John Howard believes the world has to let Donald Trump make mistakes, after his much-condemned press conference with Vladimir Putin.

U.S. lawmakers blasted Trump for not backing the American intelligence community's claim that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election during his press conference with Putin on Monday.

An exchange between President Trump and a reporter Wednesday during a Cabinet meeting has sparked confusion about where Mr. Trump stands on whether Russian Federation is continuing to target the United States.

But Sarah Huckabee Sanders, pressed at the briefing, said Trump was simply saying "no" to the idea of taking questions, not addressing Moscow's current capabilities.

Hours later, the White House stepped in to say Trump's answer wasn't what it appeared.

Clapper told CNN's "New Day" that he and other intelligence officers briefed Trump, who was President-elect at the time, and his team on January 6, 2017. "And in that meeting, we discussed many, many things that were very, very positive for both countries", he said. We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match.

The Republican chairman of the Senate intelligence committee, Richard Burr of SC, said if Trump doubts that Russian Federation would again try to intervene, "He needs to read the intelligence". "Today, the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack".

On Wednesday, Republican Sen.

He restated the US intelligence assessment about Russian meddling and "their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy".

Top Senate Democrat Chuck Schumer said Trump needed to wake up to Russia's efforts to interfere in American elections.

"Obviously he has a very different take on what's occurring", said Rubio, who also sits on the intelligence committee.

There is even more confusion about what Donald Trump believes, or does not believe, about Russian interference in the 2016 USA presidential election.

"So many people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki", Trump tweeted.

Things devolved further when The Associated Press' Jonathan Lemire asked Trump whether he believed Putin or the United States intelligence community on Russia's election interference, whether he would denounce Putin for Russia's actions in 2016, and whether he would warn the Russian leader never to do it again. He added that he thinks he's been tougher on Russian Federation and its president, Vladimir Putin, than any other USA president. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be".

"Trump may well be honest about it, but the fact is that he's behaving like a controlled spy", he said. He told reporters he meant to say, "I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be (Russia)", not "I don't see any reason why it would be".
