Anderson Cooper on Trump-Putin Presser: ‘One of the Most Disgraceful Performances’ by a US President
CNN’s Anderson Cooper laid into President Donald Trump for his shocking remarks at the presser in Helsinki Monday with Russian President Vladimir Putin.
“You have been watching perhaps one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president at a summit in front of a Russian leader truly that I’ve ever seen,” Cooper said directly after Trump wrapped the presser.
“An extraordinary press conference,” he added before turning to his panel, which included CNN Chief International Correspondent Christiane Amanpour.
During the stunning press conference, Trump called into question the conclusions of US intelligence that Russia interfered in the 2016 elections despite overwhelming intelligence, said “both countries” were to blame for strained relations, and bashed the Democrats and the media for their desire to “resist and obstruct” diplomacy efforts.
