President Trump pushed back against the uproar over his deferential treatment of Russian President Vladimir Putin at their summit in Helsinki, Finland, which drew fire from his own Republican lawmakers for disregarding USA intelligence agencies finding that Moscow interfered in the 2016 election. Special counsel Robert Mueller is investigating any potential collusion between Trump campaign associates and the Kremlin. "Sure, on the one hand, Russian Federation messed with the U.S. by meddling in the elections, but on the other hand, America held elections, so they were asking for it".
Mitt Romney, former Republican presidential nominee, said Trump had acted against America's democratic principles.
According to Schumer there is only one possible explanation: "the possibility that President Putin holds damaging information over President Trump".
Twenty-four hours after saying he did not have faith in his USA intel agencies and instead believed the "very strong and powerful" words of the strongman standing next to him in Helsinki who orchestrated Russian interference in the 2016 election, Trump announced today is Opposite Day.
One of the topics was Russia's alleged meddling in the United States presidential election in 2016, Putin said, and reiterated that Russian Federation never intervened and would never interfere.
Mr Trump said US-Russia relations had "never been worse" than before they met, but that had now changed.
"There is no question that Russian Federation interfered in our election and continues attempts to undermine democracy here and around the world".

"A moral equivalence between the United States and Russian Federation not only defies reason and history, it undermines our national integrity and impairs our global credibility". "In many ways he widened the gap between those who say they don't feel he has the credibility and capability to follow through on U.S. foreign policy", he said.
But several Republicans who do not typically buck the President raised concerns, shocked by Monday's performance.
"It is the most serious mistake of his presidency and must be corrected - immediately", he tweeted as Trump headed home.
President Trump's summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin received mostly negative reviews from Arizona representatives.
If there was a bright side, it's this: It might be the only way for some Americans to understand just how alarmed they should be about their president's perspective on Russian Federation. Instead, he denounced the "stupidity" of his own country's policy, especially the decision to investigate election interference following the findings of USA intelligence agencies.
Tennessee Senator Bob Corker said Trump effectively gave Putin "a public approval by the greatest nation on Earth".
Republicans have been hesitant to fully confront the President, who remains popular among GOP voters back home. "They should not expect, however, to be misrepresented and abandoned by the President of the United States".
