President Trump created controversy of the highest offense to his own Country when he sided with Russia during a briefing.
He spoke to reporters who questioned if he believed that Russia was involved in interfering with the U.S. 2016 Elections.
He stood next to President Vladimir Putin and sided with him in the matter. Putin claimed that they didn’t interfere and Trump seemed to accept that response.
Trump then changed his tune and claimed he made a mistake when he responded to reporters.
But could it have been the pressure Trump felt from a Nation that wondered why he would deny his own Intelligence agency?
Why did the President speak in such a manner and why would he change his tone now?
In an effort to sort out what he said during his news briefing with Putin Trump tried to defend what he said recently.
“I said the word ‘would’ instead of ‘wouldn’t,'” Trump told reporters at the White House. “The sentence should have been, ‘I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia.'”
Just over a day ago Trump had sided with Putin but made a different claim now he was back on home soil.
When asked about Russian collusion in 2016 Trump responded “I don’t see any reason why it would be.”
Could there have been a fear of Putin or was Trump simply trying to gain a friend in the Russian President?
Trump’s somewhat obsession with Putin caused many to wonder what the President could be thinking.
“This has to be recognised for what it is, which is simply an effort to clean up the mess he made yesterday, which is beyond the capacity of any short statement to repair,” said Adam Schiff.
It was clear that many people believed the President could be out of his league when it came to dealing with International matters.
On many occasions Trump backpedalled on many statements he made. He either said something different altogether or had to clarify what he said or meant.
“He made a horrible statement, tried to back off, but couldn’t even bring himself to back off,” Chuck Schumer said on the Senate floor. “It shows the weakness of President Trump that he is afraid to confront Mr. Putin directly.”
Trump claimed he wasn’t “pro-Russia” and lashed out at CIA Director John Brennan who commented on his performance.
“Not only were Trump’s comments imbecilic, he is wholly in the pocket of Putin,” tweeted Brennan. “Republican Patriots: Where are you???”
“I think Brennan is a very bad guy and if you look at it a lot of things happened under his watch,” Trump said. “I think he’s a very bad person.”
The President seemed in his interview to be trying to direct blame to others despite his statements while standing with Putin.
But the big question now on many minds could be what does Putin have on Trump?
If he does, what would that be?
