President Trump covered a lot of ground, but didn't give any in a contentious "60 Minutes" interview that aired Sunday night, railing against the "dishonest media", defending his relationships with Vladimir Putin and Kim Jong Un, expressing mistrust in unnamed aides and pointing out to Lesley Stahl that "I'm president and you're not".
Western countries imposed sanctions against Russian Federation after a former spy Sergei Skirpal and his daughter were poisoned. "Probably I mean, I don't ...,".
"Of course they shouldn't do it", the President added.
While Trump was eviscerated in the media for his handling of the Helsinki summit, a recent poll conducted by The Hill found that 54 percent of Americans support a second summit between the two leaders in Washington, and 61 percent say that better relations with Russian Federation are in the best interests of the United States. 'I don't know.' What neighborhood was it?
On the arms deal with Taiwan, which China has long claimed is not an independent nation but part of its sovereign territory, Cui said, "This is a very good example of American intervention in China's internal affairs".
"Lesley, it's OK", Trump said. You know what he sent?
When asked if he was ready to negotiate, Trump told CBS News: "I have a great chemistry with President Xi (Jinping) of China".More news: Is there a Huawei Mate 20 with a stylus coming?
When Trump lamented Democrats' treatment of Brett Kavanaugh during his contentious Supreme Court nomination process, Stahl asked the president why he didn't attempt to unify the country following Kavanaugh's confirmation. "But General Mattis is a good guy. Everybody. People leave. That's Washington".
Asked if he would pledge to refrain from interfering in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation, Trump refused, but continued his refrain of "no collusion". "I don't trust everybody in the White House, I'll be honest with you", Trump said.
"I don't pledge anything", Trump said.
"Sure. I know all these things. Now I say they're babies", Trump said.
Two earlier encounters between the presidents, he said, had made it "clear that such top-level communication played a key role, irreplaceable role in guiding the relationship forward".
Unveiling the new arsenal earlier this year, Putin warned that a failure to modernize its nuclear deterrent would expose Russian Federation to USA military pressure. On July 13, US Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein announced charges against another 12 individuals who were said to be Russian intelligence officers.
"You know what?" Trump added when told it appeared he had accused Ford of lying in a speech. Russian interference into U.S. elections is a matter of national debate in the US.
