On Tuesday afternoon, Trump addressed Monday's shocking Helsinki summit where the commander-in-chief sided with Vladimir Putin over the entire USA intelligence community when it came to the issue of Russian interference in the 2016 election.
During his news conference along side Putin in Helsinki on Monday, Trump stated he didn't see "any reason" why Russian Federation was responsible for hacking the 2016 election, as USA intelligence agencies have found.
Trump added that he had "full faith and support" in USA intelligence agencies and as he repeated the remark, the lights in the room were suddenly dimmed off. "Whoops, they just turned off the lights".
He continued, "Let me be very clear in saying I accept our intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 presidential race took place".
Senior administration officials were quoted as saying that they wanted Trump to say clearly that he believes US intelligence over Putin and that there will not be any effort by the U.S.to cooperate with Russian Federation on the ongoing probe of Moscow's alleged meddling in USA elections.
Chris Evans was reacting to Mr Trump's decision to defend Russian Federation over allegations it interfered in the USA election that made Donald Trump president - contradicting what his own intelligence agencies say.
The White House went underground on Tuesday as Trump was skewered across the networks, with the exception of Paul, who said the "president did a good thing by meeting with Putin" and called it as a 'mistake for people to try to turn this into a partisan escapade'.
Trump sparked widespread condemnation after insisting that "President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial" that Russian Federation had hacked the 2016 presidential election. "A lot of people out there". "Sort of a double negative".
