Trump Says Positive Things Will Come from His Meeting with Putin

WASHINGTON – US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday that “many positive things will come out” of the summit held on Monday in Helsinki with his Russian counterpart Vladimir Putin, a day after he reversed his remark regarding Russian interference in the 2016 US election.

“Putin and I discussed many important subjects at our earlier meeting. We got along well which truly bothered many haters who wanted to see a boxing match. Big results will come!” Trump wrote on Twitter.

After the barrage of criticisms he received for contradicting during a press conference with Putin claims made by several US intelligence agencies regarding alleged Russian interference in the US election, Trump responded saying “people at the higher ends of intelligence loved my press conference performance in Helsinki.”

The US President said that the meeting with Putin could “prove to be, in the long run, an even greater success” than the NATO meeting in Brussels, in which he pressured US allies to increase defense spending.

Although Trump contradicted on Monday US intelligence assessments that Russia attempted to interfere in the US election, saying he did not see any reason why Moscow would intervene, he backtracked on Tuesday, claiming he misspoke and that “the sentence should have been: ‘I don’t see any reason why it wouldn’t be Russia.’”
