UPDATE: Trump says Russia actions had no impact on outcome of elections, accepts U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia meddling took place.
In addition : Trump says he meant to say in Helsinki that he saw no reason why it would not be Russia that interfered in elections.
Is it dementia, or just damage control? He is so much braver now that he and Putin are on 2 different continents.
"I’ve said this many times,” Trump said. “I accept our intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election took place. Could be other people also. A lot of people out there.”
you already know exactly what is going to happen: his supporters will buy it because they trust him more then they trust the lying media who broadcast his words. Republican will privately say he is an idiot but will refuse to do anything in public for fear , everyone else will have the same reaction that Lebron had
Good. Trump has done as he should have done after this embarrassing mess up. It sort of reminds me of the time President Ford insisted that Poland was independent of the then Soviet Union. A stupid statement, taken back, that did not affect policy.
I do not blame Democrats for trying to make much of this presser. A presser, however, is not implemented policy. A stupid statement is not Treason.
As usual, Democrats went way to far with this. It is a speech, not a sell out to Russia. There really is a difference.
I applaud Donald Trump for doing the right thing following his slightly disappointing meeting with Putin. A strong leader knows how to respond when things don’t go right. They adjust and they learn from their mistakes. The weak are the ones who always win, because they never have an opportunity to improve from their mistakes. Bravo Mr President. Thank you for keeping America great.
