'Utterly ridiculous': Putin denies United States election meddling in tense interview

U.S. President Donald Trump speaks with Russian President Vladimir Putin during a press conference after their meeting at the Presidential Palace in Helsinki Finland Monday

"The president is putting himself over our country", Schumer said, adding Trump should have taken the 12 indictments of Russian intelligence officers to the summit and "demanded justice".

In a lengthy statement, he called the summit, which took place between the Trump and Putin at Finland's presidential palace Monday in Helsinki, a "tragic mistake" - and said that dismissing the news conference that followed as a "pathetic rout" of a political novice was too generous.

"Any meaningful improvement in our relationship with Russian Federation must be exclusively dependent on whether Putin's government starts to behave as a good faith actor on the world stage", Tillis said in a statement.

"Russia is an authoritarian regime that has attacked our democracy and continues to undermine the security of the United States and our allies", her statement said. "I didn't know the president; there was nobody to collude with", Trump continued in a long answer, referring to the probe into the suspicions of election interference by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. This is not normal.

Corker's comments to reporters on Capitol Hill came after the Trump-Putin meeting in Helsinki, Finland, where Trump said he did not "see any reason why" Russian Federation would have been behind attempts to interfere in the 2016 election - a break from the conclusions of the U.S. intelligence community and his own top national security advisers.

Trump on his intelligence officials: "They said they think it's Russian Federation.

The president's statements today in Helsinki demonstrate his continued refusal to accept the unanimous conclusions of USA intelligence leaders and the bipartisan findings of the Senate Intelligence Committee", Collins said in a statement. It's quite another to accept a self-interested denial from Putin at face value. "The President's failure to hold Russian Federation accountable is an global embarrassment", Rep. Alma Adams of Charlotte wrote in a tweet.

Retiring Sen. Jeff Flake, R-Ariz., called it "shameful".

A lot of people are outraged, and it looks like Anderson Cooper not only is one of them but is also not afraid to say it.

Trump had congratulated his opposite number on Russia's successful hosting of the competition, which came to a climax on Sunday a day before the Helsinki summit.

Trump's statements at Monday's news conference prompted some Democrats to publicly speculate about the reasons behind his deference to Putin.

At the news conference, Trump cast doubt on the findings of American intelligence agencies and refused to blame Putin for meddling in the 2016 election.

'One of the most disgraceful performances by a president in memory'.

"There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russian Federation, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals", he said.

Last week, the indictment of 12 Russian military officers in the hacking and leaking of Democratic party emails shed further light on Russian cyberattacks against the United States and attempts to sow discord among the American electorate. Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich, a Trump ally whose wife serves as Trump's ambassador to the Vatican, called Trump's stance "the most serious mistake of his presidency."

"The president is doing grave harm to the standing of these United States while kowtowing to".

Trump's reference to his North Atlantic Treaty Organisation performance carried an edge, too, since the barrage of criticism and insults he delivered there was not generally well-received.

President Trump ultimately validated Putin at the expense of American intelligence by giving credence to Putin's claim to have not interfered in our elections.

"Donald Trump's press conference performance in Helsinki rises to & exceeds the threshold of 'high crimes & misdemeanors.' It was nothing short of treasonous".
