Republicans blast Trump meeting with Putin as 'shameful' and 'sign of weakness'

'An absolute disgrace': Republicans blast Trump for his 'disgusting' press conference with Putin

President Trump accepts Putin's denials of election meddling, prompting lawmaker outrage

U.S. President Donald Trump receives a football from Russian President Vladimir Putin as they hold a joint news conference after their meeting in Helsinki, Finland July 16, 2018.

Trump's embrace of Putin came on the last day of a weeklong European trip in which he berated North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies over their defense spending and undercut British Prime Minister Theresa May in the tabloids.

President Donald Trump lives in a world in which he "had a great meeting with NATO" and "an even better meeting with Vladimir Putin of Russian Federation".

Trump took on his critics via Twitter Tuesday morning, saying he had "a great meeting with North Atlantic Treaty Organisation", and "an even better meeting" with Putin, but saying the "it was not being reported that way, " and that "the Fake News is going insane". The courageous journalist then asked Mr Putin - who is known for silencing the media and suppressing free speech - if he had any compromising material on Donald Trump.

He declined to offer specific criticism, but said: "I think we've all been foolish". "He's given them a pass and is certainly not holding them accountable for what they're doing".

The 54-year-old tweeted that he was wanted on an "Interpol Russian arrest warrant", but police later said he had been released when they realized the "warrant" had expired.

Some political commentators and Democratic critics of Trump called on his key national security aides to quit in the face of the president saying that he had "confidence" in both Putin and the US intelligence community.

Robert Menendez, the top Democrat on the Senate Foreign Relations panel, has floated a resolution similar to Flake's.

A senior intelligence official told CNN Coats was not cleared with the White House to issue the statement.

House Speaker Paul Ryan says there's "no question" that Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 presidential election and continues to try undermine democracy in the United States and around the world.

The Kremlin has denied any state action in the election. In April, that law led the U.S. Treasury to impose major sanctions on Russian officials and oligarchs, in one of Washington's most aggressive moves to punish Moscow. Trump did not criticize Russia's support for Syrian leader Bashar Assad, whom the US has called on to step down.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is standing behind the US intelligence community's conclusion that the Russians interfered in the 2016 elections - despite President Donald Trump's latest comments.

The problem, as Jimmy Kimmel, Jimmy Fallon, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and Trevor Noah see it, is that Trump seems convinced that admitting to Russian interference is admitting to Russian collusion, but that just isn't the case.

Fox News Host Neil Cavuto said of Trump's inability to challenge Putin to never interfere with an election again, "But he didn't [challenge him]..." Trump has long denied the allegations and has used the partly unsubstantiated claims in the document, funded by Democrats, as a cudgel against the wider investigation of Russian interference. In his remarks Monday, he proved himself unwilling to remove the issue from politics or view it as a security threat or a challenge to US democracy.

Sir Bernard told the programme that the Chequers plan was "dead", with opposition from both wings of the Tory party. The new UK Brexit secretary Dominic Raab will meet the EU'S chief negotiator Michel Barnier on Thursday (19 July).

McConnell did not respond when asked if he was disappointed in Trump's remarks. He calls it "Trump derangement syndrome".

Not all Republicans were angry with the president's conduct in Helsinki.

Sen. Chuck Schumer, D-N.Y., the minority leader, says never in the history of the country has an American president supported an adversary the way Trump sided with Putin.

The U.S. leader would not publicly criticize Putin for the Russian annexation of Crimea, chemical attacks on individuals in the United Kingdom, or condemn him for meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.

"When I was in Russian Federation, I was followed everywhere I went and I'm a comedian", he noted.

She accused Trump of not defending America, saying Trump's remarks represent "a sad diminishment of our great nation".
