Mr Trump again repeated the phrase that "no President has been tougher on Russian Federation than [me]", and that "they [Russia] definitely don't want Trump!"

My Republican colleagues - once rightfully critical of President Obama's engagement strategy with Russian leader Vladimir Putin - have to end their willful ignorance of the damage Trump is doing both domestically and internationally.

Press secretary Sarah Sanders later explained that the President was saying "no", he was not taking any questions, not that he felt Russian Federation was no longer targeting USA elections.

Gowdy didn't answer directly, but said Trump had access to more evidence than anyone and specifically mentioned Trump's access to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, FBI Director Christopher Wray, Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats, and United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, all of whom Trump nominated for those roles.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-South Carolina, is urging President Trump to safeguard the US election process ahead of the 2018 midterm elections, telling the president to "lead this nation to make sure the 2018 election is protected".

A 74 percent majority of Republicans say American leadership has "gotten stronger" under Trump, up from 53 percent last November and 61 percent in July 2017.

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell speaks to reporters at the Capitol as fallout continued over U.S. President Donald Trump's Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Washington U.S

The remarks and Trump's overall performance - both at the Helsinki meeting with Putin and during the two-day North Atlantic Treaty Organisation summit in Brussels the previous week - stunned diplomatic, security and intelligence experts in the us and around the world. "Because he talked about bringing the US-Russia relationship back to normal", Putin said when asked whether he had wanted Trump to win the 2016 election. Trump's comments followed a speech by Pompeo in which he stopped just short of advocating regime change and reiterated the administration's determination to impose sanctions on countries, including US allies, that don't significantly cut their imports of Iranian oil.

Many Republicans joined Democrats in criticizing Trump's summit performance. At a press conference in Helsinki last week, President Putin told the world that he wanted Trump to win, saying, "Yes, I did, because he was the one who wanted to normalize relations with Russian Federation".

"In short, nobody is expecting anything good to happen".

"The first détente in the hybrid war between Russian Federation and the West was. nipped in the bud by Trump's behavior and the vehemence of his domestic critics".

"The Russians better quit messing around in our elections", McConnell told reporters, adding that he was open to legislation to put pressure on Moscow. "So be it", Trenin wrote in an article published on the center's website after the summit. But perhaps the more interesting aspect of the poll, conducted between July 18 and 23, is the negative feedback on the meeting itself and the U.S. president's handling of Russian Federation.
