Trump backtracks on comments about Russian Federation election meddling, says he misspoke

The New York Times is being labeled “homophobic” after animating a make-out session between Vladimir Putin and President Trump

Trump and his staff stayed at the golf club for two nights, as the president played a pair of rounds at the course. Concrete legal or political action, however, was conspicuous by its absence.

A day after his much-criticized news conference with Russian President Vladimir Putin, President Trump attempted some damage control Tuesday, saying "I accept" the findings of the USA intelligence community that Russia interfered in the 2016 presidential campaign.

"My administration will repeal any attempt to interfere in our elections", he said. It's really clear. They should be no doubt about that.

Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer D-NY speaks to reporters on July 17, 2018 on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC. He could have signaled a desire to work toward more peaceful relations without coming across like a dupe. Vladimir Putin does not share our values.

The president showed no signs of backing down.

"I said the word "would" instead of 'wouldn't, '" Trump told reporters at the White House, more than 24 hours after his appearance with Putin.

"Sadly, it is not being reported that way - the Fake News is going insane!" he proclaimed.

Ryan said he had not spoken with Trump, who hosted Republican members of Congress to discuss another round of tax cuts.

Meanwhile, the Wall Street Journal, which is owned by Rupert Murdoch, declared the news conference "a personal and national embarrassment", asserting that Trump had "projected weakness". I have President Putin, he just said it's not Russian Federation.

In fact, the reaction back home was immediate and visceral, among fellow Republicans as well as usual Trump critics.

In a 2015 interview with Fox News' Sean Hannity, Trump answered "yes" when asked whether he had any contact with Putin. In excerpts of the Carlson interview publicised by Fox, Trump lashed out at Brennan, who led the Central Intelligence Agency under Barack Obama. "I think that probably clarifies it". "I thought that I made myself very clear" having reviewed the transcript. First lady Melania Trump was also aboard and was involved in some of the discussions, but not all of them, the people familiar with the matter said. The president didn't have to bow to Putin, fully embracing every obvious lie the Russian leader had told him. Diplomacy is good, and Democrats shouting "Treason!" whenever the president does something dumb is as obnoxious in the Trump years as it was when the Republicans did it during the Obama years.

"Flattering dictators will not advance American interests". "Our Republican colleagues can not just go, 'Tsk, tsk, tsk.' They must act if they want to help America".

Today's limp "would/wouldn't" stab at damage control follows fierce fallout from the Helsinki stop, that included a growing number of Republicans sending "Don't pay any attention to the orange guy on the stage" messages to North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies. The Texan replied: "There have been a lot of hearings".

"We had put in place sanctions".

NY newspaper Daily News also depicted a graphic cartoon on their front page today claiming "Open Treason".

"You saw the indictments from the special counsel". Trump denies collusion, as he did repeatedly from the podium in Helsinki.

He declined to offer specific criticism, but said: "I think we've all been foolish".
