Even before his presidency, Politico reported, Trump was seen as a successful businessman - with some of his books even being translated into Vietnamese and sold to audiences in the country. No less an authority than Mike Pompeo, the President Trump-appointed Central Intelligence Agency director, has said there is certainty about Russian meddling. The notorious 45th US President confined himself to a formal handshake with Putin at the photoshoot ceremony, but was evasive and quickly retired.

Later, after the O.J. Simpson trial, Trump argued: "I really believe that when he says he wants to find the real killer, he means it".

Robert Mueller has a team investigating alleged meddling with the USA election previous year. "It's something that I think that Mr. Trump should be ashamed of", Brennan said on CNN.

A meeting with Donald Trump that dovetailed with Trump's Asia tour would likely have been a benefit for Russian Federation in its attempts to maneuver through the twists of the "Korean knot".

Or is it just that he can't see well through the haze of his own miasma of self-regard, stunning ignorance about almost everything important to our democracy, and a need to undermine and destroy every vestige of policy-making by his predecessor, Barack Obama, no matter what the cost to our nation's norms and governance?

"He said he didn't meddle", Trump said.

TSU Football Player Expelled After Violent Incident During Game
Lee was immediately booted from the sidelines by head coach Rod Reed , and as of yesterday is no longer enrolled at TSU. Tennessee State has one regular-season game remaining in the 2017 campaign against Jacksonville State on Thursday night.

But Putin said he did not do what they said he did. Trump had much to say Saturday about last week's smiles and handshakes with Putin and repeated denials of interference in the USA from the former KGB spymaster.

A top US Congressman says he has proof Donald Trump is lying about Russia's involvement with the 2016 presidential elections.

"As to whether I believe it, I'm with our agencies", Trump said.

'I can tell you that the president of the United States is LYING.

In fact, Trump has stated that one of the ways to obtain Russia's help in solving the North Korea crisis is by getting China to support USA efforts and initiatives.

Perhaps this is why Trump revised his comments when asked to "once and for all, definitively" share his views on Russian meddling. 'I believe he believes what he believes and he believes that I believe what I believe even though he believes what I don't believe. And I believe - I really believe that when he tells me that, he means it. Donald spoke with his chief governess and reported back to the children: "She is very, very strong in the fact that she didn't put gifts under the tree. And I feel that having Russian Federation in a friendly posture, as opposed to always fighting with them, is an asset to the world and an asset to our country, not a liability". And in the end, even if Russian Federation did meddle in our elections, maybe we ought not punish them for having done so since they've been heavily sanctioned in a way that prevents a friendly posture. "The President is not the chairman of the board of elections in this country", Kellyanne Conway remarked to Martha Raddatz on ABC News' This Week. On Face the Nation on CBS, panelist Jeffrey Goldberg of the Atlantic told host John Dickerson that Trump, "in his heart", seems to believe that the Russian Federation controversy is manufactured by his enemies. Although the American leader remains calm outwardly, sources in the White House say that he is anxious about this investigation.
