“[Putin] said he didn’t meddle. I asked him again. You can only ask so many times. And I believe… I think he is very insulted by it.”
You know who else is insulted by it, Mr. President? The American people. You believe a foreign adversary over your own intelligence agencies. https://t.co/lZkQAch7CT

.@RealDonaldTrump, Maybe you should get your daily intelligence briefing from the Kremlin since you trust Putin more than American intelligence agencies.

That President Trump continues to deny Moscow’s effort to influence our elections on his behalf should put all Americans on high alert. This is an actual threat to our freedom. https://t.co/PTgycoE5bY

To be clear: Donald Trump, president of the United States, does NOT believe the 17 American agencies that make up the U.S. intelligence community re Russian meddling in the election. But he DOES believe former KGB agent Vladimir Putin. Let that sink in. https://t.co/FR2oY4Pk21
