Trump was trying to make clear after his meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin that he fully supports the U.S intelligence community and its finding that Russia interfered in the 2016 elections.
Under pressure from his own party, Trump walked back his comments on Tuesday. Trump chose before, ultimately putting the issue into the spotlight just 72 hours before the high-stakes meeting, the people said.
"We've never had a president go overseas and not only lecture to our North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, but also to embarrass them", said Russian Federation expert William Pomeranz, deputy director of the Kennan Institute at the Wilson Center. "I think Liu He and others would like to move but haven't", Kudlow said.
Reading mainly from a prepared statement, Trump said on Tuesday he had complete faith in USA intelligence agencies and accepted their conclusions.
Standing side-by-side on stage with the man accused of complicity in an attack on the very bedrock of American democracy, Trump said his intelligence people "think it's Russian Federation". "But for the most part I don't see very many other people making that comparison".
Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell told reporters Tuesday that contrary to Trump's earlier statements that Europe is one of US "foes", allies in the European Union are USA "friends" while "the Russians are not". "Which we don't want to use, but we have tremendous powers", Trump said.
Amid bipartisan condemnation of his embrace of a longtime US enemy, Trump sought to end 27 hours of recrimination by delivering a rare admission of error Tuesday.
