"The former Governor of California said: "'President Trump, I just saw your press conference with Putin and it was embarrassing.

The narrative being pushed by the White House runs counter to Trump's own comments just yesterday saying he doesn't "see any reason why" Russian Federation would be interfering in the election, and called Putin's denial of meddling "strong and powerful".
