Rubio: Trump Can't Reach for 'Win-Win' When Putin Wants 'Zero-Sum'

Vladimir Putin Rubio: Trump Can't Reach for 'Win-Win' When Putin Wants 'Zero-Sum'

Standing alongside the Kremlin boss at a joint news conference, Trump acknowledged that his intelligence chiefs believe Russian Federation hacked and leaked Democrats' emails containing politically damaging information about his rival Hillary Clinton in 2016.

"We shouldn't just let yesterday be swept under the rug, we have to explain American values and have to explain why they're in conflict with Putin's" Sasse said, suggesting that the USA should respond by ramping up further sanctions on the Russian government and Putin's "thugs".

"To me, it's the only question that interests the American press", reporter Yegor Kolyvanov said on NTV, a Kremlin-controlled national TV channel.

Meanwhile, Putin, in an interview with Fox News, appeared to ratify the widespread impression that he was the big victor from the summit with Trump. "I had to repeat what I've said before, that the Russian state has never interfered and has no intention to interfere". And Trump continues to reject Mueller's probe as a "witch hunt", despite the indictments of Russian hackers and intelligence officials.

This time, though, he was on foreign soil, standing next to Vladimir Putin, the very man whose government is accused of interfering in the 2016 election to favor Trump.

"Maybe we've just knocked down that wedge, but it has driven a wedge and President Putin said that", Mr Trump told Fox News.

Second, those within the ruling class and the state apparatus opposing Trump view any attempt to reach a temporary accommodation with Moscow as a risky diversion from confrontation with a country they regard as a major impediment to USA strategic interests.

As for Trump's performance at the summit, for which he is being panned by his own party, Limbaugh said he has not had the time to soak it all in yet to offer up an opinion.

But after his appalling performance in Helsinki at what CNN's John King aptly called the "surrender summit", questions about Trump's loyalty to the American people will only intensify. "Dan Coats [the director of national intelligence] came to me and some others, they said they think it's Russian Federation".

Meanwhile, John Brennan, CIA director between 2013 and 2017, said Mr Trump's remarks were "nothing short of treasonous". The fearless journalist then asked Mr Putin - who is known for silencing the media and suppressing free speech - if he had any compromising material on Donald Trump.

When asked by CNBC Monday if he was concerned by the pattern of suspicious deaths in the United Kingdom which some say are proof Britain has become a killing ground for the state-sanctioned elimination of enemies of the Russian government, Browder said that he is taking precautions but that there is nothing he can really do to stop a "government-sponsored terrorist attack".

They said they think it's Russian Federation.

The two leaders appeared relaxed at the Helsinki news conference, smiling on occasion, in contrast to their sombre demeanour at the start of the day.

Some wanted Trump to emulate Nikita Khrushchev, who blew up the Paris summit in May 1960 over a failed US intelligence operation - the U-2 spy plane shot down over the Urals just weeks earlier.

Democratic California Representative Jimmy Gomez charged: "To side with Putin over USA intelligence is disgusting; to fail to defend the USA is on the verge of treason".

A post-NATO trip to Britain, supposedly America's partner in a "special relationship", was riddled with controversy as well.

So President Trump's comments have angered a lot of Americans.

Former Speaker of the House Newt Gingrich tweeted that this was the "most serious mistake of his presidency".

The Avenger called it a "disgrace". "He feels strongly about the issue and has an interesting idea", Trump told a joint news conference with Putin in the Finnish capital Helsinki.

He added: "No prior president has ever abased himself more abjectly before a tyrant". He says measures must be taken to prevent future meddling and to hold Russian Federation accountable.

At Trump's joint press conference with Putin in Helsinki today, Trump was asked if he holds Russian Federation "accountable for anything in particular".

"There is no moral equivalence between the United States and Russian Federation, which remains hostile to our most basic values and ideals", he said. "The United States must be focused on holding Russian Federation accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy".

Toomey said in the statement that if Putin objects to the indicted hackers being brought to justice, the United States should impose new sanctions on Russian Federation.
