"To me, it was the weakest performance by an American president ever", the Democratic senator from Virginia said in an interview with CNBC's " Squawk Box". "It makes us less safe", Biden said of Trump's remarks.

Trump made no mention of his having walked back comments that called into question USA intelligence findings of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.

On Tuesday, however, Trump backtracked and claimed that he had misspoken - that he had, in fact, meant to say that he did believe that Russian Federation had interfered in the election.

Coats' Friday comments came hours after the Justice Department indicted a dozen Russian military intelligence officers for attempting to undermine the 2016 election in part by hacking into the Democratic National Committee.

Mr Trump had sought to calm the storm over what critics said was his failure to hold Mr Putin accountable for what U.S. intelligence agencies said was meddling in the 2016 United States election, saying he misspoke in the joint news conference in Helsinki. "It's 24 hours too late, and in the wrong place", Schumer said.

National security adviser John Bolton, who tends to hold hawkish views against USA adversaries, also expressed concern but stopped short of advising a correction because it would make the president appear weak, reported Vanity Fair.
