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.

Trump has denied collusion and casts Mueller's probe as a witch hunt that aims to detract from his election victory.

US intelligence officials have said Russian election interference efforts are continuing and now target the upcoming congressional elections in November.

After consultations between Trump and top White House officials, the White House told Justice not to hold off in announcing the indictment, the sources said.

He added: "We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match". "I take a back seat on no one on pressing this administration for some of the worst things that I've seen happen in public as it relates to our country".

She isn't the only Democratic lawmaker calling for questioning the translator. "There will always be adversaries who work to exacerbate domestic differences and try to confuse, divide, and conquer us", Rosenstein said.
