Trump says he 'gave up nothing' at Putin meeting

Press Secretary Sarah Sanders sought to clarify the president's tweet Monday morning by arguing that the president wasn't expressing doubt on the intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation meddled but was instead "referring to the claim that his campaign had anything to do with it". On both questions, those who say they "strongly disapprove" of Trump's performance outnumber those who say they "strongly approve" by better than 2 to 1.

But the president appeared to again go full circle on the issue in a tweet Sunday night in which he questioned why Obama didn't take action against Russian Federation in 2016 if the USA government was aware of it and calling it out as a "big hoax".

Among them were Ukraine, Syria, Russian meddling in the US elections, and the nations' nuclear arsenal, according to Trump.

US President Donald Trump lashes out at the media over coverage of his summit with Vladimir Putin.

"The disconnect can not continue", Gowdy said on Fox News on Sunday (Monday NZT).

During his Twitter rampage, Trump also claimed that the wiretap order was granted on false and misleading information.

That's not what the documents show. The FBI said it suspected Page had been "collaborating and conspiring with the Russian government".

After the summit was over, Trump said that he told Putin that the meddling had to stop.

Former House speaker and Trump adviser Newt Gingrich characterized the Helsinki meeting as "the most serious mistake of his presidency".

Page denies being a foreign agent.

On this question, independents lean more negatively than positively, with 22 percent saying America's leadership has gotten stronger under Trump, 47 percent weaker and about one-quarter saying it has stayed the same.

President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin meet in Helsinki this week, and some feel the American President took some hits. "They should drop the discredited Mueller Witch Hunt now!"

Legal analysts noted that intelligence agents had good reason to suspect Page had a relationship with Russia, and that the Federal Bureau of Investigation found much of the dossier to be credible; they noted that four judges, all appointed by Republicans, signed off on the Page warrant and that Mueller recently obtained indictments on a dozen Russian intelligence officials on charges of election sabotage. But Trump cast doubt once again in a Sunday tweet, diminishing at least the significance, if not the existence, of the interference and the US investigation into Russia's actions.
