Trump’s ‘Treasonous’ Trip

Is the power of Putin too much for the American president? Here are some highlights from the Helsinki visit.

Submitted by Tyee Staff, 17 Jul 2018

 

After a visit to the U.K. that has been called “comically disastrous,” U.S. President Donald Trump met with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Helsinki on July 16.

There, Trump accepted Putin’s denial of election meddling, which he called “extremely strong and powerful.” Regarding critics who wanted to discredit his election victory, Trump said that he “beat Hillary easily.”

However, on July 17, Trump said he misspoke. He said he meant to say “I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia” and that he accepts the U.S. intelligence community’s conclusion that Russia’s meddling in the 2016 election took place. He added that “It could be other people also. There’s a lot of people out there.”

The top elected Republican, House Speaker Paul Ryan, has said that “Russian is not our ally” and that the United States “must be focused on holding Russia accountable and putting an end to its vile attacks on democracy.”

John Brennan, a former director of the CIA, tweeted the conference as “treasonous.”

You can see some highlights from the Trump-Putin press conference in Helsinki for yourself in the video above, via The Guardian.
