Scaramucci Urges Trump to ‘Reverse Course’ After Putin Meeting

It wasn't just what Trump said in Helsinki, it was how he acted - like a supplicant to Putin - and that's the most troubling part.

Republican Senator Ben Sasse of Nebraska called it "bizarre" and "flat-out wrong" for Trump to suggest that both the U.S. and Russian Federation are to blame for the deteriorated state of the two countries' relationship. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be", Mr Trump said.

I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said.

In the hours after Trump's disastrous summit with Putin, White House officials gave the Washington Post conflicting accounts of Trump's take on the indictments.

After his walkback, Mr Trump said his administration would "move aggressively" to repel efforts to interfere in American elections.

"It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected, immediately", he tweeted as Trump headed home. "That will go to my son Barron, we have no question in fact, Melania, here you go", the president said, before bouncing the ball to his wife and US First Lady sat in the front row.

British-American investor and rights activist William Browder says U.S. President Donald Trump may have made a deal with Russian President Vladimir Putin during their summit to help Russian law enforcement pursue him.

The scene nearly instantly drew condemnation as it played out on television screens.

However, Mr Trump found support from Republican Senator Rand Paul, who blamed "Trump derangement syndrome" for the criticism - prompting a supportive tweet from the president himself. "What's the big deal?"

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer said Mr Trump was trying to "squirm away" from his comments alongside Mr Putin. "It's 24 hours too late, and in the wrong place", Schumer said.

Shocking footage has surfaced of a Las Vegas cop shooting through his own windshield in a blazing gun battle and high-speed chase. The 2 suspects were wanted for the murder of a 25-year-old who died in the hospital from multiple gunshot wounds to the chest.

Former president Barack Obama appeared to allude to his successor in a speech in South Africa on Tuesday, blasting "strongman politics", without naming Trump. And while he reiterated that he thought special counsel Robert Mueller III should be allowed to finish his probe, Ryan did not promise to let up on Republican attempts to undermine the investigation.

US President Donald Trump has been forced to backtrack after a media storm following his seeming defence of Russian Federation over claims of meddling in his country's presidential elections in 2016.

Barry Bennett, a senior advisor to the Trump 2016 campaign, insisted, "I don't think he's going to suffer any damage".

Baker likes reacting to Trump about as much as he likes a root canal, but this time realized he had to respond, especially with Republicans all over the country joining in panning the president.

"Oops, they just turned off the light", Trump joked.

On Monday the United States and Russian presidents held almost two hours of one-on-one talks without their advisers in the Finnish capital Helsinki.

"I'm not here to critique anyone else", McConnell added.

Meanwhile, Republican Sen. Marco Rubio said, "it's what I wish he would have said initially, and I'm glad he said it now". He made no commitment to bringing the measure up, however. "I'm disappointed as well by the stunning silence of some of my colleagues on the other side of the aisle in response to it".

Former House speaker and longtime Trump ally Newt Gingrich put it bluntly.

And on Tuesday evening, Trump was feisty on Twitter again as he defended his meeting with Putin and took aim at one of his favorite targets.
