Trumps says Russian Federation had 'no impact' on 2016 election votes

Coats added that he didn't know what other names would be on Mnuchin's list, though the intelligence agencies had provided the Treasury Department with information on others. "If they want us to help out, we'll be there". But the White House never officially designated the targets of those sanctions, concluding in January that the threat of sanctions was by itself enough of a "deterrent".

"I've said from the beginning there were no votes that were affected as best we can tell", Burr told reporters.

Trump has previously disputed troves of evidence that Russians interfered in the 2016 presidential election. "I've conveyed that to the President", the PM said.

Trump spent his "executive time" Tuesday morning attacking Democrats on DACA and claiming it's "Fake News" that there's "CHAOS" in the White House - as he hinted someone in his administration is leaving or getting fired.

But when asked by Sen. But the president declined to discuss their relationship.

President Donald Trump said Tuesday that Russian Federation and probably other countries and individuals meddled in the 2016 presidential election - though it did not affect the outcome - and "we won't allow that to happen" in this year's midterm contests.

The Senate Intelligence Committee is expected to release recommendations later this month.

"When we're behind on every single country, trade wars aren't so bad", Trump said, apparently referring to the U.S.as being "behind" due to trade deficits.

"Probably there was meddling from other countries", Trump said during a news conference alongside Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven.

Any U.S. trade protections will be done "in a loving, loving way", Trump said.

He told reporters that hopefully it will go in a "very peaceful and lovely path" and it would be "a great thing for the world". The statement added that North Korea was willing to have a "heartfelt dialogue" with the United States as well.

"The Russians had no impact on our vote", Trump said during a press conference.

"No, because we'll counteract whatever they do", Trump said, going on to encourage states to include an analog backup to avoid attempts to hack electronic systems.

"No, because we'll counteract whatever they do", Trump answered.

Trump said in the fall elections states should deploy voting systems with paper backups, which he said is "old fashioned, but it's always good". He spoke highly of old-fashioned paper ballots as tough to hack and said he would counteract whatever Russian Federation tries to do.

"We've seen Russian bots and activities stirring up people on both sides of the gun debate after the shootings in Florida", the Virginia lawmaker said. If EU countries do not alter their trade tactics, Trump said the 25 percent steel tariff will apply to the automobiles they sell in America. "This is not a game". He says his administration is doing more, though, to protect the integrity of the upcoming midterms than it gets credit for.

The president also reaffirmed the possibility that Canada and Mexico might not face the tariffs if they are willing to offer more favorable terms under the North American Free Agreement, which is being renegotiated.

Coats agreed that the USA must do more to deter attacks.

He relented that previous administration that allowed 163,000 refugees to enter the country in 2015 was "not sustainable" and that Sweden was working with the European Union so that more countries took on 'their share of the responsibility'. "Kelly has taken the position that we need to shorten that list".

"I like conflict. I like having two people with different points of view and i certainly have that and I make a decision, But I like watching it".
