Gowdy: Trump Advisers Should Weigh Quitting If He Doesn't Heed Russia Intel

U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch Mc Connell speaks to reporters at the Capitol as fallout continued over U.S. President Donald Trump's Helsinki summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Washington U.S

"There was a discussion between President Trump and President Putin about the resolution in Syria and how we might get the refugees back".

As many as 78 per cent of the voters want Mr Trump to defend North Atlantic Treaty Organisation allies, but 53 per cent said the USA president wants what is best for himself. "That is something we reserve for allies".

Trump faced a bipartisan tidal wave of criticism after a news conference with Putin in Helsinki where he gave credence to Putin's denials of Russian interference while seeming to question the conclusions of USA intelligence agencies.

Trump placed a large portion of the blame for the Helsinki summit backlash on the mainstream media outlets Monday, writing, "When you hear the Fake News talking negatively about my meeting with President Putin, and all that I gave up, remember, I gave up NOTHING, we merely talked about future benefits for both countries".

According to a Quinnipiac University poll taken after a summit between Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin, 51% of American voters said Russia had compromising information, while 35% did not believe it. Despite a slight increase, Trump's approval rating is still only 45 percent, among the lowest of any recent USA president at this point in his first term.

Trump's claim that Moscow would favor Democrats in the November 6 congressional contests - when the entire 435-member House of Representatives and a third of the Senate is up for election - is at odds with the US intelligence community's conclusion that Russian Federation meddled in the 2016 presidential election to help Trump win the White House.

The expression of concern about Russian meddling is a change in tone for the president, who has repeatedly expressed doubts about Russia's role in interfering in the 2016 USA election.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis said Tuesday there would be no cooperation with the Russian military in Syria - at least for now.

Dmitri Trenin, a former colonel in the Russian army and director of the Carnegie Moscow Center, agreed it might have been better for Putin to have adopted an approach of "strategic patience" with the United States, but said it was not too late.

Putin should have given Trump the chance to tell USA media that he had extracted concessions from him in a "giveaway game", staying focused on the longer-term goal of stabilizing ties between Moscow and Washington, Markov said on his Facebook page. Those without college degrees are almost three times as likely to say they have no opinion of Trump's performance. "I have great confidence in my intelligence people, but I will tell you that President Putin was extremely strong and powerful in his denial today", he added.

Senate Armed Services Committee Chairman John McCain (Republican-Arizona) has called Putin a "tyrant" and "America's enemy".
