U.S. director of intelligence Dan Coats says he in no way meant to be disrespectful toward President Donald Trump with what he calls his "awkward response" to news of a second planned Trump summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
The two leaders held a joint press conference later that day in which Trump appeared to accept what he called Putin's "strong" and "powerful" denials of Russian government interference in the 2016 presidential election. Russian Federation expert and Pulitzer Prize winning author William Taubman joined Carrie Saldo for a break down the Helsinki summit.
By the time Trump arrived back in the USA, the parade of critical statements had become a stampede, leaving the president the most isolated he'd been in the White House since last year's controversy over white supremacist protesters in Charlottesville.

The grandmother suffered about seven gunshot wounds and was listed in critical condition at a nearby hospital, the chief said. Around 1:30 p.m., police spotted the suspect driving his grandmother's vehicle in the Hollywood area and a pursuit began.
Trump adds on the Putin meeting: "Also, we got along very well, which is a good thing, except for the Corrupt Media!"
Trump waited 27 hours, sent five tweets and sat for two television interviews after his initial comments in Helsinki before claiming he'd used a confusing "double negative" and meant "would" instead of "wouldn't" in a key sentence at his press conference about who was responsible for election meddling.
Graham, citing the president's top intelligence chief Dan Coats, said that the "red light is blinking" and that he needs to "sit down with Congress and the administration and you lead this nation to hardening the 2018 election process before it's too late". "I don't understand the apparent blindness (Trump) has to Putin's hostile acts".

North Korea has accused South Korea of kidnapping them, while South Korea says they chose to resettle on their own will. Russians have done many things to enforce the sanctions and we deeply appreciate that", the USA state secretary added.
The president's handling of the Putin meeting had some in the media describing last week as the worst week of his presidency, and former CIA Director John Brennan went as far to describe Trump's behavior as "treasonous". On both questions, those who say they "strongly disapprove" of Trump's performance outnumber those who say they "strongly approve" by better than 2 to 1.
Overall, the poll showed Trump's approval rating is relatively low, standing at 45% among all registered voters.
Baier noted that Trump and the White House eventually corrected the Helsinki mistake, but Gowdy said it wasn't just about that one line. Instead, he directed his ire at Democrats and USA officials, calling special counsel Robert Mueller's probe of Russian interference a "disaster" and a "witch hunt".

It caps a stunning stretch for the 15th-ranked Molinari, who has won on the PGA and European Tours in the previous two months. Rose is No. 3 and almost joined them until he made an 18-foot birdie putt on the last hole to make the cut on the number.
Mr Coats has previously said Russian Federation has attempted to undermine U.S. democracy. Either the Trump campaign did collude with the Russians to perpetrate electoral fraud, in which case President Trump has committed treason, or it did not, in which case the President is placing his personal interest in countering challenges to the legitimacy of the election over the integrity of American democracy.
