Donald Trump backtracks on forming cyber security unit with Russia

It could also cause a backlash among grassroots GOP supporters who have sent successive Republican majorities to Washington on the rationale that they would repeal Obamacare.

Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., a prominent Russia hawk, was asked on CBS's "Face the Nation" whether Russia was really likely to provide any help in combating election interference. Liberal and conservative media pundits in the United States provided extremely contradicting spins to the meeting.

The admission alarmed some politicians, who said it seemed to show Trump trusted Putin's word over that of senior US intelligence officials.

When questioned on U.S. President Donald Trump and his Russian counterpart Putin's face-to-face meeting at the G-20 summit in Hamburg recently, Haley said that Trump wanted to look at Putin "in the eye".

While White House officials considered such rallies to push the health care bill, a White House official told CNN aides to the president moved away from that idea - seeking to put some distance between the president and the increasingly unpopular bill.

We've set a goal to secure 1,000 MW of clean energy resources and double the number of clean energy jobs by 2020. But on Thursday, he appeared to cast doubt again on the conclusion, saying before a major speech in Poland that there could have been others involved and that "nobody really knows for sure". "He is surrounded by enablers that shake their heads and nod their heads at everything he says. We assess that Russian cyber operations will continue to target the United States and its allies to gather intelligence, support Russian decision making, conduct influence operations to support Russian military and political objectives, and prepare the cyber environment for future contingencies". "He vehemently denied it".

Discussions "will be ongoing with various staff levels", and the group will be "out of the State Department and.the national security advisor's office", Tillerson added.

"It's not the dumbest idea I've ever heard, but it's pretty close", said Sen. Indeed, the president declared: "I strongly pressed President Putin twice about Russian meddling in our election".

But then Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov told reporters that Trump accepted Putin 's assurance that Russia didn't interfere. "Might as well just mail our ballots to Moscow", said Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Calif., the ranking member on the House Intelligence Committee.

The U.S. president claimed that he had discussed allegations that Russia interfered with the U.S. election last year, including through hacking.

In a series of tweets today, the US President outlined his thoughts on the G20 talks with the Russian leader which he called a 'great success'. "But he bungled it badly", said Stephen Sestanovich, a Columbia University professor who served as ambassador-at-large for the former Soviet Union in the Clinton administration.

As Facebook and other sites battle against fake news and everyone worries that things they see online simply aren't real, the truth is ever harder to find. Trump, hours after returning from his second foreign trip as president, declined to refute the Russian account of his meeting with Putin, leaving their assertion that he accepted the Russian president's denial of 2016 election meddling unchallenged. It is not even predictable, in the way that most diplomatic relationships are usually more or less predictable, because it is not driven by the geopolitical or economic interests of either Russians or Americans.

Members of Congress in both parties are reacting with alarm to President Trump's declaration that he wants the U.S. and Russia to work together on improving cybersecurity.

Technically Incorrect offers a slightly twisted take on the tech that's taken over our lives. And he had what I think is a disastrous meeting with President Putin. "Now it is time to move forward in working constructively with Russia!" The withdrawal represents an abandonment of pledges to protect our environment and risks undermining the entire accord, which includes nearly every country on earth. Then after bringing Russian interference up in the meeting, he was ambiguous in tweets afterwards as to whether he believed Putin's predictable denials. The question is will the rest of the Republican Party go along with it.
