Lights go out during Trump statement at the White House

"Similar moves on cars would be disastrous", Malmstrom said.

"I will say this, I don't see any reason why it would be", he said on Monday in Finland.

Less than a week later, the President's understanding of that evidence has been severely tested, as the White House tries to contain the damage from his widely condemned news conference Monday with Putin.

The EU will retaliate if US President Donald Trump imposes tariffs on automobiles, EU trade commissioner Cecilia Malmstrom has warned.

Braun's statement avoided any challenge to the USA intelligence community conclusion that Russian Federation interfered in the election.

Recall, July 16, in Helsinki behind closed doors had an official meeting Donald trump and Vladimir Putin.

"Big benefits and exciting future for North Korea at end of process!" he wrote.

Almost 98 percent of the cars and trucks that would be hit by the tariffs are imported from USA allies: the EU, Canada, Japan, Mexico and South Korea, Posen added.

United States President Donald Trump has mocked that the USA intelligence agencies are responsible for a temporary power cut while he made a White House statement reaffirming his support for the same.

But he added: "Could be other people also. Lots of other people out there".

He also managed to clarify his controversial statement in the press conference with Putin. Trump says that what he meant to say was he didn't see any reason why it "wouldn't" be Russian Federation who meddled in our election.

As the lights were quickly switched on, Trump asked if everyone was OK.

Americans, however, were not in the mood of commenting on whatever discussion Trump had with Putin.

"Russia is trying to undermine democracy itself". Mark Warner, D-Va., top Democrat on the Senate Intelligence Committee. "In a key sentence in my remarks I said the word "would" instead of "wouldn't". The US delegation included Secretary of State Michael Pompeo and National Security Adviser John Bolton.

She called for Trump's interpreter for the Putin meeting to testify before Congress. Following a diplomatic summit in Helsinki, Trump faced harsh criticism after a press conference with Putin where he would not say whether he believed Russian Federation meddled with the 2016 presidential election. "And you've got to remember, these interpreters sometimes are not policy people". During a visit to Europe last week, Trump time and again rebuked the European Union for being an unfair trading partner and called the bloc a "foe".

"The story here goes beyond economic rationalities", he said.

On Twitter, Trump said he and Putin can work together on many issues. "I think even President George W. Bush's meeting, where he had that famous quote about looking into Putin's eyes and seeing into his soul - this summit dwarfs that by a factor of a thousand".

Trump tweeted "While the North Atlantic Treaty Organisation meeting in Brussels was an acknowledged triumph, with billions of dollars more being put up by member countries at a faster pace, the meeting with Russian Federation may prove to be, in the long run, an even greater success".

While Trump wanted his meeting with Putin to look like Reagan-Gorbachev in 1986, his summit with Putin came across showing that he had some debt to pay to Putin.
