Meeting with his cabinet on Wednesday, President Donald Trump sided with Russian President Vladimir Putin over the United States intelligence community, contradicting his Tuesday attempts to clarify the Helsinki summit.
“Is Russia still targeting the United States?” a reporter asked Trump.
“No,” Trump replied, taking the side of the Kremlin over the conclusions of the intelligence community that Russia is currently meddling in the 2018 midterm elections.
“I would expect that there are going to be meetings about how they will clarify those comments again,” White House correspondent Kristen Welker predicted.
“The bottom line, the president yet again appearing to break with the findings of his own intelligence community,” Welker reported.
“For him, this becomes very personal,” she continued. “And that’s part of why you see him continually trying to turn the page and frankly, sweep this under the rug.”
JUST IN: President Trump said "no" when asked by reporters if Russia is still meddling in U.S. elections.

Trump tells Fox News the ‘Black Lives Matter’ sign on Fifth Avenue is like he’s being ‘prosecuted’
President Donald Trump appeared to reveal another quid pro quo during an interview with Fox News host Sean Hannity.
MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell pointed it out during an interview with Sen. Kamala Harris (D-CA).
"I was very nice to Mayor de Blasio. I got him ventilators when he needed them... I got him the gowns. I got him the masks. I got him everything. Then he throws a big Black Lives Matter sign right down in the middle of Fifth Avenue. I was so good to him and to Gov. Cuomo, like nobody's ever been good. And then all you end up doing out of that place is getting prosecuted."
