“The President didn’t address the supposed slip-up in two back-to-back TV interviews directly following the conference, and the White House failed to mention it in a statement issued Tuesday morning that praised the meeting with the Russian leader as “bold American diplomacy.”
Dan Coats, the Director of National Intelligence, issued a statement after Trump’s Helsinki appearance affirming the intelligence community has been “clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election.”
Trump tried to extend an olive branch to the American spy agencies on Tuesday.
“I accept our intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election took place,” Trump said — at which point the lights in the room bizarrely went out for at least two seconds. “That was strange. But that’s OK,” Trump said as the lights flickered back on.
