Like a boy forced to say "I'm sorry" when he doesn't mean it, President Donald Trump has been sullenly trying to fix the problem he caused in Helsinki, Finland when he embraced Vladimir Putin and disrespected America's intelligence agencies and allies.
That day, Coats issued a statement strongly rebuking the president: "We have been clear in our assessments of Russian meddling in the 2016 election and their ongoing, pervasive efforts to undermine our democracy, and we will continue to provide unvarnished and objective evidence in support of our national security".
"I had a chance to speak with the president after his comments, and the president was - said, "Thank you very much, ' and was saying 'no" to answering questions", Sanders said.
Although, despite his admission about Russian interference and meddling, Trump said: "It could be other people also".
Bannon, a former Goldman Sachs banker, told the business-minded crowd that "free trade is a radical idea", and that tariffs are good for the economy. "We've recently heard that two more people suffered from the same nerve agent that is called Novichok, but I've never even heard the last names of these persons".
And in a move that could trigger further worldwide worry, he also cast doubt on U.S. commitment to Nato's central principle of mutual defense, calling out new member Montenegro and warning that its "very aggressive" people could draw the alliance into war with Russian Federation.
"Sorry, Hallie, go ahead if you want", said Fabian.

Trump says US-Russia relations ‘never worse’ ahead of meeting with Putin

Nishikori ready for war against Djokovic in Wimbledon quarter-final
It will be Djokovic's first semi-final at a major since the 2016 French Open when he completed the career Grand Slam. Novak Djokovic is feeling more optimistic after continuing his fine run at Wimbledon by reaching the quarter-finals.
Just like his Charlottesville response, Trump's reaction of distrusting his own intelligence community puts Republicans in a hard position of having to decide whether defend or rebuke Trump's comments.
As for Trump's "no" to question about Russian interference, the White House said he was refusing to take reporters' questions - not denying Russian meddling.
"The president's going to meet with his team, and we'll let you know when we have an announcement on that", she said, adding that neither Trump nor anyone else in the administration had committed to accepting the offer.
On Twitter, Trump said he had received praise for his heavily criticized news conference with Putin.
"The sentence should have been: "I don't see any reason why I wouldn't" or "why it wouldn't be Russia".
"I've said a number of times and I say it again, the Russians are not our friends and I entirely believe the assessment of our intelligence community", the Kentucky Republican said.
Sanders, who was in the room when Vega asked the question, said she interpreted it differently and was not reversing Trump's position.
