Melania Trump's 'face falls' after she's introduced to Vladimir Putin

Albright spoke with Woodruff hours after Trump claimed that he misspoke when he said at a Monday news conference with Putin that he didn't see any reason why Russian Federation would meddle in the 2016 presidential election, despite the assessment of multiple USA intelligence agencies and statements from other Trump administration officials that it did.

"I have the strongest respect for our intelligence agencies, headed by my people", Trump said at the previously unscheduled session with a small group of White House reporters as he prepared to meet with some House Republicans about additional tax cuts.

Trump said he accepted the intelligence community's assessment that Russian Federation had meddled in the election, and offered a rambling explanation of his assertion that he could not see "any reason" why Russian Federation would interfere. "There was no collusion at all". First lady Melania Trump was also aboard and was involved in some of the discussions, but not all of them, the people familiar with the matter said.

"I realize there is a need for some clarification", he said. Tuesday, the day after, Trump said he meant to say the word "wouldn't". "I have on numerous occasions noted our intelligence findings that Russians attempted to interfere in our elections".

Mr Putin suggested on Monday, like Mr Trump has done repeatedly, that Mr Mueller's appointment as an independent prosecutor to pursue the investigation lacks legitimacy.

I was quite excited and when I kicked my power was pretty good actually, but it wasn't enough. Van Avermaet said. "But everyone kind of enjoyed it - the first day we could really relax".

Twenty-four hours after saying he did not have faith in his USA intel agencies and instead believed the "very strong and powerful" words of the strongman standing next to him in Helsinki who orchestrated Russian interference in the 2016 election, Trump announced today is Opposite Day.

"I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said.

"I have President Putin, he just said it's not Russia", Trump said.

Ryan said he had not spoken with Trump, who hosted Republican members of Congress to discuss another round of tax cuts.

The meeting is overshadowed by US indictment of 12 Russians last week, who were accused of meddling in the 2016 US Presidential elections.

Tens of thousands also protested in London on Friday against the US president's first official visit to Britain. He also stated in the interview that May's plan would affect trade with the U.S.in a negative way.

He also said that he and Putin had talked about a wide range of issues such as Syria, Iran, Israel, and the reduction of nuclear weapons throughout the world.

Republicans may have been relieved, but they still have questions about that two hour meeting with Putin.

On Tuesday, he corrected that sentence, saying: "The sentence should have been, 'I don't see any reason why it wouldn't be Russia.' Sort of a double negative". "What is going on, what's the big deal?" the president said he wondered, as he faced united backlash from top Republicans, Democrats, and the intelligence community.

"What we're all anxious about coming out of this summit is that Putin is going to feel emboldened", Hampson said.

Democratic leaders immediately called for Trump to cancel the scheduled meeting with the Russian president, but the White House said the summit would go ahead.
