The White house reacted to the statement of Kim Jong-UN and comments about the conversation with Putin
After a week of carefully calibrated reports on his trip to Asia, US President Donald trump once again brought the thunder on Twitter, directed at his critics in the U.S. and abroad.
In three tweets sent from Vietnam on Sunday morning, trump defended his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin and criticized the North Korean leader, Kim Jong-UN.
During the flight to Hanoi on Saturday evening the President said that Putin once again rejected accusations of Russian interference in the U.S. presidential election in 2016. He added that he believes that the hoopla raised by the Democrats.
Trump statements provoked sharp criticism in Washington, where Congressman Adam Schiff, the most senior Democrat in the house of representatives Committee on intelligence, said that the President understands the truth about the Russian intervention, but just decided to “make” the denial of Putin, and not “reliable evidence of our own intelligence agencies.”
Senator John McCain, a Republican, often critical of the President, said that “to put the words of the KGB Colonel said us intelligence does not correspond to the principle of “America first””.
“Vladimir Putin is not guided by the interests of America. To believe otherwise is not only naive, but also endangered our national security,” added McCain.
In the first of three tweets posted on Sunday morning, trump lashed out at their critics, saying: “When all the haters and fools realize that good relations with Russia is good, not evil. There are constant political games, and it’s bad for our country. I want to solve problems with North Korea, Syria, Ukraine, terrorism, and Russia can provide a big help!”
