In a stunning about-face the US President has announced he didn't mean to say what he said during a media conference in Helsinki with the Russian leader Vladimir Putin.
"After the carnage of the last few days, we've seen plenty of punters Putin money on Trump's impeachment again - although I'm sure they'll soon get a message, in Russian, urging them to stop", a Paddy Power spokesman told Yahoo News.
Trump added Tuesday: 'I came back, and thought, what's the big deal, I got a transcript, reviewed a clip of an answer that I gave and I realized there is a need for some clarification.
He added that "the meeting with Russian Federation may prove to be, in the long run, an even greater success".
Trump supporters like Fox News host Laura Ingraham, moderates like Miami Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen and Senate leaders like Mitch McConnell have all expressed support for Rubio's bill, signaling that Congress could pass substantive legislation that would swiftly punish Moscow if USA intelligence determines that the Kremlin tries to meddle in future US elections.
The US president added: "I accept our intelligence community's conclusion that Russia's meddling in the 2016 election took place".
He then veered from his script to hedge on who was responsible for the election interference: "It could be other people also". "I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said.
Early Wednesday, Trump was back to touting a meeting that he said would lead to "big results" and "many positive things" - including Russia's help with his efforts to rid North Korea of nuclear weapons.
"Given the public concessions" Trump made to Putin "by siding against the U.S. intelligence community, law enforcement, and our military officials about Russia's attack on our democracy, Congress and the American public deserve to know the details of their private conversation", Pascrell wrote. "We believe that the threat still exists" and are taking actions to block Russian cyberattacks, Sanders said.
While Congress has approved, nearly unanimously and with votes from both Republicans and Democrats, new sets of sanctions on Russia, Trump has tried to veto them, and when the vote came veto-proof to his desk, Trump chose not to impose any of the sanctions that Congress had recommended. I will say this: "I don't see any reason why it would be", Trump said.
Justice Department officials were mindful of Trump's upcoming meeting with Putin so Rosenstein briefed Trump on July 9 about the forthcoming indictment before the President left on his European trip, the sources said. A lot of people out there. Schumer questioned whether Putin has compromising material on Trump.
Mr Trump said he misspoke at the press conference with Mr Putin.
Critics say, words matter - and they are right.
Some lawmakers said they would seek remedies against Russian Federation in Congress.
Some Republicans have come to Trump's defense.
The US President had also mentioned that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 campaign was "a disaster for our country", while also saying that it had negatively impacted US-Russia relations.
Meanwhile, the chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Tennessee Republican Bob Corker, told reporters he expects Secretary of State Mike Pompeo to testify on Russian Federation as early as next week.
