'Very concerned' Russian Federation will try to meddle in midterms

'Very concerned' Russian Federation will try to meddle in midterms

Wresting control of a chamber would allow them to derail or stall much of Mr Trump's policy agenda, while ushering in more aggressive congressional oversight and investigation of the US President's administration. The summit with Putin, combined with Trump's aggression toward North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies and the ongoing investigation into whether his campaign colluded with Russian interference in the 2016 election, have given Trump his lowest approval ratings since February. Voters called it a success for Russian Federation by 73 to 8 per cent.

McConnell declined to back up a tweet Trump sent Tuesday suggesting any potential Russian interference in the fall midterm elections would be created to favour Democrats.

Many Republicans joined Democrats in criticizing Trump's summit performance. Will Hurd's (R-TX) op-ed in the New York Times Thursday asserting that Trump had "actively participated in a Russian disinformation campaign that legitimized Russian denial [of election interference] and weakened the credibility of the United States to both our friends and foes overseas". "We haven't seen a lot of movement".

Still, the fun the internet has been having with these tweets helps to take some of our fear away. His reasoning? "They definitely don't want Trump". It's even possible they fear that Trump will try to make up for his toadying behavior at the first event by going all Barbarossa on their leader and ruining their budding alliance with the U.S.

Chris Evans is pointing out the insanity in Trump's insinuation that Russian Federation would help Democrats win.

USA and coalition commanders overseeing anti-Islamic State operations in Syria remain committed to military deconfliction with Russian forces in the country, deployed to support government troops loyal to Syrian President Bashar Assad, Mr. Mattis said during the briefing at the Hoover Institution at Stanford University in Palo Alto. Trump has since clarified his remarks to side with the intelligence community.

Evans wasn't the only celebrity to chime in. Surveys in this country have shown that Trump's popularity has fallen by about 35%. The villain not rooting for the bad guy? Self-identified "moderates" are particularly negative, with 64 percent disapproving of how Trump handled the meeting, almost as high as 73 percent among liberals.

"They support the president on his position on the issues, as we saw, and actually have a pretty pragmatic view about how we should handle Russia", Nesho said. Trump is calculating in his lashing-out fashion and he's protecting himself from the Russian Federation investigation and from blowback if the Democrats sweep to victory.
