimir Putin, President Donald Trump swiftly invited the Russian leader to the White House this fall for a second get-together. "I'll tell you, though, it better not be [happening]".

CHANG: All right, to talk more about all of this we've got NPR's Scott Horsley on the line, who joins us from the White House. Putin skirted around the question, referring instead to the assassinations of former President John F. Kennedy and political activist, Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

He restated the USA intelligence assessment about Russian meddling and Moscow's "ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

Trump discussed some of these things directly, face-to-face with Putin, she said.

Putin accused Browder of making campaign contributions to Trump's election rival Hillary Clinton with money he earned in Russian Federation on which he did not pay taxes.

"The meeting between President Putin and myself was a great success, except in the Fake News Media", the 72-year-old USA leader tweeted.

But Trump stopped short of alleging Putin was dishonest and said he did not "want to get into whether or not he's lying".
