Gowdy: Trump missed 'good opportunity' to confront Putin

Roe is

Roe is "proud" of Trump's response to Russia

Rice said it was an "historic mistake" to allow Trump - or any USA president - to sit down with Putin without note-takers or aides present in the room.

Many Americans were aghast that Trump, who has an insulting nickname for almost every one of his political opponents, did not confront Putin over Moscow's interference in the 2016 USA elections, and even cast doubt on the findings of his own intelligence agencies. They argued that she has "ties to the Russian oligarchy" and knows wealthy men who could be in a position to offer her "safe harbour" if she chose to flee the US.

"These proposals include a high-level working group with business leaders from both countries, convening an expert council of political scientists, diplomats, former diplomats and former military officials from the United States and from Russia; and that the U.S. and Russian national security councils will meet to discuss follow-up meetings".

College graduates had a much sharper negative reaction to Putin's summit than those without college degrees - college grads are 18 points more likely to disapprove of Trump's summit performance (62 percent vs. 44 percent). He said that he believes Trump has entered into a secret deal with Putin, and elaborated on his thought process.

The Post-ABC poll, conducted Wednesday through Friday, finds that overall, 33 percent of Americans approve of Trump's handling of his meeting with Putin, while 50 percent disapprove.

On the question of Russia's interference in the 2016 election, President Trump appears to have a blind spot he simply can not overcome. Gowdy made his remarks during an interview on television's "Fox News Sunday". "I have a different view on this issue than the president and the White House", Rubio said. "I think the Russians elected a former KGB agent and he spends all of his time and their resources squandering it on penny ante spy tactics". A slightly larger 56 percent disapprove of Trump expressing doubts about US intelligence agencies' conclusion that Russian Federation tried to influence the outcome of the 2016 election. He termed evidence of those efforts "overwhelming" and said Trump "needs to say that and act like it".

However, even as she encouraged voter turnout, as WNYC's Alec Hamilton reports, "Clinton expressed concerns about the security of that November midterm election, saying that the country lacks the infrastructure and leadership to safeguard against further cyberattacks".

"Do not meet with this guy from a position of weakness", said Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee. He just said it's not Russian Federation.

"You must come prepared", Rice said.

It is unclear if Nikolaev also attended any official inaugural events, but he was seen at Trump's DC hotel, which served as hub of inauguration celebrations. Among Democrats, 78 percent disapprove of what Trump said about US intelligence findings, as do 59 percent of independents. "That's pretty tough", Democratic Senator Chris Coons said in a hallway interview late last week with Reuters. A sizable 18 percent have no opinion.
