Donald Trump faces criticism for backing Russia's claim that it did not interfere in 2016 Presidential election


US President, Donald Trump is facing criticism for backing Russia's claim that it did not interfere in the 2016 Presidential election. House Speaker Paul Ryan, said in a statement that there is no question that Russia continues attempts to undermine democracy in the United States and around the world. Veteran Republican Senator John McCain called Trump's news conference with Putin as one of the most disgraceful performances by an American president in memory.

At a summit with Russian President Vladimir Putin in Finland yesterday, Mr Trump contradicted US intelligence agencies, saying Russia had no reason to meddle. Earlier, US intelligence agencies concluded in 2016 that Russia was behind an effort to tip the scale of the US election against Hillary Clinton, with a state-authorised campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media.
Both Mr. Trump and Mr. Putin held nearly two hours of closed-door talks in the Finnish capital Helsinki and vowed a fresh start to troubled relations between the two countries. At their first one-on-one summit, both the leaders discussed a number of issuses and expressed a desire to co-operate on global challenges.
