Trump blames ‘double negative’ for furor over Putin meeting

President Donald Trump's approval rating showed no change after what many saw as a disastrous summit with Russian Federation President Vladimir Putin.

Trump said Wednesday, "There's never been a president as tough on Russian Federation as I have been", citing economic sanctions.

"In a key sentence in my remarks I said the word "would" instead of 'wouldn't, '" Trump said Tuesday.

"I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it a lot of things happened under his watch", Trump told Carlson. My personal view: "the Russians are at [it] again", he wrote.

He made no mention of his having walked back comments that called into question U.S. intelligence findings of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

He did not directly mention Trump, but his comments were clearly a response to the President's heavily criticised performance in Helsinki. "It's true, others do hack into the United States".

Later, White House press secretary Sarah Sanders sought to clarify Trump's comments, saying his "no" meant that he was not taking any questions from reporters.

Donald Trump has joined Vladimir Putin in Helsinki for unilateral talks between Russian Federation and the U.S. on a host of matters.

But the accord did not spell out a timetable for the process or say how it would be carried out. "That must be the intelligence agencies", the president joked.

Zach Britton, another Oriole supposedly on the trading block, worked the ninth for his fourth save, the second in two days. The right-hander walked the game's first three batters and gave up a one-out grand-slam to first baseman Ronald Guzman.

The Republican president claimed his meeting with Putin - who he seemed to warmly embrace, triggering outrage in Washington - could prove "an even greater success" than his one last week with traditional allies NATO, adding that his counterpart had agreed to assist U.S. negotiation efforts with North Korea.

"As successful as North Atlantic Treaty Organisation was, I think this was our most successful visit", Trump said of the Helsinki summit.

But Townsend said the attempt to mend fences may have come too late.

This is an extract from the transcript posted by the White House.

Moments earlier, the usually reserved Senate majority leader, Mitch McConnell, publicly reassured America's allies in Europe following Mr Trump's clashes with them during his trip last week.

"I think he conflates collusion with meddling and the effect on the election".

"They're not saying don't do this or this is the wrong thing to do", Flake said.

"President Trump approaches talks with Russian Federation grounded in realism, but our desire for friendship, cooperation, and peace remain", read another. "The system is blinking", and that "today, the digital infrastructure that serves this country is literally under attack".
