On Tuesday, during a joint press conference with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven, President Donald Trump took credit for North Korea's openness to negotiate nuclear weapons.

"The Russians had no impact on our votes whatsoever", Trump said.

Trump again said he believes Russian Federation interfered in the 2016 race, but he again said other countries or individuals also could have tried to interfere.

President Donald Trump says North Korea "seems to be acting positively" after South Korea announced the North would halt nuclear weapons and missile tests and put its entire atomic arsenal up for discussion if the US agrees to enter a negotiation.

Trump, who has previously blasted Sessions for recusing himself from the investigation into Russian meddling and potential collusion with Trump campaign associates in the 2016 presidential election, slammed Sessions last week for appointing an "Obama guy" to lead the investigation into potential "massive" surveillance abuses. He said the U.S. was engaged in a very deep study of the past election, and that any attempts to influence it would be counteracted "very strongly".

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". President Donald Trump isn't budging on his worldwide tariff stance so far despite remarkably public pleadings from Speaker Ryan and other Republican allies to back off his threat and avoid a possible trade war.

"Clearly what we have done hasn't been enough", Rogers said.

Trump's chief economic adviser, Gary Cohn, resigned in the wake of disagreements over Trump's decision to move forward with aluminum and steel tariff.

Putin praised Trump as a great communicator who is easy to talk to, a man with whom "you can search for a compromise".

Asked whether he wishes he'd handled the accusations about Russian interference differently ahead of the 2016 elections, McConnell said, "No, I'm perfectly comfortable with the steps that were taken back then".

"I thought North Korea was terrific, they went into the Olympics, they went in with good spirit they did well, let's see if we can carry it over", he said. Trump will meet with Swedish business representatives midday Tuesday before his news conference.

The president said he planned to move forward with special tariffs on imported steel and aluminum, contending the US has always been "mistreated" in trade deals. "Not highly complex computers".

Trump shared the stage Tuesday with Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Lofven and, as is traditional, each leader called on two journalists.

"We're in very close contact".

"We'll counteract whatever they do".

The Senate's intelligence panel has made a point of distancing itself from its House counterpart, which has been embroiled in a nasty partisan fight centered on two competing surveillance memos. It also acts as a protecting power for the USA in the country.
