This is a contradiction to all the information that our intelligence agencies have amassed.
"As to whether I believe it, I'm with our agencies", Trump said.
Such a photograph would have been many times more valuable journalistically than the awkward souvenir photos where the leaders strain to link arms in an obligatory show of solidarity. When asked whether he raised the matter of Russia's interference in the 2016 US elections, the president responded: "Every time he sees me, he says, 'I didn't do that.' And I believe, I really believe, that when he tells me that, he means it". "He did not do what they were saying he did".
Yes but do you believe him? a reporter asked.
The following dossier on Donald Trump's early years was given to me Monday by a man on a park bench in Lafayette Square. Mr. Trump is essentially suggesting the US can't get Mr. Putin's help on North Korea or Syria if it insists on Russian accountability.
"They're political hacks. So you look at it, and then you have Brennan, you have Clapper and you have (James) Comey". Those are the big events. It makes absolutely no sense that Trump would believe Putin and doubt the CIA, FBI, and United States Intelligence Community.

In a speech to South Korean legislators, Trump threw out a strong warning to North Korea: "We will not allow American cities to be threatened with destruction".
Of course, Obama also essentially did anything as North Korea advanced their nuclear ambitions.
Contrast this with the rhetoric Trump had toward China during the campaign, when he said, "We can't continue to allow China to rape our country and that's what they're doing". And because of the lack of a relationship that we have with Russian Federation because of this artificial thing that's happening with this Democratic-inspired thing, we could really be helped a lot, tremendously, with Russian Federation having to do with North Korea. This isn't baby stuff.
President Donald Trump's sweeping plan to restore American primacy by replacing "unfair" multilateral trade agreements with a series of bilateral deals is meeting a grim reality: foreign trading partners are not taking the bait. And if Russian Federation helped us, in addition to China, that problem would go away a lot faster.
Director of National Intelligence Dan Coats has said there is no dispute in the intelligence community about Russia's meddling in the election. Did you ask him a question?
Never forget that the ASEAN-Way Handshake is not easy to pull off. "And to try paint it in any other way is, I think, astounding, and, in fact, poses a peril to this country".
