Donald Trump Sides With Russian President Vladimir Putin Over Us Intelligence

The nation is shocked and in disbelief after Donald Trump seemingly sided with Russia. When asked on Monday at the summit it Helsinski, Finland, if he would support this United States government’s assessment that Russia had interfered with this 2016 US presidential election and if he’d ask Vladimir Putin not to ever do it again, President Donald Trump said, ‘see any reason why’ Russia would be responsible.


Instead, Trump — standing alongsideĀ Russian President Vladimir PutinĀ — touted Putin’s vigorous denial and pivoted to complaining about the Democratic National Committee’s server and missing emails from Hillary Clinton’s personal account.
“I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today,” Trump said during a joint news conference after he spent about two hours in a room alone with Putin, save for a pair of interpreters.
Trump’s statements amounted to an unprecedented refusal by a US president to believe his own intelligence agencies over the word of a foreign adversary and drew swift condemnation from across the partisan divide.
